Adlink, a company distributed by Acquisys, a specialist in modular lInstrumentation, has just introduced two new DAQ modules with Ethernet interface, the MCM-216 and MCM-218.
These ultra-compact modules are based on ARM Cortex-A9 processors and can run autonomously, without a host PC. They are ideally suited for IIoT sensor measurement and 24-hour status monitoring applications. Thanks to Gb Ethernet communication, data can be transmitted quickly to the central site. Both Ethernet ports enable daisy-chain connections that reduce the cost of network equipment and extend the communication distance.
The MCM-216 and MCM-218 modules integrate a web console, allowing them to be configured and used from a simple web explorer.
The main features are listed below:
- 16-way input Voltage, 250 Ke/s, 16-bit (MCM-216)
- 8-way input Current, 250 Ke/s, 16-bit (MCM-218)
- 2 analog output channels, voltage or current, 100 Ke / s, 16 bits
- 4 digital inputs and 4 digital outputs
- 2 ports Ethernet RJ45 et 2 ports USB
- 1GB DDR3 RAM and 4GB Flash (eMMC)
- DC power supply 9 to 30 V
- API RESTfull
The MCM-216 and MCM-218 modules complete Adlink's range of MCM modules. This includes the MCM-100, a monitoring system for rotating machines, and the MCM-204 with 4 IEPE channels 128 Ke/s and 24 bits of resolution.
