MEC is a PC based
embedded controller designed for industrial applications.
The device contains no
components that are subject to mechanical wear-and-tear which makes it highly
robust, quiet and reliable hardware! Due to its low power consumption, a fan is
fitted with a 500Mhz AMD processor and is an ideal hardware platform for
applications designed to process a high volume of data points like our products
ipRoute and others.
It supports up to 1GB RAM.
Like all our systems
MEC has been designed for sustained continuous 24-hour operation and
maximum availability. System design followed our ‘simpler is better’ philosophy.
Each device that leaves our production has been subject to at least 48 hours’
of burn-in testing and several function tests.
Its architecture is highly
similar to that of conventional microcontroller based equipment, but it still
offers the hardware infrastructure required for an operating system such as
Linux or Windows.
Its compact measurements of
50x160x111mm W/H/D enable a space-saving integration even when there is only
limited room available.
The basic version of
MEC is fitted with four serial RS232 ports and two Ethernet adapters.
A CompactFlash with an
excellent MTBF ≥ 1,000,000 h
is used for storage.
Integrated LEDs offer a
number of diagnostic functions. A power indicator and a network controller
indicator show the current operation states. A CPU LED shows the
different software operating modes.
power supply is 18 to 75 VDC input which means it covers all popular voltages
such as 24, 48, 60 V DC.
The controller can be
upgraded with PC/104 cards!
