ADLINK MCM 216218 400x275ADLINK Technology, which develops edge computing technologies, has added the MCM-216 and MCM-218 models to its MCM-210 standalone Ethernet DAQ series. The standalone dedge devices permit mass deployment of Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications, including test & measurement and condition monitoring scenarios.

The MCM-216/218 Ethernet DAQ, based on ARM Cortex-A9 processors with built-in 16- or 8-channel, 16-bit, provides voltage or current input, and can function as a standalone edge device without a host PC. The device supports edge computing and includes a built-in web console and RESTful API for periodic machine condition polling.

“These two new models complete the ADLINK Edge DAQ series, which represents a new generation DAQ solution in the market,” said Jeremy Wu, director of IoT Solutions & Technology business unit at ADLINK. “These ultra-compact new models are ideally suited for 24-hour sensor measurement and condition monitoring of IIoT applications.”

ADLINK said the MCM-216 and MCM-218 represent a simple, scalable, sustainable edge device to overcome the challenge of mass deployment in IIoT applications. Dual daisy-chainable Ethernet ports eliminate additional networking equipment and extend the usable distance, reducing TCO and boosting overall ROI. Successful applications include semiconductor factory digitization, petrochemical plant monitoring, and wafer feeder vacuum pump monitoring.

The standalone Ethernet DAQ system can perform the tasks of a DAQ system without the complexity and added cost of an embedded system. This includes:

The MCM-216 /218 models complete the MCM-200 series and provide a full-spectrum edge DAQ solution for factory automation, IIoT, and traditional testing and measurement, ADLINK said.  For more information, visit the product page here.
