Linux-based Data Logger iPCX

Flexibility in the field

The iPCX data logger speaks many of the common and standardised data protocols and field buses. Measurements concerning electricity, gas, water, heat etc. can be easily connected as well as operating and production data of all kinds. At least 1000 running measurements from widely spread sensors, counters, automation stations etc. can be monitored in a parallel manner - via a 2-wire fieldbus, wirelessly or via network. Measured values are bundled and transmitted in real time to a shared and freely adjustable platform. Our security architecture for data transfer always receives top marks from the IT executives of large-scale customers.

The iPCX is a compact, powerful all-rounder that can be used flexibly and is easy to operate with modern HTML configuration interfaces - despite its extensive functionality. The hardware basis is a robust, fanless industrial PC based on Linux with large data memory.
