MERLIN™

EMBEDDED GAUGE COMPUTER

MERLIN™ - EMBEDDED GAGE COMPUTER

Specifically designed for simple measuring applications in the shop floor environment up to 16 sensors/measurements and basic statistic analysis, Merlin™; represents a new concept of gage computer using the same technologies created for PDA and portable electronics, for data collection from traditional or wireless measuring devices.
Embedded technology allows: small dimensions (the whole system footprint is smaller than an A4 sheet of paper), fanless architecture and no moving parts (flash disk storage media), assuring the highest level of system reliability.
Merlin gage software based on Microsoft® Windows CE 5.0 guarantees a friendly and easy to use operator interface. Its touch-screen designed human interface allows to program and acquire measures without any additional input/command device.
