Powerful midrange embedded controller with a GPRS/UMTS cellular modem module (optional)

DOWNPerformance Overview
DOWNTechnical Details

The Midrange Embedded Controller MEC2 is suitable for industrial use in a critical environment. The MEC2 is built for rugged work environments and has impressive features.
The controller comes with a fanless Intel Atom processor, extra low power consumption and an industrial temperature range of -20° to +70°.

The device is equipped with four serial and two 1 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces as standard. The serial interfaces are software configurable as RS-232/RS-422/RS-485 interface.
Compared to the previous model MEC the MEC2 achieves the fivefold performance. Furthermore, the basic system can be equipped with appropriate MiniPCI Express cards.

The equipment with a wireless GPRS/UMTS cellular modem module incl. antenna and SIM socket is optional.

The IPCOMM hardware systems are delivered with a Linux operating system customized to our applications.

The MEC2 is suitable for mounting on a DIN-rail.
