MERLIN MTC-One

Incorporate sensor-based process-driven data

MERLIN MTC-One satisfies the craving for more and more process-driven data. This hardware product in the MEMEX smart manufacturing tool-kit features convenient USB plug-ins for sensors. Once those sensors are connected, MTC-One works with MERLIN Tempus to collect, visualize and analyze real-time analog input data from temperature, humidity, noise level, power consumption, vibration, acceleration and other sensor-driven data.

The availability of this process-driven data along with the ability to easily create unique visualizations of it erases the need for “integrator custom code” and associated system errors and maintenance issues. Instead, almost any process to be measured and tracked as part of a data-driven manufacturing deployment.

A new breed of IIoT/Industry 4.0 technology, MTC-One equips your machine tools and assembly, production or processing line with the true power of edge computing. Take control of your shop floor and optimize efficiency by monitoring up to 110 sensor devices with a single MTC-One. Furthermore, leverage its dual Ethernet ports and the wireless capability to dramatically reduce production interruption and minimize the reoccurring costs associated with cable installation.
