With a 32-bit 400 MHz ARM9 CPU and a wide range of connectable K-bus or E-bus I/O terminals, the unit acts as a universal small controller for a wide range of applications, and is fully interoperable with the company's power measuring terminals to serve as a compact data collector that supplies all information via OPC UA, enabling comprehensive energy management. The embedded PC features a switched Ethernet port and supports OPC UA, the established protocol for vertical integration within modern plant environments. Bus terminals (K-bus) and EtherCAT terminals (E-bus), as modular I/O systems, can be connected directly to, and automatically identified by the unit. In this way, a multitude of signals can be acquired locally - for example, via the numerous I/O terminals for energy data acquisition and many other types of measurement.
