Programmable IoT/M2M mobile gateway

The MC Technologies MC100 is a robust, industrial purpose platform for fast implementation of own IoT/M2M applications, e.g. for the connection of machines or sensors. What makes it special? The small box with pre-installed Linux (optionally supplied with JAVA VM) is programmable and can be transformed into a multifunctional platform using modular extension boards. Optional extras include, among other things, individual machine interfaces; sensor interfaces; analogue inputs; digital in- and outputs; WLAN; an M-Bus interface; MQTT protocol; etc. The internal interfaces have an open design to allow users to make extensions. Data is stored on the integrated Flash memory and a micro SD card.

The MC100 provides the basis for a flexible IoT/M2M platform concept. Extension boards allow a single software programme to be used for an infinite number of applications without modifications being required. The module is already prepared for the most widespread Cloud-based management systems. In addition to this, MC Technologies support includes services to port customer applications to MC100 modules or to develop customized IoT/M2M applications.

Typical MC100 applications include mobile network-based remote maintenance access to industrial control systems or machine components as well as the transmission of data from Ethernet-enabled machines and systems to a control centre.
