How does factory machine data acquisition work? How does Advantech's MIC-18XX mini industrial PC get the job done?
When you need a compact platform to acquire analog signals and also provide advanced functions including analog triggers or waveform generators, Advantech’s new MIC-1800 series (MIC-1810 / MIC-1816) with multi-function, 16-ch, 12/16-bit resolution, and up to 1MS/s sample rate is an excellent choice.
MIC-1810 and MIC-1816 units provide sample rates as high as 500K / 1M respectively that allow you to acquire enough data to display the measured waveform completely.
For analog input, you can set an analog trigger to start collecting data only when a certain threshold is crossed, so unnecessary signals can be filtered out. MIC-1800 devices also have built-in waveform generators, so there is no need for you to purchase extra hardware.
The compact MIC-1800 series has a detachable terminal block for direct connection with sensor signal lines. This saves space and eliminates some wiring as well. DIN-rail mounting makes the MIC-1800 series compatible with distribution boxes and control cabinets for many different kinds of factory machinery.
