MDL-700TM is purpose-built by Dyacon engineers and natively includes specialized I/O required for environmental and site monitoring applications. System architecture is tuned to the unique needs of remote data collection and control.
The open-source operating system allows software developers to utilize familiar programming tools and data interfaces in order to create a custom solution in a short time. Programmers can build applications on their desktop or directly on MDL using Python, C, or C++.
Serial Expansion Module
Sensor expansion module can handle up to eight digital sensor connections.
Up to 16 ports can be supported by adding two modules on the sensor input (right) side of MDL-700.
- Eight serial ports
- Standard Linux serial port access
- Individually software selectable as RS-232 or RS-485
- Software controlled bias and termination resistors
- SDI-12 compatible ports
- Regulated 12.6 V power on each port
- Application accessible system current and voltage values
- Discrete pluggable terminal connectors for each sensor
Mixed Signal Input
EMMS-6™ is a general-purpose expansion module that gives users a combination of sensor input options. EMMS-6 may be used for applications requiring a range of inputs, such as the variety of sensors use in meteorological stations.
- RS-485 port with 6 connectors
- SDI-12 port
- 2x Pulse counters
- Frequency input
- 4x Analog inputs
Like other MDL sensor inputs, RS-485, SDI-12, and Analog input include power supply pins, reducing the rats nest of wires that occurs on other data logger solutions.
Analog Expansion Module
EMA-8™ 8-port analog to digital converter.
8-port Analog – 24-bit analog to digital converter
Each port includes 11.6 VDC regulated supply and +4 VDC reference as well as single-ended analog input.
