Data Acquisition

360-Degree Integration

Every unique problem calls for a unique solution. Please contact PCU today to see how we can create a custom designed solution specifically for your manufacturing facility.

This customizable Data Acquisition and Mining Module is built on an embedded PC housed in a rugged industrial enclosure, which can be mounted directly on a machine or accessed remotely via an Ethernet connection. The ADAM-8 advanced data collection software suite enables manufacturing companies to reliably collect, monitor, and evaluate production data used to manage operations. Available for either the Windows® or Linux® operating system, this application has the flexibility to retrieve data from a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC®), store it within a standard database structure, generate printable reports, and display the data in a convenient Web-enabled interface; all from the comfort of one’s own office.
