Compact and robust

The µMIC.200 with its casing of only 62 mm in width is ideally suited for DIN top hat rail mounting and is about 25% smaller than common control units. Compared with other control units the µMIC.200 from MicroControl works in a larger temperature range at a wider supply voltage range.

Innovation by Integration

The experience from numerous individual customer projects has gone into the development of our CANopen automation controller. We analysed the specific requirements and operating conditions of our customers’ applications and integrated the findings into our µMIC solution. The result is an automation controller that offers more than conventional PLC controllers.

Possible fields of application for an IoT gateway, automation controller and top-hat rail PC

What is an IoT-Gateway?

An IoT gateway in the context of fieldbuses acts as a link between various fieldbus protocols and the higher-level IoT infrastructure. It collects data from field devices, translates it into a standardised format and enables seamless integration into the cloud or other central systems. The IoT gateway facilitates communication between different fieldbus systems, improves interoperability and enables efficient monitoring and control of IoT applications in industrial environments.

Top-hat rail PCs in industrial processes

A DIN top-hat rail PC is a specialised computer that has been developed to be mounted on a DIN top-hat rail in industrial control cabinets. Due to its compact design, a top-hat rail PC is particularly suitable for applications with limited space. These PCs are equipped with special fastening elements that facilitate easy installation on a top-hat rail. In industrial environments, top-hat rail PCs perform important control and automation tasks. Thanks to their robustness, they are resistant to vibrations and changes in temperature. The modular top-hat rail PCs offer a wide range of interfaces for seamless integration into industrial control systems. Their flexibility allows them to be customised to the specific requirements of different industrial processes.

Use cases of automation controllers

Automation controllers are compact electronic control devices that are used in automation and controlling of processes in various applications. They typically have a modular structure consisting of a CPU (Central Processing Unit), I/O modules (input and output modules) and communication interfaces. These systems facilitate precise control of machines, systems and industrial processes. Due to their size, automation controllers are particularly suitable for applications where space is limited. They are used in various industries such as manufacturing, building automation, transport technology and agriculture. Automation controllers can take on complex tasks in controlling, monitoring and automation, which means they are an essential part of modern control systems. Their flexibility allows them to be easily adapted to different requirements, they help to increase efficiency and reduce costs in industrial processes.
