MeteoDAS linux embedded
The MeteoDAS® pro was developed with the aim of supplying a very versatile, low power, flexible and user-friendly product, while keeping as few variants as possible.
The MeteoDAS® pro is based on the Atmel SAMA5D3 microprocessor, and it has 256 MB RAM and 512 MB NAND Flash. It has a combination of several features, including a power supply, a charger for Li-Ion batteries, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, a 4G/5G modem, a GPS receiver, 16 analog inputs, 8 digital inputs, 8 digital outputs and multiple serial connections. These functions and the software developed for the device make this product very useful in many standalone applications.
The device is delivered with a Linux operating system preinstalled. The system has a web interface for configuration, accessible through a direct USB connection to a PC, through Wi-Fi or Ethernet. It has the capability to run applications for data logging and event-based actions.
The device has 16 isolated analog inputs (±10V and 0-10V/0-20mA), enabling data acquisition with a resolution up to 24 bits. 8 digital inputs and 8 digital outputs (all opto-isolated) allow the user to control or be controlled by auxiliary equipment.
All connections are accessible through standard connectors and easy to use push-wire terminals.
The power supply can be backed-up by an external Li-Ion battery. A built-in charger with MPPT functionality will ensure that the battery is fully charged. A power down mode with wake-up on timer or multiple inputs allows very long operation on battery power.
The MeteoDAS® pro is ideal for data logging and alarm systems, and it withstands extended temperatures, shock and vibration of mobile equipment.
There are three standard configuration options within the MeteoDAS® pro series. The differences lie with different modem configurations. Besides the option of having no modem installed, the MeteoDAS® pro comes with the option of having either a low power modem or a high-speed modem.
The low power modem supports NB-IoT and CAT-M with 2G fall-back. It also has the option of communicating over LoRaWAN. The high-speed modem supports LTE CAT4 with 2G fall-back. Both modems have a built-in GPS receiver. External SMA connections are available for RF-signals.
