In order to ensure maximum system availability and performance in industrial computers, all hardware components must offer functional reliability. The monitoring electronics for microcomputer packaging systems (MPS) offers a highly flexible, scalable security concept for key parameters such as temperature, voltage and fan speed. At the heart of this concept are intelligent function modules such as controller, temperature, fan and LCD display or LED display modules. The system may be polled, or parameters set via the Internet using remote control functions, thanks to compatibility with the Wakefield-Vette CMC-TC monitoring system. Alternatively, this may be executed directly on the MPS system, via a PC, or with the aid of CMC-TC, directly from a control point.
