The Measurement and Control Interface (MCI) provides a powerful interface for doing process control, data acquisition and logging. In its basic form, the MCI is a “dumb” device, i.e. it must be used with a controller of some sort – typically a PC but could be a PLC or any other controlling device. RS232, RS485 and USB interfaces are provided for connecting to the MCI. For applications which may require several data acquisition or control points - up to 32 MCIs can be can be multi-dropped on one pair of twisted wires at a distance of up to 1,000 meters.
Applications:
2 MW DC arc furnace monitoring.
 Leach plant control.
 Electroplating control system.
Crystallization plant control.
Irrigation multi-acid pH control system.
Distributed ammonia gas monitoring system.
Stack gas acid monitoring system.
Automated acid dilution system.
High current galvanostatic/potentiostatic measurement control system.
Fabric dying control system.
Cheese factory cleaning cycle and pasteurizer monitoring.
Bacterial growth control system.
Multiple motor current monitoring system.
Can be used with the Process Signal Multiplexer to expand the number of analogue inputs - up to 64 analogue inputs at very low cost.
Second improved version now available - proven first design introduced eight years ago.
Imbedded firmware can be adapted to suit particular applications for medium to higher volume applications.
Customised applications for use without a PC also available with Ethernet connectivity.
Comprehensive collection of application notes.
Applications include radio communications and ethernet connection using an interface adaptor.
E-mail reports, SMS alarms and status reporting.
Remote dial-up.
Viewing and control over networks.
Can be used with any of our other 12 plus Remote Magic products

Customized applications can be developed using Visual Basic, Delphi and C.
An Active-X Control is also available for the Remote Magic Family Interface which allows direct use with Microsoft Excel, Visual Basic, C or any other Windows program which supports Active-X.
The MCI is useful in any laboratory where simple logging or control is required using a personal computer. In this case the user can write a program to do exactly the job required.
Communications signal isolation affords protection of the controlling equipment against high  industrial potentials, surges and spikes.
Eighteen front panel LEDs can be controlled and used to indicate various things.
The MCI can be located simply on a desktop or screwed vertically to a panel. For permanent mounting, four holes are provided in the MCI bottom corners for bolting the MCI securely vertically or horizontally.
