The Cyclone Industrial Node is an Ethernet-based data acquisition node used. The Node includes 12 fully-featured measurement channels, each with 2 precision ADCs, various digital sensor interfaces, and general purpose I/Os.
The Industrial Node is configured for data routing and synchronization based on the deployment. Once the routing is configured, the customer will receive the data on the target server automatically.
Measurement channels are configured automatically based on the Cyclone Smart Connector. When a sensor is selected for use, the sensor is wired to the connector. Inside each connector is a memory module, which stores the configuration information and serial number of the sensor. This memory module is configured as a modified version of IEEE 1451.4.
