Data sheet:


  • Motherbox easy start

Measurement data concentrator for distributed Web-IOs incl. open Webserver for individual applications

Use the Motherbox to bundle measurement data from any number of analog and digital Web-IOs as well as Web-Thermographs on one device. Simply specify for each available measuring point in the network an individual interval in which you want the current data to be automatically polled and archived in the internal memory of the Motherbox. Combine the archived measuring points into profiles and thereby generate measurement meaningful overviews which are tailored to your application.


General function

Cyclical polling of the Web-IOs results in a consolidated measurement database in the Motherbox. From here you can recall the history of measuring data profiles, individual measuring points and complete Web-IOs directly in your browser, or access the measurement database for migrating the data into your application using for example ODBC and SOAP.

The internal web server also allows you to upload from your own web pages, which enables creation of web-based applications. For example you can prepare and display archived measurement data for a specific application.

General information

  • NEW! Create interactive visualizations with the Site-Creator which can be opened in any browser

  • Inventorying of Web-IOs per web-based WuTility
  • Central database with measurement values from any number of Web-IOs, with access using standardized interfaces (browsers, ODBC, SOAP)
  • Combine various Web-IOs in measurement data profiles and create application-specific overviews
  • Use a web server for your own applications and upload web and PHP pages to the Motherbox
  • Run PHP scripts cron- and event-triggered (e.g. for server applications)
  • 750MB for user files (measurement database, user Web and PHP pages, etc.)
