Merlin Plus Box™ combines the concept of the ease of use with a hardware architecture platform like a "Black Box". It has been packed with the best in compact size, connectivity, reliability, performances and embedded technologies such as a powerful SSD memory.

Merlin Plus Box™ comes with the Microsoft® operating system, Windows® 7 Embedded, the most powerful advanced embedded operating system. It features the Intel® ATOM™ Cedarview processor for fast performance, a responsive user interface and captivating graphics. Merlin Plus Box™ is a fanless, diskless computer provided in a sealed, compact and shop floor proof enclosure. This embedded architecture avoids the use of wear & tear parts like fans or rotating media, therefore Merlin Plus Box™ comes across as a robust, reliable, maintenance free system.

Merlin Plus Box™ is capable of collecting data acquired by several external measurement devices, made by Marposs® or third-parties. The measurements are easy to read by a numeric digital graphical layout through an external LCD display, with or without an integrated touch-screen. Using the touch screen would allow programming operations without any external input device.

Merlin Plus Box™ offers innovative software features capable of acquiring data from cabled and wireless measurement devices and it provides a basic statistical control software (SPC). Data could be stored, in CSV or DFQ format, locally or exported to an external USB stick or through a LAN network. Merlin Plus Box™ offers an easy-to-use user interface supporting both multi-language and multi-user management.
