Data Acquisition Server – Aculink 810
Data Acquisition Server
Accuenergy’s AcuLink 810 is a data acquisition server and gateway designed to collect aggregated energy data from up to 32 Modbus meters and field sensors in a facility such as water, gas and electricity. This information is locally stored until it is ready to be distributed to remote servers or controllers via an IP-based network
AcuLink 810 provides an easy solution to manage, collect and store data from all connected metering points from a single web interface.
