The Cube67 diagnostics gateway by Murrelektronik gets a new user interface

The Cube67 Diagnostics Gateway fieldbus system is a high-performance fieldbus system that provides technicians with extensive diagnostics and facilitates monitoring, maintenance and repairs of several systems and machines.

The diagnostics gateway itself is connected as a device to the bus and then communicates status and error information wirelessly to a tablet.

The information is then updated to real-time, allowing for example an immediate verification of all repairs. 

Web Beats Native

While the prototype was designed to communicate via bluetooth to an Android tablet, the release candidate in the end got a WiFi interface. This happened to account for the usage of the device in highly secure areas, that for example would prohibit the use of devices with built-in cameras.
