MDS-Industrial Display System

Based on AM437x SoC from TI, the MDS-Industrial Display System provides localized monitoring and distribution for critical equipment, helping reduce operational costs without compromising on production schedules or product quality.


Commercial and Light Industrial applications often require localized monitoring and control of critical equipment such as Electrical Distribution, HVAC, Water Management, etc. The MDS-Industrial Display System from Mistral provides localized monitoring and distribution, enabling critical equipment with the intelligence and control that is needed to support strategic decisions and establish best energy practices.

The MDS is based on the AM437x SoC from Texas Instruments. It can read multiple downstream Sensor PCBs via an EtherCAT Protocol and display the data to a local display or stream it to the Cloud or Enterprise Server. It helps in reducing operational costs without compromising on production schedules or product quality. The MDS can be used in Distribution Units, Remote Control Panels, Branch Circuit Monitoring or at end feed for data collection from various sensor modules.
