Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. has announced the release of its MELIPC Series of industrial-use computers for data computing, edge computing, remote monitoring, and the integration of hardware and software technologies. The MELIPC Series is targeted towards OEMs and end users running general manufacturing applications, and especially those who require a computing and data monitoring solution that takes up a limited amount of space with a small footprint. Most importantly, MELIPC is designed to enable Internet of Things (IoT) on factory floors that have not been introduced to it yet, or improve it where it is already enabled. 

MELIPC releases with four initial models: MI1000, MI2000, MI3000, and MI5000. MI5000, the flagship product, combines real-time equipment control and information processing in one solution. MI3000 contains a touch screen LCD panel and pre-installed software that allows users to run it as if it were an HMI. The midrange MI2000 is designed for wide-ranged system expansion, and the compact, low-cost MI1000 enables companies to begin introducing IoT on their factory floors. All four models can be purchased standalone with Windows® 10 IoT Enterprise 2016 installed, or can be purchased together with software as a comprehensive MELIPC data solution.

MI5000 includes two operating systems, VxWorks® and Windows. It is compatible with the CC-Link IE Field industrial network, enabling high-speed data exchange at speeds of up to 1ms for real-time equipment control. It also uses Edgecross, an open software platform, to process and distribute data. All models in the MELIPC Series are have Windows preinstalled and various software that allows for edge computing and high speed data transmission.

“More and more manufacturing floors are beginning to take edge computing into consideration,” said Agnieszka Zupancic, product manager at Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. “It allows them to process the data where it is generated, instead of a centralized location, leading to faster speeds and efficiencies. MELIPC combines edge computing technology with the industrially-hardened products and effective networks and software our customers have come to expect from us.”

DanfossWith more than one million square feet of exhibit and meeting space, the LEED Platinum-certified Enercare Centre at Exhibition Place in Toronto, Ontario, is the ninth-largest convention centre in North America. Located on the shores of Lake Ontario, the convection centre experiences the extreme weather that the Great Lakes region is known for – with temperatures ranging from -31°C (-24°F) to 40°C (105°F).

That puts a big burden on Exhibition Place’s HVAC equipment to keep the pace comfortable for more than 5.5 million visitors attending meetings, conventions, and exhibitions throughout the year.

Motor Feature


50 HP 1-to-3 Microgrid Power Source Single Phase Power Solutions introduces the 50 HP 1-to-3 Microgrid Power Source featuring a patented BELLE Motor with Written-Pole technology to deliver three-phase power from single-phase utility service. The 50 HP 1-to-3 can be used to operate a 25 HP motor three-phase motor, and multiple other motors up the remaining 25 HP of capacity. Ideal for areas without three-phase service, this revolutionary approach eliminates the high fuel and maintenance costs, and the pollution of fossil-fuel-powered Gen-Sets, while delivering superior power quality to that of a conventional phase converter.  It is far more cost effective than extending 3-phase power where it is not currently available.
