Hierarchical Internet-oriented microserver systems for remote experimental data asquisition and processing
Hardware-software complex for development of distributed informational-measurement microcontroller systems with microserver Internet access based on hierarchical structures of multilevel measurement systems was developed. New structural and technical solutions for multilevel data acquisition systems were suggested. The system is built as a two-level microserver Ethernet-network of virtual measurement modules. Test samples of basic hardware/software tools were designed. The system allows Ethernet synchronization, using Sensor Plug-and-Play technology, supports such common digital interfaces as RS-232/485, SPI, 1-WIRE, I2C, provides microcontroller implementation of the TCP/IP stack and client applications made in LabVIEW and JAVA.
