The smart-MAIC team has been developing hardware and software for monitoring and visual analysis of various processes in real time mode for more than seven years. It all started as usual - in a garage with a soldering station, an oscilloscope and a couple of computers, one of which was proudly called a server. With time, ideas grew into prototypes, prototypes into devices, devices into finished products. The developments are not finished, there will be more to please the users of our energy meters and owners of pulse counters.
