We use Real Time Actionable Intelligence™ to give our customers an edge in the condition monitoring arena. Real Time Actionable Intelligence™ refers to our ability to combine local data acquisition with on-board data analytics to provide an enhanced condition monitoring for the industrial market.

By collecting, analyzing, storing and trending equipment data we create intelligence that can not only alert users to the need for immediate action, but also answer questions about future performance. In a field that currently has a shortage of experienced technicians, this allows for less people to accomplish more. This is the best of condition monitoring- averting problem in real time and preventing issues in the future while saving on manpower.

mCore®SDR is Monico’s Flagship Next Generation data acquisition platform for IIoT, remote monitoring, telematics applications, and edge analytics.

Designed for:

  • Industrial IoT connectivity (support for OMF and MQTT)
    • Acquire and integrate industrial asset data into OSIsoft® PI
    • Acquire and integrate industrial asset data into IIoT Solutions via MQTT
  • Industrial Cybersecurity
  • Data Buffering of OMF and MQTT
  • Rugged Package for harsh environments
  • Maximum Computing Power, Speed, and Efficiency


  • Industrial Protocol Translation
  • Secure Edge Data Collection/Transmission
  • Increased confidence of data capture integrity
