Engicam showcased its entire product lineup at electronica (Munich, Germany).

Exposing at tradeshows can be challenging for hardware manufacturers: how do you make technical features quickly accessible to visitors passing by? This is why the team decided to partner with us and equip one of their MicroGEA-based products with Connhex Edge.

The entire process was seamless - we just flashed the image and booted the board.

The idea was to create a livestream of what was happening on the module under different load conditions. Connhex Edge was coupled with the System Monitor addon and configured to track:

  • Memory usage
  • CPU usage
  • Network traffic
  • Disk ops

All metrics were stored on a Connhex instance dedicated to Engicam and displayed on the standard Grafana System Monitoring dashboard.

Relying on Wi-Fi connectivity at tradeshows can be challenging, typically because of channel saturation: this was not the case, thanks to auto-reconnect policies.

All network hiccups were managed autonomously by Connhex Edge - after reconnect events, no samples were missing.
