New Zealand company launches Palm OS based device  for diagnostic measurement
Aceeca Limited is a New Zealand electronics company that will be using the Palm OS in a new diagnostic measurement handheld to address the needs of enterprise and industrial instruments markets. With its new device, called the Meazura, Aceeca is helping to create a new class of products called Industrial Digital Assistants, or IDAs. According to Alex Topschij, CEO of Acceca Ltd, there is huge untapped opportunity for Industrial Digital Assistants (IDAs) in markets such as Agriculture, Automotive, Transportation and Utilities among others.

Aceeca’s new mobile handheld device, the Meazura, features a proprietary expansion slot, called the MZIO, that allows third party developers to add custom modules. MZIO is a proprietary interface developed by Aceeca to specifically meet the requirements of interfacing sensor signal conditioning circuitry as well as external memory cards to the main microprocessor and internal memory.

The MZIO provides developers with various options for communications with the system processor and memory and minimizes the amount of development effort required to interface with virtually any sensor. These mobile sensors can enable government and scientific agencies to monitor things like vibration, displacement and temperatures and provide mobile in-the-field measurement solutions for a wide range of industries, including agriculture, automotive, aviation, geology, machinery maintenance and medical.

With Meazura, Aceeca is helping to create a new class of products called Rugged Modular Digital Assistants, or RMDAs. As a mobile development platform for portable applications, Meazura features include:

  • MZIO expansion capability
  • Interchangeable measurement modules
  • Rugged industrial strength design.
  • Powered by Palm OS 4.1
  • Motorola Dragonball 33MHz microprocessor
  • 16 megabytes SDRAM
  • 4 megabytes of Flash memory
  • IRDA, RS232 and USB communications
  • 1900mAh Lithium Ion rechargeable battery.
