Hardware Requirements for Micronite Installation 2-15 Stations

We recommend running Micronite under the Terminal Server. You will need to provide a server and terminal stations for the shop floor (see requirements below).

  1. OS: Windows Server currently supported version(s).
  2. The Server OS can run under VM environment.
  3. We recommend using Intel XEON Scalable processors with Base Frequency of at least 3.5 GHz. The number of cores and threads depends on the number of Micronite stations.
  4. RAM: 16G/32G Bytes (Depending on the number of users)
  5. HARD DRIVES: One Micronite station might produce 1-2GB of data per year.
    We recommend separate hard drives/arrays for OS and data for improved performance. We recommend SSD SAS and/or NVMe drives and RAID 1 or 5 configuration depending on your company’s requirements.
  6. Proper number of Server connection and Terminal Server Licenses.
  7. Backup: Daily Basis.
  8. Able to access files on automated measurement systems (Optional if CMM/Vision/etc. are used)
  9. Able to access network printers, printer drivers installed.
  10. Adobe Professional installed (optional for some report generation)
  11. Microsoft Excel (optional for some report generation)
  12. Internet connection (optional for Micronite support)
  13. Team Viewer (optional for remote support via Micronite Personnel)

Requirements for stations to run Micronite under Terminal Services:

  1. Any computer with Remote Desktop Connection can be used as a Terminal Station on the shop floor.
  2. We require monitors with at least 1920×1080 resolution (FullHD), and at least a 26” LCD display.
  3. Network connection
  4. Printer (Optional), if users will print reports.
  5. Gage Interface IF digital Gages are connected to station:
    • Working COM port or “USB to Serial” connection for gage interfaces
    • Gage Interface(s) to connect electronic gages to the computer

See Appendix A: for Example

Requirements for programmable inspection instruments (CMM, OGP, Vision, etc.)

  1. Network Connection
  2. Output file location for these devices must be ‘shared’ and on the same network as the Micronite Stations and Server with full access rights for users

Hand Gages (Standard)

Ideally Capable of sending Electronic output Manual entry is available if not possible

Appendix B: Micronite Connection Diagram


  • Workstations and Top Stations utilize RDP protocols to communicate to the server
  • Hand Gage measurements are automatically (or manually if gage is not capable) passed to the Server Database
  • CMM output files are automatically recorded into the Server Database
  • Vision System output files are automatically recorded into the Server Database
  • Database stores all measurements from multiple inputs into one central database
  • Network printing can generate all necessary reports with a click of a button from either a Workstation of a Top Station
