The successful development of a low-power and standalone DAQ system to be used with RPCs is presented. These will be used to measure the muonic component of cosmic-ray’s air showers. The system includes a front-end, high voltage, detector monitoring and a Central Unit to manage the different components of the system. The front-end is based on the MAROC ASIC coupled to an FPGA respecting the strict demands of field operations in cosmic-ray experiments. Prototypes were produced and deployed, performing as expected. An engineering array will be installed at the Pierre Auger Observatory.
