In the paper, concept of intelligent microsystem structure is presented. This concept is applicable in general surrounding environment. Concrete model of an intelligent temperature microsystem for control purposes is designed. Microsystem function has been verified on a realized hardware model. The system is composed of sensors, actuators and part for control and data processing. Communication is performed using wireless radiofrequency signal transmission. System activity is controlled by a microprocessor. User communicates with the system using a keyboard. A central unit enables connection of up to 15 external sensor units. Presented system works in temperature range from 0 oC to 50 oC with precision of 0.2 oC, communication range is 50 m, control of temperature hysteresis in the range 0.2 to 6 oC.
