Designer and manufacturer of embedded x86 motherboards and appliances for OEMs, WIN Enterprises, has announced the WIN IoT-380 Gateway, an entry-level embedded IoT device designed for device control and the streaming of data from sensors and components deployed on a manufacturing line. Communications are via wired or wireless links to back-end servers located at the network’s edge.
The edge servers are used for more comprehensive analytics, data aggregation and filtering, and issuing M2M or human alerts.
These back-end servers, in turn, pass filtered data to a cloud-based server for additional analytics, reporting, and archiving. These four technology layers create an integrated IIoT system for more efficient manufacturing.
The WIN IoT-380 is a production line gateway that interfaces with sensors and actuators on the manufacturing line and an edge gateway that is used to further refine data and pass it on to a cloud-based server for storage and further analytics.
The WIN IoT-380 gateway is configured with CPU, memory and connectivity to flexibly address a host of IoT needs. The processor is the Intel Atom E3826 an energy-efficient CPU which supports virtualisation and Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology. These gateways are designed to operate in environments such as manufacturing facilities, oil rigs, remote power stations, and transportation systems where wide operating temperature ranges and tolerance for high levels of shock and vibration are required.
The IoT-380 gateways are complete solutions designed to be easy-to-use and quick-to deploy. A wide range DC power input (DC 5-32V) and wall or VESA mounting allows for flexible installation.
