ADLINK Technology has announced an Intelligent IoT Gateway Starter Kit, combining ADLINK’s MXE-202i intelligent IoT gateway, based on Intel Atom E3826 processors, EdgePro IoT device & sensor management application, one light sensor and corresponding siren output, Modbus TCP module, and accessories, all utilising industrial open standard protocol with security function powered by Intel IoT Gateway.
ADLINK’s IoT Gateway Starter Kit simplifies device-cloud connection, accelerates IoT application development, and speeds deployment for a wide variety of application environments such as industrial automation, smart buildings, smart parking systems, and agriculture.
The ADLINK EdgePro IoT device & sensor management application runs on the Intel IoT Gateway, integrating the Wind River Intelligent Device Platform (IDP) XT and McAfee Embedded Control to provide complete, pre-validated communication and security. EdgePro enables device and sensor management via plug-in(s) for field protocols including ZigBee (Home Automation Profile) and the commonly adopted fieldbus Modbus TCP for industrial automation, all easily configured with sensors or I/O nodes. Interaction across devices/sensors is accomplished by an Event Execution Engine, and a user-friendly Web-based dashboard allows remote monitoring of status and actuator control, with RESTFul Web-service APIs. In addition, EdgePro enables simple configuration of reliable and secure connectivity with Amazon and Windows Azure Cloud.
ADLINKs Matrix MXE-202i series Embedded IoT Gateway Platform is based on Intel Atom SoC processor E3826, with superior-class construction meeting a wide variety of specific industrial needs. The MXE-202i presents a sturdy aluminum housing withstanding industrial grade EMI/EMS to an EN 61000-6-4, 61000-6-2 specification, and is fully operable under even harsh conditions with operating shock tolerance up to 100G and an optional extended -20 to +70°C operating temperature range.
The MXE-202i provides two GbE LAN, two COM, two USB 2.0 and one USB 3.0 host ports, four optional isolated DI and four isolated DO, dual mini PCIe slots with one mSATA support and USIM socket support communication with connections such as WiFi, Bluetooth, and 3G cellular, to ensure interoperability between systems and maximise industrial connectivity for meeting most application requirements.
The MXE-202i also includes ADLINK’s proprietary SEMA application for quick setup of remote device management and analysis through ADLINK’s SEMA Cloud, enabling monitoring and collection of system health and status information from the hardware in a timely, flexible, and precise manner.
“ADLINK understands that customers require readily available solutions. In addition to providing a powerful IoT gateway platform in ultra-compact enclosure, ADLINK now further provides a complete IoT connection solution with our Intelligent IoT Gateway Starter Kit, enabling fast deployment and accelerating IoT application development, to further increase business value for customers“ said Roy Wan, General Manager, Measurement & Automation Product Segment, ADLINK.
The ADLINK IoT gateway MXE-101i, based on Intel Quark SoC X1021, is also available.
