AIG-300 IIoT gateways integrate Azure IoT Edge for remote management
Addressing the challenge of a secure and reliable industrial IoT (IIoT) gateway which offers regular security patches to remedy system vulnerabilities, Moxa offers the AIG-300 series. The IIoT gateways come with Azure IoT Edge for quick and reliable connectivity to the cloud.
IIoT gateways need to be highly secure and reliable to facilitate seamless edge-to-cloud data acquisition and device management, explained Moxa. The AIG-300 IIoT gateway seamlessly integrates Azure IoT Edge and is powered by ThingsPro, for data acquisition and device management. Data collected from devices can be transferred to Azure IoT Edge and then on to the Azure IoT Hub with a few simple configuration steps, said Moxa. Devices can also be effectively managed via the Azure IoT Hub to the Azure IoT Edge on the IIoT gateways.
Most IIoT applications are deployed in remote, unmanned, and harsh environments such as a smart grid, energy storage systems, solar fields, oil and gas refineries, and rail-side railway applications. All of these need to maintain normal operations and monitor the device status. The AIG series gateways have a wide operating temperature range and low power consumption, making them suitable for these environments.
The AIG series gateways has resume file transmission, support over the air (OTA) upgrades and secure boot. They can be located in remote sites and upgraded, and maintained to ensure their continuous availability as well as protected against cyberattacks, added Moxa. To avoid disconnections during device crashes and sudden shutdowns, the AIG series comes with built-in recovery functions to enable rollback to the previous stable version of the firmware for uninterrupted network connectivity at remote sites. When a software upgrade fails, the gateways will automatically revert to the software version in the backup, ensuring system stability. A ThingsPro tool simplifies the provisioning process by enabling bulk provisioning of IIoT gateways and performing remote software upgrades.
The AIG-300 series of IIoT gateways feature an Arm Cortex-A7 dual core 1GHz processor, one CAN port, four direct inputs, four direct outputs and an operating temperature range of -40 to +70 degrees C.
