IIoT gateways are compact for RISC-based communication

RISC-based industrial edge gateways have wireless and Ethernet communication, multiple protocol support and WebAccess integration specifically designed for distributed solar power generation, electricity and energy management applications.

There are seven models available from Advantech which provide machine-to-intelligence for asset management, monitoring equipment efficiency and status and solar, wind and geothermal management for renewable energy as well as monitoring power generation efficiency and distributed energy resource management.

The gateways help industrial IoT field, governments, equipment manufacturers, factory owners and smart city investors use powerful data analytics to raise service levels and reduce operational costs, said Advantech. The industrial communication gateways are designed to simplify data acquisition and transmission and improve service quality by facilitating infrastructure connectivity, equipment monitoring, and energy consumption analysis. This allows manufacturers and organisations to obtain insights on usage behaviours and derive intelligence through the analysis of big data.

The gateways are based on an industrial grade IC with a long MTBF (mean time between failure). The IEC standard fulfills all mission critical applications, confirmed Advantech. The gateways have a wide operating temperature range of -40 to +70 degrees C.

The gateways have battery powered RTC, independent WDT and TPM support.

The gateways operate on Linux and applications can be developed with C. Python or third party libraries.

The EdgeLink bundle has protocol support for data from field devices and no coding support is needed for Azure/AWS/Cumulocity/Sparkplug MQTT, said Advantech with OPCUA / ODBC / JDBC IT software and SQL database for data support.

The ECU-1000 series intelligent IIoT communication gateways are available for order now. 

Founded in 1983, Advantech provides system integration, hardware, software, customer-centric design services, embedded systems, automation products and global logistics support. It co-operates closely with partners in a range of applications in various industries. The company’s mission is to enable an intelligent planet by developing automated and embedded computing products and solutions that facilitate smarter working and living.
