ADLINK Announces Intelligent IoT Gateway Based on Intel® Quark™ SoC X1021 Processor
New gateway offers seamless interconnection and device and sensor management utility for faster IIoT deployment
ADLINK Technology, Inc., a leading global provider of cloud-based services, intelligent gateways, and embedded building blocks for edge devices that enable the Internet of Things (IoT), has announced their new compact, power-saving MXE-100i Series for cloud applications specifically focused on industrial use. The MXE-100i Series features Intel® Quark™ SoC X1021 processors and supports the Intel® IoT Gateway.
The MXE-100i gateway acquires and transmits sensor data to the cloud via highly integrated networking, wireless and industrial I/O. Complying with industrial grade EMI/EMS standards (EN 61000-6-4, 61000-6-2) and delivering superior grade construction, the MXE-100i Series meets a wide variety of industrial needs. The combination of Wind River® IDP with ADLINK’s SEMA (Smart Embedded Management Agent) solution maximizes manageability and security critical to Industrial IoT applications. The MXE-100i Series embodies seamless connectivity and data transmission between users and the cloud, while ensuring interoperability of edge devices, making it ideal for embedded applications such as industrial automation, machine automation, and M2M communications.
“We understand customers require an application-ready solution to tackle the complexity of IoT infrastructure. Leveraging ADLINK’s proven expertise in industrial automation, we’re happy to provide seamless connectivity between devices and the cloud, ensuring the interoperability of edge devices through an open architecture enabling rapid application and service, all to successfully equip new connected applications with minimum effort,” said Roy Wan, general manager of ADLINK’s Measurement and Automation Product Segment.
Measuring only 4.68 x 3.9 x 21.7 inches, the MXE-100i is an ultra-compact IoT gateway fully operable in environments from -20°C to 70°C. Aluminum housing and proven rugged construction assures total functionality under demanding conditions, featuring industrial grade EMI/EMS certification, and sustaining operating vibration up to 5 Grms and shock up to 100 G. A full suite of industrial I/O features, including two high-speed LAN, two COM, three USB 2.0 host and SDIO, dual mini PCIe slots and USIM socket for maximum communicability via protocols such as WiFi, BT and 3G for optimized connectivity.
EdgePro Utility Enables Fast Deployment and Easy Configuration
To simplify device-cloud connection and accelerate IoT application development, ADLINK further provides a proprietary IoT device & sensor management utility, ADLINK EdgePro. The device & sensor management application runs on Intel® IoT Gateway, enabling device and sensor management via plug-in 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 with a user-friendly Web-based dashboard allowing remote monitoring of status and actuator control. In addition, EdgePro enables simple configuration of reliable and secure connectivity with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Windows Azure Cloud, providing a complete IoT connection solution for accelerated IoT application development.
ADLINK currently offers an IoT Gateway Starter Kit combining the MXE-202i intelligent IoT gateway based on Intel® Atom™ E3826 processors, ADLINK’s EdgePro IoT management application, a light sensor and corresponding siren output, Modbus TCP module and accessories.
