Axiomtek - a world-renowned leader relentlessly devoted in the research, development and manufacture of series of innovative and reliable industrial computer products of high efficiency – is proud to announce the ICO500-518, a flexible and easy-to-use modular edge gateway for industrial IoT applications. This DIN-rail IIoT edge gateway featuring flexible I/O expansion, sufficient storage and network capability is well-suited for transportation, public utility, smart building, solar energy, as well as factory automation fields. By bundling Axiomtek’s intelligent AMS software solution for device monitoring and remote management, the ICO500-518 is able to implement environment signal monitoring, edge analytics and remote device management in the IIoT world. It has also passed the EN 50121-4 certified for railway applications. The rugged high computing edge gateway has scalable CPU options with the 7th gen Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 (codename: Kaby Lake-U) or Celeron® processors and supports one DDR4-2133 SO-DIMM slot for up to 16GB of system memory.
Selecting the right IIoT edge gateway will allow you to collect, connect, and analyze your field data in a quick, safe, and secure way. The ICO500-518 features basic benefits whether low latency or cost efficiency; moreover, offering much more other advantages for IIoT applications. It not only supports multiple OT communication protocols that can significantly reduce the effort required to collect data from different field devices, but also provide local intelligence to allow operators respond faster to events that happen at the remote site and minimizes latency between edge devices and the cloud server. Also, with TPM 2.0, this IIoT edge gateway provides tailored levels of security depending on the application needs.
Axiomtek’s ICO500-518 has two optional plug-in I/O module slots and four different types of I/O modules to meet different customization requirements. An integrator can choose from four available I/O modules including an 8-port GbE LAN module; 8-port isolated RS-232/422/485 module; 4-port isolated RS-232/422/485 with one isolated DIO (8-in/8-out) module; 8-port isolated CANbus 2.0A/B module to customize the ICO500-518 to fit its specific project requirements. Additionally, the ICO500-518 offers flexible communication options - two full-size PCI Express Mini Card slots and one external SIM card slot for 4G/3G, GPS, LoRaWAN, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections. Furthermore, it supports swappable 2.5-inch SATA drive and external CFastTM card to provide sufficient storage capability. For withstanding harsh operating conditions, this IP40-rated embedded box PC offers an extended operating temperature range of -40°C to 70°C, a wide range DC input of 12V to 48V with OVP, UVP, OCP, RPP power protection, and up to 3G vibration endurance.
“With its user-friendly modular design, Axiomtek’s ICO500-518 fulfills system integrators’ needs and meets changing demands for industrial IoT applications. This advanced IoT edge gateway is expandable with additional I/O modules. In terms of the predictive maintenance solutions, users can connect sensors to the ICO500-518 for machine status, environmental monitoring, and data collection. Moreover, the edge gateway adopts the high-performance Intel® Core™ platform, offering the abilities to process and analyze massive volumes of log data,” said Darren Wang, a product manager of Product PM Division at Axiomtek.”
Exclude the features mentioned above, the Intel® Kaby Lake-U-based ICO500-518 also comes with rich I/O connectivity including one RS-232/422/485 port, one isolated 4-in/4-out Digital I/O port, one HDMI port, one VGA port, two Gigabit LAN ports, four USB 3.0 ports, one DC power input with terminal block, and four antenna openings. Besides, the DIN-rail IIoT gateway runs well with Windows® 10 IoT and Linux operating systems.
