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 unveiling the IFB122, an extremely compact RISC-based DIN-rail industrial IoT gateway powered by the low-power Freescale i.MX 6UL-2 processor in the ARM® Cortex™-A7 micro architecture. Designed to meet the challenges in critical environments, it supports extended operating temperature ranging from -40°C to 70°C, flexible wide voltage range 9V – 48V DC power input, and can withstand vibration up to 5G. One PCI Express Mini Card slot, one SIM card slot, and two internal antennas are available for Wi-Fi and 3G/4G connections. With the abilities to transmit data and manage various devices, the IP40-rated ready-to-run IFB122 is definitely a cost-effective solution for remote control/monitoring management applications such as unmanned control room, industrial machine, automatic parking lot, traffic cabinet, etc.
“Based on the RISC architecture, the budget-friendly industrial gateway has lower heat output and lower power consumption, making it suitable for applications which demand a balance between power and performance,” said Jessie Wu, product manager of Software and Solution Division at Axiomtek. “The built-in serial port, LAN port and USB port provide faster and more efficient data computation, communication and acquisition. Besides, digital input/output interfaces are available to support a wide variety of test and measurement applications. The wall mount bracket included with the IFB122 enables flexible installation.”
Utilizing the power-efficient ARM® Cortex™-A7 processor, the robust DIN-rail fanless gateway comes with one 256MB DDR3 onboard memory and one 4GB eMMC flash memory for storage. While measuring only 31 x 100 x 125 mm in size, it has rich I/O connections including two RS-232/422/485 ports, two 10/100 Mbps LAN ports, one USB 2.0 port, and one digital I/O (2-IN/1-OUT). LED indicators on the front panel show the status of the device. The industrial grade DIN-rail embedded platform comes with Yocto embedded Linux to provide an open standard operating system for software program development.
