To prepare the transition to “Industry 4.0” on the field level, SYS TEC electronic has developed a ready to use gateway solution for the Internet of Things. The basis for our IoT-Gateway is the ECUcore-1021 along with the dedicated Application Carrier Board in an IP20 aluminum housing. The ECUcore-1021, based on Freescale Layerscape LS1021A, is an embedded controller with a high density of available communication and I/O interfaces.
The System on Module offers outstanding performance at lower power dissipation and is particular designed for the secure communication in modern industrial applications. The Carrier Board is fitted with a broad number of commonly used high-speed interfaces like Gigabit Ethernet, USB3.0, SATA3.0, PCI-Express, LVDS, DVI and SD-Card. In addition it supports WLAN interface cards connected via MiniPCIe socked. This vast variety of on-board peripherals is an ideal base for implementation of own IoT-Gateway applications. The components of the device were selected on the basis of their long-term availability and reliable operation in industrial environments with a temperature range of -40°C to 85°C.
