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 Agent200-FL-DC, an extremely compact RISC-based DIN-rail industrial IoT gateway. The ultra-low power embedded box PC is powered by the NXP i.MX 6UL processor with the ARM® Cortex™-A7 microarchitecture. Designed to meet the challenges of harsh operating environments, it supports extended operating temperature range of -40°C to 70°C, a flexible wide voltage range of 9V to 48V DC power input, and can withstand high vibration environments up to 2G. With the ability to transmit data and manage various devices, the versatile gateway is optimized for remote control and monitoring management applications such as unmanned control rooms, industrial machines, automatic parking lots, traffic monitoring systems, etc.
The Agent200-FL-DC offers operational reliability, rugged design, rich features and easy maintenance. Two PCI Express Mini Card slots, one SIM card slot and two internal antennas are available for Wi-Fi, 3G/4G and GPS connections.
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 Tina Tu, product manager of Network Computing Platform Division at Axiomtek. “The built-in serial port, LAN port and USB port provide fast and efficient data computation, communication and acquisition. Besides, its digital input/output interfaces are available for a wide variety of test and measurement applications. The Agent200-FL-DC can be integrated anywhere through the DIN-rail mounting kit and wall mount bracket.
The IP20-rated fanless gateway comes with a 256MB onboard DDR3L memory and one onboard 4GB eMMC for storage. The Agent200-FL-DC measuring only 31 x 100 x 125 mm has rich I/O interfaces including one switchable RS-232/422/485 port, one 10/100 Mbps LAN port, one USB 2.0 port, one digital I/O (4-in/4-out), and one CANBus port. The LED indicators on the front panel show the status of the device. The industrial-grade DIN-rail embedded platform is compatible with Yocto embedded Linux to provide an open standard operating system for software program development.
