Janz Tec: emIOT gateway series offers various wireless interfaces

Janz Tec is expanding its portfolio of embedded PCs and is launching the IoT Gateway series emIOT, which complements the well-known emPC product line with systems specifically designed for networking machines and processes – as the basis for IIoT applications. All IoT gateways are also available with optional, tailor-made industrial security features from Janz Tec’s Security Ecosystem toolkit. The first products of the new IoT gateway series are emIOT-A/iMX6 and emIOT-X, which will be followed soon by small format systems, starting with the emIOT Edge.

The emIOT series is the result of the strong demand for wireless connectivity of embedded systems in Industry 4.0 environments – for example, in the areas of e-mobility and smart metering. In the field of digitalisation, it isn’t just entire plants that are being networked, but devices and systems that are used to collect data and perform control functions are also successively being integrated into internal corporate networks and connected to the Internet in a decentralised manner. Up to now, this has often been a laborious task of connecting systems with cables or using additional external peripherals. As edge gateways, the new emIOT systems offer various wireless interfaces as an alternative – including standard mobile communication technologies such as GPRS, UMTS and LTE. LPWAN technologies, such as LTE NB-IoT for Industrial IoT solutions, are also possible, as well as WiFi connections for internal network applications.

The edge gateways are characterised by their ability to pool the tasks of multiple devices. emIOT systems are capable of communicating via various fieldbuses and exchanging data in a bidirectional manner. Furthermore, additional interfaces allow data logging via external sensors for plant monitoring. The scalable design of the hardware platform of the emIOT series is based on Janz Tec’s highly successful embedded PC series. This makes the series highly adaptable to special requirements in terms of performance, ambient conditions and the required quantity scales.
