AMARO, ITALY:  Being focused on performance enhancement, Eurotech a leading provider of embedded systems, Machine-to-Machine (M2M) platforms and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions has stirred up the market of IoT gateways by introducing ReliaGATE 10-05. The compact and efficient gateway is meant for industrial applications that comply with global certification requirements.

Based on the NXP i.MX285 CPU, the device features 512MB of RAM, 4GB of eMMC and a user-accessible microSD slot. Also ReliaGATE 10-05, is a low power Gateway that offers reliable operation in industrial applications where it supports a 9 to 36V power supply with transient/surge/noise/reverse polarity protection, two protected serial ports (RS-232 and RS-485), and one noise and surge protected USB port.

One unique feature of ReliaGATE 10-05 is the internal battery that provides up to 30 minutes of uptime and allows for a safe system shutdown in case of a blackout. Furthermore, the gateway features wired and wireless connectivity capabilities by integrating a cellular modem (2G or global 3G), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Low Energy, and one Fast Ethernet port. Installing the gateway is very easy since it is very compact, with a total volume of just 112x68x37mm (LxWxH) and just 180g.  Mounting options include a DIN bar adapter.

ReliaGATE 10-05 comes with Yocto Linux 1.6 and includes a genuine Oracle Java SE Embedded 8 Virtual Machine; that provides Everyware Software Framework (ESF), a commercial, enterprise-ready edition of Eclipse Kura, the open source Java/OSGi middleware for IoT Gateways. Distributed and supported by Eurotech, ESF adds advanced security, diagnostics, provisioning, remote access and management thanks to its full integration with Everyware Cloud (EC), Eurotech’s IoT integration platform (available separately).

ReliaGATE 10-05 is the latest addition to a family of software-defined IoT Gateways, designed to provide well balanced products in terms of performance, features and price, for many typical IoT applications. “This new IoT Gateway addresses applications that were difficult to support with existing industrial designs from a price/footprint/feature perspective,” said Giuseppe Surace, Eurotech CPO. He further adds, “The ReliaGATE 10-05 is combination of a hardware platform and Eurotech’s IoT middleware for embedded Java application development. It is available in a range of configurations that are optimized to fit typical IoT use cases.”
