Farnell, the Development Distributor, is now shipping the Avnet SmartEdge Industrial IoT Gateway; the low-cost industrial gateway powered by Raspberry Pi. Since the launch of the product at Embedded World Germany in February 2019, there has been significant demand for the gateway for use in a range of applications, including: building management, vehicle monitoring, industrial automation and predictive maintenance.
The Avnet SmartEdge Industrial IoT Gateway, coupled with seamless, secure connectivity enabled by Avnet’s IoTConnect platform delivers a powerful set of features to gather, analyse and provide actionable, real-time data visualisation — all at a best-in-class price. Avnet’s IoTConnect platform runs on Microsoft Azure, a comprehensive set of edge-to-cloud services that are enterprise-ready to build, deploy, and manage IoT connected assets efficiently.
The gateway provides versatile connectivity with data intelligence for a wide range of industrial 4.0 applications – including additional ports to handle industrial protocols, higher power input range, a trusted computing module for comprehensive end-to-end hardware data security, and a robust wall or DIN rail mountable metal enclosure. These features come alongside a level of simplicity, capability and accessibility never before achieved in this environment. Developers familiar with prototyping on a Raspberry Pi device will find it a straightforward task to bring their designs to an industrial environment without having to switch platforms.
