ADLINK: IIoT-ready rugged, compact IoT gateway/controller
ADLINK Technology introduces a robust and reliable IIoT-ready combination embedded controller and IoT gateway. ADLINK’s MXE-210 offers a small footprint and is fully operable in harsh environments from -40 to 85°C, making it an ideal choice for industrial automation, transportation, agriculture/aquaculture, and smart city applications.
Functioning as both a gateway and embedded controller, the MXE-210 bridges the gap between Operations Technology (OT) and Information Technology (IT) data interchanges, with support for third party manufacturers via its wide range of industry standard compliances; support is included for Modbus, EtherCAT, DDS, MQTT, and CANOpen by Vortex Edge Connect, as well as Wi-Fi, BT, LoRa, 3G, and 4G LTE for data communication and wireless connectivity. As a controller, the MXE-210 leverages the same protocols to directly communicate with and manage any standard industrial device.
The MXE-210 gateway’s single embedded SIM automatically switches between regional networks, enabling a more secure and robust alternative to multiple SIM cards currently to deliver data as rolling stock moves between regions. The pre-installed e-SIM also eliminates time spent swapping out installed SIM cards. The MXE-210 Series further supports a wide range of comprehensive security measures, providing protection from the inside out with the benefits of TPM 2.0, Intel Boot Guard, and
In addition, the MXE-210 comes equipped with an Intel Atom x7-E3950/x5-E3930 processor (formally codenamed Apollo Lake-I), one DisplayPort, two USB 2.0, two USB 3.0, two GbE ports, two COM ports(RS232/422/485), two mPCIe slots, one USIM slot, one mSATA, one SATA-III, one Micro SD slot, and support for DIN-rails and wall mounting. Optional extras include audio mic-in, line-out support, eight isolated DI with interrupt and eight isolated DO, and two additional COM ports (RS232/422/485).
