acceed: IIoT gateway and embedded controller combined
Two technologies combined in a compact device - that is what acceed offers with the new MXE-210 in its portfolio. The controller, designed for robust use in the temperature range from -40 to +85°C, can be used both as an IIoT gateway and as an embedded platform for local controllers. This makes the MXE-210 particularly interesting for demanding applications in the areas of transport, automation, manufacturing and Smart city solutions.
The increasing requirements for IIoT solutions requires a functional variety covering a broad range of operating conditions. At the same time, users do not wish to be forced to revert to different manufacturers in order to do justice to the requirements of the respective application. With its large number of interfaces and comprehensive support of data communication standards, the new compact controller series MXE-210 is immediately ready for use for a variety of solutions in the tension field of IIoT and embedded controlling.
Frictionless and intelligent data exchange is becoming increasingly decisive for successful systems due to the rapid developments in the areas of Industry 4.0 and Smart homes. The industry standards supported by the MXE-210 include Modbus, EtherCAT, DDS, MQTT and CANOpen by Vortex Edge Connect, as well as Wi-Fi, BT, LoRa (Long Range Wide Area Network), 3G and 4G LTE for the various wireless communication technologies. LoRa is a wireless network protocol geared to top energy efficiency and energy-savings developed specifically for communication in the Internet of Things.
The MXE-210 stands for a series of models with different basic equipment with regard to CPU, memory and optional features. The experts from Acceed are available to support you in the selection and configuration of the models. This service of ready assembly is one of the points of focus in Acceed’s professional range, guaranteeing a rollout of several hundred systems per week.
All models have a fanless and at the same time exceptionally compact casing with the dimensions 140 x 58 x 110 mm, in accordance with industry requirements. Its robust construction allows use in harsh environments and includes vibration resistance up to 5 Grms, impact resistance up to 100 G, and the extreme operating temperature range from -40 up to +85 °C. The operating systems Windows 10 IoT Enterprise 64Bit and Ubuntu Linux 16.04 LTS 64 bit are supported.
Respectively two LAN 10/100MbE interfaces, COM ports (RS-232, RS-232/422/485), USB 2.0 hosts and Mini-PCIe slots are available for further classical data exchange. A USIM socket is available for the installation of the wireless modules. Moreover, all models in the series offer certified EMI/EMS stability for extreme operating conditions in accordance with EN 61000-6-4/2. Due to their conformity with EN 50155, the controllers are approved for use in all types of rail vehicles.
