Eurotech expands IoT gateway portfolio with LTE connectivity

October 05, 2017 //By Julien Happich
ReliaGATE 10-12 from Eurotech is a compact IoT gateway featuring LTE connectivity for industrial and lightly rugged applications – it is based on the TI AM3352 Cortex-A8 (Sitara) processor running at 1-GHz, with 1GB of RAM, 4GB of eMMC and a user-accessible microSD slot.

The gateway provides a wide range of connectivity capabilities, including LTE Cat 1 (available for Europe and North America), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Low Energy, and 2 Fast Ethernet ports; other interfaces are two protected RS-232/485 serial ports, 2 CAN bus, 2 noise and surge protected USB ports, and 4 isolated digital I/O.

ReliaGATE 10-12 is a low power (2 W typical) gateway with a wide range power supply (9- to 36-VDC) and a wide operating temperature range (-20 to +70°C) making it particularly suitable for demanding applications. It comes with the genuine Oracle Java SE Embedded 8 Virtual Machine and the Everyware Software Framework (ESF), a commercial, enterprise-ready edition of Eclipse Kura, the open source Java/OSGi edge computing platform and middleware for IoT gateways. Distributed and supported by Eurotech, ESF features ready-to-use field protocol support (including Modbus, OPC-UA, S7), MQTT connectivity to all leading IoT cloud vendors, web-based visual data flow programming, advanced configuration and security, diagnostics, provisioning, and full remote access and management.

The gateway's capability can be extended with two expansion boards, ReliaIO, an I/O expansion module and ReliaLORA, a LoRa gateway module. The ReliaIO, delivers additional Digital I/O ports (4x In, 4x Out, all isolated) and Analog Input ports (4x at 12 bit). The LoRa expansion module planned for Q1 2018 will add the capabilities of a LoRa Gateway to the ReliaGATE family.
