Embedded IoT gateway with CAN

Published 2018-03-02

Janz Tec expands its portfolio of embedded PCs and launches the IoT gateway series emIOT. It complements the emPC product line with systems specifically designed for networking machines and processes.

All IoT gateways are also available with optional, tailor-made industrial security features from Janz Tec’s Security Ecosystem toolkit. The first products of the IoT gateway series are emIOT-A/iMX6 and emIOT-X, which will be followed soon by small format systems, starting with the emIOT Edge.

The emIOT-A/iMX6 comes with two 9-pin D-SUB connectors for CAN or serial ports. Up to four CAN interfaces can be connected. The gateway is based on NXP’s i.MX6 Quadcore CPU.

The systems also offer various wireless interfaces – including standard mobile communication technologies such as GPRS, UMTS and LTE. LPWAN technologies, such as LTE NB-IoT for Industrial IoT solutions, are also possible, as well as WiFi connections for internal network applications.

The gateways are capable of communicating via various fieldbuses (for example CAN) and exchanging data in a bidirectional manner. Furthermore, additional interfaces allow data logging via external sensors for plant monitoring. The scalable design of the hardware platform of the emIOT series is based on Janz Tec’s embedded PC series. This makes the series adaptable to special requirements in terms of performance, ambient conditions, and the required quantity scales.

The software of the product includes a CANopen protocol stack and tools. Janz Tec exhibited at the Embedded World 2018 in Nuremberg, Germany in hall 2 booth 411.
