IIoT gateway starter kit


IIoT gateway starter kit

To serve the needs of system integrators and engineers developing applications for the Industrial Internet of Things, Moxa has launched the IIoT Gateway Starter Kit, which includes built-in support for Amazon Web Services (AWS). This data-acquisition-ready kit provides a reliable ready-to-use platform that simplifies development of IIoT solutions by providing all the essentials needed to get data from edge devices to cloud services, and with little to no programming required.

The first main component of the starter kit is ThingsPro Gateway, a ready-to-run data-acquisition software platform that simplifies the complex task of transferring edge data to the cloud. ThingsPro Gateway provides a Modbus framework to easily connect with Modbus RTU/TCP devices and SCADA systems. It also includes extensive network support for 4G connectivity, wireless failover, firewalls, and VPN to ensure that your data can be securely retrieved from remote field sites.

To get data into the cloud, it has built-in client support for services such as AWS IoT and Cirrus Link Sparkplug. Field data can be transfered to various AWS cloud services such as Amazon Kinesis, AWS Lambda, and Amazon S3. The starter kit also supports running AWS Greengrass to perform computing, messaging, data caching, and sync functions locally. Furthermore, with the built-in Cirrus Link Sparkplug SDK, the IIoT Gateway can be connected to the Inductive Automation Ignition Platform or another MQTT server.

The other main component is the UC-8112 Edge Computer – an industrial-grade ready-to-deploy communication-centric computing platform that packs a 1 GHz ARM processor, 512 MB RAM, two LAN ports, and two serial ports, all in a compact, palm-sized rugged box. It is available in a wide temperature model that can operate in harsh environments from to -40 to 75°C. It also has a wide range of wireless accessories available to add LTE or Wi-Fi connectivity if needed.

By putting together the UC-8112 Edge Computer hardware and ThingsPro Gateway software, the IIoT Gateway Starter Kit presents a flexible platform for remote monitoring, data acquisition, and data processing in a variety of IIoT applications, including solar energy, wind power, water and wastewater monitoring, and smart manufacturing.
