IoT DevCon 2016: Adlink to display industrial IoT offerings with rugged small form factor design

Adlink Technology will showcase its latest Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platforms at next week’s IoT DevCon 2016 in Santa Clara, California. The company also invites attendees to a panel discussion on ‘Choosing the Right Small Form Factor for your Ruggedized IoT Application’ next Wednesday, May 25 at 4:15 pm and a presentation from PrismTech on ‘The Cloudy, Foggy and Misty Internet of Things’ the following day at 3 pm.

Demonstrations will include a real-time M2M automation solution featuring the MXE-202i gateway, based on Intel IoT Gateway Technology, and Vortex Data Distribution Services (DDS). Motion tracking triggers a motion sensor connected to the MXE-202i, which ingests the data that is then distributed to the robotic devices via Vortex DDS in order to activate the arms.

The MXE-200i Series provides an embedded system supporting wide application development and easy service deployment in industrial automation, while the Vortex intelligent data sharing platform enables easy distribution of data between devices and from device to cloud.

The Adlink Intelligent IoT Gateway Starter Kit will also be on hand. It serves as a complete IIoT connection solution for reduced development time and quick deployment for every application environment.

The starter kit contains the MXE-202i intelligent IoT gateway, EdgePro IoT device and sensor management application, light sensor, siren output, Modbus TCP module and accessories. IoT Gateway Starter Kit and EdgePro application benefits also include easy configuration with a user-friendly administrator interface and dashboards.

Matthias Huber, Adlink’s vice president of global marketing, will participate in the rugged small form factor design panel discussion on the first day of the event, while PrismTech’s Toby McClean, chief solutions architect, will close out the conference with a presentation on how fog and mist computing architectures have emerged as forms of cloud computing close to the edge of the network, and to the things of the IoT in order to alleviate connectivity, bandwidth and latency challenges.

Adlink introduced last week its thin mini-ITX embedded board AmITX-BW-I for flexible embedded application development. The AmITX-BW-I offers enhanced display features with Intel Gen 8 LP high-definition graphics in a low profile and scalable design.

With low-latency, high-resolution video imaging, the AmITX-BW-I features the Intel Atom x5-E8000 processor and is designed for graphics-intense applications such as infotainment, medical imaging,

and industrial automation. Intel Gen 8 LP HD Graphics supports three independent 4K displays and provides full hardware acceleration for encoding/decoding of HEVC H.265, H.264/263, SVC, AVS, VP8/9, and MPEG4. Video and 3D rendering is enhanced by DirectX 11.1, OpenGL 4.2, ES 3.0, and OpenCL 1.2.
