-- The IGMG-P83244GC+-
D4G from Acceed
combines high-performance hardware with software components for intelligent IoT applications. A reliable Dual Core ARMv7 Cortex-A9 CPU with up to 1.3 GHz works under the cover. A gigabit Ethernet switch with eight interfaces, four of which are pure 10/100/1000 base T(X) ports and the remaining four gigabit SFP-combo ports, is integrated for the optional connection of fibre optic cables. The redundant power supply is designed for input voltage from 12 to 48 V DC. Typical electricity consumption is 18 W. Numerous multicoloured LEDs on the front side show important status information for the power supply, PoE, network communication, radio signal strength and disturbances at a glance.
All interfaces support the Modbus TCP and RTU protocols for communication with serial end devices such as PLCs (programmable logical controllers)
, machines and sensors in factory or building automation. With support for dual SIM cards for redundancy or a load compensation function, top reliability for mobile phone connection is provided. Two aerial connections are located on the front side. The IGMG-P83244GC+-
D4G passed the AT&T 4G LTE connectivity tests successfully. With its 64 GB capacity (optional up to 256 GB), the internal mSATA SSD memory provides good opportunities for local processing, storage and protocolling for comprehensive IoT data.
With Ignition on Board and Ignition Edge on Board, the IGMG-P83244GC+-
D4G is ready for the use of the web-based Ignition platform. Ignition is an industrial application platform from Inductive Automation with numerous tools for creating solutions in the areas of SCADA, HMI (Human Machine Interface) and IIoT. Ignition is used in various automation areas worldwide. Ignition's advantage vis-à-vis locally installed software is that this platform is open, standard-based, scalable, can be extended and is future-proof. Data communication is possible with various systems, enabling the merging of data and its provision to everybody who needs it.
Depending on the use requirements, Ignition and Ignition Edge can simply be activated via the gateway interface. The PostgreSQL database which is already integrated for data recording and storage is already connected to the Integration software by default.
The protocols supported include MQTT, CoAP and Modbus TCP/RTU. Event warnings can be output by E-mail, SNMP trap, Syslog or relay output. The development tool Node RED for dashboard prototyping is also on-board. The manufacturer ORing, a specialist for industrial network solutions, provides the software Open Gateway which as a browser-based editor simplifies the easy and user-friendly configuration of the controller as an intermediary between Modbus field devices and MQTT/CoAP/LWM2M servers.
