Axiomtek Introduces DIN-Rail IIoT Edge Gateway With Flexible Modular Design And EN 50121-4 Certification – The ICO500-518

The DIN-Rail, railway-certified ICO500-518 is highly modular with two plug-in I/O module slots for transportation, public utility/smart energy, smart building and factory automation applications.

Axiomtek, a leading design and manufacturing company of innovative, high performance and reliable PC-based industrial computer products, is proud to announce the ICO500-518, a modular industrial IoT edge gateway. It is EN 50121-4-certified for railway applications and powered by 7th generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 or Celeron processors. It supports Axiomtek’s intelligent AMS software solution for device monitoring and remote management. The ICO500-518 is highly expandable and durable with ample storage, delivering true customer value for transportation, public utility/smart energy, smart building and factory automation applications.

The ICO500-518 is customizable with two full-size PCIe Mini Card slots, one external SIM card slot, as well as two plug-in I/O module slots. Its rich I/O interfaces include two Gigabit LAN ports, one RS-232/422/485 port, one isolated 4-in/4-out Digital I/O port, four USB 3.0 ports, one HDMI port, one VGA port, one DC power input with terminal block and four antenna openings. The ICO500-518 not only supports multiple OT communication protocols that allow data to be collected from different field devices, but also provides local intelligence to allow operators to respond faster to events that happen at the remote site and minimizes latency between edge devices and the cloud server. This IIoT edge gateway supports Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 for an added level of security.

The IP40-rated ICO500-518 can withstand harsh operating environments with an operating temperature range of -40°C to +70°C and power input of 12V to 48V DC. It offers one DDR4-2133 SO-DIMM slot for up to 16GB of system memory. This rugged IIoT gateway runs on Windows 10 IoT and Linux operating systems.

“The modular ICO500-518 is versatile and highly customizable to meet the needs of multiple applications. For predictive maintenance, users can connect sensors to the ICO500-518 for machine status, environmental monitoring and data collection. With its high processing power, it has the ability to process and analyze massive volumes of data,” said Darren Wang, a product manager of the Embedded Computer Division at Axiomtek.
