The FES500-518 featuring flexible I/O expansion, sufficient storage and network capability is well-suited for transportation, public utility, smart building, solar energy, as well as factory automation fields. By bundling Axiomtek’s intelligent AMS software solution for device monitoring and remote management, the FES500-518 is able to implement environment signal monitoring, edge analytics and remote device management in the IIoT world. It has also passed the EN 50121-4 certified for railway applications. The rugged high computing edge gateway has scalable CPU options with the 7th gen Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 (codename: Kaby Lake-U) or Celeron® processors and supports one DDR4-2133 SO-DIMM slot for up to 16GB of system memory. The FES500-518 features basic benefits whether low latency or cost efficiency; moreover, offering much more other advantages for IIoT applications. It not only supports multiple OT communication protocols that can significantly reduce the effort required to collect data from different field devices, but also provide local intelligence to allow operators respond faster to events that happen at the remote site and minimizes latency between edge devices and the cloud server. Also, with TPM 2.0, this IIoT edge gateway provides tailored levels of security depending on the application needs. Axiomtek’s FES500-518 has two optional plug-in I/O module slots and four different types of I/O modules to meet different customization requirements. An integrator can choose from four available I/O modules including an 8-port GbE LAN module; 8-port isolated RS-232/422/485 module; 4-port isolated RS-232/422/485 with one isolated DIO (8-in/8-out) module; 8-port isolated CANbus 2.0A/B module to customize the FES500-518to fit its specific project requirements. Additionally, the FES500-518 offers flexible communication options – two full-size PCI Express Mini Card slots and one external SIM card slot for 4G/3G, GPS, LoRaWAN, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections. Furthermore, it supports swappable 2.5-inch SATA drive and external CFastTM card to provide sufficient storage capability. For withstanding harsh operating conditions, this IP40-rated embedded box PC offers an extended operating temperature range of -40°C to 70°C, a wide range DC input of 12V to 48V with OVP, UVP, OCP, RPP power protection, and up to 3G vibration endurance.
