Overview

The IA260 embedded computers come with 4 RS-232/422/485 serial ports, dual Ethernet ports, 8 digital input channels, 8 digital output channels, a VGA output, 2 USB hosts, and a CompactFlash socket. The computers are housed in a compact, IP40 protected, industrial-strength aluminum case.
The IA260 computers use the Cirrus Logic EP9315 ARM9, 32-bit, 200 MHz RISC CPU. This powerful computing engine supports several useful communication functions, but will not generate too much heat. The built-in 32 MB NOR Flash ROM and 128 MB SDRAM give you enough memory to run your application software directly on the IA260.
The patented “H-Type” heat dissipation design can directly transmit heat from inside the housing to the outside, which makes the IA260 an ideal computing unit for applications that involve extremely high temperatures. With its built-in VGA output interface, the IA260 computers are suitable for use with SCADA systems in industrial applications, such as factory automation, production line process monitoring, and mining automation, that require VGA and HMI features.
The IA260 computers support RS-232/422/485, digital I/O, and have dual LAN ports, making them ideal for communication platforms in industrial applications that require network redundancy. In addition to the standard model, a wide-temperature (-40 to 75°C) model is available for use in harsh industrial-automation environments.

Five Reasons Why Your IoT Application Needs Fog Computing

 

Fog Computing White PaperIndustry experts have warned that the cloud-computing models deployed in many IoT systems today are ill equipped to deal with the volume of data generated by the billions of IoT devices that are slated to go online in the next couple of years. To add to this, these devices generate data in a multitude of formats using a variety of protocols, making their acquisition and realtime processing difficult. In this white paper, we look at the fog computing model and why it is required in today’s IoT application...more
