AAEON: new IoT gateway trio for indoor and outdoor use
AAEON has launched the AIOT-QA, AIOT-QG, and AIOT-QM IoT gateways running on the Intel Quark X1000 Series SoCs. AAEON’s trio of IoT-specific gateways are created and built to enable an IoT lifestyle both indoors and outdoors. Along with the low-power consuming chips, the devices are equipped with the Wind River Intelligent Platform, Linux support, McAfee Embedded Control security technology, and Bluetooth/ WiFi/ 3G connectivity to ensure the most flexible and secure option for implementing IoT.
The AIOT-QA and AIOT-QG are built similarly for indoor use, with the former attuned for industrial automation with a DIN-rail mountable design, while the latter towards general purpose applications. Both devices carry I/Os such as ADC and DI/Os that are beneficial for allowing the system to understand parameters such as temperatures, humidity, luminance, water level, etc. for autonomous monitoring and control.
The AIOT-QM is the most “outgoing” member of the three with its IP67 design and a wide operating temperature range of -20 ~ 70°C, making it conducive for outdoor use . All of its onboard I/Os, such as LAN, USB, COM, ADC, and DI/O are specially designed with M12 connectors to discourage intrusion of solid and liquid and reinforce protection against them. As such, mating connectors are required to realize the device’s true potential.
