IoT Gate iMX7 Device

ARM IoT Gateway Device

The ARM-PC IoT gateway device is specially designed for rugged, industrial environments as a cost-effective IoT Gateway and Industrial Controller, delivering an unprecedented array of wireless and wired interfaces.

It features a fanless design in a miniature (10.8 x 8.3 x 2.4 cm) ruggedized aluminum housing.

The IoT-GATE device can reliably be operated 24/7 making it ideal to be used for industrial control and monitoring. It features extensive wireless and wired connectivity and can operate in a wide temperature range of -40 °C to 85 °C. When used with a fit-uptime UPS (additional), the ARM-PC can last up to 5 hours in event of a power loss.

In addition to wide range DC input of 8V to 24V, it supports PoE powered mode allowing to eliminate the need for PSU and simplify cabling.
