Taipei, Taiwan, July 2019 –
Advantech, a leading
provider of automation technology, is pleased to announce the release of its UNO-420
data gateway. Powered by an Intel® Atom™ E3815 processor and equipped with three
configurable COM, two LAN (one PoE), eight programmable GPIO, one HDMI, and one
USB 3.0, UNO-420 provides the ideal solution for connecting legacy equipment to
new mesh networks. Aimed at harsh industrial environments as well as in-cabinet
installations with limited space, the UNO-420 terminal features a compact form
factor (125 x 125 x 50 mm/4.92 x 4.92 x 1.97 in) and supports a wide operating
temperature range (-20 ~ 60 °C/-4 ~ 140 °F). To enable remote management of infrastructure,
UNO-420 supports diverse Wi-Fi, 3G, 4G/LTE, and NB-IoT wireless modules that facilitate
long-distance data transmissions, over-the-air (OTA) updates, and real-time
communication. Considering the importance of cyber security amid the rise of
the IoT, the UNO-420 terminal is also embedded with a
Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 that provides security for cloud-based
data operations. Furthermore, unlike standard data gateways, UNO-420 adopts a PoE-In
design that allows the terminal to be powered via a LAN port, which reduces wiring
and minimizes overall maintenance costs.
Designed to serve as a sensing data collector, UNO-420
is a compact data gateway that can be easily integrated with diverse
equipment and machinery. The provision of comprehensive I/O interfaces,
including three configurable COM, two LAN (one PoE), eight programmable
GPIO, one HDMI, and one USB 3.0, allow raw data to be collected and
transmitted directly to the cloud for subsequent visualization and
analysis. When combined with optional Wi-Fi, 3G, 4G/LTE, and NB-IoT
wireless modules that enable remote management, UNO-420 provides a
reliable, cost-efficient, and scalable terminal for infrastructure
To ensure easy installation in awkward or remote locations that may be difficult to reach with a power cable, UNO-420 is designed with PoE support. This means a single Ethernet cable can be used for data transmissions and power delivery. Ethernet cables are widely employed in existing infrastructures and considerably less expensive than fiber optic cables. Accordingly, Advantech’s UNO-420 gateway with PoE support provides customers with an edge-to-cloud data sensing solution that requires minimal wiring and is cost-effective to install.
The UNO-420 data gateway is also equipped with
Advantech’s WISE-PaaS/EdgeLink protocol-conversion software, which
supports more than 200 communication protocols (e.g., Modbus, DNP3,
OPC-UA, MQTT, and IEC-60870-5-104) to enable data collection from legacy
devices. In addition to facilitating data integration,
WISE-PaaS/EdgeLink allows user-defined data acquisition periods for each
input interface, reducing the volume of data transmitted and stored on
the cloud. This combined with the software’s plug-and-play functionality
dramatically reduces programming and streamlines application
development and deployment.
Advantech’s UNO-420 PoE sensing data gateway is
available for order now. For more information regarding UNO-420 or other
