Advantech Launches Modular Data Collection Gateway for Edge IoT Applications

Advantech, a leading provider of automation technology, is pleased to announce the release of its WISE-710 data gateway. Powered by an NXP® i.MX 6 DualLite processor and equipped with 2 x GbE, 3 x COM, 4 x digital inputs/outputs, 1 x micro USB, and 1 x micro SD, WISE-710 provides the ideal solution for connecting legacy equipment to new mesh networks. Aimed at harsh industrial environments as well as in-cabinet applications with limited space, the WISE-710 terminal features a compact form factor (100 x 70 x 36 mm/3.93 x 2.75 x 1.41 in) and wide operating temperature range (-20 ~ 55 °C/-4 ~ 131 °F). To enable remote management, WISE-710 supports a wide range of 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 WISE-710 terminal is also embedded with a Microchip ATECC508A security chip that provides ultra-secure hardware-based protection and security for cloud service data operations. Finally, unlike standard data gateways, WISE-710 implements a modular design that allows the terminal to be integrated with various I/O expansion modules (8 x analog inputs + 4 x digital inputs and 4 x RTD inputs + 4 x thermocouple channels) to satisfy diverse application requirements.

Powerful IoT Data Collector for Bridging OT and IT

Designed to serve as an in-cabinet machine data collector, WISE-710 is a compact data gateway that can be easily integrated with diverse equipment and machinery. The provision of comprehensive I/O interfaces, including 2 x GbE, 3 x COM, 4 x DI/O, 1 x micro USB, and 1 x micro SD, allow raw data to be collected and transferred 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, WISE-710 provides a reliable, cost-efficient, and scalable terminal for diverse gateway applications.
Best-in-Class Cyber Security and Data Protection
WISE-710 is equipped with a built-in Atmel® ATECC508A crypto security chip that ensures compliance with AWS security regulations. The embedded key encryption and authentication technology provides best-in-class, hardware-based cyber security and data protection for diverse IoT applications. On the IT level, the chip prevents unauthorized firmware updates and proliferation on the cloud; while on the OT level, the chip offers comprehensive security mechanisms, such as confidentiality, data integrity, anti-tampering, and encryption/decryption authentication functions.
WISE-PaaS/Edgelink Software Ensures Easy Programming
The WISE-710 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 supports user-defined data acquisition periods for each input interface, thereby 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 ensures easy application development and deployment.
