New Matrix-704 Industrial IoT Gateway Protects Industrial Equipment to withstand harmful and volatile electrical environments
Artila Electronics, which specializes in the development and manufacture of Linux-ready Arm embedded industrial computers, today introduced a new IoT Gateway Matrix-704 featuring with Isolated / Surge-protected Serial ports that secure the data transmission to increase system reliability in a wide range of demanding industrial applications.
Developers of industrial applications expect reinforced isolation products to provide fail-safe protection from secondary lightning strikes, especially in applications where equipment is installed outdoors and where exposed cables or wires are vulnerable to lightning. With isolated and surge-protected RS-485 serial port, Matrix-704 Industrial IoT Gateway equips extreme temperatures and wide power supply tolerances, electromagnetic disturbance protection, these specifications help developers enhance the efficiency, effectiveness and safety of their system designs.
With one miniPCIe slot, Matrix-704 can deploy the connectivity technology / RF modules easily, such as LTE/4G, 3G, Wifi, BLE, Lora, thus networks can be easily deployed and extended. The wireless Matrix-704 adapts innovative compact platform —reliable, rugged ARM processor coupled with the open Linux operating system provides the backbone for innovative smart IoT solutions, that makes Artila’s IoT Gateway suitable for many industrial, telecom and automotive applications. Long lifetimes are particularly important to meet typical product lifetime for industrial uses.
Patented modules provide enhanced security for Internet of Things applications
Global Telecom, the only U.S. manufacturer of modules for Internet of Things (IoT) devices, has received its second patent for wireless modules from the United States Patent and Trade Office. U.S. Patent number 10,582,018 covers driverless, host-less wireless modules that can serve as the foundational technology for every sensor and device in the IoT.
In 2017, Global Telecom received its first patent (9,961,168) for similar technological advances in the field of wireless modules for smart devices. The driverless and host-less module is supported by select blockchain technology to add layers of security and easy usability to an inherently susceptible access point in the Internet of Things. The module is a hacker’s favored target because it enables free access to the network.
“The public dialogue on cyber security has completely overlooked the module in favor of popularized terms like the handset and chip, which is dangerous because there’s zero industrywide agreement or standardized diagnostic programs for detecting if or where a foreign state or rogue actor has set a trap in the module,” said Ahmad Malkawi, CEO and founder of Global Telecom. “Global Telecom’s driverless, host-less approach to connectivity reduces to nearly zero the probability that a hacker can exploit a random toaster, air conditioner or medical monitor to gain access to critical systems.”
