NEXCOM Industrial IoT Gateways & Controllers Build up Smart Manufacturing

NEXCOM's latest NISE 3720 series industrial IoT gateways and controllers provides enhanced computing and graphics capabilities to pave the way for smart manufacturing.

Fremont, CA (PRWEB) January 06, 2015


NEXCOM has released the NISE 3720 series industrial IoT gateways and controllers for smart manufacturing. Supporting 5th generation Intel® Core™ processors, the NISE 3720 series provides enhanced computing and graphics capabilities. Adding support for cross-protocol communication capability, it also connects factories, enabling intensive data analysis of a data concentrator and information visualization required for big supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) applications.

In addition to big SCADA applications, the NISE 3720 series can support high performance computing, graphics conversion, video transcoding, Ultra HD 4K display, fieldbus communication, and Wi-Fi/3G/LTE capabilities. Further, it can consolidate and display real-time data and surveillance videos, providing valuable insights into operational improvements and virtual presence at factory floors to increase productivity and safety.

"Factories are changing, looking for ways to squeeze greater efficiency from daily operation. Industrial computing platforms like the NEXCOM 3720 series are required to perform more tasks including data acquisition, data processing, data visualization, and data communication. Featuring the 5th generation Intel Core processors, the NISE 3720 series fulfills these new demands with a low power envelope, enabling data-driven decision making while delivering high system performance and high reliability," said Joe Lin, General Manager of NEXCOM's IoT Automation Solutions Business Group.

As communication interfaces and fieldbus protocols differ from factory to factory, the NISE 3720 series industrial IoT gateways and controllers are equipped with a set of I/Os and support fieldbus networking—including PROFIBUS, PROFINET, DeviceNet, EtherNet/IP, and EtherCAT—and internet connectivity through modular expansion. For use in SCADA applications, the NISE 3720 series can not only monitor and control, for instance, PLCs and remote I/Os across factories but also interoperate with business clouds.

In addition, the NISE 3720 series are designed with the free remote management tool NEXCOM Xcare™ 3.0 to simplify remote monitoring, configuration, backup, and restore of the industrial IoT gateways and controllers.

To respond to environmental challenges in factories, the NISE 3720 series offers enhanced electromagnetic compatibility and electrical insulation and has acquired FCC Class B certification to deliver high system reliability against electronic noise and spikes. It also follows a fanless design, has a compact rugged aluminum enclosure, and supports an extended temperature range from -20 to 60°C to ensure smooth daily operations.

The NEXCOM NISE 3720 series offers a flexible combination of processor and expansion configurations. The 3720 series is available with a choice of 5th and 4th generation Intel Core processors and comes with four expansion configurations: one PCIe, two PCIe, two PCI, and one PCI and one PCIe expansion slots.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
