NPE X500 is a series of industrial computers which you can easily adapt to your needs by choosing from the available options. Upgraded NPE X500 M3 industrial computer series use latest Processor Module, powered by Quad-core Cortex-A53 1.2GHz processor. The module increase the device’s performance up to ten times, maintaining low power consuption and optimal price of this solution. NPE features industrial protocol support, e.g. Modbus, M-Bus, SNMP, MQTT and more.
Ready-to-use programmable automation controller
The NPE X500platform has a variety of functionalities and is easy to configure at the same time– it combines ease of use, characteristic of simple devices with the possibilities of embedded computers.
State of the art performance reached with Quad-Core Cortex A53 1.2 GHz fanless processor,allows using NPE X500 device for specific application, like smartgrid remote control
Quad-Core Cortex A53 1.2 GHz or ARM11 700 MHz processor
1024MB or 512MB RAM and 4GB NAND FLASH
Rich set of I/O interfaces: 4x Digital Input, 4x Digital Output
Economic 1-Wire bus, typically used for reading temperature and humidity sensors
The design of the NPE X500 allows for trouble-free operation in industrial conditions. It has a fanless case and is characterised by high resistance to external conditions and high reliability. The Linux system provides stable operation of the device.
NPE X500 is a multichannel telemetry module, providing constant uninterrupted access to data. It enables you to save the results of measurements and parameter values of connected devices - data can be saved to internal memory. You can also save data to internal and external databases.
NPE X500 can generate alarm signals and provide information on current parameter values. Built-in LTE/3G/GPRS modem enables wireless communication.
With a built-in GSM modem, NPE X500 offers advanced functions and can be configured as an industrial modem and a router operating in GPRS, EDGE network as well as in 3G mobile network. You can easily get a backup connection mode and define routing.
You can build a VPN with NPE X500. You can access other devices with one telemetry module with a defined public IP. The VPN guarantees high security of data transmission.
3G technology provides higher speed and lower latency at packet data transmission.
GPS receiver allows to use the satellite navigation system. The system is widely used in vehicle monitoring (e.g. transport, railway industry or municipal communication). It allows to synchronize time in extensive industrial networks. It is also used to set a route for industrial machines.
iMod Platform Support.NPE X500 can easily work with iMod telemetry modules and in nearest future with iMod 500.
iModCloud Ecosystem. A combination of a cloud service with a web user interface and special industrial devices that are fully manageable remotely. Core iModCloud Ecosystem elements are iMod controllers and iModCloud service. iMod controllers and iModCloud service together stand as a complete solution.
iModCloud - Dedicated Cloud Service
iModCloud - a dedicated cloud service - allows you to visualize and control parameters of any number of devices via a web browser. Now iModCloud expands to support NPE X500 devices.
With iModCloud you can control all your facilities via any mobile device, register data and share selected information with other users.
It a matter of time before we will see Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3+ successor, probably called Compute Module 4, a new milestone of professional embedded IoT module. What might be the specification of this highly expected development board? What changes will it bring to Industrial use of IoT?
