Eurotech announced a new industrial IoT development kit which bundles all the hardware and software needed to create IoT applications from field-to-cloud in minutes.
The EDCK 4001 kit, called the Everyware Device Cloud Development Kit, helps developers to accelerate prototyping, developing, testing and integrating a complete IoT solution from sensors to devices to the cloud.
The EDCK 4001 can be used to model specific IoT applications based on a template that integrates all the key elements typical of an industrial IoT chain (Gateway, PLC, field devices, field protocols, cloud services), as stated in the announcement.
The kit includes a ReliaGATE 10-11, Eurotech’s industrial IoT Gateway based on the Cortex-A8 processor, and a PLC connected to a demo board fitted with digital and analog controls.
The ReliaGATE 10-11 provides an Oracle Java SE Embedded 8 Virtual Machine, and Everyware Software Framework (ESF), Eurotech’s IoT device middleware, which builds on Eclipse Kura, the open source Java/OSGi application framework for IoT gateways.
ESF adds advanced security, diagnostics, provisioning, remote access and full integration with Everyware Cloud (EC), Eurotech’s IoT Integration Platform.
Also included in the kit is a trial license of EC, which provides cloud-based access, visualization and management of the device, and additional services like data storage, analytics and remote software deployment and update.
The kit also comes with a professional Reactive Blocks trial license by Bitreactive, a visual tool for developing gateway applications from pre-built components. Dedicated tutorials are made available to get started on the EDCK 4001 hardware.
