Mar. 8, 2017 – Artila Electronics, a designer and manufacturer of embedded device networking and computing, has released the new FreeRTOS based, IBM Bluemix ready remote I/O module, RIO-2010BM, which is powered by a 32-bit NXP LPC1768 100MHz ARM Cortex M3 processor and equipped with 64KB SRAM 512KB Flash.
The combination of the “low-power ARM cortex M3 plus the high-efficient FreeRTOS make RIO-2010BM an ideal lightweight computing platform for device networking and remote monitoring,” says the company, adding that the RIO-2010BM also provides alarm setting and local logic to trigger the on-board relay once the alarm event occurred. RIO-2010BM is designed with FreeRTOS+lwIP (lightweight version of TCP/IP), which can automatically connect to Bluemix with verified instructions and push sensor data to Cloud with Transport Layer Security (TLS) and MQTT Protocol. Applying on a Watson IoT platform, users can create a web-based application to monitor and analyze data. The industrial I/O of RIO-2010BM features one 10/100 MHz Ethernet port, one full modem RS-232, one isolated RS-485, eight channels of relay, 16 photo-isolated digital inputs and one-wire interface for temperature and humidity sensors.
