May 28, 2018 – Artila Electronics has launched the new FreeRTOS programmable device server, Aport-214PG. Merging the legacy RS-485 based devices into an industrial Ethernet network can be a challenging task to system integrators due to slow responses and various data format.
Artila’s Aport-214PG is powered by a 32-bit Atmel SAM4E16E 120MHz Arm Cortex-M4 processor which is equipped with 256KB SRAM, 3MB Flash and FreeRTOS real-time operating system. The module features one 10/100 MHz Ethernet port, two RS-485, four isolated digital input channels, two relay output channels and micro SD socket. The C programmable device is shipped with a FreeRTOS+lwIP board support package (BSP), device manager utility and example programs. Users can download the Toolchain, Atmel Studio from the Atmel website. Web configuration and I/O controls are available in the Aport-214PG application development kit. The device manager utility features device discovery, network configuration, user’s web page and firmware upload is also included.
