Press Release (ePRNews.com) - AMARO, Italy - Nov 04, 2016 - Eurotech, a leading provider of embedded systems, Machine-to-Machine (M2M) platforms and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, announces the EDCK 4001 (http://www.eurotech.com/en/products/EDCK+4001), a new Everyware Device Cloud Development Kit that bundles all the hardware and software needed to prototype, develop, test and integrate a complete IoT solution that bridges the gap between sensors, devices and the cloud.
The EDCK 4001 Development Kit (http://www.eurotech.com/en/products/EDCK+4001) provides an ideal, all-inclusive environment to software developers and operational engineers where they can model their use cases using all the key elements typical of an industrial IoT chain (Gateway, PLC, field devices, field protocols, cloud services). The kit includes a ReliaGATE 10-11, Eurotech’s IoT Gateway based on the Cortex-A8 processor family for industrial applications, and a PLC connected to a demo board fitted with digital and analog controls.
The ReliaGATE 10-11 (http://www.eurotech.com/en/products/ReliaGATE+10-11) provides an Oracle Java SE Embedded 8 Virtual Machine, and Eurotech’s IoT device middleware Everyware Software Framework (ESF) (https://www.eurotech.com/en/products/software+services/ev…). ESF builds on Eclipse Kura, the open source Java/OSGi application framework for IoT gateways. Distributed and supported by Eurotech, ESF adds advanced security, diagnostics, provisioning, remote access and full integration with Everyware Cloud (EC) (https://www.eurotech.com/en/products/iot/iot+platform), Eurotech’s IoT Integration Platform.
With a complimentary trial license of EC, the user will have cloud-based access to the development kit (http://www.eurotech.com/en/products/EDCK+4001), allowing for the monitoring and management of devices, and additional functions like data storage, analytics, and remote software deployments and updates.
The EDCK 4001 Development Kit also includes a professional Reactive Blocks™ trial license by Bitreactive. Reactive Blocks is a visual tool for developing gateway applications from pre-built components. Tutorials to help get started on the EDCK 4001 hardware are available with purchase of the kit.
The EDCK 4001 Development Kit is available for orders today.
