Avnet SmartEdge Industrial IoT Gateway, Powered by Raspberry Pi, Set to Simplify and Accelerate Adoption of IIoT Applications

Avnet SmartEdge Industrial IoT gateway now available to ship from Newark

Chicago, September 16, 2019: Newark, the Development Distributor, is now shipping the Avnet SmartEdge Industrial IoT Gateway; the low-cost industrial gateway powered by Raspberry Pi. Since the launch of the product at Embedded World Germany in February 2019, there has been significant demand for the gateway for use in a range of applications including: building management, vehicle monitoring, industrial automation and predictive maintenance.

The Avnet SmartEdge Industrial IoT Gateway, coupled with seamless, secure connectivity enabled by Avnet’s IoTConnect platform delivers a powerful set of features to gather, analyze and provide actionable, real-time data visualization—all at a best-in-class price. Avnet’s IoTConnect platform runs on Microsoft Azure, a comprehensive set of edge-to-cloud services that are enterprise-ready to build, deploy, and manage IoT connected assets efficiently.

The gateway provides versatile connectivity with data intelligence for a wide range of industrial 4.0 applications–including additional ports to handle industrial protocols, higher power input range, a trusted computing module for comprehensive end-to-end hardware data security, and a robust wall or DIN rail mountable metal enclosure. These features come alongside a level of simplicity, capability and accessibility never before achieved in this environment. Developers familiar with prototyping on a Raspberry Pi device will be able to bring their designs to an industrial environment without having to switch platforms.

Hari Kalyanaraman, Global Head of Single Board Computers at Farnell and Newark, said: “We are very excited by the conversations we have had with customers about the Avnet SmartEdge Industrial IoT Gateway. Ease of use and seamless, secure connectivity make it ideal for developing industrial automation applications such as remote monitoring, predictive maintenance, process control and automation. Couple these advantages with best in class pricing, and we believe this device could be a key driver in the further adoption of Industrial IoT applications.”

Pete Bartolotta, President of Business Transformation at Avnet, said: “The Avnet SmartEdge Industrial IoT Gateway will allow developers to design and scale their IoT projects faster and easier than ever before by leveraging a familiar platform that’s now industrialized for scale: the versatile Raspberry Pi. This product is a testament to the combined power of Avnet and Newark–together our ecosystem provides the technology, support and tools developers need throughout prototyping and mass market production to bring IoT into the mainstream quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively.”

The Avnet SmartEdge Industrial IoT Gateway is available from Newark in North America and  Farnell in Europe.
