Eurotech, a provider of embedded systems, Machine-to-Machine (M2M) platforms and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, announced the 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 ECDK 4001 Development Kit provides an ideal, all-inclusive environment to software developers and operational engineers, where they can model their use cases starting from a realistic template that integrates all the key elements typical of an industrial IoT chain (Gateway, PLC, field devices, field protocols, cloud services).
The EDCK 4001 Development Kit includes a ReliaGATE 10-11, Eurotech’s IoT Gateway for industrial applications based on the Cortex-A8 processor family, 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. Distributed and supported by Eurotech, ESF adds advanced security, diagnostics, provisioning, remote access and full integration with Everyware Cloud (EC), Eurotech’s IoT Integration Platform.
The EDCK 4001 Development Kit includes a trial license of EC, which provides cloud-based access, visualisation and management of the device, and additional services like data storage, analytics and remote software deployment and update.
The EDCK 4001 Development Kit also includes 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.
The EDCK 4001 Development Kit is available for orders today.
