Advantech Launches UNO-220-P4N2AE Raspberry Pi Industrial Gateway Kit with PoE Functionality
Advantech, a leading provider of embedded computing solutions, is pleased to announce its UNO-220-P4N2AE Raspberry Pi-based industrial PoE gateway kit – the latest generation of its UNO-220 product series.
To bridge the gap between the IoT and IIoT, Advantech is continuously innovating industrial applications of Raspberry Pi (RPi). The UNO-220-P4N2AE system inherits the same hardware advantages as the previous model, but also features eight additional GPIOs and one serial port for advanced data acquisition applications. Moreover, UNO-220-P4N2AE has been optimized with the addition of power over Ethernet (PoE) functionality as well as a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) to ensure security for cloud-based data processing. As an industrial-grade chassis with PoE capabilities, UNO-220-P4N2AE enables the extension of Raspberry Pi applications to remote factory areas.
Industrial-Grade I/O Board Compatible with Raspberry
Designed to serve as an intelligent gateway for diverse IoT operations, the integrated RPi HAT I/O board offers plug-and-play compatibility with Raspberry Pi 4. Although UNO-220-P4N2AE is delivered without a Raspberry Pi SBC, the pre-finished mounting holes and accompanying attachment screws ensure easy assembly without necessitating special tools or technical expertise. To optimize the system design, UNO-220-P4N2AE is built with an additional eight GPIOs and one RS-232/485 serial port as well as a real-time clock (RTC) with battery backup for precise time keeping. Equipped with an 8 GB internal SD card and preloaded OS image, UNO-220-P4N2AE also enables RPi SBCs to identify the system and automatically configure the GPIOs and drivers, facilitating the use of Raspbian® and related application software.
PoE Functionality Ensures Easy, Convenient Deployment
To ensure rapid installation in remote areas that may be difficult to reach with a power cable, UNO-220-P4N2AE supports the IEEE 802.3at PoE-PD standard. This capability allows a single Ethernet cable to be used for both data transmissions and power delivery. With support for PoE functionality, users can easily deploy RPi-based applications in remote or difficult-to-reach areas without significant cost. Accordingly, Advantech’s UNO-220-P4N2AE gateway kit with PoE support provides customers with a cost-effective edge-to-cloud data sensing solution that requires minimal wiring.
