The EDCK 4001 is a Development Kit for Everyware Cloud that provides a learning environment and a testbed for industrial IoT applications; it targets professional developers with an Embedded, IT or OT background.
Creating an End-to-End solution typically requires bridging Field devices with Cloud-based services; the EDCK 4001 replicates a complete scenario, in which the field devices are simulated by a panel that provides some data sources and receivers (buttons, LEDs, etc). The bidirectional data and command flow between the Cloud and the Field is managed by a Gateway, which is connected to a PLC that controls the panel.
The preinstalled IoT application shows how to implement a complete solution, including remote device management and OTA package deployment. The EDCK 4001 includes a ReliaGATE 10-11, a Eurotech Multi-service IoT Edge Gateway for industrial applications based on the TI AM335X Cortex-A8 (Sitara) processor family, with 512MB of RAM, 4GB of eMMC and a user-accessible microSD slot.
The ReliaGATE 10-11 comes with a genuine Oracle Java SE Embedded 8 Virtual Machine and Everyware Software Framework (ESF), a commercial, enterprise-ready edition of Eclipse Kura, the open source Java/OSGi middleware for IoT Edge Gateways.
Distributed and supported by Eurotech, ESF adds advanced security, diagnostics, provisioning, remote access and full integration with Everyware Cloud (EC), Eurotech IoT Integration Platform.
A trial EC license is also included, providing advanced services like data retention and retrieval, analytics, dashboarding, VPN and device management, including OTA updating.
EDCK 4001 also includes a professional Reactive Blocks™ by Bitreactive trial license, a visual tool for developing reactive or event driven applications for IoT or other embedded systems.
