The MEC Embedded System with Intel Atom Processor X series (E3900)

  • Intel Atom Processor E3900 Series (Apollo Lake-I)
  • 1 x DDR3L 1600MHz SODIMMs
  • Up to 2 x RJ45 GbE Ports
  • M.2 SSD and eMMC Storage Support
  • 3G/LTE Module Support (mPCIe Expansion)
  • Isolated COM Port design

CASwell has released the new industrial-grade MEC-1200 IoT gateways to enhance control and sensoring in smart factories but also for monitoring and managing energy control systems, especially with renwable energies where the highest resource utilization is indispensable.

The MEC-1200 is based on the Intel Apollo Lake-I platform using the Intel Atom E3900 series of SoC and up to 8 GByte of 1866 MHz SO-DIMM DDR3L main memory. Two RJ-45 Gigabit-Ethernet ports – enabled by the Intel Ethernet-Controller I210-IT – and Wi-Fi 802.11n/ac are providing network functionality. This can by option be enhanced with a 3G/4G module for cellular connectivity to provide even more networking flexibility.

The MEC-1200 offers the choice to alternatively be equipped with the quad-core Intel Atom x5-E3940 or x7-E3950 for more processing power when needed for managing a more complex smart grid, for example. Furthermore, the MEC-1200 features four RS-485, RS-422 or RS-232 COM ports to connect legacy or other devices that require this serial interface. For a more demanding industrial environment, the MEC-1200 additionally supports wide range operating temperatures from -20°C to 70°C.

The MEC-1200 is well suited for “supervisory control and data acquisition” (SCADA) in smart factories or similar deployments and are perfect solutions when connecting a monitoring system to a photovoltaic power station for renewable energy. That’s why they both are compliant with the IEC 61850-3 and the IEEE 1613 international communication standards for electric power substations.

The CASwell MEC-1200 are available in different configurations so they can be equipped according to many customer needs and networking requirements.
