Low Power Industrial IoT GatewayTS-7553-V2 Thumbnail

This versatile embedded single board computer hits on all the main points for a low power, cost effective, Internet-of-Things (IoT) capable, and ready-to-deploy OEM board with an emphasis on data integrity.

The TS-7553-V2 offers the ability to communicate seamlessly with several different networks simultaneously from a single device. Using the onboard peripherals the system can connect to Ethernet, WiFi, Bluetooth, USB, RS-232, RS-485, and CAN networks or devices. Built in module interfaces like the XBee/NimbeLink socket and internal USB ports allow expansion to other networks like Cellular, DigiMesh, ZigBee, Lora, and other proprietary or industry specific networks. This ability to communicate over a wide variety of wired and wireless interfaces puts the TS-7553-V2 in an excellent position to be an IoT node or gateway.

TS-7553-V2 with TS logoA Nine-Axis Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) motion tracking device containing a gyroscope, accelerometer and compass is an on-board option for asset management, fleet management, and other applications which would require sensing motion or vibration in the environment.

The TS-7553-V2 is also well suited for applications which require a simple HMI interface. With an off the shelf, low cost enclosure that can include a backlit monochrome 128x64px LCD and four button keypad it is easy to create interactive menus for the user. An optional DIN mount makes it easy to mount to DIN rails for an fast off-the-shelf solution.

Applications with strict low power requirements will appreciate the work that's been done to reduce power consumption to less than 2 W in typical conditions and a 9 mW sleep mode. Power over Ethernet (PoE) is supported via a daughter card, if desired.


Robust and Rugged Engineering Close up of TS-7553-V2 Marvell Armada CPU

Each component on the TS-7553-V2 has been carefully chosen to ensure not only reliable operation in the field, but also to get maximum product lifespan for 10+ years. The fanless design of the TS-7553-V2 paired with the low cost enclosure is able to withstand high vibration, high debris, and a wide temperature range of -40 °C to 85 °C.




RELIABLE DATA STORAGE WITH TS-SILO AND FRAM Close up of TS-7553-V2 Marvell Armada CPU

The TS-SILO power reserve ensures that there will never be data loss or corruption when there is unexpected interruptions in power. TS-SILO provides another 30 seconds of operation to allow graceful system shutdown, protecting data stored on the on board eMMC or a microSD card. The onboard MLC eMMC flash is configurable as pseudo SLC (pSLC) memory for further reliability. Additionally the TS-7553-V2 integrates Ferroelectric RAM (FRAM or FeRAM ) which combines non-volatile data storage with incredibly high read/write endurance for the ultimate in reliability for heavy data logging applications.


Short Time to Market with Long Term Deployment Abstract Code

Everything is preloaded to get your application up and running quickly. Debian Linux OS, utilities, and tools are preloaded to help you get the most out of the hardware features. The guaranteed 10+ year lifecycle ensures a long-term deployment in the field, free from expensive redesigns that commonly accompany "low-cost" competitor products with no guaranteed long-term availability.

The Next Generation of an Old Favorite Side by Side View

The TS-7553-V2 is everything you loved about the TS-7553 and much more, kept at the original price point. The increased CPU performance, higher capacity memory, reliable eMMC flash, and inclusion of new features like WiFi/Bluetooth, cell modem and TS-SILO, make the TS-7553-V2 a very attractive and complete solution for applications requiring low power computing. With a nearly identical physical footprint and high application code portability from the TS-7553, it's an easy replacement, so upgrading in the field is as seamless as possible.

Hardware

The TS-7553-V2 single board computer features desktop-class hardware in a small, enclosable footprint, featuring:

  • NXP i.MX6UL 698MHz ARM Cortex-A7 CPU
  • 512 MB DDR3 RAM
  • 4 GB MLC eMMC Flash, configurable as pSLC for added reliability

Industry standard connectors, such as USB host and device ports, Ethernet, and serial ports, are included. In addition, rugged screw terminals and a user programmable button are also included. Additional storage is possible through the microSD socket. A battery-backed real time clock (BBRTC) keeps accurate time for the system and a watchdog timer is there to help when a system becomes unresponsive in the field.

The TS-7553-V2 features popular I/O and interfaces, including:

  • 2x CAN Bus
  • 1x RS-485
  • 4x RS-232
  • 1x TTL UART
  • 1x Relay
  • 1x XBee Interface (can support NimbleLink cell modem and XBee)
  • 1x Cellular Modem
  • 1x Wireless and Bluetooth Module
  • 3x USB Host Ports, 1x External and 2x Internal
  • Dedicated console via USB Type B connector
  • 1x Nine-Axis (Gyro + Accelerometer + Compass) MEMS MotionTracking Device

Applications with strict low power requirements will appreciate the work that's been done to reduce power consumption to less than 2 watts in typical conditions and 9 mW sleep mode. Also, applications which are prone to unexpected power outages or frequent power cycling can rely on the optional TS-SILO to provide up to 30 seconds of power reserve in order to run shutdown scripts and gracefully halt the system in order to prevent filesystem and disk corruption.

Other options for the TS-7553-V2 include Power over Ethernet (PoE) and Cellular Modem for convenient power and remote communication with cellular networks. Also, an optional low cost monochrome 128x64 px LCD and 4 button keypad for HMI is available, both located on the top of the enclosure. An optional DIN mount makes it easy to mount to DIN rails for an fast off-the-shelf solution.
