EI-52 - Ultra Compact, Powerful Edge Intelligence System
  • Intel 11th Gen. Core i5/i3/Celeron processor, up to 16GB DDR4 memory, and 64GB SSD onboard
  • Pre-installed EdgeX with data acquisition API and support for 20+ different devices
  • Expansion support for Intel Movidius AI accelerators and 5G modules

The EI-52 for fast development and deployment of your AI application

Advantech’s EI-52 accelerates AIoT deployment, application development and remote device management, combining high-speed 11th Generation Tiger Lake processing power with integrated software capabilities and microservices architecture to shorten development and deployment times of your application. With the additional expansion support for AI co-processors like Intel Movidius or super-fast 5G cellular connectivity, the EI-52 is a flexible intelligent Edge device suitable for a variety of demanding AIoT applications. 
The EI-52 is a compact high-performance system featuring Intel 11th Gen. Core processors, and comes with a 64GB SSD and a choice of 8GB or 16GB DDR4 system memory installed. I/O features include dual display output, dual Gigabit Ethernet, four USB3.0, two USB2.0 ports, two RS-232/422/485 and four Antenna break out ports for wireless connectivity. For expansion, there are M.2 and MiniPCIe slots supporting a host of options including the VEGA-330, a co-processor add-on card featuring Intel Movidius Myriad X VPUs, and the AIW-355 5G cellular module offering low latency, high-speed internet connections perfect for AIoT applications. The EI-52 chassis is ultra compact and fanless and includes a die-cast metal top plate aiding heat dissipation and helping the system achieve a wide-range operating temperature of 10°C to +50°C.

EdgeX and WISE-DeviceOn pre-installed

The EI-52 comes with EdgeX pre-installed an API built on EdgeX Foundry a highly flexible, scalable vendor-neutral, open-source software framework that facilitates interoperability between IoT devices and applications at the Edge. Using the pre-installed Edge X on EI-52 helps developers avoid delving into different data formats and device APIs for connecting edge data to cloud services. Edge X API supports over 15 industrial IoT protocols including OPC-UA, Modbus, MQTT, REST and BACnet making it ideal for a wide-range of applications. This intelligent system enables edge data pre-processing and analysis and comes with pre-configured tools for quick connection to Ali/AWS/Azure cloud applications. The EI-52 has software/hardware integration capabilities microservices architecture enabling development times to be reduced by up to 50%.

For device management, the EI-52 also comes with WISE-DeviceOn pre-installed, offering several functions like remote monitoring and access of field devices, remote power management and data and device security. WISE-DeviceOn enables the centralized management of up to hundreds of IoT devices in different locations. This means that IT operations of global organisations, with sites across different locations, can monitor, manage, and maintain systems remotely and easily from a centralised control room.

The brief we gave to Impulse was technically challenging and made harder by the timeframe which we set them to deliver a solution. The end result exceeded our expectations in terms of the solution's specification, performance and delivery date for the Albeego Pinion.
