Inter-device Connectivity and Data Communication: An IIoT gateway may connect equipment across multiple technical generations and protocols, gather performance data, and enable system, machine, and device interoperability to facilitate effective automation and communication.
Real-Time Processing and Analyzing: Edge-enabled IIoT gateways can deal with real-time processing of data from numerous downlink sources. As such, the gateways lessen the load on the cloud by doing away with the need for data to be transported across large distances to a data center. Data can buffer at the edge to prevent information loss, which serves as a fail-safe in the event that the link between the edge and the cloud is severed.
Condition Monitoring and Predictive Maintenance: Manufacturers track individual machine performance and health metrics using IIoT gateways and sensors. A digital system has processed the data automatically, maintenance staff then use the information to identify probable machine failure. This allows eams to switch from reactive or calendar-based maintenance tactics to condition-based or even predictive maintenance. Read further about IoT-based elevator predictive maintenance.
Operational Visibility and Workflow Optimization: IIoT-gateways gather data from managers and equipment in real-time. This enables managers and supervisors to monitor production runs, get precise images of the production process at any moment and stage, receive timely complete visibility into production processes, optimize processes, and make sure problems can be dealt with as soon as they arise.
The most compelling benefits of using industrial IoT edge gateways lie in reduced cost! This can be illustrated from three aspects:
Save device cost: A cost-effective strategy that minimizes hardware changes while optimizing performance is to deploy IIoT gateways. The majority of IIOT gateways are very flexible and customizable, allowing you to target new markets using other protocols without having to modify your hardware or software, so you can locate the suitable equipment without worrying about compatibility with your current control system.
Save labor cost: Simply connect the gateway to the network where you wish to connect to another fieldbus or Ethernet network; no more cables need to be laid by employees. As the IIoT gateway regularly provides MQTT API interface and ready-to-use applications like Node-Red and ThingsBoard, you may easily integrate it into your control systems, saving extra developer costs.
Save cloud cost: Edge gateways for the industrial internet of things can lessen the load on data centers and the cloud. Companies using IoT Edge gateways will save a lot of internet bandwidth by collecting and processing data locally because less raw data needs to be transferred to the cloud. This is especially true for companies with metered internet who pay for the bandwidth they use.

Industrial IoT gateway mainly works in three steps: data acquisition, and data processing, and cloud connectivity.
Easy and quick data acquisition: In order to establish OT connectivity, an IIoT gateway often has built-in fieldbus-based interfaces, protocols, and data collection techniques. Fieldbus equipment is most frequently connected using serial ports, and the OT device protocol is Modbus. This combination will enable field site PLC data to be efficiently collected by IIoT gateways.
Efficient data processing: To make OT data integration into IT applications simple and secure, organize massive amounts of raw data logically and meaningfully, and transform raw data into useful information for big data analytics or instant responses at the field site, IIoT gateway applications typically include a Modbus2MQTT API and GUI.
Energy-saving cloud connectivity: To prevent unauthorized access, the IIoT gateway often needs a widely used IT communication protocol like MQTT. Bringing data into a cloud platform is also made simple by the high interoperability with cloud service providers. You may also interested in Paho MQTT example.
Industrial IoT gateways essentially act as computers that let gadgets and sensors connect with one another and send data to the cloud. They enable communication between devices and are comparable to a few locally operated smart home gateways.
The main benefit of using industrial IoT gateways is that the cloud don’t need to deal with the massive amounts of data that sensors and IIoT devices create. IIoT edge computing gateways don’t transfer all of the obtained raw data to the cloud for processing and analysis, since they can gather, filter, process, and analyze data locally.
The IIoT gateways, on the other hand, are typically outfitted with strong CPUs and enormous storage to run feature-specific apps and deploy edge computing to lessen the load on the cloud and data centers. In order to prevent privacy leaks, smart home gateways are more likely to act as a local control hub or router.

Compact Design: IIoT gateways’ small size facilitates their deployment in situations with limited space that cannot accommodate full-size desktop PCs.
Wide Temperature Design: IIoT gateways are designed to work reliably and ideally in a variety of severe temperatures, ranging from -25°C to 85°C.
Industrial-Grade Components: IIoT gateways are using industrial-grade component to handle deployment in harsh environments and rugged outer enclosure to protect internal components.
Energy Efficiency: IIoT gateways usually use low-powered yet efficient Arm-based processors, to offers great flexibility for industrial applications and IoT deployment that require low power computing performance.
Rich Connectivity Options: IIoT Gateway comes with a variety of wired and wireless connectivity, for deployingt in remote environments where stable connectivity is not always available.

Ethernet: IIoT gateways can use wired RJ45 ports to connect to the internet. Some may include PoE port to offer power and ethernet over a single cable.
Wi-Fi 6: The next generation of Wi-Fi (IEEE802.11ax) to deliver fast, reliable, low-latency communication. This is crucial for industry 4.0 application. You can explore our DSGW-380 WiFi 6 gateway.
Cellular: Cellular LTE 4G offer blazing-fast connectivity. DSGW-081 NXP IoT gateways come equipped with dual SIM slots, allowing gateways to connect to two different internet service providers for redundancy if needed. Cellular connectivity is extremely important for remote-area deployment, by allowing IIoT gateways to connect to the internet if Wi-Fi and wired connectivity are not available.
Yes, of course. Raspberry Pi are considered by some organations as industrial gateways. It enjoys benefits of small-size and rich connectivity, Linux OS and Python runability, and vibrant developer community. Here we have a detialed illustration of Raspberry Pi as IoT gateway. But some look for better alternatives with more powerful processing power and memory, richer connectivity, and more support for self-developed software. Thus we launched Dusun Pi series.
