SmartServer™ IoT Edge Server

smart server

Open device and data integration platform for automation, analytics and action

SmartServer IoT, an extensible, multi-protocol IoT edge server, enables automation and analytics for traditional industrial control and IoT networks. Its modern architecture creates an IoT-centric data fabric that quickly and securely delivers critical data and insights anywhere across edge networks for operational and energy efficiency.

SmartServer IoT is the industry’s first truly open and end-to-end appliance that allows users to define, provision and maintain devices, implement automation sequences, and create custom applications and visualization without locking in user data. With SmartServer IoT, you have the freedom to process data in an industrial, edge or cloud network for limitless applications. It is ideal for monitoring and controls, energy management and data analytics applications in smart buildings, cities and factories.

Learn about the benefits of SmartServer IoT.

SmartServer IoT Router Bundle

SmartServer IoT Router Bundles provide advanced LON-IP and LON FT routing, and optional TP-1250 routing, and are current generation replacement for iLON routers. Each bundle includes one SmartServer IoT router and one, two or four U60 LON FT DIN USB network interface(s). There is an option to add a U60 TP-1250 DIN USB interface to any order. For more information, please see the datasheet in the Resources tab.

SmartServer IoT Starter Kit

The SmartServer IoT Starter Kit is a fully assembled and pre-wired panel, packaged in a traveling case with custom foam interior, that is ideal for SmartServer IoT Partners. The panel includes a SmartServer IoT, U60 LON FT network interface and commonly-used open and interoperable IoT devices, and software libraries and configuration files are all available for download. The starter kit is used to demonstrate a multi-protocol network for SmartServer IoT training and presentations. For more information, please see the sellsheet in the Resources tab.
