Winmate Joins Microsoft Azure IoT Certification Program

Winmate has joined Microsoft Azure Certified for Internet of Things (IoT), allowing customers to have IoT solutions up and running quickly with hardware and software that has been pre-tested and verified to work with Microsoft Azure IoT services. 

Devices benefitting from this collaboration include rugged tablets from Winmate's range, for data capture in the field, vehicles and factories, along with industrial IoT gateways engineered to be a stable, secure communication bridge between local devices, sensors and the cloud. 

Being Microsoft Azure Certified for IoT means that the rugged tablets work with an ecosystem of devices and platforms to allow businesses to reach customers wherever they are, accelerating the deployment of IoT further. With the EAC Mini IoT Gateway family being certified to support the ecosystem of Microsoft Azure IoT, users can save time and simplify integration of their device with cloud software solutions for whichever IoT application they want.

Devices include Winmate’s M900P, M900PT, M101P and M101S rugged tablets, along with the EAC Mini IoT Gateway family: EACIL20, EACIL21, EACIL67, and EACFA20. 

The M900P and M900PT are compact 8” rugged tablets equipped with the Intel® Apollo Lake Pentium® N4200 processor and a D-Sub interface connector that provides connection with your vehicle for automotive integration. The M101P and M101S come with a larger, yet still lightweight 10.1” form factor. The M101P is equipped with the power-efficient Intel® Apollo Lake Pentium® N4200 processor, and the M101S with the high performance Intel® Core™ i5-7200U Kaby Lake processor. The four models feature IP65 water and dust proof enclosure with support for versatile communication options (GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, 4G LTE) and data capture methods (Barcode reader, RFID reader, Smart Card reader).

The EACIL20 comes with a wide range of expansion modules to offer plentiful options for additional serial interfaces and USB ports to connectivity options such as Wi-Fi and 4G LTE; meanwhile, the EACIL21 and IP67 water and dust proof EACIL67 feature USB Type-C technology, meaning they can provide display output, transfer USB data and deliver up to 15W (5V/3A) of power all at the same time. This duo also contain the option for WiFi and have all necessary connectors for connectivity. The EACFA20 boasts more than a dozen expansion possibilities thanks to the expansion modules providing various options for extra serial interfaces like CANBUS and digital I/O, or wireless connectivity options with 4G LTE.
