PRODUCT DETAILS

The reTerminal E10-1 is an expansion board for the reTerminal which empowers rechargeable and portable functions, enhanced wireless communication and industrial data transmission along with audio capability. It ensures the reTerminal was even stronger and allows it to be deployed in more scenarios like high-speed industrial, agriculture applications, or enhanced wireless home, individual usages.

Features

  • Alternative Charging Modes: Supply by UPS-18650 dual chargeable battery, DC jack, and PoE function
  • Multiple Wireless Communication: Provide LoRaWAN/LTE/4G/5G all four data transmission abilities with antennas
  • Onboard Industrial Interface: Support RS-485, RS-232, and CAN Bus high-speed connection
  • Onboard Massive Storage: Available card slot supporting SSD with M.2 B KEY, SATA 2.0
  • Onboard Audio Capability: Equip with two microphones and one speaker for expandable Al-powered capabilities

 

The reTerminal E10-1 enables you to develop and deploy more edge computing applications while using the reTerminal, the Human-Machine Interface facility presented by Seeed. Featuring multiple bridge IC and high-function peripherals, this board gives the reTerminal the power of rechargeable and portable functions, enhanced wireless communication and industrial data transmission along with audio capability.

The reTerminal E10-1 is an expansion board and fully compatible with the reTerminal where they can be simply connected through the industrial high-speed signal connector right in the middle of the board. It applies the charge-discharge function for the reTerminal by equipping the UPS-18650 dual chargeable battery and connecting the DC jack power interface. Furthermore, there has been equipped with a Power over Ethernet(POE) module on the board, thereby the reTerminal E10-1 can be also charged through the Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 connector.

 

The board supports the reTerminal transmitting the data through the industrial interface like DP9 Connector for RS-232 and integrated 6 Pin Terminal Connector for RS485 and CAN. Meanwhile, there are high-function mini-PCIe and M.2 B Key connectors on the board, which helps the reTerminal to apply LoRaWAN and LTE wireless function and SSD storage ability. Additionally, with an onboard card slot, it can also contribute to the reTerminal to transfer data through 4G/5G communication.

 

Manufactured by adding dual analog microphones and one speaker, the reTerminal E10-1 employs the audio capability of the reTerminal, thereby enabling the reTerminal to function in more applications like high-speed industrial, agriculture applications, or enhanced wireless home, individual usages. Leveraging the functions on the board, the reTerminal can be deployed in infinite applications like connecting LoRaWAN devices for long-term communication in agriculture or connecting mmWave radar devices for health care in the home.

 

Application

  • Industrial: Machine monitoring, security alarm, industrial-level data transmitting and storing
  • Agriculture: Crop monitoring, insect alarm, LoRa/LTE/5G wireless communication
  • Home: Home monitoring, security alarm, power-off supported
  • Individual: Mobile-Human Machine Interaction computer
