Original Press Release:
Z-World's New DeviceGate - A Low-Cost Solution to Web Enable New and Existing Products
In a world increasingly driven by network connectivity, Z-World's new DeviceGate Development Kit provides a comprehensive and low-cost solution for designers who want to quickly web enable their new or existing devices and systems. DeviceGate offers a seamless integration of powerful hardware and software, allowing users to remotely monitor and supervise any programmable device equipped with a serial interface-for as low as $34 per unit (qty. 1 000).
The DeviceGate Development Kit (only $399) contains everything needed to jumpstart development, including the RCM2200 core module (Z World's most compact Ethernet hardware) as the DeviceGate unit, a sample target unit, complete DeviceGate software with no royalties or license fees, and an easy-to-use demonstration system.
The DeviceGate unit acts as a multi-purpose programmable interface between the Internet/Ethernet and target devices. Operating independently from the target system, DeviceGate continiues to function even if the target system fails. DeviceGate can send E-mail alarms and facilitate communication for diagnosis and repair when an exceptional event occurs. DeviceGate can also use TCP and UDP sockets, serve dynamic web
pages, read inputs and variables remotely, and log data generated by the target system.
DeviceGate's unique software feature set combines the industry-proven Dynamic C® development system with all the necessary sample programs and library support for both the DeviceGate unit and target system. Development for the DeviceGate can be as simple as modifying an existing demo program (such as setting
the IP address) and then compiling and downloading the program to the DeviceGate unit. Library API functions are provided for programming the target.
DeviceGate is well suited for a wide range of applications, including vending and gaming machines, security systems, home automation, building controls, and manufacturing equipment. When implementing a DeviceGate solution in a production environment, designers can use any Ethernet-enabled Z-World single-board computer or core module featuring the powerful Rabbit 2000 microprocessor.
