TS-7553-V2 SBC

This versatile embedded single board computer hits on all the main points for a low power, cost effective, Internet-of-Things (IoT) capable, and ready-to-deploy OEM board with an emphasis on data integrity.

The TS-7553-V2 offers the ability to communicate seamlessly with several different networks simultaneously from a single device. Using the onboard peripherals the system can connect to Ethernet, WiFi, Bluetooth, USB, RS-232, RS-485, and CAN networks or devices. Built in module interfaces like the XBee/NimbeLink socket and internal USB ports allow expansion to other networks like Cellular, DigiMesh, ZigBee, Lora, and other proprietary or industry specific networks. This ability to communicate over a wide variety of wired and wireless interfaces puts the TS-7553-V2 in an excellent position to be an IoT node or gateway.

A Nine-Axis Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) motion tracking device containing a gyroscope, accelerometer and compass is an on-board option for asset management, fleet management, and other applications which would require sensing motion or vibration in the environment.

The TS-7553-V2 is also well suited for applications which require a simple HMI interface. With an off the shelf, low cost enclosure that can include a backlit monochrome 128x64px LCD and four button keypad it is easy to create interactive menus for the user. An optional DIN mount makes it easy to mount to DIN rails for an fast off-the-shelf solution.

Applications with strict low power requirements will appreciate the work that’s been done to reduce power consumption to less than 2 W in typical conditions and a 9 mW sleep mode. Power over Ethernet (PoE) is supported via a daughter card, if desired.
