Industrial IOT Hardware
ESP32 is a SoC where you can start your first IOT prototype with. There are many development boards available on the market. Its connectivity and speed make it possibly suitable for any IIOT application. In terms of programming, there are few IDEs and Languages you can use with ESP32.
Simply you can go with Arduino or ESP-IDF. I mostly use platform IO for programming ESP devices. Most of the arduino board compatible hardware is made compatible with ESP32 devices, and there are libraries to quickly get into the programming.
One of the hassles with ESP devices, is the boot pin. Once you have good hardware, the latest drivers and latest ESP-IDF version, putting it into boot mode automatically will not be a problem. When you are done testing your ideas, You need to implement it.
Then the problems with making ESP32 ready for Industrial Environments blocks you. You need proper enclosing, mounting and then good power supply, IO isolations, EMI Safety and reliable industrial grade electronics.
NORVI IIOT Industrial ESP32 is the most suited product on the market for any industrial IOT implementations. It has a combination of flexibility of ESP32 and Reliability of a PLC. It has featured your most familiar hardware, a 0.96 SSD1306 OLED Display and three buttons on top of the controller for any external commands.
That is what you need, a display to see what’s going on, and buttons to command that makes your troubleshooting quicker.
We know you are going to code the ESP32, so we focused our product on easy diagnosis and troubleshooting. We have been where you are, all the difficulties in making a custom board or using a development board in industrial application are solved in NORVI IIOT.
NORVI IIOT Industrial ESP32 is a direct competitor for most PLCs out-there.
All the Inputs and Relays in the NORVI IIOT is accessible with the same GPIO numbers as you program your development board. It doesn’t need any additional drivers or libraries. It has a built in USB port for programming.
