The SRG-IMX8P Orchestrates Industrial Efficiency

How the SRG-IMX8P made an industrial automation system more than just the sum of its parts.

A global player in industrial manufacturing required an industrial PC (IPC) that could serve as a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) with which to integrate a range of software assets from different sources, as well as their own proprietary software to create a more synergized industrial automation system. AAEON’s SRG-IMX8P IoT Gateway was exactly what they needed.

Managing Multiple Concurrent Datasets
The chosen solution would need to be able to concurrently manage various software stacks.
Resilient Operation in Industrial Settings
The solutions would need to withstand harsh conditions with fluctuations in temperature and power supply.
Serial Communication
The solution needed the capability to facilitate data exchange and coordinate inter-machine communication
Putting it all Together

The SRG-IMX8P’s dual LAN ports received serial data from two fieldbus devices using Modbus Transmission Control Protocol. One of these devices supported up to 50 IO nodes for sensors across the facility. The other device was dedicated to executing instructions based on the company’s proprietary software, serving functions equivalent to ERP, WMS, WCS, and MES software. The SRG-IMX8P's additional support for CANBus and RS-232/422/485 played a crucial role in facilitating communication protocols, enabling the relay of control and task-execution instructions to factory machinery.

Robust i.MX 8M Plus Multi-Die Processor Platform
The SRG-IMX8P’s robust Quad-Arm® Cortex®-A53 processor and NPU provided the application with significant processing power, more than capable of managing incoming data through both Ethernet/IP and OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA).
Rugged, Industrial-Strength
The SRG-IMX8P’s wide -20°C to 70°C operating temperature and 9V to 36V power input range ensured that the system could operate reliably, even in the face of extreme variations. Its fanless design also made it immune to contaminants such as dust, enhancing its longevity.
Multifaceted, Broad-Spectrum Connectivity
The SRG-IMX8P’s dual LAN ports, CANBus and RS-232/422/485 support, and HDMI output provided all of the interfaces necessary to receive serial data and communicate with factory machinery for efficient task-execution.
Project Success

As a result of the SRG-IMX8P’s integration with the company’s specialized software, the company was able to install their industrial automation system to automate a large product packaging facility’s operation. The pairing of the SRG-IMX8P with the company’s own IPC allowed for the installation, configuration, maintenance, and simultaneous operation of multiple variations of the company’s proprietary software. This ensured continuous production across multiple packaging assembly lines.
