Telematics Gateways

Owasys IoT Gateways

We have the right IoT gateway for your telematics application

A truly open, Linux-based IoT gateway, perfectly suited for any off-highway application such as construction machinery, agricultural machinery, special vehicles but also for on-highway applications such as trucks, buses or electric vehicles? In addition, extremely robust, of the highest quality, available for the long term, individually configurable from a quantity of one and still proven in the market in 6-digit quantities? If this sounds too good to be true for you, you should read on and learn more about our Owasys IoT gateways.

The Owasys technology

Admittedly, the topic of telematics/telemetry is anything but new, and there are now seemingly thousands of providers on the market. However, if you are looking for freely programmable hardware based on Linux that is not tied to the service of a specific provider, the choice becomes much narrower. If you then also attach importance to the highest industrial quality and long-term availability, the air becomes very thin and the manufacturer Owasys, with more than 17 years of experience in the production of such telematics gateways, crystallizes out. In fact, we still have customers today who have been using Owasys devices since 2003 and still swear by them today. In some cases, devices from these first years are even still functionally in use. Of course, this does not mean that the devices today are at the same technical level as in 2003. The third generation is now on the market and represents state-of-the-art technology:

Iot Gateway owa5x

The owa5x

The new open quad-core Linux IoT gateway from Owasys is the most powerful generation of Owasys gateways. It is the consistent further development of the owa4x unit. The owa5x is predestined for the most demanding edge computing solutions in off-highway environments and leaves nothing to be desired.

With its powerful processor, large memory, security features and multiple interfaces in a robust IP67 housing, it meets all the requirements of a modern IoT telematics gateway. The standard Debian distribution gives you full flexibility. You can use all Debian repositories and develop in C, C++, Java or Python, among others. Regardless of whether you want to develop yourself or commission us to do so, you remain free to choose your software at all times and are not subject to any system constraints.

The owa5X is a compact on-board unit that enables use even in harsh environments and at extreme temperatures. The unit is available exclusively in a robust plastic housing that can withstand harsh conditions. The box is insensitive to dust and vibration resistant. This makes owa5X suitable for use in road construction, hazardous goods transport and conveyor or industrial plants.

The products of the owa5X family are designed for all telematics applications such as fleet management, electric vehicles, track & trace, logistics, predictive maintenance and operational data collection of moving objects and asset management. Whenever edge computing functions are required in the context of digitalization and Industry 4.0, the owa5x is the suitable product.

The Owasys API

The Owasys API abstracts the application layer from the actual hardware, making you independent of any necessary hardware changes, e.g. due to discontinued components.
