Flexible Communications & Power Connectivity
The Serious Communications Module 318 (SCM318) is a new family of industrial-grade, long life supply off-the-shelf hardware modules designed to be the communications and control hub in OEM industrial machines as well as commercial and medical products. With extensive pre-licensed firmware supported by Serious technology onboarding programs, OEM design teams can quickly and easily get their products connected to Industrial, IT and IoT networks, as well as potentially even replace hundreds of dollars in custom machine control electronics. The SCM318 can be used stand-alone in an OEM product or, optionally, can complement the next generation of Serious Integrated HMI Modules (SIMs) for connectivity as well as modern graphic/touch interactivity at the device.
The SCM318 hardware has an extensive list of I/O including Ethernet, WiFi, Bluetooth 5 with Bluetooth Thread and NFC™-A tag support, RS422/485 and CAN connectivity. The heart of the SCM318 is a Renesas 400MHz ARM Cortex-A9 MCU for system control and data/protocol handling. The board can be powered by most existing OEM product 10.8-30VDC supplies. The pre-licensed, pre-ported, and fully supported firmware includes a full Segger OS, File System, USB and TCP/IP stacks with SSL/TLS and cryptography, as well as numerous utilities and firmware framework elements from Serious.
