The IoTOctopusTM serves as a high-end industrial IoT node capable of high accuracy and a high sampling rate of electro-mechanical equipment. With its simultaneous 8-channels, 24-bit, 30 KHz sample rate the IoTOctopusTM can provide connectivity from the electrical grid to the drilling pump and from the hydro-electro turbine to the industrial air conditioner. The IoTOctopusTM converts analog signals to digital data, rearranges data, analyzes data, stores data and can transmit data to gateways/local servers/cloud servers. With dual-core ARM® Cortex A9 and 110K LE FPGA, the IoTOctopusTM processing power can do complex computing and data analysis in real time.
