27 May 2020


Faced with the necessity of offering adaptable solutions to a big number of applications, PickData presents eManager, the new product range of programmable modular controllers for IoT projects.

eManager is an OEM industrial controller which is equipped with a high-performance control unit with a Linux Yocto embedded and Node-RED software integrated. The device includes RS-232/485 serial communications, an Ethernet 10/100 port and Wi-Fi communications. Two versions, eManager and eManager Pro, with different options of CPU clock, flash storage or RAM memory. Both models can be expanded with a large list of expansion modules.

Below you will see the features of each version:

Hardware efficiency

Nowadays, most of the solutions require more than one device to tackle all the application’s needs. For example, it is commonly seen to have a digital input/output hub, a PLC with Modbus RTU/TCP communications, a Raspberry Pi running the app and storing data, and a router with mobile communications to send data to the cloud. Nevertheless, eManager allows you to simplify all these needs in a single device and application.

eManager is not only equipped with great processing capacity, data storage and industrial communications. eManager has a big expansion modules' catalogue that can maximize your device performance, but these modules are not designed to be mounted out of the factory. We will always deliver finished products, so it is an option of the device definition to include or not this expansion modules as a part of your eManager.

Below you will find the expansion modules list:

  • GSM/GPRS communications
  • 10 Digital inputs
  • 8 Signal relays NO/NC
  • 7 Analogue inputs and 2 Power relays
  • Three phase energy meter
  • 5 Digital inputs and 2 Power relays
  • 12 Analogue inputs
  • Supercapacitor
  • 9-36 DC Power supply
  • LoRa communications (on development)

Software designed to make things easy

If we take a closer look to the software, eManager is equipped with a software platform designed for easily developing industrial and edge computing applications.

With eManager you can smoothly develop your application with our multilanguage API which include the most popular programming language for IoT applications (C, C++, Python, Go, Java...).

In addition, eManager fully integrates Node-RED which includes protocols such as Modbus, BACNET, MQTT, OPC-UA, together with easy communication with platforms like Amazon WBS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud and more.

An industrial, simple and strong solution that will allow you to stop adapting to existing solutions and move forward to having the product that you really need.
