Connect your IoT devices

Get any device, IPC, or legacy machine ready for IoT

industrial devices

We support any industrial PC

The IoT & AI development studio works with Docker-capable devices to enable IoT on a range of machines and legacy equipment. Below is a selection of devices you can connect to the studio. However, you can connect any IPC.


Machines in the manufacturing environment often speak different languages in terms of data technology. With the SIMATIC IPC127E industrial gateway, you can still integrate them into your data network. In this way, you create an important basis for end-to-end digitization.


Another PC hardware platform that covers a wide spectrum of industrial applications.


The perfect blend of reliability and versatility in a compact package featuring dual or quad-core processing, support for two full-height mini-PCIe slots, one mSATA, and options for multi-CEC functionality and Coral.

Another device for AI app developers, the Jetson Xavier NX module for AI edge devices comes with cloud-native support. You can develop and test AI apps intended for rollout at the IoT edge.


This device is suitable for creators and embedded developers working on artificial intelligence apps. You can run several neural networks in parallel for a range of applications, train and deploy in any setting.

DIN-Rail PC Arrakis pico Mk3

Fanless and compact DIN-Rail PC with an operating temperature from -20 to +60 °C. Provided with an Intel Atom CPU with 4 Cores (Apollo Lake) and 8 GB of RAM. Integrated TPM 2.0 Module and LTE Cat. 4G and 5G support optional.

These ultra-compact IPCs are so robust you can use them for any industrial use case in an array of industrial settings close to the machinery (robots, CNC). 

These robust industrial PCs will serve you in a variety of IIoT applications.

We could use this tiny Raspberry Pi for various use cases but think it is especially good for home IoT projects and any sort of tinkering. 

We use this classic as an R&D device, for getting started on a pilot project, for an initial PoC, or as a development device for your IoT apps. It comes with enormous community support.

Need support connecting new devices?

Flash multiple devices at once

At Record Evolution, we want to make the flashing process as simple as possible, universally available, and operating on any platform. So we developed a custom tool that radically simplifies that process. The Record Evolution Reflasher is a cross-platform desktop application that helps you create bootable configured flash drives ready to use on any device. 

To connect devices and get started on your IoT project, all you need is an internet connection and a Docker-capable device.


Lightweight operating system for IoT devices

ReswarmOS is our customizable operating system for embedded IoT devices specifically designed in-house to meet the requirements of our IoT development studio. ReswarmOS is a configurable and lightweight Linux-based OS that can run on very small devices with low resource consumption, fast flashing and quick startup times. A lightweight custom agent controls all IoT apps and Docker containers.

And since our focus is security, you benefit from an industry-standard authentication method between the development studio and the IoT device. Each device receives an individual username & password on the basis of the configuration file so that it cannot be tampered with locally.

Why a Custom OS?

Case studies

You connect IoT devices using any communication protocol and your local wireless network. And then you get to the truly creative part of IoT development. Record Evolution is not simply an IoT studio for connectivity and device management but also a place to gather and analyze device data, develop your own IoT products, build edge computing cases that extend all the way to the cloud, orchestrate IoT deployment scenarios, or even create your own IoT application ecoystem. Starting with just one connected device, you build the foundation for new IoT technology.
