  • Hardware engineers
  • Strategic technologists, application designers and architects
  • Developers new to IoT
  • Trainers introducing others to connected products
  • Systems integrators


One major building automation vendor cut 12 weeks from its prototype schedule and many months engineering time to move to deliver and field test their IoT-connected products.


impAccelerator Solution Kits

The impAccelerator Solution Kits expedite the development of complex, secure IoT cloud and edge applications and devices.

    Fieldbus Gateway
    impAccelerator: Fieldbus Gateway — Designed for HVAC control and monitoring, predictive maintenance, lighting controls, factory automation and other industrial control systems, the Fieldbus Gateway delivers a securely programmable endpoint that can interact with multiple field buses, including Modbus-RTU, Modbus-TCP, BACnet, and more. Powered by power over ethernet (PoE) or 24V AC/DC, it can communicate over Ethernet or dual-band WiFi, and can be easily expanded with its MikroBUS socket and USB host port.
    Wireless Communications Gateway

    XBee and LoRa modules not included

    impAccelerator: Wireless Communications Gateway — Improve security and dramatically lower both initial and maintenance costs with this flexible alternative to Linux wireless gateways. Capable of supporting multiple wireless networks including ZigBee®, ZWave, LoRA™, sub-GHz radios and more.
    Battery Powered Sensor Node
    impAccelerator: Battery Powered Sensor Node — Secure environmental monitoring with four built-in sensors for applications such as commercial refrigeration, stores or transport. Also supports 1-Wire® devices. Can be powered for years by two AA batteries.


    Electric Imp Breakout Boards

    imp003 Breakout Board

    imp003 Breakout Board

    Electric Imp Breakout Boards are the next step in IoT product development and innovation. Available for each module in the imp family, the Breakout Boards provide power to the module, include all necessary external components and antennas, and expose the available interfaces on the module, allowing for quick prototyping and characterization in real-world device, cloud and mobile applications. Three versions are currently available based on modules from Murata, including the imp003, imp004m and imp005. Learn more about each breakout board here.

    impExplorer Kit

    impExplorer Kit

    The impExplorer Kit help software developers learn about — or train others — how to connect to the IoT using the imp platform without needing to break out a breadboard. Collecting environmental data, including temperature, humidity, air pressure and motion, is simplified and the gathered data securely sent to a wide range of off-the-shelf cloud service integrations. An RGB LED is provided for feedback, and Grove connectors connectors are included for solderless expansion. Order now from our store.
