eCOUNT embedded signs ED2 as ANZ distribution partner

eCOUNT embedded, a German manufacturer of cloud-connected embedded computing building blocks, has signed an official distribution partnership with ED2 Embedded Design and Distribution. Under the terms of the agreement, ED2 will sell eCOUNT embedded’s flat-panel controllers, ultralow power computer-on-modules and RFID reader platforms in Australia and New Zealand.

The partnership enables ED2 to strategically widen its extensive portfolio of embedded computer technologies to include cloud-connected embedded computing building blocks, offering application-ready remote monitoring, management and maintenance of systems via clouds — functions that will become increasingly important for distributed IIoT and Industry 4.0 devices. The cloud connectivity of the embedded computing building blocks is believed to open up new market segments and project-related synergy effects for both companies, with joint projects, design-in activities and regular training sessions set to intensify cooperation on an ongoing basis.

“We need the support of strong local distributors and value-adding resellers to expand and strengthen the global sales of our new flat-panel controller and RFID reader solutions with cloud connectivity,” said Gerhard Sahler, Managing Partner and CEO of eCOUNT embedded. “We are happy to have found a strong distribution partner for Australia and New Zealand with the ED2 Embedded Design and Distribution experts.”

“eCOUNT embedded has a long history in the embedded technology sector as an innovative developer of intelligent display controllers, RFID systems and other embedded solutions,” added ED2 CEO Allan Tomlinson. “The new cloud-connected platforms offer even more value for customers.

“ED2 is proud to represent eCOUNT embedded as a sales partner in Australia and New Zealand as the synergies created with our partnership will assist development of cloud-connected solutions that are backed by German ingenuity and quality.”
