E Series Evaluation Kit (Global)

The E Series Evaluation Kit is the best way to get started with the E Series, Particle’s newest product family of industrialized cellular IoT modules. The Evaluation Kit includes an E Series Evaluation Board with 2G/3G global connectivity, a sample IoT sensor (temperature), and all the cellular accessories you need to build your first industrial-grade proof-of-concept on the Particle platform.

Excited to build your first prototypes with E Series modules? Add three spare E310 modules (2G/3G connectivity with global support) to your E Series Evaluation kit using the dropdown above.

E Series Product Features

Particle’s E Series is a new family of production-grade 2G, 3G, and LTE-enabled hardware that vastly reduces the cost and complexity of deploying cellular-connected IoT solutions at scale.

All E Series modules include the following features:

      - Embedded SIM card, which resists vibration, corrosion, and mechanical failure  
      - Surface-mountable design, for PCB assembly in mass-production
      - Industrial temperature range from -20 to 85C for deployment in hostile environments
      - Future-compatible pinout with support for 2G and 3G today and a seamless transition to LTE M1 and NB1 in 2018
      - Fully certified design virtually eliminating the cost and complexity of RF and carrier compliance
      - Built-in compatibility with Particle's development tools, messaging platform, and device management console

E Series Evaluation Board Features

The E Series Evaluation Kit contains a breakout board which provides easy access to all the pins and peripherals available on all E Series module variants. The Evaluation Board includes:

      - Physical USB access for flashing and serial communications
      - Li-Po battery connector for connecting external batteries
      - Power barrel jack connector for external power
      - MODE and RESET buttons
      - Charge and status LEDs to appreciate device state at a glance

The E Series Evaluation board contains a soldered E310 module, which supports worldwide 2G and 3G connectivity and can be configured into a 2G only mode. All E Series variants will come in mass production quantities and will be available for purchase through our Wholesale Store in late October.
