NetModule wins Red Dot Award: Product Design 2019

NG800 Automotive IoT platform convinces jury

The new connectivity platform NG800 from NetModule not only enables stable digital communication via various wireless technologies to the Internet and flexible use, but it is also exceptionally beautiful. The jury of the renowned Red Dot Awards awarded the IoT Gateway the coveted Red Dot Award: Product Design 2019 for design and construction.

The Red Dot jury was impressed by the excellent design quality of the NG800 Automotive IoT platform from NetModule, which connects a vehicle to a wireless network. It enables the necessary stable communication between on-board vehicle equipment and cloud applications. It differs both technically and visually from the previously known devices of its kind in that it meets ecological and aesthetic requirements: The eye-catching ribs of the multifunctional IoT gateway are the most important design element. With these reinforcements, the necessary contact pressure of the seal between the housing cover and base can be created using only six screws. Depending on the type of seal, this allows device protection classes between IP54 and IP65 to be achieved. The clear edges of the compact IoT gateway support the statement that it meets both high-tech requirements and use in harsh environments. With the innovative and modular housing concept of the NG800, NetModule creates the basis for a high degree of flexibility that enables a wide variety of product variants, even in small production runs.
Jürgen Kern, CEO of NetModule AG: "The Red Dot Award is a remarkable success for NetModule. We see this as confirmation of our innovative strength and our future-oriented product strategy".

On 8 July 2019, the winners received their certificate at the Red Dot Gala in Essen, and the NG800 Automotive IoT Platform will be on display at the "Design on Stage" exhibition at the Red Dot Design Museum Essen, which will present all the award-winning products. In addition, the NG800 has been included in the Red Dot Design Yearbook, online and in the Red Dot Design App since that day.

With over 18,000 submissions, the Red Dot Award is one of the largest design competitions in the world. The internationally established seal of quality is awarded annually in 48 categories and is regarded by industry as an award for good and innovative product design. In 2019, designers and companies from 55 countries submitted more than 5500 products to the competition. A committee of experts from various specialist fields examines these products in detail according to criteria such as formal quality, degree of innovation, functionality, product periphery and ecological compatibility.
