The impFactory™ is Electric Imp’s recommended BlinkUp™ fixture. This off-the-shelf appliance allows your assembly line to prepare Devices Under Test (DUTs) to load and run their factory firmware. It does this by sending a factory enrollment token and, if required, factory WiFi credentials to each DUT’s on-board imp. This data is transmitted optically via an LED connected to the impFactory.
The impFactory is a great option for all imp-enabled products going to manufacturing because it can be purchased directly and includes many useful features:
The new impFactory 2 adds these features:
To set up an impFactory, use the Electric Imp mobile app to add the fixture to your Electric Imp account. Within impCentral™, Electric Imp’s online development and production management tool, you assign the impFactory to a Test Fixture Device Group or to a Fixture Device Group. Whichever of these groups you assign the impFactory to, you will deploy your fixture firmware to the same group.
