The new Intelligent Cellular solutions are designed to provide wide area wireless connectivity for industrial devices.
Intelligent Cellular Gateways utilize the existing cellular infrastructure to connect devices across geographically diverse locations. The RadioLinx Intelligent Cellular Gateways can also be used to connect devices through the Internet to one or more locations. Intelligent Cellular solutions combine robust industrial cellular technology, industrial protocol templates, and ALEOSTM software for persistent connection management. This software enables real-time device status and health information including network connectivity, throughput and signal strength. Another one, the ACEmanagerTM utility enables local or over-the-air device configuration and diagnostics. Integration is made easy with downloadable configuration templates that support various industrial protocols like DF1 and Modbus, and can be customized to support others.
The Intelligent Cellular solutions offer a compact form factor, low power consumption, DIN-rail mount and a rugged design which supports industrial operating temperatures and Class I Div 2 hazardous location certification.
Intelligent Cellular solutions are suited for industrial automation applications such as remote equipment monitoring, management and control, OEM equipment monitoring, M2M applications, and non-time-critical control for municipal water/wastewater, power, and oil/gas SCADA.
Versions are available for the following cellular networks:
Serial Modem for Global GPRS/GSM (RLXIC-SG).
The RLXIC-SG Serial Modem is dedicated to applications requiring serial connectivity on cellular carriers that use GSM (Global ystem for Mobile Communications) to provide service. GSM is also the predominant cellular technology in most parts of the world.
Ethernet Gateway for HSUPA (3G GSM) Networks (RLXIC-EH).
The RLXIC-EH Ethernet Gateway is dedicated to applications requiring Ethernet connectivity on cellular carriers that use GSM to provide service.
