SKU: M2M PRO 4 Category:

Designed specifically for industrial use, the PRO4 router offers reliable, secure high-speed wireless connectivity and remote access. It enables the integration of various applications such as distribution automation, smart metering or the integration of Distributed Energy Resources (DER).

It comes with all the interfaces, protocols and management functions desirable in the world of industrial automation and smart grids. It is the preferred choice for mission-critical cellular communications of many large energy companies and IoT system integrators. 

The PRO4 has a modular design, meaning that there are options for expansions. By default it has 1 SIM card slot, 4 Ethernet ports, RS232/RS485 interface (RJ12), a microSD card slot and a uUSB port for configuration and OTG functions. The open-source, Linux-based operating system OpenWrt (optionally Debian) allows users to run their own applications on the platform. The open-source OS also guarantees that our clients will not depend on us in developing custom apps for their device. It comes in a IP51 housing, supports DIN-rail, and the ports can be protected under sealable terminal cover. 

Supports the most important industrial and network protocols like TCP/IP, Modbus TCP, Modbus RTU, Modbus Gateway, MQTT*, LwM2M  etc. 

We also offer customization (protocols, interfaces, modules etc.) for our clients. More than 100.000 units have been sold around the world. 

The M2M ROUTER PRO4 has full remote access, monitoring and maintenance features.

This device can be managed by our Device Manager® application, which provides continuous central management, QoS monitoring, mass configuration and firmware updates.

 

 

Thanks to our Automatic Modbus Data Acquirer System (application developed for Modbus data collection) this router can also be used as a data concentrator.

The 4G LTE router is currently our most popular product!
