Rugged cellular router offers Broadband wireless connectivity


DistribuTECH 2015, Booth 1923

• Integrated LTE Modem with rollback to 2G and 3G networks for reliability
• Dual SIM card slot for service provider redundancy and automatic failover
• Rugged design for demanding environments like Utilities, Transportation and Oil & Gas

Siemens Ruggedcom RX1400 is a multiprotocol intelligent node which combines Ethernet switching, routing and firewall functionality with various WAN connectivity options. The device is IP40 rated, does not use fans for cooling, operates continuously within a -40° C to +85° C temperature range and comes with a rugged metal housing that supports DIN rail, panel, or rack mounting.

The Ruggedcom RX1400 provides a high level of immunity to electromagnetic interference, heavy electrical surges, extreme temperature and humidity for reliable operation in harsh environments. The integrated GNSS (GPS/GLONASS) functionality allows the device to report its location as necessary for asset tracking purposes in large scale deployments.

The Ruggedcom RX1400 is designed to support primary communications over commercial LTE networks and leverage LTE's enhanced capabilities for QoS (Quality of Service) management. For reliability purposes the device is able to rollback to 2G and 3G wireless connectivity.

In addition the cellular router is equipped with a Dual SIM card slot which enables automatic failover in case of interruption in the communication. The device can also be used with two optional small form factor pluggable fiber optic transceivers (SFPs), to establish wireline communication in areas where fiber is available.

The Ruggedcom RX1400 offers a cost saving solution for large scale deployments. Its compact form factor allows installation in existing cabinets, while advanced cyber security features make it ideally suitable for mission-critical applications, where high reliability and secure communications is of paramount importance, i.e. utility substations, traffic control cabinets, railway applications, oil and gas and other harsh environment situations.

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
