ProSoft Technology industrial cellular gatewayThe Industrial Cellular Gateway provides secure wireless Ethernet and serial connectivity to your assets over 3G cellular service, including PLCs, RTUs, DCS, instruments, electronic billboards, and communication towers. The gateways have integrated IPSec VPN and Open VPN capabilities, with remote devices accessed using secure VPN tunnels over Internet connections. The gateway can communicate with EtherNet/IP-enabled controllers, allowing you to monitor signal strength, data usage and more. This enables your PLC/PAC system to warn you of pending problems. Your PLC/PAC can send or receive texts so you can remotely monitor alarm information and respond. This gives users peace of mind and can improve their productivity. The gateway's Integrated GPS allows for location-based monitoring. The gateway supports cellular networks, including 3G GSM, WCDMA, ED-VO, and HSPA+.
