Courtesy: SignalFireSignalFire’s Modbus DIN Mount Gateway combines a radio with gateway electronics in a compact module with external SMA antenna connections for installation flexibility in remote monitoring applications. The SignalFire DIN Mount Gateway is housed in a 1-in. wide moudle and operates over a range of three miles and stores the most recent readings of all nodes in the network in Modbus format. An RP SMA connector is provided to connect to an external antenna that can be configured via an RS232 DB9 connector. Modbus RTU (RS485) and TCP (with Ethernet module) are used for remote asset data monitoring and control. The DIN Mount Gateway contains an ARM processor capable of holding all remote data registers as well as providing outbound control of the remote assets via the SignalFire wireless mesh network.
