Configuration options include automating firmware update to reconfigure multiple routers simultaneously through a secure and easily used Web interface or powerful scripting engine. The device's rugged metal casing has a wide operating range (-30 to 60°C, while DIN-Rail mounts provide for connectivity in both harsh and remote environments.
Designed for enterprise and industrial M2M systems, the router is offered in a flexible, modular format with seven possible configurations. A standard configuration includes one 10/100 Ethernet port, one USB host port, a binary I/O port and dual SIM card holders. Two expansion ports are also available. A Modbus TCP/IP option to Modbus RTU allows cellular connectivity to Modbus slave devices using the router's RS-486 port.
A powerful scripting engine enables router decisions based on user-identified conditions. Users may also create four different profiles/configurations in one router to switch between operating profiles, either remotely through R-SeeNet, the local Web interface, SMS or automatically through its on-board I/O.
The SPECTRE 3G supports a wide variety of VPN protocols including IPSec, OpenVPN and GRE Tunneling. It also supports DHCP, NAT, NAT-T, SMTP, DynDNS, NTP, VRRP, HTTPS, SSH, OSPF, RIP, BGP control by SMS and more. Priced from $449 to $649 MSRP, contact B&B Electronics for availability.
