Localization and remote maintenance of mobile machines: MLR cellular routers from INSYS icom with GPS functionality

Cellular router from INSYS icom with GPS technology

INSYS icom adds a number of features to its well-established MLR series of highspeed cellular routers.
A new GPS functionality, for instance, enables the continuous localization of mobile machines such as large emergency generators or construction equipment. It facilitates route management, route monitoring, and location detection, an advantage especially for leased equipment.
The cellular routers enable remote access to mobile machines and vehicles, allowing users for instance to perform updates and maintenance services or to change parameters. Additionally, the units can send alarms in case of failure. Furthermore, thanks to an integrated Linux platform (sandbox), individual application programs can be stored – for example route plans which react to deviations by sending an alarm, or a script that generates a Google Maps link based on the position data.

The industrial grade mobile LAN routers combine the functions of a mobile radio modem, a router, and a switch in one unit. They connect remote Ethernet LANs or individual components with the internet via the mobile communication services GPRS and UMTS. The bandwidths are similar to DSL: the devices support the UMTS/HSPA data transmission protocol which provides transmission rates of more than 1 Mbit/s during upload and download.

Now optionally available for the GSM-Railway wireless communication network, MLR routers are also suitable for traffic engineering applications. Up to four devices or controllers can be directly connected via RJ45 ports. The routers feature an additional serial interface. The housing dimensions are 33 x 155 x 120 mm.
