Remoting Monitoring and Control with a ModBus DIN Mount Gateway
Hudson, MA, January 4, 2016 – SignalFire Wireless Telemetry now offers a Modbus DIN Mount Gateway that combines a high power SignalFire radio with gateway electronics in a compact DIN mounted module with external SMA antenna connections for installation flexibility in remote monitoring applications.
SignalFire’s Remote Sensing Systems consist of a gateway and nodes that connect to remote assets and extract data from or send control data to those devices through other nodes and/or the gateway. The SignalFire Gateway serves as a two-way interface, connecting asset managers to a remote mesh network of assets using industry-standard Modbus protocol. All sensor data is stored in Modbus format.
The DIN Mount Gateway is designed for users that want to use their own antenna or do not need the mounting flexibility typically offered in the standard Gateway-in-a-Stick configuration. Housed in a narrow (~1 inch) wide module, the SignalFire DIN Mount Gateway operates over long ranges (+3 miles), storing 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.
