DinBox GSM M4 modem - The workhorse of substation 3G communication!
The DinBox GSM M4 modem adds new features to the well known Bausch industrial modems: the integration of an Ethernet interface - additional to the classical serial (RS-232/485) interfacing -, an enclosure for M36 DIN-rail mounting and a IEC 60870-5-104 slave / Modbus mapping for SCADA use!
The InduBox GSM M4 builds on the robustness and component quality which are so characteristic to the InduBox modem family. The modem has the same key characteristics: a quality AC power supply, a watchdog reset, galvanic isolation of the ports and extensive testing and certification. The modem opens a complete new market application, the usage of the modem as a basic router next to the standard serial (RS-232/485) interfacing. This results in a top quality modem with an impressive history (approx. 60.000 modems in the field of utilities) and an additional application as a cost-effective basic router. Also this modem can be used as a micro-RTU for IEC 60870-5-104 & Modbus applications! This makes the DinBox GSM M4 the ideal workhorse for all your communication applications!

The IEC 60870-5-104 slave / Modbus mapping converts the data from Modbus devices to IEC 60870-5-104 and sends to the SCADA IEC 60870-5-104 Master. (Q32016). Basic features such as remote firmware upgrade (Q1 2017), DHCP (Q2 2017), static routing, gateway setting etc are included. The modem will be programmable through a webserver interface (Q2 2017). The modem is available with an external AC or internal DC power supply, 1 DI/DO, different communication modules (GPRS, 3G, CDMA 450 MHz, LTE, 169 MHz ...), RS-485, RS-232 and standard antenna included (GSM). also TLS security and FoTa (firmware over the Air) will be available as from Q2 2017.
