With the further evolution of the 'Smart Grid', electricity companies need to collect more and more data from their grid. Often this means extra budgets next to their infrastructure for meter reading. Therefor Bausch Datacom designed a LTE Cat. 1 - LTE M1 - 3G - GPRS modem that can be used for both this needs. The device can be used either as a transparant modem for RS-485 interfaced meters, as a router for Ethernet interface meters or as a RTU for Modbus RTU/Modbus TCP to IEC 60870-5-104 SCADA converter.
The InduBox GSM M4 builds further upon the ruggedized InduBox family that already since 2003 proves its quality and functionality robustness. Out of the important installed base of InduBox Modems, Bausch Datacom now wants to be spearhead in the new communication trend where there will be ever more interlap between smart metering and electricity grid monitoring. It also fully endorses the need for cost effective products in order to finance much larger infrastructures than in the last decades.
The InduBox GSM M4 modem offers 6 communication possibilities:
1) CSD (Circuit Switched Data) or GSM data
2) Socket Server (Packet switched Data)
3) Socket Client (Packet switched Data)
4) Routing Mode
5) RTU SCADA Mode
