Multifunctional GPRS DINrail modem: DinBox GPRS SL
The DinBox GPRS SL modem is a serial V.24 RS-232/RS485 2/4 wire modem in a DINrail housing. The modem is DC powered and can be equipped with several metering and/or SCADA protocols (optional). CSD GSM data, GPRS IP socket server & client modes are possible. The modem is an ideal solution for RS-232/485 interfacing to PLC, metering devices, power quality measurement equipment and others.

The DinBox GPRS SL modem is a compact (22.5/75.0/107.5 mm) serial V.24 RS-232/RS485 modem in a DINrail housing. Many applications on demand can be integrated in OpenAT in the Sierra Wireless SL6087 GPRS module. Several GSM & GPRS communication scenario's are possible. Also, the integrated IEC 60870-5-104 slave protocol and Modbus mapping offer an ideal solution to connect to PLC's, metering devices and power quality measurement equipment over RS-232/485. 

1. Transparent communication: traditional 'CSD data' modem

The modem is serially connected to a meter, PLC or power quality equipment and can be configured in ‘CSD data mode'. This means you can communicate over GSM using 'CSD data' to reach your device or central management.

3. The Praxis Modem Management System

The DinBox GSM SL modem infrastructure in the field can be managed by the Praxis Modem Management System which allows you to group modems by operator, Baud speed, RSSI signal and change from CSD data to GPRS and vice versa.

4. IEC 60870-5-104 slave functionality over GPRS and Modbus 'mapping'.

The IEC 60870-5-104 MASTER SCADA system communicates with the DinBox GSM SL over GPRS. Modbus 'mapping' over RS232 or RS485 ensures data retrieval from the (power quality) meter, PLC or other industrial device. In this way the DinBox GSM SL is a very elegant solution to upgrade all your equipment in the field to the IEC 60870-5-104 protocol.
