DinBox GSM SL

DinBox GSM SL

GSM GPRS Modem
The DinBox GPRS SL modem is a serial V.24 RS-232/RS485 modem in a DINrail housing. The modem is DC powered, 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.
Bausch Datacom specializes in integrating applications, protocols and TCP/IP protocol stack in its modems. At the heart of the DinBox GPRS SL modem, the SL6087 Sierra GPRS Wireless module supports a powerful software development environment - OpenAT -, which allows embedded ANSI C applications to be executed directly on the Wireless CPU. This means that Bausch Datacom can integrate tailor made applications or communication protocols on the customers demand. Basically, the modem firmware allows the modem to be connected by RS-232 and/or RS-485 (2/4 wire) to 2 or more non-IP enabled (electricity) meters and to communicate by IP number and port number using GPRS. That way, transparent communication with the host system can be maintained.

Additional Info

Bausch Datacom specializes in integrating applications, protocols and TCP/IP protocol stack in its modems. At the heart of the DinBox GPRS SL modem, the SL6087 Sierra GPRS Wireless module supports a powerful software development environment - Open AT -, which allows embedded ANSI C applications to be executed directly on the Wireless CPU. This means that Bausch Datacom can integrate tailor made applications or communication protocols on the customer's demand, a very powerful tool! Protocols such as IEC 60870-5-104, DLMS COSEM, Modbus or others can thus be implemented in the modem.
Basically the modem firmware allows the modem to be connected by RS-232 and/or RS-485 to 2 or more non-IP enabled (electricity) meters and to communicate however by IP number and port number using GPRS. In this way a transparent communication with the host system can be maintained!
