The NB1600 Industrial Routers are basically designed for stationary applications, mostly mounted on DIN rail shelves. The routers provide multi WAN-LAN-communication and are suitable for a wide range of implementations such as remote management and condition monitoring, CCTV, ATMs and also Digital Signage.
By fulfilling the DIN EN 61000-6-2 and DIN EN 60950-1 norms, the devices of the NB1600 series are suitable for use in the industrial field. They have a high interference immunity and security standard and are designed for the temperature range from -25 °C to +70 °C. With their integrated mounting clip, the devices can be quickly installed on a DIN rail.
For wireless Internet access, the NB1600 routers can be equipped with LTE or UMTS modules. The modules also support GSM and select the best available service automatically. With a WLAN module, the devices can act as an access point or client with Standard IEEE 802.11abgn.
The NB1600 routers come with two Ethernet ports, which can individually be configured as a WAN port or a LAN port to form a switch or to separate to networks.
In addition, the routers are equipped with two isolated binary inputs and two relay outputs for direct connection of sensors and actuators. The provided USB port enables fast configuration and firmware updates from memory stick, but can also be configured as a device server. This also applies for the RS-232 serial interface, which can in addition be used as a system console.
The software update process of the router is fail-safe. When issuing an update, the current configuration will be backed up and reapplied after the update. Any other modifications to the file system will be erased. The NB1600 routers support major VPN technologies such as IPsec and OpenVPN. Both, server and client mode are possible. Simple handling of a Public key infrastructure makes is easy to connect two NB1600 via trough a VPN tunnel. Other features are DHCP server, DNS proxy server, DynDNS agent, SNMP agent, Telnet/SSH server, web client and e-mail client.
The SDK allows users programing the NB1600 using a simple script and implementing all kind of applications. Preprocessing can be done directly on the router, thus saving an additional IPC. Digital I/Os can be configured by local or remote devices. Based on input port state changes, applications can be informed and e.g. an SMS is sent to a group of numbers.
