Industrial ADSL LTE 4G 3G Router – 6402 Overview
The 6402 Industrial ADSL LTE 4G Router is a DIN Rail mounted Router with MODBUS support an RS232 / 485 port, Wi-Fi and dry relay contacts. Furthermore with its dual 3G/4G SIMS the 6402 has the ability to fall back or top up bandwidth using a cellular network. In addition the built in Wi-Fi allows wireless clients to connect securely using Wireless Encryption standards.
Intelligent use of available Cellular Networks
Dual SIMS allow the 6402 to operate over an LTE / 4G/3G/2G network. Because the 6402 has dual SIMS it can switch between network operators, or can be set to only use one network or the other. Finally the 6402 can load balance between the cellular and terrestrial networks or route traffic according by application.
There are two modes for operating the cellular network.
- Always on - The 6402 connects to the network and keeps the link alive but no data is sent until it is required to be sent. This mode means we have seem less failover with no delays
- On Demand - The 6402 does not make a connection until it has data ti to send over the cellular network. This mode take a little longer to connect as the dial in connection has to be established.
802.11n 2T2R MIMO 300Mbps (2.4Ghz / 5Ghz) Wi-Fi is provided within the 6402 supporting Wireless Clients using multi SSID WPS WMM with security provided by WEP, WPA, WPA2, WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK and 802.1x.
IP Sec and GRE Tunnelling
When operating over the Internet security is vital. The 6402 provides IP Sec with the options of several encryption algorithms, up to AES 256 encryption. Where we are unable to use a fixed IP Address the 6402 supports FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name Server)
In addition GRE (General Routing Encapsulation) is also supported allowing transparent transport of 3rd party devices over the network.
Furthermore when using IP Sec its possible to have two tunnels established, a main and failover tunnel. In the event the main tunnel fails the failover will re-establish a connection to a second backup device.
Both Port and Tagged based VLANS are supported on the 6402 allowing security between devices on the router.
RS232 / 485 Serial Ports
An RS232 / 485 Serial port allows for legacy devices to be transported over ADSL or the cellular network and to support MODBUS devices. Therefore its possible to allow an RS485/232 MODBUS Device to talk to a TCP/IP MODBUS Device through the 6402.
The 6402 has the ability to operate as a MODBUS Slave allowing a MODBUS Master to retrieve network status messages from the 6402. Typical messages could be on the status of the ADSL network for example;
- The ADSL Connection Status
- The upstream and downstream data rates
- The ADSL Line Signal to Noise Ratio
- The Status of the IP Sec Tunnels
Furthermore information on the cellular network is also sent to the MODBUS Registers for example the routers cellular 'Link Status', whether the 6402 has been registered on the cellular network or not and the mobile networks signal strength are all available.
VRRP (Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol)
The 6402 router supports VRRP allowing a second 6402 router to take over the operation of the primary router in the event of the primary router failing.
Digital Input / Output
Most Noteworthy is that the 6402 Industrial ADSL LTE 4G Router with MODBUS Support has dry relay contacts providing digital Input / Outputs which allow the control of third party devices such as cabinet doors or relay alarms etc.
Dual Power Inputs
For maximum reliability the 6402 is equipped with dual power supplies each supply operating from 9 vdc to 48 vdc.
The 6402 has a USB port on the front of the router which can be used by a 3G/4G Dongle or used as a mass storage device or other type of dongle.
A built in data monitor allows data to be monitored and output to a storage device such as a USB Stick attached to the 6402
Finally control and management of the 6402 is via a web browser, via Telnet CLI, the local Console using a CLI, SNMP and TR-069. TR069 allows an ISP to automatically configure the 6402 using a TR069 server.
