Cellular Gateway Offers Secure Connections to Remote Devices

The ICX30-HWC allows remote site access and communication to PLCs, RTUs, and other Ethernet and serial devices.

ProSoft Technology has released the ICX30-HWC Industrial Cellular Gateway, which allows for remote monitoring of devices where WiFi may not be available.

The industrial cellular gateway provides secure wireless Ethernet and serial connectivity to remote devices and equipment over 3G cellular service. These include PLCs, RTUs, DCS systems, instruments, electronic billboards and communication towers. The industrial cellular gateway is ideal for programming and maintenance, remote data collection, location-based monitoring and SCADA applications. Remote devices are accessed using secure VPN tunnels over Internet connections. In addition, the EtherNet/IP Class 3 Server allows diagnostic data to be sent to a Rockwell Automation ControlLogix or CompactLogix system.

The ICX30-HWC supports cellular networks worldwide, including 3G GSM, WCDMA and HSPA+ Networks, among others.
