net-line FW-5-GATE-4G

Powerful telecontrol with integrated LTE modem

The net-line FW-5-GATE-4G brings together powerful telecontrol technology with an LTE modem for flexible mobile radio connection. It has a modern 4G chip set and excels with high reception quality thanks to MIMO technology with two antennas. Download rates up to 150 Mbit/s and an upload speed to the station of up to 50 Mbit/s make the FW-5-GATE-4G an outstandingly powerful communication component. The ability to fall back to 3G and 2G networks allows it to operate even in areas with poor LTE reception. The bay station controller is based on the latest series5e technology, which has at least three times the performance of the series5+ generation with 1200 MIPS. It comes with convenient performance reserves, also in respect to future challenges. The enhanced performance in particular has a positive impact on network communication via IEC 61850 and process point treatment according to the IEC 60870-5-10x standard as well as in high IT security.
