12 September 2011
ConnectPort X5 R is certified to use Iridium satellite network for two-way, low-latency data communications.
Digi International’s ConnectPort X5 R is now certified to use the Iridium satellite network for global, two-way, low-latency data communications. The gateway is a compact, ruggedized tracking and telematics device that incorporates cellular, satellite, global positioning system (GPS), Wi-Fi and vehicle area network (VAN) wireless technology in a single enclosure allowing for the greatest possible connectivity flexibility. Ideal for fleet management and asset tracking applications, the ConnectPort X5 R provides remote connectivity to mobile assets via cellular or satellite networks.
ZTR Control Systems, a manufacturer of remote monitoring and control systems for railway and industrial applications, announces it is using the ConnectPort X5 R for connecting its customers’ mobile and remote equipment. ZTR Control Systems also uses iDigi Manager Pro to configure and manage device deployments and integrate with fleet applications.
The ConnectPort X5 R provides flexible wide area networking connectivity supporting cellular, Wi-Fi, GPS, vehicle area network (VAN) and satellite functionality. VANs allow users to deploy low-power sensor networks within and around a vehicle to monitor tires, reefer units, door latches, temperature sensors, cargo sensors, RFID readers and other critical asset points. The ConnectPort X5 R also features J1939 and other vehicle bus types allowing it to interface with construction fleets and remote industrial equipment like engines and generators.
