Wireless Communication with Elpro’s 415U-E-C4
The Elpro 415U-E-C4 wireless ethernet gateway offers long-range, high-speed industrial communication solutions for reliable and secure connectivity. This unit extends communication to sensors in local, remote and difficult-to-reach locations. In addition, users will benefit from fast and non-line of sight communications up to a 50 km range.
Over the years Elpro has established itself as a leader in Wireless I/O. The 415U-E-C4 uses the same radio as the very popular 415U-2-C4, thereby enabling it to communicate with each other.
Users can now mix Wireless I/O units and Modems connected to a PLC/SCADA in the same system. The 415U-E-C4 acts as an I/O gateway as it supports Modbus, DNP3 and physical I/O which can be connected to the unit via expansion I/O.
The 415U-E-C4 supplied by Tabateq is secure, flexible and reliable. Due to the ease of use of the whole Elpro range, this and other Elpro units are well-suited for use in the mining, water sectors.
On the typical 12.5KHz channel used in licensed telemetry systems a throughput of up to 80kbits/s can be achieved. The radio is based on 802.11, which makes configuration very simple. End-users often do installations & configuration themselves once they have received the necessary training.
Key features include:
- Point to point and point to multi point configuration
- Modbus TCP/RTU Master/Slave Gateway
- DNP3 outstation Configuration
