The INGESYSTM IC2 control system completes its wide range of communication options with a new wireless communications module, supporting WiFi and GSM via 3G/4G mobile networks.
The new communications module is available in different configurations depending on requirements.
- GSM 3G
- WiFi and GSM 3G
In the INGESYSTM IC2 controller processor unit, the wireless communications module is housed as one of the field bus options available, incorporating an external antenna connector for each of the types of communication.
The WiFi communication supports the 802.11 a/b/g/n standard, making it possible to integrate INGESYSTM IC2 as a client in existing wireless networks, or create new networks by configuring it in AP mode in installations where there is no wireless infrastructure.
GSM communication supports both transparent TCP/IP communications or high level protocols such as FTP or SFTP. This type of communication suits scenarios where the INGESYSTM IC2 system must download data on a remote server regularly, for example in Cloud monitoring systems.
