Instantly leverage new communications technologies as they become available with field-installable sleds.
From factory automation to rugged remote applications, FlexEdge communications sleds feature wide operating temperature ranges and industrial certifications including UL Class 1, Div. II, and ATEX/IECEx approvals for reliable operations. Future-proof your installation and avoid costly and complex rip-and-replace scenarios by enabling your organization to leverage new communications technologies as they become available.
Add 4G LTE cellular communication with active GPS to any application, and provide high speed Cat. 4 connectivity to enable real time monitoring or control capabilities. In router mode, cellular sleds provide multi-carrier support with pre-loaded carrier profiles to ensure connectivity in almost any market.
Providing reliable 802.11b/g/n communications, the FlexEdge Wi-Fi sled can offer client or access point mode, depending on controller choice, in a small form factor.
This rugged, field-installable sled adds two additional Ethernet ports to any application. Each interface is independently routable, or bridgeable.
CAN and J1939
These rugged, field-installable sleds add CAN and J1939 protocol communications.
With FlexEdge serial port sleds, users can ensure communication with virtually any fieldbus device. Featuring up to 5,000 Vrms isolation, these field-installable sleds are available in three port configurations to suit applications requiring high port density.
Use the USB Host sled to connect common Human Interface Device (HID) peripherals to the platform such as a keyboard or mouse, expand the already huge 256 GB micro SD external storage capacity by adding a memory stick or load new configurations in the field.Features
