The Work Horse
The ETM9440-1 is a 2G and 3G cellular wireless terminal designed for demanding M2M applications. The units have a DB9 Female connector for RS232 serial interface, and an RJ12 connector for power input, plus a combined serial and power input on an RJ45 connector for simple connection to power meters for AMR applications.
Incorporating the Gemalto Cinterion PH8-P module with five-bands 800/850, 900, 1900 and 2100 MHz, it enables:
- Automatic meter reading
- Remote access to data loggers or PLC
- Mobile telematics solutions
Since the Telstra 2G network is scheduled to close at the end of 2016, considering a crossover modem with dual 2G and 3G capabilities such as the Work Horse is a good idea.
