Description

We offer the following extension modules:

  • CAN interfaces for M2M communication or vehicle onboard communication over J1939 / FMS standard
  • RS232 and RS485 serial interfaces for operational or HMI console usage
  • Audio with Push to Talk functionality for emergency calls, driver communication over GSM or VoIP
  • Mass storage to keep up to 1TB of data on the router, e.g. offline media or log data
  • Serial IBIS interface to communicate with onboard information systems

Further modules are currently under development:

  • Isolated digital in/out to directly manage events of other devices or sensors
  • FXS analog telephony interface card for voice gateway functionality
  • Push-to-Talk providing interfaces for radio replacememt over cellular networks

All product variants are assembled and verified by NetModule to ensure type approvals and the standard conformity.
