PLEASANTON, Calif. … Power management company Eaton today announced the release of the ELPRO 450U-E licensed wireless Ethernet modem. Ideal for industrial applications, the product offers powerful long-range communications to extend Ethernet networks in difficult- to-reach locations. Flexible options available support 360 to 512 megahertz (MHz) configurations, providing users with an integrated and complete industrial Ethernet infrastructure solution.
"The 450U-E extends the broad range of licensed and unlicensed Ethernet modems offered by the ELPRO product line," said Steven Toteda, vice president and general manager, Eaton. "With solutions from 60MHz to 5.8GHz, the product line's unique features help extend end-to-end network connectivity, easily integrating with our range of market-leading networking solutions designed to provide end users with a productive and safe solution and lower total cost of ownership."
The ELPRO 450U-E modem is designed to integrate with ELPRO wireless and wired networks to connect remote sensors, actuators and instrumentation to mission critical monitoring and control system programmable logic controllers, distributed control system and supervisory control and data acquisition. Key applications include oil and gas, water/wastewater, mining and power generation.
The ELPRO 450U-E Wireless Ethernet Modem utilizes dynamic network optimization and intelligent routing to achieve high reliability, lower latency and deterministic power management. Additionally, the ELPRO 450U-E operates in an extended temperature range designed to meet the demands of industrial environments and provides secure industry standard encryption (128bit AES, 802.11i with CCMP, WEP, WPA2) and compliance, including ATEX/IECEx (hazardous area approval). It is easy to use and simple to install with DIN-rail or wall-mount options.
