The MC PMRL router is equipped with a mobile module and can be individually programmed using OpenWrt Linux. This makes it more than just an industrial mobile router – it also includes software functions which can be used instead of additional expensive extension modules, for example protocol converters. As a result, IoT application costs can be reduced by up to 75 percent.
The MC Technologies MC PMRL industrial router can connect two remote networks via a mobile network, send sensor and other data, carry out switching tasks or transmit alarm signals. It can also be used for applications requiring the connection of different interfaces; making it an alternative, for example, to protocol converters such as ModbusTCP to Modbus RTU. Despite this high level of functionality, the MC PMRL is only slightly more expensive than a standard router.
OpenWrt Linux can be used to develop proprietary IoT applications and to integrate existing OpenWrt software add-ons and drivers. The MC PMRL has been designed with analogue inputs and digital in- and outputs, making it suitable for industrial machine communication applications among other things.
