SCALANCE M product family

Easy remote access to machines and plants

SCALANCE M industrial routers can be used universally in telecontrol, teleservice, and any other application for industrial remote communication.

SCALANCE M industrial routers enable the connection of remote machines and plants to public or private Remote Networks. Communication takes place wirelessly using GSM (2G), UMTS (3G), or LTE (4G) or wired via ADSL and SHDSL or PROFIBUS / MPI. The industrial routers are easy to integrate into the SINEMA Remote Connect management platform for Remote Networks – for simple, secure remote access to plants and machines.

Wireless connection to Remote Networks

It’s often less expensive to use globally available, public mobile communication networks to connect remote plants and machines than to build a corporate wireless network (for example, an Industrial Wireless LAN). It’s also appropriate when no other transmission medium (like a dedicated line / telephone network) is available. 

 

With the SCALANCE M mobile wireless routers, both stationary stations and mobile users – for example, railway and road vehicles, coastal vessels, and inland navigation vessels – can be connected to a central control and monitoring system. The routers’ high data rates enable the delay-free transmission of bulk data and images. Depending on the application and availability. Communication can take place via GSM (2G), UMTS (3G), or LTE (4G).
