Australian and New Zealand distributor M2M Connectivity has available Maestro Heritage 3G modems, industrial grade devices that use UMTS technology for machine-to-machine applications.
These tri-band UMTS 850, 1900 and 2100MHz HSPA modems have customisable hardware and software options for project tailoring needs.
With the use of add-on boards, they can function as an analogue input and pulse counting gateway, a GPS or Coronis Wavenis, or digital IO or Ethernet gateway.
With a Telstra approved module inside, the modems have data transfer rates of 7.2Mbit/s downlink and 2Mbit/s uplink, providing always-on internet connectivity, which is suitable for remote sites that require continual monitoring and data transfer to a central server.
In addition, the supplied Maestro Heritage Softool lets users customise the software, allowing for the choice of preferred configurations for quick integration into existing applications.
