April 26, 2017 - The Ruggedcom RX1400 router, with MindConnect running in the VPE1400, is a plug & play solution that enables users to read out data with OPC UA and/or an S7-connection from their assets and pre-process it for the transfer to MindSphere. Subsequently, the encrypted data is transferred to MindSphere, where it is available for processing and analysis. The single device solution provides the combined capabilities of data acquisition, conversion and communication with MindSphere. End devices can connect via serial, wireless LAN, optical or Ethernet connections. The connection to MindSphere can be setup with redundant paths, either via LTE or copper/fiber Ethernet and users benefit from the bandwidth connectivity to remote locations. The ability to function in extreme temperatures from -40° C to +85 makes the Ruggedcom RX 1400 a suitable choice for MindSphere data acquisition in industrial applications such as electric power, transportation, and oil & gas.
The Ruggedcom RX1400 including VPE1400 is a cellular router which combines Ethernet switching, Wireless LAN, routing, virtual machine environment and firewall along with wide area connectivity options such as LTE or Gigabit fiber optics. The Ruggedcom VPE1400 allows applications to run in a virtual environment which is safely partitioned from the Ruggedcom ROX operating system and has full access to the network, wireless LAN, serial and LTE interfaces on the RX1400.
