Advantech announced two new IP gateways; the EKI-1321 and 1322 GPRS have been designed to ensure that networks are always connected. With dual SIM slots, designed to support GPRS signal redundancy which automatically switch to any available channel if the other one is disconnected and an SD slot for data buffering and auto recovery to prevent loss of serial data if the communication is interrupted the EKI-1321 and 1322 always provide reliable and redundant communication.
EKI-1321 and EKI-1322 are cellular gateways that can transparently bring RS-232/422/485 or Ethernet devices to a cellular network. They allow nearly any device with serial or Ethernet ports to connect and share a cellular network with an easy and simple configuration.
EKI-1321 and EKI-1322 GPRS IP Gateway's are compact, and can be DIN-rail or wall mounted; coming with both front panel and side panel LED displays for easy identification. Each device also includes dual DC power input from 12 to 48 VDC and have 2KV EFT/surge protection to prevent damage from various types of power resources. The serial ports are also protected by 15KV ESD line protection to keep your system safe from unexpected electrical discharges.
