ICP Electronics Australia introduces the I-8212W and I-8213W industrial Quad-band GSM/GPRS modules with optional GPS function (I-8213W only).
The modules are used for the smooth integration of 2G wireless M2M applications within the ICP DAS PAC series, finding application in vending machine monitoring systems, security systems and remote data acquisition.
Operating on frequencies of GSM 850MHz, EGSM 900MHz, DCS 1800MHz and PCS 1900MHz, both industrial Quad-band GSM/GPRS modules utilise the GSM/GPRS network providing convenient and inexpensive data transfer from remote instruments, meters, computers or control systems in live or packet data.
The industrial Quad-band modules feature general modem functionality and integrated TCP/IP stacks so that even simple controllers with serial communications ports can be connected to the modem without the need for special driver implementation.
The I-8212W/I-8213W modules support all kinds of PAC platforms in ICP Das such as XPAC-8000 (Windows Embedded Standard 2009), WinPAC-8000/ViewPAC (WinCE 5.0 Based), iPAC-8000 (miniOS7 Based) and LinPAC-8000 (Linux kernel 2.6 based), enabling users to choose their preferred platform to develop programs.
