ICP Electronics Australia introduces the I-8212W and I-8213W industrial quad-band GSM/GPRS modules with optional GPS function (I-8213W only) from ICP DAS.
The new industrial quad-band modules work on frequencies of GSM 850MHz, EGSM 900MHz, DCS 1800MHz and PCS 1900MHz. Both modules utilise the GSM/GPRS network providing convenient and inexpensive data transfer from remote instruments, meters, computers or control systems in either live or packet data.
The I-8212W/I-8213W modules are used for the smooth integration of 2G wireless M2M applications within the ICP DAS PAC series. The modules feature general modem functionality and integrated TCP/IP stacks to enable even simple controllers with serial communications ports to be connected to the modem without the need for special driver implementation.
Users can choose their preferred platform to develop programs with the I-8212W/I-8213W modules supporting 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).
