Introduction

RailBox LTE is a rugged cellular router equipped with a dual-band WiFi interface (2.4 / 5 GHz), a multiconstellation GNSS interface (GPS, GLONASS ...), 2 Ethernet ports 10/100/1000/2500, one alarm output and one digital input. RailBox LTE is designed to be mounted on trains, subways, trams or any other mobile equipment in harsh environment.


RailBox LTE uses dual-SIM 4G/5G LTE and WiFi 802.11n/ac/ax MIMO radios to guarantee broadband data transfers in motion or stationary (station or depot). Its cellular interface provides a secure backup connection for maintenance applications along the journey; its WiFi interface adds high speed communications wherever the WiFi coverage is available (depot, station, covered sections along the journey …).


Definitely designed for mobility, RailBox LTE complies with all EN50155 standards and meets the most stringent environmental requirements: shocks and vibrations proof, IP66, operating temperature up to -40°C/+70°C. RailBox LTE features a dual insulated power supply, M12 hardened connectors and C-KEY for quick backup/restore of the product configuration.


Digital I/O can be used to remotely control a device thanks to a relay and to read the logic state of an input signal.

 

This product is also available in rugged dual 802.11ac/ax WiFi access point version, click here to access RailBox.
