YORK, Pa., May 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Red Lion Controls, the global experts in communication, monitoring and control for industrial automation and networking, today announced the availability of 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) support on the AT&T cellular network for its Sixnet series RAM® 9000 industrial cellular RTUs. With certified AT&T 4G LTE wireless connectivity, organizations of all sizes can leverage increased data speeds for primary or backup WAN connectivity for remote industrial and manufacturing sites, video surveillance applications and rugged automation environments.
"We are pleased to announce that our new RAM 9000 industrial cellular RTUs have been certified for use on the AT&T cellular network in North America," said Paul Bunnell, product director, process automation for Red Lion Controls. "Our compatibility with AT&T's 4G LTE network illustrates Red Lion's commitment to providing industrial partners and customers with rugged, high-performance connectivity. By using our industrial cellular products to gain high-speed access to data and video, customers can achieve data rates that were once only available through the use of wired connections."
The RAM 9000 combines built-in I/O and active GPS with multiple serial and Ethernet ports to securely monitor remote devices via AT&T 4G LTE cellular communications. Ideal for deployment in industrial M2M networks such as oil and gas, water/wastewater, utility, transportation and mining applications, the RAM 9000 provides a seamless network extension to remote locations. With more I/O than many competitive offerings, the RAM 9000 serves as a robust platform that enables customers to save wiring time, space and cost by combining separate functions into one cellular device.
Features of the RAM 9000 include:
- High-density on-board I/O (two digital inputs, two digital outputs, three analog inputs and one relay output) lowers total system cost
- Separate RS-232 and RS-485 ports offer remote connectivity to serial devices
- Routing capabilities provide reliable, secure communication and network failover
- Active GPS receiver automatically tracks device location information
