Cinterion, the machine-to-machine business segment of Gemalto, has announced that its TC65i quad-band wireless module has been fully integrated in the AirGate-GPRS system for remote monitoring and site automation.
Developed by Novus Automation, a manufacturer of supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), the system links industrial equipment to backend computer systems providing 24/7 remote supervision. The Cinterion high-performance plug-in and play module provides secure wireless connectivity for remote monitoring and management of industrial processes in manufacturing and building automation environments, the company said.
With an embedded Java engine, the Cinterion solution runs AirGate software directly on the module freeing up computing power for innovative automation tasks such as controlling robots and improving energy efficiency in manufacturing. The AirGate features multiple industrial interfaces for flexibility and easy integration with any automation system.
"Cinterion's design consulting and powerful Java-embedded solution simplified design and integration, and eliminated the expense of additional processors and memory," said Marcos Dillenburg, Technology Director of Novus Automation. "Cinterion's industry-leading wireless communication tools allow secure access into manufacturing from virtually any place, any time for a more streamlined workforce."
"The vibrant manufacturing sector in Brazil is driving strong growth in the region's industrial automation market," said Ramzi Abdine, General Manager of Cinterion M2M at Gemalto Latin America. "Combining Cinterion's leadership in reliable M2M technology with Novus's expertise in automation and SCADA systems provides customers with leading-edge technology that optimizes operations and strengthens competitive advantage."
