F3426 High-powered Industrial Cellular Router for PLC

Project Introduction

Traditional field-bus networks were, and some still are, isolated automation systems which require extensive local monitoring and routine on-site maintenance. To increase productivity and reduce operating costs, many manufacturers and plant operators have deployed industrial Ethernet to converge remotely isolated field-bus systems for centralized control and monitoring.Many advanced industrial automation systems have deployed gateways to efficiently bridge field-bus I/O devices to Ethernet based PLCs, switches to connect PLCs and SCADA terminals at remote control centers, to reduce operating costs and improve production efficiency of expanding.

System Requirements
  • High performance ensures high network capability
  • Seamless site-to-center communications; 
  • RJ45 Ethernet port for PLC connection.

Four-Faith Router for PLC Solution

Deploying a smart and reliable industrial control system requires an optimized industrial network design to help ensure a high-performance, efficient, and flexible platform for daily operation. Four-Faith provides a selection of networking products for optimization of PLC network performance and management, including industrial Ethernet 3G/4G gateways designed specifically for EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, and Modbus TCP applications.

Four-Faith’s industrial Ethernet routers offer industry-leading redundancy (< 20s recovery time), fast booting capability (< 1 min start-up time), full status parameters, and flexible topology to ensure high network reliability, availability, manageability, and flexibility of industrial control systems. Four-Faith’s industrial Ethernet gateways are easy-to-configure for quick integration of legacy field devices to control networks, and easy-to-maintain for rapid monitoring and troubleshooting of field-bus communications.
