The world's leading electrical connectivity supplier, Weidmüller, has created a new gigabit WAN/LAN industrial Ethernet router that delivers comprehensive security features.
The WAN/LAN industrial Ethernet router translates addresses between different networks using protocols such as port forwarding, 1:1 NAT or masquerading to protect all the Ethernet devices of the hidden network and to ensure safe integration into the network.
In addition, the router also enables access to infrastructure from around the world, supporting up to 10 VPN connections using OpenVPN as well as IPSec technologies to deliver high-level security with minimum effort.
The model also boasts an inbuilt SPI firewall to prevent unwanted remote network access. Better still, the fully functional firewall can be configured to meet individual rules for both Layer 2 (Ethernet) and Layer 3 (IP) transport to deliver top-level security.
Highly intelligent, the firewall also has an auto-learning feature that adapts automatically to the network traffic it sees. This feature provides inexperienced network people with highly effective protection. Generated rules can be edited or deleted.
Performance driven, the industrial security router is highly reliable and robust. It supports Modbus TCP commands and also features two digital inputs and outputs for functions and alarms. The gigabit WAN/LAN ports enable high-speed throughput of data in corporate networks.
For peace of mind, the router uses the memory of a SIM card for external backup and for restoring the system's configuration. Operable in temperatures from -20ºC to +70ºC the router conveniently runs on minimal power from 7V to 36Vdc and can be battery or solar operated at fixed installations or on vehicles.
Housed in a rugged DIN rail mount case to withstand demanding environments, the router is suitable for use in mining, road and transport, and water industries as well as for remote access for automation companies during commissioning and warranty.
Easy to set up and truly value-packed; the security router is available with a three-year warranty.
