PRLog - Aug. 9, 2012 - BASINGSTOKE, U.K. -- Offering smart connectivity for industrial applications, the EHS5 delivers highly efficient 3G communication in the same ultra-compact footprint as the (‘2G’ GSM/GPRS) BGS2 module.
EHS5 new Cinterion 3G module from ACTE
The EHS5 is an ideal solution for M2M applications moving to 3G technology with a focus on long-lasting, future-proof and cost efficient M2M applications. Offering a backward and forward compatible footprint, its multi design capability offers seamless migration and unmatched flexibility to choose frequency bands and global roaming whenever needed.
Powered by Intel’s latest HSPA+ baseband, the next generation of the award-winning Evolution platform features high speed data communication with 7.2 Mbps (max) in the downlink and 5.76 Mbps (max) in the uplink.
Measuring just 18.8 x 27.6 x 2.3mm, the EHS5 comes in Cinterion’s unique LGA (Land Grid Array) package perfectly suited to the manufacturing needs of small or high-volume M2M devices with a focus on reliable and efficient processes. EHS5 supports voice and data communication and best in class low power consumption incorporated with common industrial interfaces such as USB and serial interfaces.
EHS5 is available in two variants: EHS5-US (850/1900 MHz) for North America, and EHS5-E (900/2100 MHz) assuring global coverage and with the ability to fall back to Class 12 GPRS / EDGE should 3G not be available.
David Taylor, PR Manager of ACTE comments “The release of EHS5 enables System Integrators to seamlessly migrate from traditional GPRS designs enabling future proofing of their products, whilst taking advantage of the unique lowest power consumption of any module, that the Cinterion Evolution platform also offers users”.
Taylor continues “3G has already superseded GSM and GPRS as a pre-requisite technology for System Integrators developing telemetry products for use on United States and Australian networks and with most companies offering a global presence, it makes sense for products to be compatible globally without the need for a major board change.”
