EC2G utilises an industrial grade M2M wireless engine and is available in dual band GSM 900/1800MHz or quad band GSM 850/900/1800/
Key features include micro power option for battery powered applications, input voltage of 5 to 22V DC, wide temperature operating range of -30˚C to 70˚C and remote firmware updating and management.
EC2G modems provide a transparent connection over TCP/IP or CSD bearers. For compatibility with existing software, the modem supports industry standard AT commands. EC2G can be configured to accept incoming TCP/IP or CSD connections without any intervention from the host system. This enables it to be used with any systems with a compatible serial interface via the 25 way D connector. This industry standard data port enables the EC2G to be connected to equipment in place of a fixed line modem – once installed it will operate like a leased line modem.
Measuring just 24 x 56 x 60mm and light enough to be mounted via the 25 way connector, EC2G can be powered via the 25 pin serial connector or via a DC jack. An RF connector provides an antenna input and a push-push SIM card holder is provided for a 1.8V or 3V SIM card. The modem is encased in a two part welded plastic with a multicolour LED providing modem status.
