6LoWPAN Gateway/Routers

Product Codes: GEG-AM-200, GEG-AM-200P

The 6LoWPAN Gateway/Router family of devices provide transparent RS-485/422 tunnelling over a wireless IEEE 802.15.4 standard, with 6LoWPAN connectivity.

When installed, the Gateways allow for transparent communication between RS-485/422 buses over a wireless network, eliminating the need for long cabling. For example, control networks such as MODBUS can be elegantly installed with Internet connectivity via Modbus TCP.


Multiple 6LoWPAN Gateway/Routers form a wireless network mesh. Each node has its own intelligence, using an IPv6 stack, allowing for point-to-point communication between any two devices on the network.


Via a connection to an external modem or router, the 6LoWPAN Gateway/Routers can output communications data to any mobile device or PC connected to the internet. Genesys can provide custom apps to suit the application.


The Pro version (GEG-AM-200P) expands on the base model 6LoWPAN Gateway/Router (GEG-AM-200) by providing additional input and output channels, along with support for an external accessory board (GBU-XN-200), providing a backlit 128x64 LCD screen, 4 user configurable LEDs, 4 push buttons and may be further extended with a 4x4 alphanumeric keypad.
