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.

IEEE 802.15.4 WIRELESS MESH NETWORK

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.


MOBILE CONNECTIVITY

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.

PRO VERSION FOR DEMANDING USERS

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.
