Reference showcase

Some applications are not really mission-critical and it would not be economical to build a private radio data network. In such cases, data transfer over GPRS may be the right option, however an industry application requires industry-grade equipment. The RACOM MG100 router brings such industry-level robustness and reliability into the environment of public networks.

MG100 is a member of the MORSE product family, hence it is fully compatible with MR400 radio modems on user interfaces and it can be managed using the same software tools, the RANECnetwork management
software including. Thanks to this full compatibility, MORSE hybrid networks, where data transfer over Radio channel and GPRS is combined, can easily be built using MG100 routers and MR400 radio modems.

  • More than 70 protocols – Modbus, IEC101, DNP3, Comli, DF1, Profibus, Modbus TCP, IEC104…
  • Cache mode – speeds up polling protocols
  • SCADA serial protocol addresses are mapped to MG100 addresses
  • Implementation is 100% compatible with MR400 Hybrid networks
  • HW and SW compatible with MR400 radio modems
  • The same tools for configuration and maintenance
  • Combination of GSM (MG100) and Radio channel (MR400) within one user application
  • A single application / user protocol can operate over any combination of GSM (MG100) and Private radio (MR400) networks.

Since GPRS is a public service, MG100 should not be used for mission-critical applications.

MG100 is a part of the MORSE system. Description of the MORSE system itself,
the Utilities for configuration and diagnostics
and RANEC, the network management software, you can find on MR400 product page.
