1. M!DGE router

1.1. Introduction

Although M!DGE wireless routers have been specifically designed for SCADA and telemetry, they are well suited to a variety of wireless applications. M!DGE HW and SW are ready to maintain reliable and secure connections from a virtually unlimited number of remote locations to a central server. Both standard Ethernet/IP and serial interfaces are available. Moreover, a digital input and a digital output can be used for direct monitoring and control of application devices; the second DI and DO are available using an extension module.

M!DGE versatility is further enhanced by four independent Ethernet ports. These can be configured to either support independent LANs (e.g. LAN and WAN settings), or simply connect up to four devices within one LAN (effectively replacing an Eth switch). M!DGE software is based on proven components, including an Embedded Linux operating system and standard TCP/IP communication protocols.

Thanks to the compact size and versatility of M!DGE, wireless routers prove indispensable in many SCADA and telemetry, as well as POS, ATM, lottery and security/surveillance applications.

M!DGE together with RACOM RipEX radio router offers an unrivalled solution for combining cellular and UHF/VHF licensed radios in a single network.
