MicrOS 411 broadband mesh client nodes enable cost-effective yet reliable and secure IP communications for utility, oil and gas, mining, and industrial applications that monitor and control field automation. It enables wired Internet of Things, Services and People (IoTSP) clients to connect to a TropOS broadband wireless mesh network. IoTSP clients include intelligent electrical devices, remote terminal units, programmable logic controllers, flow computers and more.
Housed in an industry-standard DIN rail mountable form factor, the MicrOS 411 integrates the functionality of three or more devices (backhaul radio, protocol converter, Ethernet switch, etc.) into one package. By eliminating unmanaged, external components, this high level of function integration reduces equipment and installation costs while enhancing reliability and manageability.
RS-232 and RS-485 serial connections, in addition to Ethernet ports, and support for popular automation protocols such as DNP3, Modbus and IEC 61850 with GOOSE messaging make the MicrOS 411 ideal for connecting new and legacy wired IoTSP clients to a TropOS mesh network. The MicrOS 411 simplifies device and network configuration compared to traditional wireless bridges and is designed to provide cost effective connectivity for IoTSP clients to a high reliability TropOS mesh network. Aggregating the Ethernet switch and serial interfaces reduces cost and installation time and simplifies management. The integrated GPS improves asset tracking.
The MicrOS 411provides an economical vehicle for utilities and other industrial companies to securely deploy field automation communications. It offers a multi-layer, multi-application security model that provides defense-in-depth. Its advanced set of standards-based security features for field area networks including a built-in firewall and IPsec VPN in every unit. The MicrOS 411enables traffic from different applications and user groups to be segregated on separate virtual local area networks (VLANs), each with its own address space, security policies and Quality of Service (QoS) policies. In addition, the product’s operating software provides the technical controls required to achieve NERC CIP v5 compliance.
The MicrOS 411 functionality is also available in packaged in an outdoor enclosure, MicrOS 410.
