Industrial router is adaptable for unattended retail digital signage

Believed to be the only industrial router capable of operating in industrial infrastructure, location monitoring and unattended retail applications, the Digi IX20 integrates with Digi Remote Manager, an IoT device monitoring application that provides secure remote monitoring and control.

According to Digi, the monitoring application also enables automated firmware and software updates, and provides comprehensive management of intelligent routers.

Digi IX20 uses Digi CORE plug-in modems that provide user-selectable connectivity while maintaining the ability to change or upgrade connectivity protocols without replacing the router. The serial interface fits into most deployments without requiring a redesign, adds the company.

The router has s to supports a wide range of applications and use cases from critical industrial monitoring to self-service retail kiosks. Key features include:

Digi Remote Manager provides centralised device management, supporting set up, mass configuration, control and maintenance. It provides real-time view of network and device health and compliance, sending notifications when an alert is triggered, diagnosing and potentially repairing remote devices without the need to deploy a technician.

Digi SureLink maintains cellular connections under adverse conditions, provides reliable uptime for mission-critical applications. Smart load balancing between cellular and Ethernet WANs, dual APNs, and configurable APN search simplify deployment and reduce setup time. There are also dual SIMs for failover.

There is also optional Wi-Fi with serial RS-232 (DB9), Ethernet, and cellular LTE CAT-4 connectivity. Customers can add their own edge compute algorithms with Python support and native Linux applications.

The integrated Digi TrustFence security framework combines secure boot, protected hardware ports, and secure connections with the latest encryption protocols.

The router operates in a wide range of temperatures and is built to withstand the harshest environments. It is rated IP30 and has been tested for operation in temperatures ranging from -40 to +70 degrees C.
