MONTREAL – December 12, 2017 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is offering immediate shipping availability of B+B SmartWorx’s new SmartStart™ LTE family of cellular routers and gateways.
The SmartStart™ LTE family of cellular routers and gateways from B+B SmartWorx are the perfect way to connect RS-232 and Ethernet devices to a cellular network. The processor is powerful enough to handle the full range of LTE communications capabilities, including video streams. The internal memory provides ample storage for custom scripts, software applications and a wide variety of protocols. In addition to Ethernet and RS-232 ports, SmartStart™ has built-in digital I/O connectivity and selected models include Wi-Fi capability.
With the Low Power Mode feature, battery life is extended by dropping power consumption to 40 mW, and can be triggered by timers, low voltage detection or I/O. SmartStart™ is the industry’s only cellular gateway with power consumption equivalent to 2G devices.
SmartStart™ is an excellent fit for applications that are migrating to LTE technology, including industrial M2M and IoT applications such as Ethernet lottery machines, ATM stations, kiosk locations, and gaming terminals, along with RS-232 traffic controllers, meters, UPS systems and PLCs.
