TropOS 2420 and TropOS 2410 mesh edge nodes are used to build field area networks for industrial communication and automation applications. Integrating a managed four-port Ethernet switch, RS-232/485 serial, voltage and contact closure monitoring, and a GPS receiver, the TropOS 2420/2410 enables reliable, secure and manageable IP communications for utility, oil and gas, mining and industrial applications.
The TropOS 2420/2410 integrates the functionality of four or more devices (backhaul radio, 802.11 access point, 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 TropOS 2420/2410 ideal for connecting new and legacy field automation devices to a broadband mesh network. Field automation devices include intelligent electrical devices, remote terminal units, programmable logic controllers, flow computers, edge compute devices and more.
