One device – all functions integrated

2G/GPRS mobile radio
GNSS receiver
Data Logger
Control (PLC)

Precise positioning with GPS, GLONAS, Galileo and QZSS; 3D accelerometer and interfaces (RS232, 1-wire, digital/analogue I/O, audio) and protocols (including Modbus, MQTT) as well as a 2G/GPRS mobile network connection make the C610 the ideal platform for demanding telematics applications where a CAN connection is not required.

Precise positioning

The C610 has a high-sensitivity GNSS receiver with support for GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and QZSS (99 acquisition channels / 33 tracking channels) with noise suppression and jamming protection. The support of DGPS (WASS, EGNOS, MSAS and GAGAN) further increases the positioning accuracy. A 3-axis accelerometer completes the equipment.

Integrated mobile communication

The C610 has a 2G/GPRS modem and thus brings mobile communication directly into your applications. Easy to use for connection to all leading cloud platforms, as fault indicator directly with SMS or voice with IVR (Interactive Voice Response) and DTMF or for communication with other M2M controllers. Thanks to the Integrated Development Environment (IDE), programming distributed applications is as easy as programming a single PLC.

Performance and security for edge computing

The C610 is based on an RTOS real-time core with IEC 61131-3 runtime environment. The 32-bit ST Arm®processor provides more than enough power and memory for your edge-computing applications. AES encryption and a certificate management for all important TCP based protocols (e.g. MQTT, SMTP, TCP/IP Sockets) offer a high security for your communication, e.g. with a cloud.

Sophisticated energy management

A built-in UPS (integrated LiIon battery), low power consumption and five execution speeds with wakeup events from various sources allow safe operation even on switched on-board power systems.

I/O interfaces

The C610 has 5 digital inputs, 4 digital solid state outputs (36V / 1.5A) and 2 analog inputs.

Easy communication

In addition to the mobile phone connection, the C610 has further local interfaces: RS-232, and 1-wire. In this way, sensors or other hardware can be easily connected.
