One device – many functions

4G/LTE mobile
Control (PLC)
GNSS receiver
Data Logger
Fault warning device

The CX460 combines many functions in one device, from an integrated LTE modem (with fallback to UMTS and GPRS) and a programmable controller (PLC) to a professional data logger and fault indicator. Strong in communication thanks to numerous interfaces (e.g. WLAN, Bluetooth, ISM RF, 1-Wire, RS-485…) and protocols and almost unlimited expandability, it is the ideal device for demanding M2M and IoT applications in harsh environments. Thanks to its built-in GNSS receiver it is also suitable for mounting on moving machines. The CX460 can be operated both with 8..36 VDC. and also supplied with 100..260VAC.

Future-proof mobile connectivity

With a multiband LTE Cat. 4 modem, the CX460 has a modern and future-proof mobile radio connection, because LTE will represent the comprehensive backbone of mobile communications in the long term. Automatic fallback to EDGE / GPRS ensures optimal network availability. Voice with IVR (Interactive Voice Response) and DTMF as well as SMS complete the profile. Thanks to support for a large number of frequency bands, the CX460 can be used worldwide.

Performance and security for edge computing

The CX460 is based on a hardened Linux architecture with IEC 61131-3 runtime environment. The Arm®Cortex®– A5 processor with floating point support, DSP functions and cryptographic acceleration offers more than enough power for your edge computing applications. TLS/SSL support for all important TCP based protocols (e.g. MQTT, SMTP, Sockets) with full certificate management effectively protects your communication, e.g. with a cloud.

I/O interfaces for all needs

The CX460 has 5 digital inputs (4 of which can be configured as S0), 4 relay outputs (5A @250VAC), 4 flexibly configurable analog inputs and outputs each. The interface equipment is completely transparently expandable via Modbus modules for the user software and can be extended almost indefinitely.

Versatile communication

In addition to the mobile phone connection, the CX460 has a large number of interfaces: 100 Base-T Ethernet, RS-232, RS-485, 1-Wire, WLAN, Bluetooth LE and USB. For easy use of the interfaces, the development remotion provides support for a variety of protocols such as TCP/IP, UDP, SMTP, FTP, MQTT,1-Wire, M-Bus, Modbus (Master and slave).

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 networks.

Precise positioning

The CX460 has a highly sensitive GNSS receiver with support for GPS, GLONASS and GALILEO (99 acquisition channels / 33 tracking channels) with noise suppression and jamming protection. The support of DGPS (WASS, EGNOS, MSAS, GAGAN) further increases the positioning accuracy. Additional sensors (3-axis acceleration sensor, 3-axis accelerometer and 3-axis compass) complete the equipment, making it an ideal controller for moving machines in harsh environments.
