Precise position determination with GPS, GLONAS and GALILEO ; 3D accelerometer and magnetometer, dual CAN for vehicle connection, numerous other interfaces (WLAN, BT LE, Ethernet, RS232, RS485, 1-Wire, USB, digital / analog I / O, audio, …) and protocols ( Modbus, MQTT) and future-proof 4G / LTE cellular connections make the CX660 the perfect platform for demanding telematics applications .

Future-proof mobile connectivity

With a multiband LTE Cat. 4modem, the CX660 has a modern and future-proof mobile radio connection, as 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. With support for a wide range of frequency bands, the CX660 can be used worldwide.

Precise positioning

The CX660 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. Further sensors (3-axis acceleration sensor, 3-axis accelerometer and 3-axis compass) complete the equipment.

Powerful vehicle integration

Two independent complete CAN 2.0B interfaces with hardware filtering and multi-speed support allow comprehensive data acquisition even in complex vehicle installations. Additional units without CAN connection can be flexibly connected via the other interfaces of the CX660.

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.

Performance and security for edge computing

The CX660 is based on a hardened Linux architecture with IEC 61131-3 (ST) 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 CX660 has 5 digital inputs, 4 digital solid state outputs (36V / 1.5A), 2 analog inputs and 4 flex inputs (analog/digital). 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 network connection, the CX660 has a large number of interfaces: 100 Base-T Ethernet, DualCAN-2.0, RS-232, RS-485, 1-Wire, WLAN, Bluetooth LE und 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).
