Raven RV50 & RV50XIndustrial LTE Router

The AirLink® RV50 is the industry’s lowest power and most rugged LTE router.  Simple to install and easy to manage, this industrial-grade router is designed to connect critical assets and infrastructure.  Ideal for energy, utilities and smart-city applications, the RV50 provides real-time remote connectivity for SCADA, distribution management systems and metering.

RUGGED DESIGN FOR DEMANDING ENVIRONMENTS  The RV50 is designed to withstand harsh industrial conditions, and is capable of surviving 5 V brownouts and spikes from -600 VDC to 200 VDC. Certified as Class I Div 2, it is ideal for hazardous environments. The die cast aluminum housing is sealed to meet IP64 for resistance to dust and water ingress. The RV50 is tested to meet and exceed the MIL-STD-810G specification for shock, vibration, temperature and humidity. The built-in power supply protection make it suitable for harsh electrical environments such as compressors, generators, and excavators.

ULTRA-LOW POWER CONSUMPTION  The RV50 offers best-in-class power consumption combined with LTE performance, and is optimized for battery and solar applications. It is the industry’s only LTE gateway with 2G power consumption, operating at 900 mW in idle mode. For 2G and 3G deployments migrating to LTE, the RV50 will work with existing power infrastructure, eliminating the need to invest in replacement solar panels or batteries. Standby Mode provides additional protection for batteries by dropping power consumption to 53 mW, and can be triggered by timers, low voltage detection or I/O.

SIMPLIFIED DEPLOYMENT  The RV50 automatically configures the radio based on the SIM, which provides versatility and simplicity when changing operator networks.  Ideal for global deployments, the RV50X provides worldwide LTE coverage with just two product variants; one for North America and EMEA, and one for Asia-Pacific.

BEST-IN-CLASS REMOTE MANAGEMENT  Network Management solutions for the RV50 allow over-the-air registration, configuration and software updates, and can be deployed either as a cloud based service, or as a licensed software platform in the enterprise data center.  Both options provide a centralized and remote view of an entire fleet and enable simplified management, control and monitoring of connected RV50s and critical infrastructure.  AirLink Management Service (ALMS) is a secure, centralized cloud-based service that remotely monitors and manages signal strength, network technology and location. ALMS provides dashboards with up-to-date views of an entire deployment, and custom alerts to monitor and report critical events, to increase efficiency and prevent downtime.  AirLink Mobility Manager (AMM) is a licensed, unified software platform which can be deployed in the enterprise data center, and provides a consolidated network view of an entire fleet, using a virtual dashboard to monitor, report, manage, and troubleshoot all mobile resources as required.

INSTANT INTEGRATION  The RV50 is designed to install directly into existing infrastructure. Offering both serial and Ethernet connectivity, it can be used to connect devices like PLCs and RTUs, and transmit a wide variety of protocols like Modbus/DNP3 with ease. RV50 can also be integrated directly into existing management systems via SNMP.

INTELLIGENCE AT THE EDGE  The RV50 provides an application framework which allows customers to apply intelligence at the edge of the network. The RV50X offers a dual core processor which enhances the performance of edge applications.

SECURE INDUSTRIAL COMMUNICATIONS  The RV50 supports secure communications to multiple back-end systems by providing up to five concurrent VPN sessions. Remote authentication management allows enterprise-grade systems to manage access to devices in the field. Port filtering and trusted IP protect the devices connected to RV50s from unwanted access. Secure signing and authentication of software images offers end-to-end protection of the software upgrade process, protecting the RV50 against unwanted Malware.
