FX30 Series Benefits
The FX30 integrates the Legato® Open Source Linux Platform that simplifies application-level development with a secure framework, maintained Linux distribution, and feature-rich development environment. Legato® enables efficient C-level programming, making FX30 the core component for distributed IoT systems. For more information on Legato, click here.
The FX30 provides superior performance in harsh environments with its small, rugged aluminum form factor. It meets MIL-STD-810 standard for vibration and mechanical shock, and maintains operation in extended temperatures from -30°C to +75°C, making it the ideal embeddable solution for any industrial machine.
FX30 is pre-certified for large deployments meeting a comprehensive range of regulatory and industry standards worldwide.
Scalable and Extensible
Offering unparalleled flexibility, the FX30 is available in both Ethernet and Serial variants and supports an IoT Connector expansion slot to enable hardware extensions. The IoT Connector enables an unlimited range of sensors and wired and wireless networks, such as Ethernet, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, RS485, CANbus.
The FX30 4G LTE-M supports Cat-M1/NB1 LPWA connectivity, enabling worldwide deployments with a single product. The FX30 3G operates on six 3G bands, with fallback on four 2G bands, also supporting worldwide deployment. The FX30 4G LTE EMEA supports higher Cat-1 data rates and European deployments.
The FX30 offers best-in-class low power consumption, consuming less than 1W in idle mode and 2mW in ultra-low power mode, making it ideal for solar and battery-powered applications.
Entire fleets of FX30s can be monitored, managed, and controlled remotely through AirVantage® IoT Platform.
AirVantage integrates seamlessly with FX30 to also offer a wide range of IoT application enablement features such as device-to-cloud communications, data storage, alerting, web services and analytics. AirVantage’s advanced device and connectivity management services enable efficient system operations for large fleets of FX30s.
Free, unlimited firmware-over-the-air (FOTA) upgrades, powered by Sierra Wireless’ AirVantage® IoT Platform, are available for the lifetime of FX30 to keep connectivity optimized and secure.
Sim & Connectivity
The FX30 supports standard 2FF plastic SIM as well as optional MFF2 embedded SIM, providing the ultimate flexibility for global deployments.
The FX30 fully supports Sierra Wireless’s multi-operator Smart SIM to deliver best in class coverage and superior data service quality. Future releases of the FX30 will also support the GSMA eUICC specification for remote provisioning allowing subscriptions to be remotely updated over-the-air.
