Description

The NetModule NG800 multifunctional IoT-Device, suitable for harsh environments, provides the necessary robust communication between on-board vehicle equipment and cloud applications.

The modular concept of software, electronics and mechanical components to be optimized for specific target applications.

For wireless communication, NG800 is equipped with an LTE Cat 4, NB1 or M1 modem, 2 SIM slots for failover links, WiFi 802.11abgn as client or small in- vehicle access point, GNSS dead reckoning, IMU and Bluetooth. A Molex CMC 48 pin connector may serve for all wired interfaces such as CAN, Broad-R Reach, Fast Ethernet, DIO or RS-232.

The platform core features can be extended with a customized module to provide additional interfaces or embed parallel CPU subsystems using the Ethernet backplane. 
Alternatively, other connectors such as M12 can be equipped.

With the robust IP65 protection level using a thermoplastic cover and an aluminum bottom plate, it is made for outdoor/ out of vehicle use. Optional internal LTE, WiFi and GNSS antennas can reduce the overall costs.

The product platform includes the software support for all components in a Yocto Linux Distribution. Customers can deploy their own applications or make use of existing frameworks such as Automotive Grade Linux (AGL).
