Why Do You Need an Industrial Cellular Modem?

Why Do You Need an Industrial Cellular Modem? Think about this: You have devices deployed remotely, with just a serial connection. How would you get data from your devices and keep track of them?

Connect them on your cellular network with InHand’s latest industrial cellular modem, the InDTU. An InDTU is an InHand’s cellular modem designed to make simple connections to serial based equipment over a cellular link. It has a rugged design, small form factor, high reliability and easy-to-use features.

The InDTU cellular modem provides wireless data communication between serial devices in the field and a central location to enable remote monitoring and control of equipment.

It is available in LTE CAT 4, CAT M1, CAT NB1 and EGPRS versions for global use.  Application areas are Utilities, Intelligent Lighting, Metering and Agriculture.

In brief: InDTU helps you to Lower support costs, obtain reporting data, Industrial design, Highly-reliable wireless communication and easy and flexible management.
