Features Overview

INDUSTRIAL DATA COLLECTION
  • The FATBOX G3 is a certified, rugged Industrial Gateway Router. Designed in Australia & Assembled in the USA

  • A multi-purpose gateway to collect data from MODBUS RTU/TCP, CAN bus, Serial RS485/232, Ethernet, BLE & ZigBee equipment

  • Able to customise Weather Resistance for outdoor, wet or corrosive environments.

  • Includes a variety of options for different antenna types and DIN rail mounting

DATA PRE-PROCESSING ON BOARD

  • Programmable LINUX gateway with 2GB (customisable) storage

  • Parse data to time series JSON format messages - a useful format for Industrie 4.0 analytics applications (i.e. such as cognitive predictive maintenance).

  • Cross compiling existing C codes tutorial

  • Python & LUA function libraries (API) enable edge computing applications like data correction, minimising network data to the cloud or deploying local automations. Learn more here.

BACKHAUL/ REDUNDANCY FEATURES

  • 3G HSPA+ for remote or mobile data networking. 

  • Dual SIM redundancy support for critical network applications.

  • Ethernet or WIFI to send data to an ADSL or Fiber connection. 

  • Automatic Ethernet WAN-to-3G failover backup for critical network applications

  • Persistent Networking with Active Cellular Link Monitoring Watchdogs & Keep-Alive functions

  • Security with VPN (Site to Site) over 128/256-bit AES IPSEC (PSK).

FOR IIOT DEVELOPMENT ON AZURE

END-TO-END IIOT USING UBIDOTS

IIOT DEVELOPMENT ON OTHER CLOUD PLATFORMS

  • Developers on AWS, IBM Cloud, Google Cloud and other IoT platforms can do so using MQTT cloud protocol.

  • See our Mosquitto MQTT tutorial to send data to a MQTT Subscriber.

ADD YOUR OWN PHYSICAL CUSTOMISATION
  • Physical customs (i.e. expanding the memory or size adjustments) can be made on the stable G3 platform, however minimum quantities will apply. If you require changes such as additional physical interfaces to get the right fit for the job, write to us directly.
