The new router series

Great power in a small space

Good networking between machines and industrial equipment is becoming increasingly important. The Internet of Things is moving ever further into the facilities and creates more services and business models. The underlying basis for data transmission are usually industrial routers or gateways. Our router series flex.i.mobile ensures optimal data transmission at any time in your machine.

Industrial housing

Robust and reliable

The routers from the flex.i.mobile series are suitable for top-hat rail mounting and can be perfectly integrated into existing systems. Thanks to overvoltage protection and reverse-polarity-protected input wiring, error-free installation and trouble-free operation are ensured. The DC voltage input supports a wide range from 5 volts to 36 volts and enables flexible power supply with different voltages.

Secure transfer of data

VPN technology

The data transmitted with the router is protected by modern VPN technology. The devices of the flex.i.mobile series support common VPN protocols and VPN software such as OpenVPN, L2TP, GRE, IPsec and SSTP for optimal integration into the corporate VPN. The possibility of configuring private instead of public APNs contributes to the security of communication via mobile communications.

Use in mobile machines

Bring intelligence to small plants

With the routers from Elco you can equip small vending machines with mobile radio and the Internet. For example, machines at stations can be monitored and maintained remotely. The devices automatically report when material becomes scarce or technical faults occur. This gives you the opportunity to minimize the downtime of the machines by sending the service personnel on time.

Ideal for the mobile use of IoT

If construction machines, smaller systems or devices of the IoT are to be networked and equipped with the Internet, the flex.i.mobile series from Elco offers an excellent solution. The routers, which are designed and tested according to mechanical engineering standards, are equipped with a stable metal housing and are extremely robust. The large operating voltage range allows operation with 12 Volt or 24 Volt batteries. The overvoltage protection prevents failures due to external voltage influences.

Always the best network!

Always the best network!

The Elco flex.i.mobile series always ensures the best possible data transfer rate. It is optimized for the use of elcoSIM, which supports provider roaming, i.e. the switching between different providers. The router series has an automatic search for the best network. The series checks not only the signal strength but the actual upload and download speeds. With provider roaming, you always use the best network, which ensures optimum data transmission for your machines.

Ideal as a back-up solution!

Ideal as a back-up solution!

A classic Internet connection usually ensures reliable and fast data transmission. Often whole business processes and procedures in a company are based on a stable internet connection. Whether it is the connection of the machine for remote maintenance or book-keeping to an external server. But what happens when there is no internet available again? The failure of the Internet connection can paralyze entire areas of the company. However, Elco's flex.i.mobile router series is equipped with automatic power failure detection. It automatically detects when Internet access over the network fails and then uses the mobile network. That's why it ensures optimum data transfer in every situation and is ideal as a backup router.

Industrial Design

Industrial Design

The industrial router series flex.i.mobile is characterized by industrial design. Due to its metal housing, the series is extremely robust and it is also shock and vibration resistant. Therefore, it is ideal for the use in machines. In addition, this series has got one of the smallest routers on the market. This allows easy installation and thus rapid deployment. The router series is not only compact and robust, but also economical.
