CIMCON's Ethernet, Cellular and WiFi Gateway

CIMCON Wireless

CIMCON’s Wireless Gateway serves as a “switchboard” for a group of intelligent wireless lighting controllers (iSLCs) to communicate with the CIMCON cloud-based Central Management System. Gateways use backhaul communications networks such as GPRS, Ethernet, WiFi or WiMax and also include a ZigBee® radio module for self-organizing, self-healing local wireless mesh networking.

  • Robust and Reliable: Can communicate with up to 1,000 CIMCON intelligent wireless lighting controllers (iSLCs) spread across significant distances with high scalability and fault tolerance, using self-forming and self-healing mesh networking.

  • Wireless Technologies: CIMCON’s Wireless Gateway utilizes the latest developments in wireless technologies to configure and collect data from CIMCON’s intelligent wireless lighting controllers (iSLCs) and transmit data to and from the CIMCON cloud-based central server.

  • Local Intelligence: CIMCON’s Wireless Gateway uses an extremely powerful 32-bit microcontroller that enables local complex logic and intelligence for faster response times and better performance.

  • Local Data Storage: CIMCON’s Wireless Gateway can store large amounts of data in the event of a communication link failure. This data is transferred to the cloud and CIMCON’s cloud-based Central Management System once the link is available, thus ensuring data integrity.

  • Multiple Connectivity Options: CIMCON’s Wireless Gateway offers several wired and wireless options to connect to the cloud including Ethernet, Serial/USB Interface, GPRS (Cellular), WiFi and WiMax support.

  • Simple Remote Configuration: CIMCON’s Wireless Gateway can be remotely configured from an easy-to-use web interface. Configurations include: input and output mapping, polling rates and GPS coordinates.

  • Multiple Protocol Support: CIMCON’s Gateway provides support for several industry standard protocols that enable easy integration with other systems and networks.

  • Network Fault Tolerance: Multiple Wireless Gateways can be configured in fault tolerant mode to provide the highest levels of network availability.

  • Simple Installation: CIMCON’s Wireless Gateway can be pole or rooftop mounted for easy installation.
