AirGate-GPRS is a wireless multifunctional gateway that allows the transparent and easy insertion of wireless branches into existing wired RS-485 networks. Its GSM/GPRS interface enables it to connect to a cloud based gateway.

The AirGate-GPRS has four operation modes; Modbus Master, multiplexer, USB to RS-485 converter and simple wireless RS-485 extension. A proprietary protocol based on IEEE 802.15.4 facilitates operation in Star mode, allowing the connection of several wireless segments to an existing Modbus RS-485 network.

Features:

  • Connects to a cloud based gateway through its GSM/GPRS interface, enabling remote access to Modbus slaves connected to local interfaces
  • Fully compatilbe with NOVUS M2M Gateway for monitoring and storage.
  • USB port allows PC connection as a virtual COM port.
  • Isolated USB interface: 2 kV
  • Two inputs, configurable as analog (4 to 20 mA/ 0 to 10 V) or digital
  • Two configurable RS-485 interfaces (baud rate, parity and stop bits
  • One RS-485 is always a Modbus master and the other can be set as master or slave
  • RS-485 baud rate from 1200 to 115200 bps
  • Comes with Reverse SMA female antenna and mini USB cable
  • Certification: CE, ANATEL

Firmware Update Procedure:

Please go to the Documents section for download links for the latest Airgate Firmware and DigiConfig

  • Connect AirGate-GPRS to the PC via the USB cable and wait for the drivers automatic installation to finish
  • Access  DigiConfig and configure communication parameters:

    • Serial Port: select the USB port where AirGate-Modbus is connected from the list;
    • Baud Rate: 115200
    • Parity: None
    • Stop Bits: 2
    • Timeout (mSec): 1000
  • On DigiConfig, search for address 255
  • Click on the "Firmware" tab on the "Device Setup" screen

    • Select "Enable firmware update"
    • Click on "Open" and search for the new firmware file (".cbin")
    • Click on the "Apply" button
