Insys ECR

Changing demands requires flexible solutions. Modularity is the answer to this challenge.

Insys ECR

The routers of the ECR series provide all important interfaces for realising extensive applications from remote services to IIoT. Both, the LAN and the LTE variant provide Wi-Fi for operation as an access point for local connection or as a client for integration into an IT infrastructure. The LTE version offers cellular redundancy via dual SIM and fall-back to HSPA and GSM. The ECR is also suitable for easy retrofit of existing plants due to its interfaces RS232 and RS485. The integrated digital I/Os extend the range of applications additionally. This VPN router can be mounted universally like the SCR and suitable for both, switch cabinets and small distribution boxes.

The icom SmartBox, an integrated Linux environment that enables to execute scripts and programs directly on the router, is also included besides the INSYS operating system icom OS.

With this, an ECR router can not only be used for secure remote maintenance and control, but also for acquiring and processing application data within the scope of edge computing. Amongst other things, this permits to monitor the conditions and values of connected devices as well as realise applications like reporting or benchmarking across different plants thanks to a plug & play connection to cloud services.

Main Specification

• Function: Up to 5 IP local networks (LAN) or as WAN with both, DHCPv4 and DHCPv6 clients, with static IP addresses, VLAN incl. tags and trunk ports; SLAAC, router advertiser, own DHCPv4 and DHCPv6 server per IP network; Static routing, configurable routing priority; dynamic routing OSPF, BGP, RIP, RIPv2, RIPng; Net filters: D-NAT, S-NAT, IP/port forwarding, netmapping, DNS relay, dynDNS support; PPPoE for external DSL modem; Dual APN: cellular traffic division across 2 APNs - e.g. for separating payload and management data
• Security: OpenVPN (client and server), IP filters (stateful firewall) also in VPN tunnel, several VPN tunnels in parallel possible, IPsec, GRE (incl. multi-port), DMVPN, PPTP server
• Redundancy: WAN chains: several WAN accesses configurable (prioritised and event-controlled), WAN groups: parallel operation of WAN interfaces or VPNs, several OpenVPN servers, dual SIM for redundancy; provider redundancy when using a multi roaming SIM card
