WLAN Access Point and Safe Gateway into the IoT

With its robust design and reliable data transmission the NM50 is an ideal gateway solution for vehicle-to-vehicle or vehicle-to-land communication in safety-critical environments of the IoT.

Wireless Access Point and Safe Gateway

BLUE BELL, Pa. September 2015 - The NM50 is a maintenance-free WLAN access point for connecting networks in demanding railway and automotive applications. Its robust design and reliable data transmission make the NM50 an ideal gateway solution for vehicle-to-vehicle or vehicle-to-land communication in safety-critical environments of the IoT.

  • Freescale PowerPC QorIQ P1013, 800 MHz
  • 2 Gigabit Ethernet ports on M12 connectors
  • Up to 6 antennas on RP-TNC connectors
  • Various wireless functions and configurable firewall
  • 1 USB 2.0 type A port, 1 USB 2.0 type B port
  • Diversity of the signal reception
  • Compliant to EN 50155 (railway) and ISO 7637-2 (E-mark for automotive)

Robust and Flexible Gateway Solution

The NM50 is compliant to EN 50155 and ISO 7637-2 (E-mark for automotive), perfectly fulfilling the requirements for use in modern public transportation. As a member of MEN’s robust and flexible box PC family the NM50 allows a fast time-to-market for cost-effective IoT applications.

Two reliable WLAN modules provide high-speed internet and local data connection to multiple WLAN compatible devices. A configurable firewall protects WLAN clients and supports secure and uninterrupted network connectivity.

Two Gigabit Ethernet ports available on M12 connectors secure a redundant upstream connection to a local server, or downstream to other access points in a network, to extend coverage and increase availability of service. Up to six possible antenna interfaces (four at the front side, two at the back) via robust RP-TNC connectors enable redundant and continuous signal reception.

The NM50 electronics are based on a low-power Freescale QorIQ Power PC CPU and are well protected by a conduction-cooled and robust IP30 aluminum housing. In addition, the NM50 is designed for operation at temperatures from -40 to +85°C.

With its robust design, the configurable firewall, various wireless functions and the reliable and secure data transmission the NM50 is an ideal device for demanding wireless applications in harsh environments.
