AirLink RV50, RV50X – Low Power Cellular Gateway

Industrial Grade, LTE-Advanced Performance, Low Power, Industrial LTE Gateway.

AirLink® RV50

The AirLink® RV50 is the industry’s lowest power and most rugged LTE gateway. Simple to install and easy to manage, the RV50 industrial gateway is designed to connect critical assets and infrastructure. Ideal for industrial-grade applications in energy, utilities and smart-city infrastructure, the RV50 provides real-time remote connectivity for SCADA, distribution management systems and metering. With the lowest power consumption available on the market, the RV50 dramatically reduces infrastructure costs when running on battery or solar power, and provides programmability to enable edge computing applications, using the ALEOS Application Framework (AAF).

The AirLink® RV50X adds LTE Advanced capabilities, supporting an extensive range of LTE bands worldwide, including Band 28 and Band 12, and delivering up to 300 Mbps downlink speeds.

Features

  • LTE-Advanced performance at 2G power consumption – uses less than 1 watt
  • Ideal for solar-powered applications
  • Ruggedized, industrial grade form factor
  • Enables edge computing applications with ALEOS Application Framework (AAF)
  • Remote, secure network management in the cloud or in the enterprise

Rugged Design for Demanding Environments

The Raven RV50 is the most rugged AirLink gateway ever built. Designed to withstand harsh industrial conditions, it is capable of surviving 5V brownouts and spikes from -600 VDC to 200 VDC.

Certified as Class I Div 2, it is ideal for hazardous environments. The die cast aluminium housing is sealed to meet IP64 for resistance to dust and water ingress. The Raven RV50 is tested to meet and exceed the MIL-STD-810G specification for shock, vibration, temperature and humidity. The built-in power supply protection make it suitable for harsh electrical environments such as compressors, generators, and excavators.

Ultra-Low Power Consumption

The Raven RV50 offers best-in-class power consumption combined with LTE performance, and is optimized for solar applications. It is the industry’s only 4G gateway with 2G power consumption, operating at 900 mW in idle mode. For 2G and 3G deployments migrating to LTE, the Raven RV50 will work with existing power infrastructure, eliminating the need to invest in replacement solar panels. Standby Mode provides additional protection for batteries by dropping power consumption to 53 mW, and can be triggered by timers, low voltage detection or I/O.

Simplified Deployment

The Raven RV50 is the first industrial LTE gateway to offer a single product variant for North American network operators, and a single product variant for international network operators. The Raven RV50 supports network operator switching—automatic configuration of the radio, based on the SIM—providing versatility and simplicity when changing between network operators at any time.
