ABB Tropos Wireless Communication Systems has unveiled the Tropos 1410-DIN industrial automation wireless bridge and mesh router.

The Tropos 1410-DIN, ABB says, is a version of the Tropos 1410 that is suitable for installation in a variety of process control, energy and industrial automation systems. The router can be installed in enclosures using standard DIN rail mounting.

ABB notes that Tropos mesh networks deliver broadband wireless connectivity for machine-to-machine communications. The company adds that the Tropos 1410-DIN enables automation devices to access Tropos networks without the need for external, pole-mounted equipment, and the router can be installed in devices such as programmable logic controllers, remote terminal units, electrical distribution relay cabinets and pad-mounted transformers.

The Tropos 1410-DIN enables automation devices to communicate with other devices and central computing applications, such as SCADA systems, ABB reports. It also allows workers with Wi-Fi-equipped laptops or tablets to communicate with automation devices wirelessly.
