The advantage of using wireless data transmission module in industrial control system

Category : 产品文章

Data transmission can be simply divided into two major types: wired (including the installation of optical cables, cables or leased telecommunication lines) and wireless (including the establishment of dedicated wireless data transmission system or the borrowing of CDPD, GSM, CDMA and other public network information platforms).

 

 

In comparison, the wireless data transmission mode with wireless data transmission module has the following advantages over other modes. The following describes the advantages of the wireless data transmission mode with wireless data transmission module compared with the wired communication mode.

 

 

1. Wireless communication is cheap

 

The establishment of wired communication means must erect cables or excavate cable trenches, which requires a lot of manpower and material resources. The use of wireless data stations to establish a dedicated wireless data transmission mode does not require the erection of cables or trenching, but only the connection of wireless data stations at each terminal and the erection of antennas at the appropriate height. Compared with the wireless data transmission module to establish a dedicated wireless data transmission mode, saving manpower and material resources, investment is quite economical.

 

 

Of course, in some short-range data communication systems, wireless communication is no cheaper than wired, but sometimes the actual field environment is difficult to wire, customers will choose wireless communication according to the needs of the field environment.

 

 

2. The construction period of wireless communication is short

 

When within a few kilometers to tens of kilometers distance to a remote site connection communication each other, with the method of cable, must set up a long cable long in cable trench, or mining may need several months the project cycle time, and with digital module build special-purpose wireless data transmission way, only need to set up appropriate height of antenna, the project cycle, only need a few days or weeks can, by contrast, can quickly establish a wireless way communication link, shorten the project cycle.

 

 

3. Good adaptability of wireless communication

 

Limitations of wired communication is too large, in case of some special applications, such as mountains, lakes, forests and other special geographical environment and the application of moving object, such as wiring difficult environment, to the wired network wiring project has extremely strong further reading.in, wireless data transmission module and establishing special will not be restricted by the wireless data transmission mode, so in wireless data transmission module build special-purpose wireless data transmission way to more extensive adaptability than the wired communications have better, almost without being limited by the geographical environment.

 

 

4. Good scalability of wireless communication

 

After users set up a communication network, new devices are often added for the needs of the system. If adopt the way of the cable, need to wiring, construction more troublesome, but also could undermine the original communications lines, but if the special set up by adopting the wireless digital radio wireless data transmission way, just put the new devices connected to wireless digital radio can realize the system expansion, in contrast with better extensibility.

 

 

5. Wireless communication equipment maintenance is easier to achieve

 

The maintenance of wired communication link requires the inspection along the line. In case of failure, it is difficult to find out the fault point in time. However, the establishment of dedicated wireless data transmission mode by adopting wireless data transmission module only requires the maintenance of data transmission module.

Industrial-grade 4G router TCP/IP network architecture

1. Layering of TCP/IP network system

 

TCP/IP (TransmissionControlProtocol/InternetProtocol), transmission control protocol/Internet protocol. It was developed by the defense advanced research projects agency in the 1970s, and was later integrated into UNIX and popularized. It emerged in the 1980s as the Internet’s communications protocol. With the continuous growth of the Internet, TCP/IP protocol also continues to develop, not only in the wide area network is widely used, in the LAN industry 4G wireless router TCP/IP protocol has replaced other protocols and become widely used protocol. Nowadays, TCP/IP protocol has become a common and universal network interconnection standard.

 

 

TCP/IP protocol is a layered protocol developed by the industrial 4G wireless router based on the OSI reference model.

 

 

The TCP/IP protocol hierarchy is basically designed according to the OSI reference model. Only in three layer on the layers of the TCP/IP protocol to the application layer of the OSI reference model, the presentation layer and session layer and unified into a single application layer, so that the 4 g industrial router function such as the representation of a data format, the establishment of the session and application software more closely together, compared with the OSI reference model is more practical and simple. Although we used to call the industrial GPRS router TCP/IP protocol, in fact it is not a single protocol, but a set of protocols, called the industrial CDMA router TCP/IP protocol family.

 

 

In the TCP/IP protocol family, each protocol is responsible for a part of the network data transmission and provides some aspect of the service for data transmission in the 4G router network. It is because of these protocols that work at all levels that the entire TCP/IP protocol family can effectively work together.

 

 

2. The characteristics and advantages of TCP/IP network system

 

 

In the long-term development process, 3G wireless router IP gradually replaced other networks. Here’s a simple explanation. 3G router IP transmits common data. Data can be used for any purpose and can easily replace data previously transmitted over proprietary data networks. Here’s a common process:

 

 

A proprietary network is developed for a specific purpose. If it works well, users will accept it.

 

 

To facilitate the provision of IP services, they are often used to access E-mail or chat, often through proprietary network tunneling in some way. The LTE router tunneling approach may initially be very ineffective.

The use of industrial wireless routers

Category : 其他

Industrial-grade wireless router adopts high performance 32-bit industrial-grade ARM9 communication processor, which is widely used in finance, electric power, postal, water conservancy, environmental protection, meteorology and other industries.

 

Industrial router is mainly used in intelligent transportation, environmental monitoring, security monitoring, security, wireless mobile detection, industrial data transmission, the financial industry, power industry, water conservancy industry, etc., support – 30 ℃ + 75 ℃ temperature, wide application. And civil routing is mainly family indoor use, so the adaptability to environment requirement is not high, the temperature only for 0 ~ 55 ℃.

 

The industrial router adopts rugged industrial appearance design, IP30 protection, built-in high-performance industrial-grade 32-bit communication processor wireless module, with embedded real-time operating system as the software support platform, and can be connected to serial devices, Ethernet devices or WIFI devices at the same time.

 

Support APN/VPDN private network, at the same time the device has IPSEC, PPTP, L2TP, GRE, OPENVPN VPN connection, with VPN client, server and other functions. Civil route even some do not have firewall, data security is low.

 

Why are industrial-grade routers so popular

 

In the industrial environment, due to the increasing demand for transmission speed and data volume, industrial-grade products are widely used to ensure more high-speed and smooth data exchange. After careful analysis of today’s connector supply market, shenzhen e-lins is an M2M wireless communication backbone enterprise, which mainly provides: industrial wireless router, wireless data terminal,GPRS DTU,CDMA DTU,3G router,4G router, etc.

 

Manufacturers are struggling to resist the onslaught of wireless technology. Wireless technology is now used in PCS and communications devices, and is favored in industry, medicine and automobiles. Wi-fi and bluetooth are popular; Wireless USB, ZigBee and RFID are gaining momentum, especially in consumer electronics, PC and communications.

 

The strong growth of the global mobile Internet device market, which is forecast to grow at a compound annual rate of up to 167 per cent over the next five years, will spur further adoption of wi-fi, bluetooth and ultra-broadband.

 

Despite the impact of wireless technology, PLC, industrial router, switch, DTU equipment and RTU equipment are still the trend of the future.

 

Industrial-grade wireless routers

 

As an industrial-grade router, the industrial-grade 4G router is more powerful than the ordinary household router in many aspects. Generally speaking, the well-known industrial-grade 4G router has the following advantages in the use process.

 

1. High stability

 

One of the major advantages of industrial-grade 4G routers is their high stability in data transmission and reception. It USES high performance industrial-grade wireless modules and industrial-grade high stability and high precision components, so that it can resist outdoor harsh environment without data transmission interruption or loss.

 

2. Fast data transmission and processing

 

Compared with ordinary routers, industrial-grade 4G routers use high-performance CPU processors, so they can transmit and process data several times faster than ordinary routers. They can satisfy more people to connect to the network at the same time, and the transmission distance is longer and the coverage is larger.

 

3. Powerful functions

 

Advanced industrial-grade 4G routers have more powerful functions than ordinary routers. For the average home router, the function is simple as long as it can connect to the network normally. But for industrial control industry, routers need more functions to run normally. Industrial-grade 4G routers have corresponding functions to meet the needs of different fields. If other special functions are needed, you can also choose customized products.

 

The main advantages of the industrial-grade 4G router are its high stability, fast data processing speed and powerful functions. In addition, the number of ports it provides and the strong wireless signal receiving ability are also its own advantages. Because industrial-grade 4G routers are often used in high-end fields or in complex outdoor conditions, they must have more functions and advantages to meet people’s needs.

Cascade and stack of industrial-grade 4G routers

Category : 技术相关

The most basic star Ethernet architecture, the actual star enterprise network may be much more complex than this. This renaturation is not only reflected in how high-end network equipment, how complex configuration, more importantly, the performance of network switching level is more complex. Industrial routers and firewalls in enterprise networks typically require only one, but industrial 4G routers are usually more than one (except for small networks with around 20 users). If you have a large number of users, say hundreds or even thousands, you will have to rely on cascading or stack extension connections from industrial-grade routers.

 

But cascading and stack technologies are also different, and their scope of application is different. Industrial 4G router cascade refers to the expansion of the whole network router and the whole network connection router through switching ports, which not only solves the problem of insufficient port number of a single industrial LTE router, but also solves the connection between the client and network equipment far away from the computer room. Because single-segment switched double-stranded Ethernet cables can reach 100 meters, each cascade of industrial-grade LTE routers can extend the distance by 100 meters.

 

However, this does not mean that it can be arbitrarily cascade, because the line is too long, on the one hand, the attenuation of the signal on the line is more, on the other hand, after all, the lower the level of industrial network router or sharing a port available bandwidth of the superior switch, the more the level, the lower the available bandwidth of the final client will be (although you may be using a 100-megabyte industrial network router), which has a great impact on the network connection performance, so from a practical point of view, it is recommended to deploy the industrial router of the whole network at most, that is, the core industrial router – second level industrial router – third level all-network router.

 

The level 3 here does not mean that only three industrial level full netcom routers can be allowed, but only three levels from the level. The ports used for hierarchical connection can be specialized UpLink ports or ordinary switching ports. Some full-netcom industrial routers have dedicated cascading (UpLink) ports, but some don’t. If there is a specialized cascading port, it is best used because its bandwidth is usually wider than that of a normal switching port, further ensuring the bandwidth of a lower-level, all-network-enabled, industrial-grade router. If not, it can only be cascaded through normal switching ports.

The difference between 4G router and 4G DTU

Category : 技术相关

4G industrial wireless router and 4G DTU are also used for wireless network data transmission of industrial equipment. But there are also significant differences between the two, and the differences between the two are mainly from the appearance of the interface, the use of methods and the application environment.

 

1. Appearance interface the appearance interface of 4G router usually has a network port, which provides wireless networking functions for the network port devices and requires the network port devices to actively access the center to complete data transmission. In general, 4G router will provide a variety of network interface modes of WAN port, LAN or freely switched WAN/LAN port, which can be customized to match the interface according to the connection mode in the project.

 

The external interface of 4G DTU generally only provides the networking mode of serial port interface. 4G DTU is mainly used for two-way transmission between serial port data and IP data. And some projects need to use both the network port, but also need to use the serial port how to do? In the current era of rapid technological development, 4G router and 4G DTU function have been integrated.

 

2. Methods 4G router can be used to convert Ethernet and fieldbus communication protocols. Only the IP address specified by 4G router needs to be set in the terminal device as the gateway. If the specified IP address (or the specified IP address segment) is not set, the communication function cannot be implemented. The primary purpose of 4G DTU is to achieve dial-up, not gateway in the real sense. For example, 4G DTU can be used as a new network device after dialing into the terminal device, and the terminal device address can use this 4G DTU binding address.

 

3. 4G router in the application environment usually has VPN/APN function and private network encryption. In addition, industrial 4G router with WIFI function is suitable for outdoor WIFI wireless signal coverage projects and similar public transport WIFI and mall WIFI sharing projects. However, 4G DTU is applied in the field terminal with scattered transmission distance and high data communication rate, so the real-time performance of 4G DTU can meet the requirements of most industrial fields and is usually used for data acquisition and monitoring system. Such as charging pile remote monitoring system, environmental monitoring system, real-time monitoring of energy consumption, dam water conservancy project monitoring application.

 

4. Data access interface of terminal equipment

4 g router provides one network interface of data access, terminal equipment needs only the IP address of the mouth to the 4 g router in the network as a gateway to the IP address of the terminal device must use specified or specify the IP address in the address period, 4 g router to specify the server hostname or IP address of the IP address of the server host for data exchange, and all the other 4 g router is not set between the address of the can’t communicate.

 

5. 4 g DTU data access generally also provides a serial port or network interface, but their use is used to dial, not used to do in the true sense of the gateway, such as serial interface 4 g DTU after completion of the access terminal dial-up, 4 g DTU as terminal equipment of a new network equipment, terminal equipment address using the new network equipment binding address; The 4G DTU of the network interface is similar to the ADSL of telecommunications, which requires the device to complete a dial-up action.

 

6. IP address used by the terminal device

The IP address used by terminal devices using 4G routers is any IP address that can be set by itself or in the IP address segment, which is also different from the IP address assigned by the UIM card.

The IP address used by terminal devices using 4G DTU is generally the IP address assigned by UIM card dialing (which is specified by 3A).

 

7. Transmission security of terminal equipment

Terminal devices using 4G routers must use the specified IP address, and any other address cannot communicate. After the data of the terminal device passes through the 4G router, the content transmitted through the wireless network is encrypted. Generally, the data transmitted in the intercepted wireless network cannot be decrypted, and the encrypted data can only be decrypted correctly by the designated communication server. At the same time, there is a unique corresponding serial number and other key processing for all data. 4G router guarantees that the terminal device data will not be replayed or resent.

Using 4 g DTU terminal device using IP address would not have such restrictions, so just can assign IP addresses can and to communicate with the server system, terminal equipment data after 4 g DTU, use the wireless network to transmit the contents of the general only through IP head processing, intercept wireless network transmission of data simply remove header information can speak transmission data display; At the same time, the data are not processed accordingly. 4G DTU may lead to the replay or retransmission of wireless data, which will lead to abnormal system, thus causing potential security risks.

 

8. Wireless access security

Using 4 g router data exchange is using a wireless router and communication between the server to establish the safety of the tunnel, all of the data exchange can be to end (terminal) to end (server), and any other middle to end data are cannot communicate effectively, that is to say, at the ends of the wireless network provider will not be able to enter any system.

4G DTU data exchange USES the data exchange process within the wireless network provider, which enables the wireless network provider to easily access any system at both ends of the communication.

 

9. Anti-interference of terminal equipment

Core system USES 4 g router is embedded operating system, only can use very little data port, and the relationship between the terminal equipment is only a routing, so terminal equipment cannot reach the other end, even not be able to access other terminal equipment of the same type, even if there is a terminal device is controlled by a virus or by an outsider, is only affect the a terminal device, the other is not affected.

Terminal devices using 4G DTU are related to 4G DTU and can easily access other terminal devices. If one terminal device is controlled by a virus or an outsider, all terminal devices and the central server system will be seriously threatened.

 

10. Equipment status monitoring

4G router can monitor the status at the same time, and basically know where the problem is and the corresponding solutions through log information.

When using 4G DTU, the status monitoring cannot be carried out, so when encountering problems, it will take much trouble or trouble to check.

 

11. server network routing Settings

When using 4G router to access the terminal device, it is necessary to add a 4G router from the server to the terminal device and use the communication server as the gateway, thus reducing the complexity of the network.

When using 4G DTU to access the terminal device in the server, it is to add a route to the terminal device in the server with the access interface of the wireless network provider as the gateway (or related route).

 

12. Anti-interference of server network

When using 4G router, the data transmission must conform to the preset regulations, otherwise, the communication cannot be carried out correctly, reducing the possibility of unnecessary network traffic. At the same time, according to the sent serial number and other key processing, to ensure that the server data will not be replay or resend.

4G DTU does not carry out relevant filtering during data transmission, so other machines can directly send some illegal information to the device terminal through the network. Meanwhile, 4G DTU increases unnecessary network traffic. At the same time, the data is not processed accordingly, which may lead to the replay or retransmission of wireless data, which will lead to the abnormal system, thus causing security risks.

 

13. Data compression and transmission

4G routers can compress large packets before transmitting, thus reducing network traffic, increasing network bandwidth and improving data transmission efficiency (except for images and images with high compression ratio).

4G DTU generally does not compress data during data transmission.

 

14. Processing of exchange data

Communication server is the core of 4G router, so there must be one host installed on the center server side for 4G router to communicate with. All data exchanged between devices must be encrypted, decrypted, verified and routed by it. There are no other intermediate servers in 4G DTU, but directly connect to the center server.

The similarities and differences between industrial 4G router and industrial switch

Category : 技术相关

1. definition of industrial 4G router and industrial switch

 

Industrial 4G router:

 

Industrial 4G router is a network device responsible for path finding. It provides users with communication by finding the least communication from multiple paths in the interconnection network. Industrial 4G router has two typical functions: data channel function and control function. The functions of data channel include forwarding decision, backplane forwarding and output link scheduling, etc. The control function is usually implemented by software, including information exchange, system configuration and system management between the router and the neighboring industry 4G router. Industrial 4G routers are used to connect multiple logically separate networks. The industrial 4G router USES the routing table to select the path for data transmission. The routing table contains the list of network addresses and the distance between each address. The industrial 4G router USES the routing table to find the correct path of the packet from the current location to the destination address. The industrial 4G router USES the least time algorithm or the optimal path algorithm to adjust the path of information transmission. If one network path fails or becomes blocked, the industrial 4G router can choose another path to ensure the normal transmission of information. Industrial 4G routers can convert data formats and become necessary devices for network interconnection between different protocols.

 

Industrial 4G routers use path searching protocol to obtain network information, and use path searching algorithm and criterion based on “path searching matrix” to select the optimal path. According to the OSI reference model, an industrial 4G router is a network layer system. Industrial 4G routers are divided into single-protocol industrial 4G router and multi-protocol industrial 4G router.

 

The Internet is made up of a variety of networks, of which industrial 4G routers are a very important part. Intranet to be incorporated into the Internet and serve as Internet service, industrial 4G router is an indispensable component, and the configuration of industrial 4G router is also relatively complex.

 

Industrial Switch:

 

Industrial switch is a device that expands the network and provides more connection ports for the sub-network to connect more computers. With the development of the communications industry and the advancement of the informatization of the national economy, the network exchange market has been rising steadily. It features high cost ratio, high flexibility, relatively simple and easy to implement. Therefore, Ethernet technology has become the most important LAN networking technology, network switch has become the most popular switch. The switch can be recognized based on MAC address, and can complete the function of packaging and forwarding packet network equipment. An industrial switch can “learn” the MAC address and store it in the internal address table, enabling the data frame to go directly from the source address to the destination address by establishing a temporary switching path between the originator of the data frame and the target receiver. If the network utilization is over 40% and the collision rate is over 10%, the industrial switch can help you solve a few problems. Industrial switches with 100Mbps fast Ethernet and 10Mbps Ethernet ports can run in full duplex mode and can establish dedicated 20Mbps to 200Mbps connections.

 

2. Similarities and differences between industrial 4G routers and industrial switches

 

Similarity

 

(1) “exchange” is a word with a wide range of meanings. When it is used to describe the devices in the second layer of data network, it actually refers to a bridging device; When it is used to describe the third layer of the data network, it refers to a routing device. That is, both industrial switches and industrial 4G routers can be used to exchange network devices, but at different levels.

 

(2) Internet access. It’s all about extending the network.

 

Differences

 

(1) The first industrial switch worked at the OSI/RM open architecture’s data link layer (layer 2), while the industrial 4G router was initially designed to work at the OSI model’s network layer. Since the industrial switch works at the OSI layer 2 (data link layer), it works simpler, while the industrial 4G router works at the OSI layer 3 (network layer), which yields more protocol information, and the industrial 4G router makes smarter forwarding decisions.

 

(2) different industrial switches based on different objects for data forwarding use physical address or MAC address to determine the destination address for data forwarding. Industrial 4G routers, on the other hand, use the ID Numbers (i.e. IP addresses) of different networks to determine the addresses for data forwarding. IP addresses are implemented in software that describe the network on which the device is located, and sometimes these third-tier addresses are also known as protocol addresses or network addresses. MAC addresses are typically hardware-owned, assigned by network card manufacturers, and have been solidified into network CARDS, which are generally immutable. IP addresses are usually assigned automatically by the network administrator or the system.

 

(3) traditional industrial switches can only divide the conflict domain and cannot divide the broadcast domain. Industrial 4G routers can segment broadcast domains. A network segment connected by an industrial switch still belongs to the same broadcast domain, and broadcast packets are spread across all network segments connected by an industrial switch, in some cases leading to communications advocacy and security vulnerabilities. Network segments connected to industrial 4G routers are assigned different broadcast domains, and broadcast data does not pass through industrial 4G routers.

 

Although the industrial switch above the third layer has VLAN function and can divide the broadcast domain, the communication between sub-broadcast domains is not possible, and the communication between them still needs the industrial 4G router.

 

(4) industrial 4G routers provide firewall services, which only forward packets of specific addresses, do not transmit packets that do not support routing protocol, and the transmission of target network packets for knowledge, thus preventing broadcast storms.

Classification of 4G industrial routers

Category : 技术相关

There are many types of 4G industrial routers, which can be divided into different categories from different perspectives. Different types of 4G industrial routers can be used in different environments. The following sections classify the 4G industrial routers from different perspectives.

According to the performance

From the perspective of performance, 4G industrial routers can be divided into linear router and non-linear router.

The so-called wire speed router can transmit freely according to the transmission medium bandwidth, basically without discontinuity and delay. The specific calculation method is the same as that of the switch line speed backplane bandwidth. A wire-speed router is a high-end router with very high port bandwidth and data forwarding capability that forwards packets at the media rate.

Non-wire-speed routers are mid – to low-end routers, but some new wire-access routers also have wire-speed capabilities. The performance of router is mainly affected by CPU performance. If the CPU performance is high, the 4G industrial router is more likely to be a high-performing wire-speed router.

Speed is generally not a measure of a router, and data throughput is one of the references used to measure a router’s maximum data throughput. The routers with the capacity of the rear plates of 4G industrial routers greater than 40Gbps are called high-grade routers. The routers with the capacity of the rear plates between 25Gbps and 40Gbps are called midrange routers, while those with the capacity lower than 25Gbps are considered as low-grade routers. This kind of dividing way is not so absolute, specific parameter needs to make distinguishing according to each manufacturer specific parameter.

According to the structure of the points

The 4G industrial router can be divided into modular router and non-modular router according to the structure Angle.

Modular routing generally only provides basic routing function when leaving the factory. Its interface type and partial extension function are configured according to the actual needs of users. Users can choose corresponding modules according to the network type they need to connect. Different modules can also provide different connectivity and management capabilities. For example, the vast majority of modular routers allow users to choose network interfaces, VPNS, firewalls and other functions, most of which are modular routers.

Routers H685/H700/H720/H750/H820/H820Q/H820QO  from E-Lins are all modular router, can meet the requirements from all over the world.

Non-modular routers are mostly low-end routers, which are mostly used in civilian environments. Primarily used to connect small business customers within homes or isps, supporting virtual private network protocols such as SLIP, PPP, PPTP, and IPSec. These protocols to run on each port, such as ADSL will increase home broadband availability, which will increase the burden of accessing routers. In the future, such router ports will run multiple protocols while avoiding the telephone switched network.

According to the function points

The 4G industrial router is divided into general router and special router. The common civilian router is the general router, that is, the router that can normally use the routing function under the general environment, and there is no other special requirement scenario.

The special router optimizes the routing interface, hardware and so on to realize a certain function. For example, the foreign trade special router changes the local IP through the special router, which can also quickly access some foreign trade stations in China, which is more convenient.

According to the interface points

4G industrial routers can support SDH stm-1 interface, SDH stm-4 interface and SDH stm-16 interface. At present, the router supporting SDH stm-64 interface is high-end 4G industrial router. However, other interfaces are relatively weak, among which stm-1 has two types of optical interface and electrical interface. Stm-1 electrical interface is suitable for local situations where the interference signal is weak. The light interface is usually used for stm-4, stm-16 and stm-64.

according to the perspective of the object of use

The 4G industrial routers can be divided into core router (core level), distribution router (enterprise level) and access router (home level) according to the perspective of the object of use.

The core router, which is the router that forwards packets to the host computer in the network (but not between networks), is the key device to realize Interner network interconnection with other levels of routers. Often used by telecom operators or isps. The throughput of core router is larger, and the requirement of speed and reliability is higher. In order to obtain high reliability, the network system generally adopts traditional redundant technology such as hot backup, dual power supply and dual data path, so that the reliability of backbone router is not a problem.

Distributed routers are used to connect multiple logically separate networks because there are many connected objects, the system is relatively simple, and the data traffic is relatively small. In addition to connecting different networks, distribution routers also need to choose smooth and rapid short-cuts to improve the communication speed, reduce the network communication load, save system resources while improving the unimpeded rate, and maximize the benefit of the network system.

The access router is mainly used for network interconnection in the small local area network. It is often used in the case of small area and simple network environment such as home, small enterprise or net bar.
