Future-proof low power mobile wireless standards
The new Simatic RTU3041C features an integrated modem for connection to LTE-M and NB-IoT cellular networks and GPS functionality. Both future-proof LPWA (Low Power Wide Area, network protocol) mobile wireless standards are explicitly designed for low power operation and IoT applications. They support long ranges, while also ensuring better network coverage and building penetration. In addition, they have a high level of energy efficiency and support functions for the further optimization of current consumption. The eDRX (Extended Discontinuous Reception) power saving function can be used to reduce energy consumption, depending on application requirements and support from the network operator.
