As the successor to the well-established NB1600, the new NB1601 industrial router offers the key technologies for stationary applications requiring reliable Internet access.
As a special feature, the NB1601 offers four Ethernet ports, which are extremely configurable. Each port can be configured either as a LAN or as a WAN port.

For the application as a device server, the router also has one isolated binary digital input and relay output for connecting sensors and actuators. The NB1601 comes with an USB port which allows fast configuration and firmware updates via memory stick. An optional extension slot (EXT 2) allows to extend the system with additional interfaces RS-232, RS-485, CAN and IBIS.

The durable metal housing suitable for DIN rail mounting in combination with the supported temperature range -40 °C to 70 °C provides the robustness enabling the device for use in industrial environments.

It's possible to run customer applications in a LXC Container.  In addtion, a SDK environment allows to implement all types of applications with simple scripts. Data preprocessing can be done directly on the router, thus saving an additional IPC.

The supplied router software is based on well proven components including an embedded Linux operating system and a wide range of communication and routing protocols as OSPF, BGP and RSTP. With its powerful VPN protocol suite, remote devices can easily and securely be connected.
Other features include Quality of Service (QoS) for an efficient data exchange, E-Mail for alarming and notifications, a web server and RADIUS authentication.
