Backplane Systems Technology introduces MPL’s µGUARD multipurpose firewall, router or access point
for rugged environments.
The rugged µGUARD comes
with the assurance of long-term availability, with the design optimised for
ultra-low power consumption, small size (SwaP-C), high flexibility and extended
temperature operation (-40¡C up to +85¡C).
The µGUARD can be
expanded with up to 10 additional manageable LAN ports. It is available as
OpenFrame on a cooling plate to be mounted in existing housings or cabinets,
and in a standard industrial housing for wall or DIN-rail mounting.
A TX2FX module can
be integrated if the application requires fibre. Alternatively, MPL offers a
firewall solution with RJ45, M12, or MIL-38999 connectors. The standard operating
temperature range is -20¡C to +60¡C with an optional extended temperature range
of -40¡C up to +85¡C.
The ÅÂºGUARD comes
preinstalled with an adapted version of OpenWRT. This Linux based embedded
distribution provides all functionality required for operation as IPV4 and/or
IPV6 firewall and router.
Key features also
include wide input voltage range of 8-36VDC; 1 Gbit Ethernet ports (10/100/1000
Mbit support); 2 x mPCIe slot for WLAN, GPRS, LTE, mSATA SSD; 1 x M.2 slot
