The Digi Utility Communication Hub gives utilities and energy service providers a secure, reliable 4G LTE connection for Distribution Automation and Metering applications.
Each hub contains a Digi TransPort® WR21, Digi’s 3G/4G LTE enterprise router, with two Ethernet ports and a softwareselectable RS-485 connection, housed in an IP66 polycarbonate enclosure. Within the enclosure, a battery provides backup power and an DIN rail and auxiliary power support 3rd party devices connected to the WR21.
The Utility Communication Hub is perfect for communicating with C&I meters and meter banks, recloser and switch controllers, substation equipment, pressure stations, and other utility and industrial infrastructure assets.
Digi TransPort 4G LTE routers can communicate with any meter or controller with an Ethernet or serial port. Known compatibility with GE, Elster, Landis & Gyr, Schneider, Jemstar and Shark meters.
