Sparkling Test Performance: ZENEC Infotainer Z-E2060 for VW T5

Sparkling Test Performance: ZENEC Infotainer Z-E2060 for VW T5

ZENEC Z-E2060: Infotainer for VW T5 tested

The triumphal march of the vehicle-specific ZENEC E>GO Series continues. Specially developed for the VW T5 Multivan and California, the new Infotainer Z-E2060 is another really successful model in the product range of the Swiss multimedia specialist ZENEC. The German Car & HiFi trade magazine has now thoroughly tested the „Bulli Specialist“ in issue 01/2019. „A great entertainment solution for the VW T5“, is the enthusiastic verdict of the trade journalists, awarding the Z-E20160 the „Highlight“ accolade.

PERFECT FIT FOR VW T5 MULTIVAN
As regards vehicle integration the Z-E2060 has already convinced the testers right down the line. ZENEC’s new infotainer integrates not only perfectly in the instrument panel of the latest Bulli, but with its comprehensive features and functionality is also perfectly tailored to the VW T5 – including all electrical connections. „The CAN interface enables communication with the onboard vehicle electronics“, say the journalists of the multimedia device: „functions like steering wheel remote control, parking radar, and climate control are supported by the Z-E2060“.

MULTIMEDIA FOR EXPERTS
With a CD/DVD drive, two USB connections, and the HDMI port the Z-E2060 is optimally equipped with all the multimedia functions, according to the tech journalists. In addition there is the DAB+ tuner for „crystal clear noise-free reception“ of digital radio, as well as many sound tools; for example, the 10-band equalizer and finely adjustable time alignment. „In the test lab the Z-E2060 does not put a foot wrong“, is the verdict of the critical journalists. „Picture quality and sound are also impressive.“

OPTIMAL OPERATION, OPTIMAL PRICING
The journalists agree that the „new“ ZENEC will excite drivers of the Bulli – and not just because of the „attractive“ price. Also the ease of use leaves nothing to be desired for the Car & HiFi testers. „Thanks to the clear menus, hard keys and rotary knobs you soon have the wide range of functions of the Z-E2060 under control. The large 6.5-inch (16.5 cm) capacitive touchscreen is brilliant and reacts promptly at the touch of a finger.“

TWOFOLD NAVIGATION SOLUTION
The Z-E2060 is able to not only use multimedia, but can also be used as a navigation system – SmartLink makes that possible: „This is because the SmartLink function allows the screen content of the smartphone to be mirrored on the ZENEC“, explain the testers. „The apps, including navigation on the mobile phone, can then be controlled from the touchscreen of the ZENEC.“ This is done by simply connecting the Android phone to one of the two USB ports.
But even without SmartLink the ZENEC Infotainer can be upgraded to a navigation device extremely easily. „If you would rather have offline navigation integrated, simply order the Z-EMAP50 software at the same time to turn the ZENEC from a moniceiver into a full-function navitainer“, is the enthusiastic opinion of the testers.

SUMMARY WITH FLYING COLORS
According to the verdict of the tech journalists the Z-E2060 has „mastered the test course with flying colors“. „With the Z-E2060 ZENEC offers the full range of media, communications and navigation features for the popular Bulli VW T5“, states the summary of the well-respected tech journalists. The Z-E2060 is, according to the testers, „a great entertainment solution for the VW T5“.

The brand Zenec stands for pure in-car multimedia. Moniceivers, naviceivers, roof mount and universal monitors sum to a well rounded portfolio of in-car products. Added to that are accessory components like rear view cameras and headphones. All Zenec devices are perfectly compatible with one another.
The Zenec multimedia range is perceived to follow the edge of technology, but also to stand out with an exceptional price/performance value. Yet, quality before quantity is the other important maxim given, Zenec is strictly adhering to.
In 2008, Zenec brought the first E>GO model onto the market, thereby immediately establishing a completely new category of device: the vehicle-specific naviceiver. E>GOs are a perfect fit – visually and technically – in the respective target vehicle, without additional bezels, adapters and hours of installation work. With the new line up 2018 there are E>GOs to fit into over 60 models of vehicle.

Multimedia Giant: ZENEC Infotainer Z-N956 with Huge Display

Equipped with 9″/22.9 cm High Definition touchscreen, the new ZENEC 2-DIN system provides maximum entertainment with the greatest possible ease of use

Multimedia Giant: ZENEC Infotainer Z-N956 with Huge Display

Z-N956: Infotainer with huge display

With the new 9″/22.9 cm HD display infotainer Z-N956, the Swiss multimedia specialist ZENEC has an absolute premium device in its product range: a multimedia system equipped with every refinement for anyone wanting maximum entertainment, maximum comfort, and maximum safety in their car.

RESPONSIVE 9″ HD DISPLAY
Highlight of the new ZENEC infotainer is the big capacitive 9″ / 22.9 cm touchscreen with a tough glass surface and a HD LCD-TFT display with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution. Whether you are looking at videos or maps in the navigation mode – the high definition screen impresses with its natural color rendering, detailed image presentation, high brightness level and large contrast range.

SAFE DRIVING BY EASE OF USE
Especially for infotainers with a large range of functions, the ease of use is an important quality aspect. The highly responsive capacitive touchscreen of the Z-N956 is operated by light swiping and tapping only. Intuitively controlled functions, the logical menu navigation, and the well laid out design with large touch buttons enable safe operation of the system while driving.

ENTERTAINMENT TO SATISFY THE HIGHEST DEMANDS
Ease of use and modern entertainment functions – that is what the new ZENEC 2-DIN infotainer stands for. The integrated DAB+ twin tuner offers digital radio reception with impressive sound quality. Uninterrupted reception is ensured by the DABDAB/DABFM Service Following function.
The Z-N956 has two USB ports that can be used for A/V playback and for connecting iPhones or Android smartphones. In addition a Bluetooth unit provides comfortable hands-free calling and music streaming via A2DP. Also convincing are the sophisticated audio functions of the Z-N956, incorporating a DSP chip with 5-channel time alignment, a 10-band graphic equalizer, as well as an active crossover with high and low-pass filters.

ANDROID AUTO SMARTPHONE INTEGRATION
The Z-N956 is Google Android Auto certified, integrating supported apps of Android smartphones for easiest access and control via device display: for example Google Maps, Spotify, Youtube or huge online music libraries. Upon connection of an Android smartphone, the apps appear on the display of the Z-N956, for most convenient control by touchscreen, or the Google voice command assistant.

NAVIGATE SAFELY – IN PASSENGER CARS AND MOTORHOMES
For the Z-N956 two navigation packages are available that expand the infotainer for specific purposes: the Z-EMAP56 for cars, and the Z-EMAP56-MH suited for motorhomes. Both navigation packages contain digital maps for 47 European countries with 6.5 million Premium POIs. The map data can be updated for 3 years free of charge.
In the case of Z-EMAP56-MH important special functions for motorhomes are provided, such as preconfigured vehicle profiles, the input of vehicle parameters, and a comprehensive camping and motorhome stopover sites database. Of interest for use in motorhomes is the feature whereby up to three rear-view cameras can be connected to the Z-N956 – controlled directly via the CAM soft key. In addition, the Z-N956 can transmit audio signals to external Bluetooth speakers and headphones so that you can also enjoy your music outside your motorhome.

The brand Zenec stands for pure in-car multimedia. Moniceivers, naviceivers, roof mount and universal monitors sum to a well rounded portfolio of in-car products. Added to that are accessory components like rear view cameras and headphones. All Zenec devices are perfectly compatible with one another.

Retrofitting made easy: ZENEC’s license plate camera ZE-RVC55LP

The ZE-RVC55LP from ZENEC is an easy to install rear-view camera that is simply mounted on the license plate frame.

ZENEC ZE-RVC55LP: license plate camera

Can it be so easy to retrofit a rear-view camera? With the ZE-RVC55LP the Swiss multimedia specialist ZENEC now has a flexible license plate camera on the market that can be mounted with just a few steps to the existing license plate frame. The high resolution ZE-RVC55LP can therefore be used as a rear-view or as a front camera.
Equipped with a CMOS sensor that is very sensitive to light, the universal ZE-RVC55LP delivers a detailed, high contrast image, even in poor light conditions and during twilight. For the image output you can choose between a normal or a mirror image. The large horizontal 140° angle of view ensures an excellent overview of what is going on behind the vehicle.
High quality materials and a robust construction guarantee high weather resistance, and hence a long life. Thanks to the special camera housing – built to Protection Class IP69K, the highest standard for water and moisture protection – the ZE-RVC55LP is optimally protected against spray and dust. The wide working temperature range from -30° C to +75° C means the view to the rear is clear at all times, even under extreme temperature and weather conditions.
ZENEC’s new rear-view camera is suitable for all current EU and Swiss plastic license plate frames and, due to the compact construction, can be installed quickly and inconspicuously. A 3-piece system cable (2 x 0.7 m plus 1 x 7 m separable lengths) is also part of the kit.
The ZE-RVC55LP can be connected to all 2-DIN A/V devices (multimedia systems, naviceivers, monitors) that have a rear-view camera input.

The brand Zenec stands for pure in-car multimedia. Moniceivers, naviceivers, roof mount and universal monitors sum to a well rounded portfolio of in-car products. Added to that are accessory components like rear view cameras and headphones. All Zenec devices are perfectly compatible with one another.
The Zenec multimedia range is perceived to follow the edge of technology, but also to stand out with an exceptional price/performance value. Yet, quality before quantity is the other important maxim given, Zenec is strictly adhering to.

Versatile Infotainer: ZENEC Z-E3150 for the AUDI A3

ZENEC’s 2-DIN infotainer for the AUDI A3 combines the latest multimedia functions with optimal in-vehicle integration and can be easily upgraded to a naviceiver

Versatile Infotainer: ZENEC Z-E3150 for the AUDI A3

Z-E3150: Infotainer for AUDI A3

Multimedia specialist ZENEC expands its product range with another vehicle-specific E>GO infotainer: the Z-E3150 from the Essential II Series is the optimal multimedia retrofit for all AUDI A3 8P/8PA models. Top DAB+ radio reception, comprehensive media compatibility and easy smartphone connection – the Z-E3150 is an allrounder that is conveniently controlled from the capacitive touch-sensitive 7″/17.8 cm screen.

PERFECT INTEGRATION IN THE AUDI A3
Radically simpler integration in the specific target vehicle is what distinguishes the E>GO series: a system solution specifically designed for the vehicle. The Z-E3150 is technically and visually tailored to the AUDI A3: due to its specific construction, design of the front control panel and the red/white switchable button illumination it blends in perfectly with the AUDI A3 8P/8PA models. Interfaced with the vehicle electronics via the CAN bus, it supports comfort functions like connection to the driver information system (FIS) or the multifunction steering wheel, and the display of OPS and ECON Climatronic.

MAKES EVERY TRIP MORE ENTERTAINING
Watching DVDs, playing CDs or using a USB stick or smartphone for audio and video playback – no chance of getting bored with so many entertainment options on offer from the Z-E3150. Naturally you can also just listen to radio if you want – in top digital quality. The integrated DAB+ double tuner ensures interference-free reception and boasts Service Following, dynamic station list, MOT Slideshow and DLS text.
A 10-band graphic EQ and the DSP based 5-channel time alignment offer comprehensive settings for optimal adjustment of the sound to personal preferences.

DREAM TEAM: E>GO & ANDROID SMARTPHONES
Thanks to the integrated SmartLink Direct function Android smartphones can be used with the Z-E3150 reliably and directly in any AUDI A3. Simply dock your mobile phone via a USB connection to the E>GO – the screen content of the Android smartphone is then immediately mirrored on the display of the ZENEC infotainer. This enables all apps including the sat nav apps to be accessed without touching the mobile device – that is connected driving in a new dimension.
The Z-E3150 supports the Made for iPod/iPhone functionality of Apple devices. Naturally the E>GO can also use Bluetooth handsfree for conveniently dealing with phone calls via the hands-free system, and streaming music.

Z-E3150: COMFORT AND SAFETY
ZENEC’s new E>GO stands for driving comfort, and enhanced driving safety in the AUDI A3; and not only because of the uncomplicated, intuitive operation of the device while driving. The vehicle status indication shown on the display gives warning of any open doors, open trunk lid or open engine hood, and provides information about the state of the vehicle lighting. Plus there is a cockpit real time display of the actual vehicle data: the tank fill level in liters, the battery voltage, and the outside temperature are clearly presented on the display of the Z-E3150. In addition there are also indications showing if the driver’s seat belt is fastened or the parking brake is applied (depending on the build year of the A3 model).

UPGRADABLE: FROM INFOTAINER TO NAVICEIVER
If the occasional use of sat nav apps via the smartphone is not enough, you can easily upgrade the Z-E3150 with the Z-EMAP50 navigation package, obtainable as an option, to a fully-fledged permanently installed in-car naviceiver. High resolution 3D maps with coverage for 47 European countries and more than 6.5 million Premium POIs, TMC, Text-to-Speech announcement of street names and a host of nav functions make this E>GO the perfect navigator. The maps can be updated for one year free of charge.

The brand Zenec stands for pure in-car multimedia. Moniceivers, naviceivers, roof mount and universal monitors sum to a well rounded portfolio of in-car products. Added to that are accessory components like rear view cameras and headphones. All Zenec devices are perfectly compatible with one another.

One for all: New EMPHASER Speakers for BMW

With the EM-BMW3FR1 component and the EM-BMW3FR2 coaxial EMPHASER now has two top class speakers in its product range that are easy to install in almost any BMW

One for all: New EMPHASER Speakers for BMW

EMPHASER loudspeakers for BMW

If you wish to treat yourself and your BMW to a new speaker system you will be faced with a bewildering choice. Finding a system on the aftermarket that not only produces a convincing sound but is also easy to install is no small undertaking. Two great sounding speakers developed specially for BMW that will convince you with their sound and innovative Plug & Play installation concept have just been added to the product range of the car audio specialist EMPHASER: the EM-BMW3FR1 2-way component unit, and the EM-BMW3FR2 coaxial unit. For lovers of powerful music there is also a pair of OE fit style high performance underseat subwoofers (EM-BMW3SUB).

CLEVER DESIGN
What is special about the new EMPHASERs? Instead of building different systems for different BMW models EMPHASER has designed its new coaxial and component units to fit into almost any current BMW – thanks to the innovative adaptive basket design. Two mounting adaptor rings perfectly suited for the three typical BMW installation variants are supplied with each kit: Simply fit the appropriate mounting ring to the bass or mid-range speaker of the component or coaxial system and install the speaker – finished!
The many years‘ experience of the EMPHASER developers is evident in the design of the new speakers. The low resonance plastic basket not only exhibits torsional stiffness but also increases the efficiency of the driver since the material has no influence on the magnetic field. Consequently more magnetic energy remains where it is needed: in the voice coil air gap. The voice coil is wound on a very light 25 mm aluminum former and firmly affixed to a Nomex spider carefully matched to the moving assembly.

HIGH QUALITY COMPONENTS, GREAT SOUND
The fiber glass cone of the component and coaxial systems offers excellent stability with high damping, making it ideal for dynamic music reproduction free of coloration.
The tweeter of the component system is thoroughly convincing as well. The light 25 mm titanium dome offers a low resonance frequency (Fs) and with it, extends the frequency reproduction for a lower crossover frequency. This provides better staging, whereas the high frequency range is linearized by the low dome weight and a special surround type.
As a tweeter for the coaxial system the 19 mm woven dome is ideal: Its good radiation pattern even at an angle is the best basis for optimal sound from the original installation position in the door. In addition, the diffuser supports staging, giving the sound even more atmosphere.

BASS POWER FOR BMW
The new speaker items for BMW are rounded off by the underseat subwoofer EM-BMW3SUB. The double layer magnet drive and the additional stiff fiberglass cone enable powerful reproduction of bass frequencies with low distortion even at high sound pressure levels. The vehicle-specific design and construction allow installation to be completed in a few minutes.
In many cases the original BMW subwoofer is permanently bonded with the enclosure, making it difficult to remove. The EMPHASER enclosure EM-BMW3SBC does away with such time consuming work. Simply remove the old woofer together with enclosure, and install the EMPHASER sub with its new EM-BMW3SBC housing – finished!

EMPHASER has been a name in the car audio sector for 25 years. The brand has become a well respected brand since middle of the 1990s for its enormously powerful subwoofers of the XTREME series, followed later by the series SPL, Linear-X, Neo-SPL and the state-of-the-art woofer E15NEO-COMP. The present range covers subwoofers, vehicle-specific Plug“N“Play component sets and classic lines of loudspeakers and amplifiers. For 2019 EMPHASER has announced a new series of amplifiers with integrated DSP and Bluetooth audio streaming of utterly compact dimensions, controlled by smartphone app.
EMPHASER products are distributed exclusively through Europe’s largest car media specialist, the Swiss ACR AG.

Small, Good, Nice Price: AXTON’s Subwoofer ATB120 Tested

The new AXTON compact woofer ATB120 has been awarded the ‚Price Tip‘ accolade from the German magazine Car & HiFi (issue 05/2018).

Price Tip: AXTON’s bass box ATB120

Today a subwoofer for a car is expected to be as compact as possible so as to save space and remain inconspicuous when installed in the trunk or the trunk double bottom. But what about the bass performance of a small subwoofer? In issue 05/2018 the magazine Car & HiFi has thoroughly tested the new ATB120 compact woofer from car audio specialist AXTON – and is impressed. In the opinion of these tech journalists the ATB120 makes not only a „proper bass sound“, but also puts on a convincing show with its build quality and the fair price. This everyday compact woofer with a difference therefore gets the ‚Price Tip‘ accolade from Car & HiFi.
Enthusiastically the testers praise the many installation options of the new ATB120, which hardly restricts the usability of the trunk: „The new AXTON ATB120 is light enough to be lifted out of the trunk without any effort; and when onboard it is hardly noticeable. At 13.5 cm high the enclosure is very flat so that it can also be used in the trunk.“
The construction and workmanship of the new AXTON bass reflex box also impress the journalists. This is not only true for the ‚robust‘ 16 mm thick MDF enclosure with a reinforced acoustic baffle and generously sized reflex tunnel. „Together with the neatly made, quality felt cover we have nothing but praise for the build quality“, say the testers „and not just because of the affordable price.“
That goes also for the installed 20 cm woofer with fiber glass cone, 38 mm dual voice coil and large size magnet: „Instead of saving on the driver, AXTON has thankfully decided on a really expensive cone construction.“ But not only that: „Even the driver turns out fullsize and works with a thick ferrite ring.“
But does the ATB120 also produce decent bass? The tech journalists answer this with an emphatic ‚yes‘: „The little AXTON plays amazingly low down in the frequency basement and leaves no desire for more low bass if the music is a normal program of rock or out of the charts.“
The ATB120 scores with its power, and also with its sound quality: „The 20 cm woofer plays really cleanly, the bass never appears fuzzy or soggy. Fast bass lines are reproduced by the minnow with great agility and precision so that the sound quality is fully adequate even for discerning ears.“
„The AXTON ATB120 is a faithful everyday companion for music fans who simply just wish to have a decent bass“, is the final verdict of the tech journalists, awarding the new bass reflex box the ‚Price tip‘ accolade on account of its outstanding price/performance.

The brand AXTON has been popular with car enthusiasts for almost 30 years. AXTON’s products are regularly recognized in trade magazines for their high price performance ratio. The range includes amplifiers and various loudspeakers for car retrofitting: component and coaxial systems, bass boxes, and also compact under seat woofers.

Cohda sets off to Storm the world in 80 days

Cohda sets off to Storm the world in 80 days

The MK5 has unmatched radio performance in harsh outdoor, mobile environments.

Two student-built electric motorbikes undertaking an 80-day around-the-world odyssey are equipped with world-leading vehicle communication technology from Australian company Cohda Wireless.

On Sunday, August 14, STORM Eindhoven, a team of 23 students from Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands, set off with these electric motorbikes on a round-the-world journey.

Aiming to cover 26,000 kilometres in 80 days, the motorbikes contain Cohda MK5 On-Board Units which enable V2X (vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure) communications. As well as monitoring motorbike performance during the journey, Cohda plans to demonstrate how V2X systems can improve vehicle safety and traffic efficiency in cities with V2X infrastructure installed.

Cohda Wireless Vice President of Business Development Bernd Luebben said the company was proud to sponsor this trailblazing event. „We are supplying Cohda MK5 On Board Units for the motorcycles and support vehicles,“ he said.

„Cohda“s MK5 On-Board Units allow real-time communication to ensure the motorbikes perform according to design and meet this demanding schedule. We also plan to support V2X demonstrations in cities such as Shanghai where we have V2X units installed.“

The STORM World Tour began in the southern Netherlands city of Eindhoven last Sunday, starting a route that circumnavigates the northern hemisphere, leaving Europe via Central Asia and then crossing North America before returning to Eindhoven on November 2.
Each electric motorbike has a top speed of 160 km/h and can travel 380 kilometres before requiring a recharge. The student-designed batteries – 24 separate cartridges that can store as much as 28.5 kWh energy – can be replaced by a fully charged battery pack within seven minutes.

Each day, the students will re-charge batteries from the local power grid at companies, universities or homes en route. The team will also take part in events that show the potential of electric mobility.

vosla puts more light on the road

New coil design boosts the luminous efficiency of halogen headlights by up to 120 percent

vosla puts more light on the road

This HB4 bulb puts up to 120 percent more light on the road

vosla GmbH will be unveiling its new bulbs for halogen headlights, offering significantly greater luminous efficiency, at the Automechanika 2016 in Frankfurt. The Plauen (Vogtland region/Germany) company will also be showing its bulbs for signaling lighting in vehicles, which now have greater resistance to vibration.

A special coil design and a modified filling gas for its new „Plus 120“ series now enable vosla to put 120 percent more light on the road, in applications of special importance for road safety: motorists will, for example, be able to see pedestrians and road signs significantly better. vosla is integrating the new technology into its H7, HB3, HB4, H13 and 9007 series of halogen bulbs.

At the Automechanika vosla will in addition be showing – also for the first time – its new „Shockproof“ range of signaling lamps for trucks and buses, featuring greater vibration resistance and thus extending illuminant service-life. vosla uses for these signaling lamps – installed in tail lights and blinkers, for example – an innovative coil material that achieves service-lives longer by up to 100 percent. The benefits for users: greater on-road safety, lower purchasing costs, quicker bulb changing.

Under its „vosla goes global“ motto, this full-range supplier markets its German-developed and German-manufactured products with their – of course! – German quality standards around the world, and is continuously expanding its marketing and service network.

vosLED, one of the first „Edison bulbs“ to feature LED filaments, brought this specialist in automotive lighting systems, special lamps and LED bulbs several internationally acclaimed design awards in 2014 and 2015. vosla also received the distinction of a „Special Mention“ in the „Living“ competition category from the German Design Council in the 2016 German Brand Award competition. The jury in this way acknowledged the company’s impressive launch of the „vosla“ brand.

NetModule NB2800 – Neuer Multimedia Router für Busse

PWLAN und Entertainment im Fokus – neue Möglichkeiten für die Unterhaltung

NetModule NB2800 - Neuer Multimedia Router für Busse

Bern/Niederwangen, 29. Juni 2016 – Der Komunikationsspezialist NetModule AG hebt seine Vehicle Router Familie mit dem NB2800 Media Vehicle Router auf ein neues Level an: Mit seiner E-Mark Zertifizierung ist er das optimale Gerät für Passagier-WLAN und Entertainment sowie für Condition Monitoring und Remote Management im Fahrzeug. Dank seiner leistungsstarken CPU erreicht das Gerät Datenraten von bis zu 1 Gbit/s und ermöglicht Gigabit-Routing. Seine funktionale und robuste Bauart (vibrations- und stoßfest) und die Einsatzmöglichkeit in einem erweiterten Temperaturbereich machen ihn zur idealen Lösung für rauhe Umgebungen im Straßenverkehr.

Ausgestattet mit bis zu zwei 3G/4G Modulen, deren Verbindungen auch gebündelt werden können, lässt sich die nötige Bandbreite auf die Anforderungen der Applikationen anpassen. Speziell bei Entertainment-Anwendungen für die Passagiere trägt ein hoher Datendurchsatz einen massgeblichen Teil zu einer positiven Nutzererfahrung bei. Die Quad-SIM-Funktion und der ausgeklügelte WAN Link Manager ermöglichen Load Balancing und Verbindungen mit mehreren Netzwerkanbietern und maximieren so die Verfügbarkeit. Die WLAN-Abdeckung im Fahrzeug kann mit bis zu zwei Access Points nach neuestem IEEE 802.11ac Standard mit 2×2 MIMO und Beam Forming auf über 800 Mbps gesteigert werden. Über VLANs werden Netzwerke getrennt und dedizierte Kommunikationswege für verschiedene Anwendungen zur Verfügung gestellt. Quality of Service (QoS) ermöglicht das Priorisieren von Datenverkehr und stellt sicher, dass weniger wichtige Tasks solche mit höchster Priorität nicht blockieren.

Unabhängig von der Internetverbindung ermöglicht die integrierte Solid State Disk (SSD) mit bis zu 1 TB Speicherplatz das lokale Speichern von Dokumenten, Bilder-, Audio- und Videodateien sowie eigener Webseiten und schafft so die Voraussetzung für verschiedenste Entertainment-Anwendungen. Zusätzlich besteht eine Auswahl an Erweiterungsschnittstellen wie CAN, RS-232, RS-485, Audio Line In/Out, IBIS oder GNSS mit Dead Reckoning.

Die Software basiert auf Embedded Linux und bewährten Komponenten mit vielen Kommunikationsprotokollen. Konfiguriert wird der NB2800 Router via Webinterface, Kommandozeile oder SNMP. Software Updates und Konfigurationsänderungen erfolgen automatisch oder via Fernzugriff mittels umfassendem API und kundenspezifischen Software-Tools. Die SDK-Umgebung ermöglicht dem Benutzer die Programmierung des Geräts mittels Skriptsprache.
Dank der integrierten Zündungserkennung bleibt der NB2800 noch einige Zeit eingeschaltet, auch nachdem das Fahrzeug abgeschaltet worden ist. Dies ermöglicht das sichere Beenden aller Tasks und Herunterfahren des Systems. Die Zeitverzögerung zwischen Abschalten des Fahrzeugs und des Routers ist konfigurierbar.

NetModules NB2710: Vehicle Router mit vielseitigen Funktionen

Bewährter Router mit CAN-Port, Platz für 6 SIM-Karten und zwei LTE-Module

NetModules NB2710: Vehicle Router mit vielseitigen Funktionen

Bern/Niederwangen, 23. Februar 2016 – NetModules NB2710 Vehicle Router hat sich dank seiner funktionalen und robusten Bauart (vibrations- und stoßfest) und der Einsatzmöglichkeit in einem erweitertem Temperaturbereich im Markt etabliert. Mit E1-Zertifzierung ist er die ideale Kommunikationslösung für Busse und andere Strassenfahrzeuge. Der Router schafft unterwegs im Fahrzeug die Voraussetzung für den WLAN-Zugang für die Passagiere, Fahrgastinformationssysteme, Infotainment und Digital Signage, die VoIP-Kommunikation sowie Anbindung elektronischer Zahlungssysteme.

Der drahtlose Zugang zum Internet erfolgt beim NB2710 Router über bis zu zwei LTE-Karten mit je bis zu 100 Mbps Downlink bzw. 50 Mbps Uplink. Der Einsatz von zwei Mobilfunkmodulen ermöglicht Kanalbündelung und somit eine höhere Datenübertragungsgeschwindigkeit und dank integrierter Load-Balancing-Funktion die optimale Verteilung des Datenverkehrs. Je nach Netzabdeckung schaltet der NB2710 über das Mobile IP-Protokoll nahtlos zwischen LTE, UMTS oder GSM um. Er bietet Platz für 6 SIM-Karten, die gemeinsam mit dem modernen WAN Link Manager hohe Verfügbarkeit in Netzwerkverbindungen unterschiedlicher Provider sicherstellen. Ein VoIP/GSM Gateway zur Sprachkommunikation sowohl über Internet als auch GSM lässt sich optional integrieren.
Über einen integrierten CAN-Port kann beim NB2710 auch die Übertragung von Daten zwischen CAN- und IP-basierten Netzwerken erfolgen – voor allem in der Fahrzeugindustrie ist das ein wichtiges Kriterium. Dank E1-Zertifizierung kann der NB2710 Router bereits ab Werk in Neufahrzeuge integriert werden.
Zur weiteren funktionalen Ausstattung des NB2710 Vehicle Routers zählen WiFi/WLAN 802.11 a/b/g/n als Hotspot oder Client, ein SIP-to-GSM-Gateway (bidirektional), Audio Line In/Out, OpenVPN und IPsec, Digital I/O sowie das ausfallsichere OTA Software-Update. Geräte ohne WLAN-Unterstützung lassen sich über Ethernet anschließen, ebenso weitere Access Points.
