Belden has released the Magnum DX940e industrial cellular router. This new, compact device from Belden’s GarrettCom brand adheres to NERC CIP industry standards by delivering stricter security protocols and extended flexibility for the most reliable connections over wired and wireless networks in energy facilities.

“In today’s industrial markets, data can travel farther and faster than ever before, which is why it is imperative that networks are secure and reliable so critical information can be successfully distributed. The rise in data and compliance standards, such as NERC CIP’s requirement for higher security, is putting the safeguarding of information top of mind for industrial teams,” said Divij Agarwal, product manager at Belden. “The Magnum DX940e cellular router offers robust security elements and backward compatibility across 4G/LTE wireless area networks for heightened, secure connectivity over longer distances without interruption.”

The DX940e is ideal for applications that require high-speed and secure data transfer remotely over long distances. The router is suited for markets that depend on a durable and reliable product that can perform even under harsh operating conditions, such as in the utility, transportation and oil and gas industries.
