Site visits constitute one of the main costs related to BMS installations. These performance tests of the control equipment installed are often very time-consuming too. It is possible to rely on remote access through 3G/4G cellular communication systems. Yet, these systems have proved to be unreliable, expensive, or difficult to use.

The R3000L-BMS router-based system offers a new alternative for system installers and designers. It is a powerful VPN router developed from RobustOS. Robustel designed this self -developed and Linux-based operating system for its devices. This proprietary device operating system was built from the ground up around a Linux Kernel. It allows for lightweight firmware and application delivery across the Robustel product range. 

Users can use RobustOS to update their device functionality through apps and yet leave the firmware untouched. All Robustel devices are built around RobustOS. For this reason, minimal changes are required to transfer apps among device models and families.

For more flexibility and customization, RobustOS apps can be created via the RobustOS SDK in C, Python, or Java. RobustOS also includes basic networking features and protocols. As a result, the whole user experience is generally enhanced. Here is how RobustOS can solve some of the most common problems faced by users worldwide:

RobustVPN Software – This cloud-based system allows easy access to any remote device using a SIM. RobustVPN is the comprehensive integration of network security standards. It enables a VPN tunnel between users and their remote devices. It was tested with SETT and IQ3 controllers, amongst others. 

Flexible IO – We are referring to Ethernet ports, serial ports, and a Modbus RTU port built-in. RobustOS can access a multitude of devices over a single connection. This feature makes the whole process much more convenient. DIO can also be used for monitoring and control. It is as multifunctional as convenient.

Roaming SIM – An optional multi-network SIM makes it easier to connect a cellular router to equipment in plant rooms and other enclosed areas. Using a roaming SIM is cheaper than roaming with your phone provider. It is also more convenient than relying on local SIMs. That is why it is one of the most cost-effective options available nowadays.

Data Limiting APP – With this app, you can send alerts or pause your SIM if you exceed a certain data threshold. You can also reconnect any time with a text message. Moreover, the RobustOS data limiting app can reduce the risk of “Bill-shock”. Consider it as a reminder to pay your phone bills! Based on our experience, this function is so practical and essential for all errant users. 

RCMS Cloud Platform – With the new RCMS Cloud platform from Robustel, you can track and update routers on the field. All the routers available will show on a map through cell triangulation. They can then be managed directly from this platform If one router is offline, you will be the first to know! Call it a boost on your efficiency.

The RCMS delivery system ensures en-masse handling of critical firmware, software, or configuration updates. Full customization is also available for major projects.
