TOSIBOX® Lock 500: Reliable high-performance connectivity for your demanding industrial environment

Michael Szücs, Director International Sales, Tosibox Oy

TOSIBOX® Lock 500 is a high-performance connectivity device created for demanding industrial environments where a secure way of transferring large amounts of data is essential. Industry 4.0, the fourth industrial revolution is in progress, and the importance and the amount of data is constantly growing in various application areas. This has made the need for secure connectivity more important than ever.

Having created a unique, globally patented point-to-point connection between devices, we have simplified IoT connectivity. The modularity of TOSIBOX® products enables easy and fast extension of networks. TOSIBOX® ecosystem is an entire IoT infrastructure, tailored to machine builders’ needs.

TOSIBOX® Lock 500 is compatible with legacy hardware, future systems and with all TOSIBOX® products. It is a next-generation connectivity device providing reliable high-performance connectivity and industrial form factor.

Reliable high-performance connectivity

Machine builders can rest assured they can receive massive data throughput with the Lock 500, which will enable them to collect very high data volumes.

Remote plants, off-shore objects, objects in forests or on the countryside, in water treatment or in the energy sector are more and more hooked up into IoT infrastructures. Connection flexibility and redundancy are essential in remote locations. TOSIBOX® Lock 500 will provide reliable connectivity and protect your devices behind it. The TosiOnline™ feature further enhances the reliability by automatically reconnecting dropped connections.

TOSIBOX® Lock 500 offers up to four connectivity possibilities in one device. The Lock 500 has integrated WiFi as a connectivity method or an access point for wireless devices on site. The built-in LTE modem is optional, with two modem variants making external modem unnecessary. The Lock 500 also has dual-SIM slots for tackling operator redundancy and allowing connectivity from not one but two telecom providers.

Industrial design

The TOSIBOX® Lock 500 has digital I/O for the controlling and monitoring of Lock status. There are four selectable active states for inputs that determine whether Internet or VPN connections are allowed. Outputs can be assigned to reflect the device state for the same variables. The digital I/O allows the activation and deactivation of connections based on external signals, alarms such as machine error, critical temperature and manual activation.

The compact design and interconnection of the Lock 500 were born out of our customers’ needs. We wanted to ensure fast and convenient installation into cabinets and other small places.

The Lock 500 is a perfect match for industrial customers who will directly benefit from the new features such as the industrial screw-on DC power connector, integrated DIN rail mounting bracket for easy mounting and the industrial housing with robust, fanless enclosure and IP20 classification.

Remote maintenance and data collection

TOSIBOX® Lock 500 is already in use and our customers are impressed with its high performance and uncompromised security features. For example, the globally operating Arctic Drilling Company enjoys secure data collection from moving drilling units with the reliable TOSIBOX® Lock 500. On an annual basis, the company’s savings from remote maintenance can be measured in millions of euros.

TOSIBOX® Lock 500 is now available through our global sales and distributors. Bring your connectivity up to par with the Industry 4.0 today. Take the lead.
