NCS0402 - OEM version - front


 NCS0402 - OEM version - back


The NCS0402 is a ready-to-use network connectivity platform intended for combined ethernet and GSM network connectivity applications. It also contains a serial port (RS232/RS485).

The NCS0402 integrates an ID1021 module and a Siemens GSM modem, therewith enabling both local ethernet access and remote wireless access using a GSM network.


Typical applications for the NCS0402 are:

  • Web interface for OEM product that can be accessed locally over ethernet and remotely over the internet (GPRS).

  • SMS alarming & control.

  • GPRS-to-Ethernet bridge, for enabling wireless internet access to OEM device with ethernet interface.

  • GPRS-to-Serial bridge, for enabling wireless internet access to OEM device with RS232 or RS485 interface.

Functions that can be realized with the NCS0402:

  • Remote control/configuration of OEM product using ethernet and/or SMS, GSM data or GPRS.

  • Bridging/tunneling of existing RS232 or RS485 protocol over GSM data/GPRS.

  • Remote servicing/upgrading of OEM product firmware/software/databases via GSM network.

  • Remote data acquisition & logging over GSM, periodic retrieval of data using FTP (GPRS).
