The routers of the ECR series have all essential interfaces for the implementation of extensive applications, ranging from remote access to IoT. Both the LAN and 4G variants offer Wi-Fi for operation as an access point for local networking, or as a client for integration into an IT infrastructure. In addition, the routers are suitable for the secure collection and processing of application data (edge computing).

The highlights of the ECR Wi-Fi router at a glance:

  • Wi-Fi

  • RS485, RS232 and digital I/Os
  • Flexible mounting
  • IoT-ready

Dual SIM

By using two SIM cards in the LTE version, the ECR router allows provider redundancy.


Serial interfaces

With the serial interfaces RS232 and RS485 it is possible to connect external devices and also to transfer existing systems into modern IoT environments.


Ethernet and I/O

Two RJ45 connections and 2×2 digital inputs and outputs create a wide range of possible uses for your application.


Flexible mounting

The possibility of DIN rail mounting as well as wall mounting create the possibility of a flexible mounting e.g. in control cabinets or small distribution boards.



No power supply on site? The energy saving mode also enables solar or battery powered applications.


Hardened router operating system

The hardened icom OS operating system of the ECR router provides extensive network and security functions and thus ensures stable and secure data communication.



The routers of the ECR series can process data locally and easily connect to cloud systems and IoT platforms.
