Konect PakBus Router is a PakBus routing service that is designed to help take the headache out of communication via dynamic or private cellular data communications. In many locations, cellular network providers are unable to provide a truly public-facing fixed IP address. Instead, they provide a dynamic IP address or provide a fixed IP address via a VPN connection. Konect PakBus Routing Service allows you to route a range of PakBus addresses through our cloud-based router, which behaves like a fixed connection using the URL and port combination we provide.Read More
Cellular service data plans are not included with the Konect PakBus Router and must be purchased separately.
Konect PakBus Router is a cloud-based service that supports all of Campbell Scientific's PakBus dataloggers*. The router acts as a bridge between a datalogger configured to connect to the router and our LoggerNet Datalogger Support Software. The datalogger connection to the router is most easily implemented by entering the router URL into the datalogger's PakBus/TCP Client Connections setting, or the connection can be initiated under datalogger program control using the CRBasic TCPOpen()/PPPOpen instruction.
Konect PakBus Router is offered as a two-year subscription (two years of service, paid in advance). Subscription fees are based on a per-datalogger basis. You provide us with the unique PakBus address(es) of the datalogger(s) to which you want to connect, and we provide you with a URL/Port combination to use in the datalogger(s) and in the LoggerNet software. As your network of dataloggers grows, simply request that new PakBus addresses be added to your Konect PakBus Router service.
*Some PakBus dataloggers do not have an internal IP stack and must rely on the capabilities of an IP modem to initiate the connection back to the Konect Router. This includes the CR200(X) and the CR10X, CR510, and CR23X dataloggers with a PakBus operating system.
Note: Konect PakBus Router is also provided as a complimentary service with the purchase of any cellular-enabled device (stand-alone cellular modem or datalogger with embedded cellular modem).
