Product description

Part of the Cinterion® Industrial Plus family, the PGS8 wireless module offers full voice capabilities, high speed GPRS data transmission and minimal power consumption. It is an exceptional choice for machine-to-machine (M2M) applications that require focused 2G connectivity with embedded high performance and global satellite (GNSS) service. At just 2.2 mm in height, PGS8 is ideal for integration in the slimmest and most size constrained trace and track applications. The unique cost savings and performance inherent in PGS8 make it an ideal solution for Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) applications including onboard vehicle telematics and fleet management as well as point of sale (POS) and alarm devices.

PGS8 shares the same footprint as Cinterion 3G and LTE solutions enabling integrators to choose radio technology according to regional and vertical needs, maximizing cost savings. It targets high volume, cost sensitive applications that utilize low bandwidth GSM/GPRS connectivity. Its rugged and compact Land Grid Array (LGA) footprint guarantees long product availability along with optimized Total Cost of Ownership and unparalleled migration opportunities.

Based on the powerful Intel® 2G chipset, the module’s unique Cinterion LGA technology enables optimized heat dissipation that prevents warping. This gives demanding industrial customers the freedom to select the most beneficial soldering paste for each individual application.

Equipped with high performance GPS/GLONASS, the PGS8 module is prepared to meet the comprehensive requirements of trace and track applications in the mobility aftermarket. It also features an extensive set of secure Internet services including TCP, UDP, HTTP and FTP, voice prompts, generic flash access and a reliable jamming detection.
