Login to see pricing


Simple to install and easy to manage, the Semtech RV50x industrial gateway is designed to connect critical assets and infrastructure. Ideal for industrial-grade applications in energy, utilities and smart-city infrastructure, theRV50x provides real-time remote connectivity for SCADA, distribution management systems and metering.

LTE and LTE-Advanced Connectivity

The RV50 brings the benefits of broadband connectivity to the most challenging environments, where servicing is not an option and power is often scarce. It is the industry’s only fully operational 4G gateway with 2G power consumption. LTE bandwidth makes it a viable alternative to costly wired and wireless technologies, providing a future-proof solution that protects investment.

Choose from either the LTE-Standard RV50x or LTE-Advanced RV50X.

Rugged Design for Demanding Environments

The RV50x is the most rugged AirLink gateway ever built. Designed to withstand harsh industrial conditions, it is capable of surviving 5V brownouts and spikes from -600 VDC to 200 VDC. Certified as Class I Div 2, it is ideal for hazardous environments. The die cast aluminium housing is sealed to meet IP64 for resistance to dust and water ingress. The Raven RV50 is tested to meet and exceed the MIL-STD-810G specification for shock, vibration, temperature and humidity. The built-in power supply protection make it suitable for harsh electrical environments such as compressors, generators, and excavators.

Ultra-low Power Consumption

The RV50x offers best-in-class power consumption combined with LTE performance, and is optimised for solar applications. It is the industry’s only 4G gateway with 2G power consumption, operating at 900 mW in idle mode. For 2G and 3G deployments migrating to LTE, the Raven RV50x will work with existing power infrastructure, eliminating the need to invest in replacement solar panels. Standby Mode provides additional protection for batteries by dropping power consumption to 53 mW, and can be triggered by timers, low voltage detection or I/O.

Simplified Deployment

The RV50x offers a single product variant for international network operators. The Raven RV50 supports network operator switching— automatic configuration of the radio, based on the SIM—providing versatility and simplicity when changing between network operators at any time.
