DPX-596-01 (standard) and DPX-596-02 (SCATS®) Router

Project Description

The Dataplex DPX-596 is a reliable high-quality, high-speed LAN/WAN router for SCATS® and/or non- SCATS® industrial applications. The compact multi-application design gives diverse data connectivity.


  • DPX-596-01 Intended for standard (non-SCATS®) applications, g., CCTV, VMS/VSLS etc.
  • DPX-596-02 has the male DE-9 connection and SCATS® serial protocol interface code, SD card configuration and DPX_Configure interface for console operation.


DPX-596 delivers high-speed wireless 4G LTE / 5G (4/5G – potentially supporting several module brands and types) with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth sensing optional. Fast connectivity provides low latency and high- performance for applications such as live streaming traffic flow and motorway CCTV cameras etc.


Optional Dual SIM* for 4G LTE or 5G modem capability allows connectivity redundancy. Multiple networks can operate simultaneously. Redundancy can be supported via timeout and switchover or dual-homed IP paths.


Dual SFP slots facilitate connection to National Broadband Network – Australia (NBN) FTTP links; alternatively support single or multiple-ring topologies/applications for e.g., motorways or rail corridors.


Supports ADSL2+/VDSL2 via SFP or M.2 modem module. DPX-596-02 supports SCATS® serial to Ethernet conversion.


  • 4G/5G dual SIM capable operation with optional dual SIM cards (* depends on Mobile Broadband module used, if dual SIM is supported). Standard SIM card with be offered (Q3 2023).
  • Provision for
  • 2 x SFP for Fibre modules g., NBN FTTP (Fibre) GPON interface or OT Fibre network
  • SD card for configuration and storage (single SIM version)
  • 4 x Gigabit Ethernet LAN/WAN ports
  • Dedicated 1 x TIA-232 DE-9 DTE male for serial connections DPX596-02 offers serial Traffic Signal Controller (TSC) for SCATS® communications.
  • 1 x USB-A (compatible with serial converters) and 1x USB-C (console)
  • 4G/5G wireless can provide backup to NBN FTTP or OT Fibre network
  • Optional 2 internal ADSL/VDSL Option (ADSL/2/2+ Annex A/M, VDSL2, Vectoring & Profiles 8,12,17a,35b)
  • Optional (future development) Wi-Fi/Bluetooth (AddInsight® compatible) module for traffic
  • CLI console interface via OpenWRT
  • Intelligent network monitoring allows DPX-596 to re-connect automatically or failover to an alternative path. SNMP v3 supported. (DPX-596-02 will have DPX_Configure available Q3 2023).
