New Industrial Ethernet WLAN Modem

Weidmuller has released an industrial Ethernet WLAN modem compatible with IEEE 802.11a/b/g in both the 2.4-GHz or 5.8-GHz bands. It can be used as an access point, bridge or client. Power can be supplied to the device using Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) or with the redundant power supply connections. It can easily be integrated in the Turbo Roaming feature so that mobile clients can quickly switch between wireless cells without the risk of signal loss, and supports multi SSID, VLAN and QoS. Several zones are easily specified per radio cell (multi SSID) and different VLANs assigned. For security, a WPA/WPA2 encryption and RADIUS server authentication (IEEE 802.1X) are included as are integrated DI/DO contacts used for monitoring and alert functions. Encased in a metal housing the module is simply snapped onto the TS35 mounting rail or a rack mount kit option available to mount the module onto a 19-in. rack. IEEE 802.11a/b/g wireless AP/Bridge/Client WLAN models are available for both the European and American markets, with an extended operating temperature range from -40 to 75°C (-40 to 167 °F). The WLAN has a 5-year warranty and is approved by CE, FCC, cULus Class 1 Div. 2 / ATEX Class 1, Zone 2.
