Ethernet Radios Extend Distance Over Mesh Networks

Providing wireless communication over mesh networks with up to 40 radios, the RAD-80211-XD/HP and RAD-80211XD/HP-BUS Ethernet radios feature 400 mW (26 dBm) of transmit power and 128-bit AES encryption. A unique auto-bridge mesh mode allows the network to self-form and heal if a radio drops out of the network. This results in an uninterrupted flow of data even if other bridge devices or network segments in the data’s path fail. The radios also support access point, client, and bridge/repeater modes and conform to 802.11b/g standards and operate in the 2.4-GHz band. Additionally, both the RAD-80211-XD/HP and RAD-80211-XD/HP-BUS are approved for use in Class I, Division 2 hazardous locations. PHOENIX CONTACT INC., Harrisburg, PA. (800) 322-3225.
