Introduction 

The AWK-3131 3-in-1 industrial wireless AP/bridge/client meets the growing need for faster data transmission speeds by supporting IEEE 802.11n technology with a net data rate of up to 300 Mbps. The AWK-3131 is compliant with the industrial standards and approvals, covering operating temperature, power input voltage, surge, ESD and vibration. The two redundant DC power inputs increase the reliability of the power supply, and the AWK-3131 can be powered via PoE to make deployment easier. The AWK-3131 can operate on either the 2.4 or 5 GHz bands and is backwards-compatible with existing 802.11a/b/g deployments to future-proof your wireless investments.

Improved Higher Data Rate and Bandwidth 

  • High-speed wireless connectivity with up to 300 Mbps data rate
  • MIMO technology to improve the capability of transmitting and receiving multiple data streams
  • Increased channel width with channel bonding technology

Specifications for Industrial-grade Applications 

  • Industrial-grade QoS and VLAN for efficient data traffic management
  • Integrated DI/DO for on-site monitoring and warnings
  • Signal strength LEDs for easy deployment and antenna alignment

Expert Tips for Optimizing Industrial Wireless Networks

 

Compared with its popularity in everyday commercial environments, Wi-Fi has been slow to gain a foothold in industrial M2M applications. One of the main reasons that industrial customers are reluctant to move from wired to wireless is the problems associated with stability. Wireless transmission is NOT as reliable as wired transmission. However, by following certain best practices it is possible to set up a wireless network that will provide the level of reliability needed for M2M communication applications. In this whitepaper, we present eight expert tips that you can follow to optimize your wireless networks for industrial application environments...more
