Introduction 

Moxa’s AWK-6232 3-in-1 outdoor wireless AP/bridge/client meets the growing need for faster data transmission speeds and wider coverage by supporting IEEE 802.11n technology with a net data rate of up to 300 Mbps per each radio module. The AWK-6232 provides a flexible and efficient way to deploy your wireless network with its dual 2.4/5 GHz RF modules, which allow two independent wireless connections over different frequencies. The AWK-6232 is compliant with the industrial standards and approvals, covering operating temperature, power input voltage, surge, ESD and vibration. In addition, the AWK-6232 is housed in an IP68 metal casing with M12 connectors for total protection against dust, water, vibration, and other environmental effects.

Critical Elements of Industrial-Grade Wireless Device

 

Industrial operators using commercial-grade wireless devices for mission-critical wireless applications may be getting satisfactory wireless network service, but frequent maintenance and system downtime can add up to a high total cost of ownership. In this paper, we reveal many harmful effects commonly found in industrial environments that can quickly disable a commercial-grade wireless device, and discuss the types of protection an industrial-grade wireless device should provide to ensure continuous wireless network communication...more
