Q:

1. Since the AWK-6222 is listed as IP68-rated, what are the specifications for IP68?
2. Does the AWK-6222's default antenna also fulfill the IP68 rating?

A:

1.

Moxa's IP68-rated AWK-6222 features total dust ingress protection and immersion up to a depth of 1 m for 2 hours, making it well suited for even the harshest outdoor conditions.
2. The AWK-6222's new default model antenna (model name ANT-WDB-ANM-0502) is an upgrade from the original ANT-WDB-ANM-05 single band antenna. The new antenna supports 2.4/5 GHz dual-band transmission and is IP67-rated, which means that it features total dust ingress protection and immersion between a depth of 15 cm to 1 m for 30 minutes. (Note: The AWK-6222 does not provide wireless transmission when under water.)
 

Q:

Why is the AWK-6222 suitable for heavy-duty industrial applications?

A:

Full redundancy:
The AWK-6222 provides redundancy with two RF modules that support independent wireless connections. In addition, its dual Ethernet ports can be configured to provide a redundant path to an Ethernet LAN and supports the RSTP redundant protocol or Moxa's own proprietary Turbo Ring. Dual DC power inputs are also provided for power redundancy, and PoE is added to simplify your wireless installation in hard-to-reach outdoor locations. 

Regulatory Approvals:
We test products on a regular basis to ensure quality and operational safety. Moxa's AWK-6222 has been approved by some of the most trusted global sources for product compliance, including:
> UL: The AWK-6222 has passed heavy industrial EMI/EMS testing, such as EN61000-6-4 and EN61000-6-2.
> EN50155: The AWK-6222 has been tested based on the European railway standard EN50155. Performance standards are specified for railway operating environments, including shock, vibration, extended temperature range, humidity, and many other factors.
> EN50121-4: The AWK-6222 has been tested according to EN50121-4 standards, which specify the principles for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) behavior and management to ensure EMC at the interface between trains and railway infrastructures. The objective is to specify the EMC emission and immunity requirements for railway products.

Rugged/Outdoor Industrial Design
The IP68 metal casing and rugged M12 connectors make the AWK-6222 robust and provide stable operation over a wide temperature range of –40 to 75°C. The standard package comes with a wall-mounting kit. To offer greater mounting flexibility, the AWK-6222 can also use pole mounting (with optional accessory: PK-DC2DOF) or Din-Rail mounting (with optional accessory: DK-DC50131).

 

Q:

If one of the AWK-6222's dual wireless connections fails, what is the failover switching time to the other RF?

A:

Wireless redundancy is provided with the AWK-6222's dual RF modules, allowing you to set up two independent wireless connections for redundancy between the redundant client and redundant AP devices. If one of the two WLAN connections fails, the other connection will continue to transmit packets between the redundant Client and redundant AP devices. Take advantage of zero packet loss with the AWK-6222's unique redundant dual RF design.
 

Q:

Most wireless products are equipped with a single RF that operates at 54 Mbps. Since the AWK-6222 has two RF modules, can it transmit at 108 Mbps?

A:

No. The main purpose of the dual RFs is to provide wireless redundancy, not load balance.
 

Q:

Do the AWK-6222's two RFs increase wireless beam width?

A:

Yes. Compared with single RF wireless products, the AWK-6222's dual RFs can significantly increase beam width.
