Introduction

The AWK-1161A Series industrial wireless AP is designed to meet the growing need for faster data transmission speeds while servicing more clients through IEEE 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) technology. The AWK-1161A is compliant with industrial standards and approvals covering operating temperature, power input voltage, surge, ESD, and vibration. The compact form factor with DIN-rail or optional wall mounting easily fits into industrial machines or control cabinets, offering reliable wireless services. The AWK-1161A supports selectable 2.4 and 5 GHz bands and is backwards compatible with existing 802.11a/b/g/n/ac deployments to future-proof your wireless investments.

Advanced 802.11ac Industrial Wireless Solution

  • 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 compliant access point backwards compatible with Wi-Fi 4/ Wi-Fi 5 for flexible deployment

  • DFS channel support allows a wider range of 5 GHz channel selection to avoid interference from existing wireless infrastructure

  • Wi-Fi 6 OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access) technology enables concurrent communication with multiple clients for improved network efficiency

  • Wi-Fi 6 TWT (Target Wake Time) technology facilitates better scheduling and longer battery life for connected devices

Advanced Wireless Technology

  • AP-based client disconnection mechanism to help wireless clients without roaming intelligence obtain optimal AP services

Industrial Ruggedness

  • Integrated antenna isolation designed to provide protection against external electrical interference

  • -40 to 75°C wide operating temperature (-T) models for smooth wireless communication in harsh environments

  • WLAN Standards

    2.4 GHz: 802.11ax with 1024 QAM support, 20/40 MHz
