Brea, California, September 1, 2017—Moxa, a leading provider of industrial wireless solutions worldwide, recently unveiled the AWK-1137C, a compact and reliable wireless client designed for integration into industrial equipment and machines. The palm-sized wireless client, with flexible mounting options and multiple connection interfaces, comes with a mobility-oriented design to enable machine builders to embed the device into their equipment and machines to ensure seamless wireless connectivity. In addition, the device also supports Moxa’s AeroMag—a fast and easy wireless network deployment technology.

According to Wen Hsuan Chen, a product manager in Moxa’s Industrial Wireless Division, “Machine manufacturers require a compact and reliable wireless client to build wireless connectivity into mobile industrial equipment such as AGVs, robotic arms, and AS/RS shuttle systems. Moxa’s new AWK-1137C wireless clients are specifically designed to fulfill these requirements. In addition to being compact, the AWK-1137C wireless clients come with flexible mounting options and Ethernet and serial ports for easy integration into machines and moving equipment. To ensure smooth wireless connectivity for mobile equipment, the device supports Moxa’s Turbo Roaming technology, which provides a 150 millisecond fast handoff time. A wide power input range of 9 to 30 VDC enables stable power draw from an onboard battery, and an anti-vibration design provides reliable operation when integrated into moving equipment and machines. Moreover, it features Moxa’s AeroMag technology, making wireless network deployment fast and easy. The AWK-1137C wireless client is the ideal wireless solution for enabling seamless wireless connectivity for your machines.”
