Nonstop Network Connectivity with Moxa Advanced Serial to IEEE 802.11a/b/g Wireless Device Server

Moxa_advanced_serial_to_IEEE_802.11abg_wireless_device_serverTaipei, Taiwan, June 14, 2012—Moxa is pleased to release the NPort W2150A/W2250A series- RS-232/422/485 to wireless IEEE 802.11a/b/g device servers. The NPort W2150A/W2250A series allow secure data access with WEP/WPA/WPA2/802.1x encryption, consume only 2.4w of power, and support wide-temperature operation for environments ranging from -40 to 75°C, ensuring reliable performance for use in industrial automation such as warehouse AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle) and CNC applications.
“For mission-critical applications, data loss when the wireless connection goes down is not acceptable. The NPort W2150A/W2250A is designed with triple protection using three advanced technologies to provide uninterrupted wireless connectivity. Also, many customers are not aware of the fact that IEEE 802.11a uses the 5GHz frequency and experiences significantly less RF interference when compared to IEEE 802.11b/g, which uses the 2.4GHz frequency, the same frequency used by most consumer products,says Ryan Ma, product manager of the NPort W2150A/W2250A series.
First, Moxa’s Fast Roaming technology increases the roaming speed to unify AP channels and reduce handover times to less than 500 ms. Also, the NPort W2150A/W2250A offers superior 3-in-1 surge-protection, which includes level 3 (2 KV) power line surge protection and level 2 surge protection for serial and Ethernet ports. Finally, the NPort W2150A/W2250A is designed to continue operating if the wireless connection is temporarily disconnected. If the wireless connection is restraining, or if the connection fails, serial data transmissions from the serial device will be queued in the built-in port buffer with over 10 MB of storage. As soon as the wireless connection returns to normal, the data stored in the buffer will be sent to its destination.
