Drivers & Software
The AWK-3191 900 MHz wireless AP/bridge/client is Moxa’s answer to long distance wireless communication for industrial applications. By combining the characteristics of the 33-centimeter band and the proven 802.11 standards, Moxa is able to provide a reliable long distance wireless solution. Unlike traditional point-to-point 900 MHz radios, the AWK-3191 supports both master/slave and AP/client operation modes to enable both point-to-point and point-to-multi-point communication for higher flexibility and lower total cost of ownership.
Furthermore, the AWK-3191 is designed to be deployed easily, but in case of external interference, Moxa also provides the ability to allow engineers to adjust their 900 MHz central frequency and bandwidth (5/10 MHz and 20 MHz) to optimize their wireless performance.
The AWK-3191 is rated to operate at temperatures ranging from -25 to 60°C for standard models and -40 to 75°C for wide temperature models, and with an industrial-oriented design, it is compliant with various standards and approvals, making it rugged enough for any harsh industrial environment.

Expert Tips for Optimizing Industrial Wireless Networks
Compared with its popularity in everyday commercial environments, Wi-Fi has been slow to gain a foothold in industrial M2M applications. One of the main reasons that industrial customers are reluctant to move from wired to wireless is the problems associated with stability. Wireless transmission is NOT as reliable as wired transmission. However, by following certain best practices it is possible to set up a wireless network that will provide the level of reliability needed for M2M communication applications. In this whitepaper, we present eight expert tips that you can follow to optimize your wireless networks for industrial application environments...more
