Introduction

The AWK-4131A IP68 outdoor industrial AP/bridge/client meets the growing need for faster data transmission speeds by supporting 802.11n technology and allowing 2X2 MIMO communication with a net data rate of up to 300 Mbps. The AWK-4131A is compliant with industrial standards and approvals covering operating temperature, power input voltage, surge, ESD, and vibration. The two redundant DC power inputs increase the reliability of the power supply, and the AWK- 4131A can be powered via PoE to make deployment easier. The AWK- 4131A can operate on either the 2.4 or 5 GHz bands and is backwardscompatible with existing 802.11a/b/g deployments to future-proof your investments in wireless networks.

Advanced 802.11n Industrial Wireless Solution

  • 802.11a/b/g/n compliant AP/bridge/client for flexible deployment
  • Software optimized for long distance (LoS, 1 km) wireless communication
    with external high-gain antenna (available on 5 GHz)
  • Supports 60 clients connected concurrently
  • DFS channel support allows a wider range of 5 GHz channel selection
    to avoid existing wireless infrastructure and interference

Advanced Wireless Technology for Mission-Critical Applications

  • Seamless roaming with Client-based Turbo Roaming for < 150 ms
    roaming recovery time between APs (Client mode)
  • Supports AeroLink Protection for creating a redundant wireless link
    (< 300 ms recovery time) between AP and clients (Client mode)

Industrial Ruggedness

  • Integrated antenna and power isolation designed to provide 500 V insulation
    protection against external electrical interference 
  • IP68 rated metal casing for complete ingress protection for any outdoor weather
  • -40 to 75°C wide operating temperature provided for smooth wireless
    communication in harsh environments
