Introduction

The TAP-323 trackside wireless unit is designed for board-to-ground wireless communication. The TAP-323 is a highly compact and rugged wireless unit that integrates two access points, a managed fiber switch, and a wide-range AC/DC power supply into one box. The IP68 housing allows the unit to withstand harsh weather conditions, and M12 connectors make the unit shock and vibration resistant. The TAP- 323 supports advanced controller-based Turbo Roaming technology for train-to-ground wireless applications such as communication-based train control (CBTC) and CCTV. The unit can supply power to up to 4 PoE devices while providing reliable LAN communication with Moxa’s Turbo Chain technology.
