Wireless industrial hotspot

19 November, 2007 | Supplied by: CrispTech Pty Ltd

ProSoft Technology has added its 802.11abg Industrial Hotspot to the growing line of RadioLinx products. The RLX-IHW functions as a wireless access point, repeater or client and is designed for global installations. It offers high-speed wireless ethernet communications including EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP/IP, and DNP over ethernet for linking automation systems, ethernet I/O, video cameras and plant network access for mobile workers. The RLX-IHW utilises orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) for multi-path interference rejection, RF multicast packet filtering and dual frequency bands which make it the ideal solution for demanding, high-speed industrial networks needing reliable performance.
