802.11abgn Weatherproof IP67 Fast Industrial Hotspot

The ProSoft Technology Weatherproof IP67 Fast Industrial Hotspot (RLX2-IHNF-W) is designed for harsh environments and features an IP66/67 rating. It is water-tight for use in extreme weather applications such as offshore oil rigs, and dust-tight for use in mining applications. It operates in the 2.4 or 5 GHz bands, including DFS channels, and is good for applications up to 2 mi. / 3.2 km.

The Hotspot supports Access Point, Repeater, and Client modes. The 802.11n technology delivers fast data rates up to 300 Mbps. This provides excellent packet-per-second performance and robust communications in rugged industrial environments. The 802.11n MIMO & Channel bonding supports demanding wireless applications such as Ethernet I/O and high-resolution video.

The included IH Browser configuration and monitoring software allows the user to view network topology, assign IP addresses, monitor network diagnostics, and update radio firmware. The optional OPC Diagnostic Server is ideal for managing long-range wireless SCADA networks.

Features and Benefits

  • 802.11n MIMO & Channel bonding supports demanding wireless applications such as Ethernet I/O and high-resolution video
  • EtherNet/IP™-or Modbus®-based PLCs/PACs can use message instructions to read diagnostic information from the radios, helping to reduce down time when troubleshooting wireless network problems
  • 802.11i, WPA-2 Personal/Enterprise using 128-bit AES encryption ensures secure networking
  • RADIUS security ensures secure networking with advanced authentication and encryption
  • Virtual Local Area Networks (VLAN) allow for secure network segmentation
  • Quality of Service (QoS) provides data prioritization for I/O control devices, video, data, etc.
  • Ultra-Fast Roaming (under 10 ms) maintains seamless, high-speed connections to one or more devices on moving equipment and machines (such as cranes, AGVs, and carriers) as they travel between access points
  • IGMP Snooping and Packet Filtering optimizes UDP multicast traffic for superior EtherNet/IP I/O communications
  • Supports the ability to communicate with multiple Ethernet devices when used with existing third-party wireless infrastructures
  • Supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) to reduce cabling costs
  • Connect serial networks (Modbus, DNP 3, etc.) over 802.11 wireless networks
  • Supports SNMP
  • Simple local and remote configuration, monitoring, and wireless network diagnostics
