Industrial Wireless LAN Modules

April 1, 2009
Two Wireless LAN modules based on the latest IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n standards are designed for heavy-duty use in industrial applications.

The dual-band modules are said to operate well both on the 2.4 GHz and the 5 GHz bands, facilitating coexistence between wireless technologies. The OWLAN221a and OWLAN222a modules offer several unique features such as the ability to function faultless in the industrial temperature ranges of -30ºC up to +85ºC, says the vendor. Further, the modules support 802.11n single stream, which enables signal speeds of up to 65 Mbps, and also allows users to choose either an integrated antenna or dual external antennas. The modules can also operate in either infrastructure mode, ad-hoc mode or in mesh networking (802.11s).
