Advantech’s Industrial Automation Group introduces two new wireless device servers, the EKI-1361 and EKI-1362. They are one and two port RS-232/422/485 to 802.11 b/g/n WLAN serial device servers.
They have been designed for use in areas where signal strength and reliability may be affected. To counteract these issues, they use MIMO 2x2 technology which transmits two signals simultaneously which ensures greater efficiency by ensuring they are not jammed by other devices.
To further aid reliability, they have a fast roaming design. This means that when moving from one access point to another where signal strength can weaken, these switches can quickly switch to a new access point without degrading the data.
To fit in areas with limited space, they weigh just 800 grams each, have small footprint, and provide a range of mounting options and antenna extensions.
In industries where the models are fixed, they can have a peer-to-peer connection without using wireless access points, therefore making it cost effective in areas that would otherwise need to have a long wired connection.
