Introduction

The AWK-4131A IP68 outdoor industrial AP/bridge/client meets the growing need for faster data transmission speeds by supporting 802.11n technology and allowing 2X2 MIMO communication with a net data rate of up to 300 Mbps. The AWK-4131A is compliant with industrial standards and approvals covering operating temperature, power input voltage, surge, ESD, and vibration. The two redundant DC power inputs increase the reliability of the power supply, and the AWK-4131A can be powered via PoE to make deployment easier. The AWK-4131A can operate on either the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz bands and is backwards-compatible with existing 802.11a/b/g deployments to future-proof your wireless investments.

Advanced 802.11n Industrial Wireless Solution

  • 802.11a/b/g/n compliant AP/bridge/client for flexible deployment

  • Software-optimized for long-distance wireless communication with up to 1 km line of sight and external high-gain antenna (available only on 5 GHz)

  • Supports 60 clients connected concurrently

  • DFS channel support allows a wider range of 5 GHz channel selection to avoid interference from existing wireless infrastructure

Advanced Wireless Technology for Mission-critical Applications

  • Seamless roaming with client-based Turbo Roaming  for < 150 ms roaming recovery time between APs (Client mode)

  • AeroMag support for error-free setup of your industrial applications’ basic WLAN settings

  • Supports AeroLink Protection for creating a redundant wireless link (< 300 ms recovery time) between APs and their clients

Industrial Ruggedness

  • Integrated antenna and power isolation designed to provide 500 V insulation protection against external electrical interference

  • IP68-rated metal casing for complete ingress protection for any outdoor weather

  • -40 to 75°C wide operating temperature models available for smooth wireless communication in harsh environments
