Extend communication beyond the building and provide access to people, applications, and network resources. Don't let outdoor or hazardous industrial challenges inhibit your wireless connectivity. A wireless network solution provides maximum cost-effectiveness and delivers high scalability in comparison to wired solutions. Products from Inhand Networks, Antaira Technologies, Proxim Wireless, and Sena Technologies will maximize the efficiency and longevity of your existing system. Choose from 4G LTE routers, wireless gateways, cellular modems, and Wi-Fi devices.
Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, and remote monitoring stations require cellular data transmission delivered by robust LTE devices. Industrial LTE routers offer a variety of I/O, network VPN security, firewall functions, full network management, and routing. Plus, they are incredibly reliable, standing up to extreme temperatures and industrial power.
The InRouter615-S from InHand Networks is a great example. It is available with M1, NBIoT, Category 1 and Category 4 (CAT 1 or CAT 4) technology that handles low to high data rates. Cloud-based tools accompany our routers and cellular modems, allowing you to remotely management, monitoring, and maintain your deploy devices.
Our industrial-grade Wi-Fi devices operate in Access Point (AP), Client, Bridge, Router, and Repeater modes to support a variety of applications. The Antaira ARS-7235-AC is an affordable industrial-grade solution that provides AP and bridge functionality, 2.4 and 5 GHz frequencies, and up to 300 Mbps link speed. Or, consider the Antaira ARY-7235 which is IP67 rated for outdoor communication. These units deploy rapidly with pre-configured IP addresses, ESSID names, encryption, and WPA2 security information that connect automatically upon power up and immediately begin passing data. The Antaira industrial wireless AP product line can withstand temperatures from -10 to 60°C in standard models and -35 to 70°C in the extreme operating temperature model.
The Antaira wireless AP product line offers security features such as WPA2, IEEE 802.1x, RADIUS, HTTPS, and SSH to keep your wireless network secure. Several models support VPN encrypted tunnels over the internet that allows a remote office or mobile user to connect securely to the corporate network.
If you have devices with RS-232 ports, you can modernize the connection by converting it to a Bluetooth network. No software is needed, and no change to the system is required. Any application that uses RS-232, a converter such as ATAC Technologies’ BT232 may replace the cable run. Also, it communicates with other Bluetooth devices such as USB dongles and Bluetooth enabled computers. Bluetooth converters can be economical replacements for RS-232 cabling.
Other Bluetooth converters include Bluetooth-to-USB and Bluetooth-to-Ethernet. The Parani-SD1000U Bluetooth USB Adapter supports 300 meters of transmission and extends to 1000 with an optional antenna. This solution is perfect for industrial or other specialized applications. The Parani-MSP1000A is a Bluetooth-to-Ethernet solution that supports up to 7 Bluetooth devices over a 10/100Base-T network. It is an ideal solution to replace a wired multi-port serial card. A wide assortment of Bluetooth antennas and accessories are available. Industrial Bluetooth wirelessly connects meters, surveying instruments, farm equipment, building automation, lighting, and climate control services to your network.
