Courtesy: MoxaMoxa’s AWK-3191 is a frequency-shifted 900 MHz wireless access point (AP)/bridge/client designed to support data rates of up to 54 Mbps and distances up to 30 km line-of-sight for industrial users. The AWK-3191 allows users to achieve 6 Mbps data rate over a 30 km point-to-point connection and a theoretical maximum data rate of 54 Mbps. In addition, master/slave and AP/client operation modes are available to support point-to-point and point-to-multi-point communication. This makes the AWK-3191 useful for wireless applications involving highly obstructed sites or long distances like open-pit mines or offshore platforms.

The AWK-3191 is rated to operate at temperatures ranging from -25 to 60 C for standard models and -40 to 75 C for wide temperature models. Its industrial-grade design is compliant with various standards and approvals including for EMC (FCC part 15, Subpart B). In the event of external interference, the AWK-3191 allows engineers to adjust the 900 MHz central frequency and bandwidth (5/10 MHz and 20 MHz) to optimize wireless performance.
