Wireless AP/client for industrial networks
Moxa’s AWK-1131A IEEE 802.11n wireless AP/client has high-speed transmission rates up to 300 Mbps and has advanced protection against harsh industrial environments, including power surges, electrostatic discharge, broad temperature swings, and vibration from production machinery. The AWK-1131A features galvanic isolation, which breaks ground loops to help prevent unwanted current caused by different ground potentials from entering the device. This helps protect the AWK-1131A from voltage or other electrical surges up to 500V. In addition, Moxa has increased the electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection on the AWK-1131A’s power inputs and antenna ports to Level 4 isolation to prevent damage from external environmental sources. The AWK-1131A can operate on either the 2.4 or 5 GHz bands and is backwards-compatible with existing 802.11a/b/g deployments to future-proof wireless investments. MIMO (multiple-input, multiple-output) technology increases data throughput and link range without additional bandwidth or increased transmit power.
