Moxa's AWK-1131A IEEE 802.11n wireless AP/client has high-speed transmission rates up to 300 Mbps and features galvanic isolation, which breaks ground loops to help prevent unwanted current caused by different ground potentials from entering the device. CMoxa’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.
