F209L wireless LAN module for 3U Compact PCI systems from MEN Micro Inc. is intended for harsh environmental conditions. It operates over an industrial temperature range of -40 to 85 °C and can be coated with a conformal film to protect against humidity and dust. Components on the printed circuit board are secured to resist shock and vibration. Module supports IEEE 802.11b wireless data transfers up to 11 Mbps and has an output power range of 20 dBm. It can achieve a long-distance outdoor signal range of up to 600 m. Product is especially suited to transportation applications. It comes on a PCMCIA (PC card) circuit board for easy implementation with other types of WLAN deployments. It is based on the Prism 2.5 chipset, which includes WEP encryption and operates in the open 2.4 GHz frequency range using direct sequence spread spectrum technology of IEEE 802.11b.
