Transport systems such as forklifts, mobile scanners and devices are used in production, logistics and other areas. These systems and devices often require a permanent network connection.
An industrial WLAN network is suitable for this purpose. In order to provide a secure connection to this wireless network, ICPDAS offers the new WLAN converter IOP760AM.
The integrated roaming function ensures a seamless WLAN connection, as the converter always automatically connects to the nearest access point. For simultaneous dual-band WLAN data transmission, the IOP760AM supports the latest IEEE 802.11AC technology with 5 GHz and the IEEE 802.11 b/g/n WLAN standard for the 2.4 GHz band.
The compact design with sturdy metal housing and mounting options for DIN rail and wall, make it suitable for flexible use in industrial environments. The temperature range from -20°C to +60°C and the redundant voltage input of 9-48 volts meet the industrial requirements.
A LAN as well as a RS-232 and RS-485 port (ModbusRTU) are available for connecting the mobile devices to the WLAN converter. One digital input and one digital output each are used for event triggering and alarm message. A web browser provides extensive administration and configuration options.
