The new WLAN 1100 wireless module from Phoenix Contact combines Access Point and antenna technology in just one device. In contrast to the classic concept, it is installed like an antenna directly onto machinery, mobile vehicles or control cabinets, rather than inside the control cabinet.
Two integrated high-performance antennae with MIMO technology ensure reception is available wherever it is needed. This concept offers the user a cost-effective and simple WLAN machine connection; there is no need for expensive WLAN planning or installation of antenna technology.
As the wireless module does not require space in the control cabinet it is simple to retrofit. It is attached using single-hole assembly and via a Combicon connector and RJ45 Ethernet connector, as usual. The wireless module is also suitable for tough industrial environments. It is shockproof according to IK08 and therefore even withstands stronger mechanical loads.
