Phoenix Contact is offering an industrial WLAN Ethernet adapter for integrating Ethernet-capable devices into WLAN IEEE 802.11a/n networks (5GHz frequency band). The new adapter has an IP67 enclosure rating and complements the WLAN Ethernet adapters (WLAN clients) for the IEEE 802.11 b/g WLAN standard (2.4GHz frequency band).
An integrated antenna has been specially developed to provide a high level of robustness for wireless communication in reflective industrial environments. New functions such as DCP, LLDP, and Profinet prioritisation increase performance when used in automation networks. Application areas for the WLAN Ethernet adapters include locations in which moving or mobile Ethernet-capable devices such as controllers, terminals, or I/O modules are to be integrated wirelessly into the main Ethernet network.
