特性 优势

Conforms to IEEE 802.11a/b/g

  • Open standard protects wireless network investment
  • High speed (54 Mbps), low latency communications
  • Radio-based IGMP snooping/querying to filter multicast industrial Ethernet maximizing bandwidth

Rugged and Powerful

  • IP-66 rated metal enclosure, industrial operating temperatures, vibration and shock resistant
  • Certification pending for use in hazardous locations (UL1604 Class I Div 2, ATEX Zone 2)
  • Transmit power and radio frequencies programmable for use globally

Data and Network Security

  • Cryptographic strength security with WPA2/802.11i-128/192/256 bit AES encryption and CCM integrity check
  • Limit access to approved device MAC IDs
  • Monitors RF environment for approved/rogue radios

Flexible and Reliable

  • Power over Ethernet (PoE) enables radio placement near antenna to reduce antenna cable costs and improve wireless network performance
  • Single radio operates as an access point and repeater/bridge and client
  • Automatic network configuration (can be prioritized or fixed) with self-healing network and master redundancy for reliable large networks (e.g. SCADA)

Easy to Configure and Monitor

  • Built-in web server for browser-based configuration and remote diagnostics
  • Included OPC Server for HMI-based RF network diagnostics

Backed by ProSoft Technology

  • Industrial data communications experts who understand your protocols, devices, and applications
  • Indoor/outdoor radio network design assistance - accessory selection, path studies, and site survey
  • Three year standard warranty


Use the RLXIB-IHW-66 in applications where secure, high-speed, untethered Ethernet connectivity is required outdoors or in indoor environments requiring dust-tight or water-tight protection:

  • Connect to moving or remote industrial devices while providing wireless coverage for mobile workers' PDAs and laptops
  • Combine voice, video and data on a single, high speed industrial wireless network
  • Use for applications generating many packets per second or with high aggregate data requirements such as I/O messaging and client/server based HMI
