The connectBlue RWE251s wireless LAN rugged ethernet port adapter features WLAN dual-band functionality. It is suited to industrial and medical applications where the ethernet cable needs to be replaced with a robust wireless connection, or when the user needs to connect to a WLAN infrastructure.
The device supports dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n, making it easier to identify interference-free channels and connect to networks that utilise both the WLAN 2.4 and the 5 GHz radio bands.
The external antenna allows the freedom to select where to position the device, eg, inside a metal cabinet. The antenna is also omnidirectional so it is not necessary to align the units for optimal wireless connectivity.
The product offers easy configuration either via ‘button-push’ method or web configuration pages. It is IP65-classed and can operate in the extended temperature range of -30 to 65°C.
The wireless ethernet port adapter is part of the connectBlue product range of wireless products in industrial housings. Versions with an internal antenna or Bluetooth technology are also available.
