Introduction

WLg-xROAD/S gives access to any serial equipments from Windows, UNIX & Linux computers connected to your WiFi Ethernet TCP/IP network, make it possible to communicate between two distant serial equipments through the network, or directly with a peer to peer connection (Ad-Hoc mode).

 

It is a rugged equipment designed for applications in road transportation, depots, warehouses, agriculture, manufacturing floors, docks, distribution centers, shipyards and lumberyards … it can be mounted in trucks, city buses, forklifts, trailers, tractors or cranes, for material handling,
real-time information transmission, and inventory management.

 

It fulfills the most severe requirements in terms of operating environment:
from -25°C to +70°C, shock and vibration proof according to MIL-STD-810F standard, protection against dust and water projections (IP65).

 

The product is E-marked (CE standard for electronic equipments installed aboard vehicle), and can thus be installed in full safety aboard all on-road equipments.
