Introduction

WLn-xROAD 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 or in any rotating machinery, for material handling, real-time information transmission, and inventory management.

 

The device relies on the multi-streams MIMO technology that contributes to an expanded coverage, higher data throughput and increased radio link reliability.

 

It fulfills the most severe requirements in terms of operating environment: from -25°C to +70°C, shock and vibration proof, protection against dust and water projections (IP66).

 

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