WaveNet-Ex

WiFi MIMO access point & Mesh router

Overview

  • Aluminum IP66 enclosure, ATEX & IECEx, group II (above-ground industries), category 2 (adapted to areas 1, 2, 21 & 22)
  • MIMO access point 300 Mbps, 802.11n dual band
  • Gigabit Ethernet network interface
  • Up to 3 intrinsically safe RF outputs (support any type of antennas)

Introduction

WaveNet-Ex is designed for industrial applications in explosive environment like chemical industries, refineries, electric stations, very dusty environments as well as those where sparks and electric arcs occur.                                   

The three antenna connectors protected by an intrinsic barrier allow the use of non-ATEX antennas for a reduced installation cost and an increased flexibility.

 

Thanks to its built-in WEB interface, the setup of the device is achieved using the web browser installed on your computer (Internet Explorer, Netscape, Mozilla ...).

WaveNet-Ex works with any kind of industrial protocols carried by Ethernet TCP/IP.
