Introduction

EmbedAir100 module by ACKSYS is designed to quickly and easily add a WiFi connectivity to any Ethernet equipment or simply to allow you to build your own industrial WiFi device.

 

Ready to use standalone, requiring no external software or drivers, EmbedAir100 reduces dramatically development costs, shorten time to market and guarantees the sustainability of your device. Its long-term availability will ensure you solid returns from investment and allow you to restrict costly operations like design and certification, unlike most commercially available modules on the market. In addition, EmbedAir100 is fully compatible with its predecessors : WL-BRIDGE-OEM and WLg-LINK-OEM introduced in 2004 and 2006 respectively (same footprint and functional compatibility).

 

EmbedAir100 is an extremely compact state-of-the-art solution and supports WiFi access point, client, repeater & MESH point modes. These functions can be operated simultaneously. EmbedAir100 offers advanced security features including 802.11i (EAP authentication with Radius server/WPA/WPA2 Enterprise), tunnels with fully encrypted data, firewall, VLAN...

 

Its built-in 802.11n 2T2R radio reaches 300 Mbps and carries any kind of Ethernet based protocols such as UDP, TCP, Profinet, Modbus/TCP, Safe Ethernet, Ethernet IP...

 

EmbedAir100 meets industrial specifications (shock and vibration proof, large temperature range, long-lasting product design...) of the most demanding applications such as onboard computers, CCTV, medical equipment, mining equipment, military DCE, explosion proof devices... Its fast roaming feature (<30ms) makes it also ideal for any kind of mobile applications such as AGVs for example.

 

EmbedAir100 is footprint and pin-compatible with its predecessor (WLg-LINK-OEM) in order to maintain compatibility with existing applications.
