The ProSoft Technology Fast Industrial Hotspot (RLX2-IHNF) provides secure wireless solutions for plant-floor, SCADA automation, process control systems and mobile worker Wi-Fi infrastructure. It operates in the 2.4 or 5 GHz bands, including DFS channels, and is good for applications up to 2 mi. / 3.2 km.The Hotspot supports Access Point, Repeater, and Client modes. 802.11n technology delivers fast data rates up to 300 Mbps. This provides excellent packet-per-second performance and robust communications in rugged industrial environments. The 802.11n MIMO & Channel bonding supports demanding wireless applications such as Ethernet I/O and high-resolution video.The included IH Browser configuration and monitoring software allows the user to view network topology, assign IP addresses, monitor network diagnostics, and update radio firmware. The optional OPC Diagnostic Server is ideal for managing long-range wireless SCADA networks.
IGMP Snooping & Packet Filtering optimizes UDP multicast traffic for superior EtherNet/IP I/O communications
EtherNet/IP™- or Modbus®-based PLCs/PACs can use message instructions to read diagnostic information from the radios, helping to reduce down time when troubleshooting wireless network problems.
Supports the ability to communicate with multiple Ethernet devices when used with existing third-party wireless infrastructures
Ultra-Fast Roaming (under 10ms) maintains seamless, high-speed connections to one or more devices on moving equipment and machines (such as cranes, AGVs, and carriers) as they travel between Access Points
Disaster recovery feature allows the radio configuration to be stored on a microSD card for quick field replacement
RADIUS security ensures secure networking with advanced authentication and encryption
802.11i, WPA-2 Personal/Enterprise using 128-bit AES encryption ensures secure networking
Virtual Local Area Networks (VLAN) allow for secure network segmentation
Connect serial networks (Modbus, DNP 3, etc.) over 802.11 wireless networks
Quality of Service (QoS) provides data prioritization for I/O control devices, video data, etc.
Supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) to reduce cabling costs
