ProSoft Technology’s 802.11 Fast Industrial Hotspot features breakthrough advancements in client/bridge fast roaming between access points, Ethernet packet optimisation, and enhanced diagnostics. These expand secure wireless into critical mobile machine and material handling systems.

The new capabilities provide seamless high speed Ethernet connections for machines and platforms travelling long distances in assembly plants, crane systems, automated guided vehicles and mining. The secure, high-speed wireless network reduces project costs, while improving productivity by eliminating mechanical festooning, rails and slip rings for economical and reliable mobile applications.

The fast roam technology features use less than 50 msec time between access points and provides full device bridging. The module provides secure 802.11i/128 bit AES Encryption and has advanced management tools, which include IH Browser Utility, web server and OPC server. The microSD card will automatically store/load configurations, reducing downtime. Designed for extreme environments and hazardous locations, it is an ideal wireless solution for PLC/PAC networking, remote I/O, safety I/O, plant backhaul networking, remote video and mobile worker connectivity.

Featuring extended operating temperature range (-40 to 75°C), it has agency approvals and certifications with Class1, Division 2 and ATEX Zone 2.
