OpenBAT from Hirschmann

Technews Industry Guide - Wireless 2015 Industrial Wireless

Individually configurable via Internet, the robust access points in the new OpenBAT family guarantee stable WLAN connections, even in the most demanding industrial applications. They can therefore be used as part of communications solutions that were previously the exclusive domain of cable-based networks.

With Clear Space, ESD protection and the option of integrated high-voltage power supply, the OpenBAT family sets new standards in lifetime operational performance. This also leads to a significant reduction in the total cost of ownership. Looking to offer more than 20 industry and country specific certifications, the new family of OpenBAT access points is an ideal solution for WLAN applications. Other features include:

• A unique platform concept that permits tailor-made solutions with an optimum price-performance ratio.

• Innovative wireless technology that guarantees maximum WLAN availability.

• Integrated ESD protection combined with robust hardware ensures high reliability and an extremely long operational lifetime for the access points.

• All OpenBAT devices comply with the IEEE 802.11n WLAN standard – enabling data rates of up to 450 Mbit/s in both the 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz bands by using MIMO antenna technology. This means that the access points – also employable as clients, routers or bridges – can be used to quickly set up meshed networks, wireless distribution systems and point-to-point connections. Also possible are WAN and VPN applications.
