Data Acquisition & Telemetry


Hirschmann WLAN devices Ex certified

July 2011 Data Acquisition & Telemetry

The Hirschmann BAT54-Rail and BAT300-Rail WLAN access points and clients have both ISA 12.12.01 Class 1 Div 2 and ATEX IEC/EN 60079 Zone II certification, extending the scope of potential WLAN applications. Equipped with suitable protective cases, these BAT devices can now be used anywhere in the world in potentially explosive environments, such as those found in the oil, gas or mining industries. In addition to the high level of safety, they also offer maximum performance and flexibility.

The BAT300-Rail access points are compliant with protection class IP40 and support the IEEE802.11n (300 Mbit/s) wireless communications standard as well as MIMO technology, so ensuring a stable wireless connection even in the event of problems such as reflections. The BAT54-Rail devices have up to two radio modules operating at either 2,4 or 5 GHz. A version with a single WLAN interface is also available.

Suitable for top-hat rail mounting, these access points and clients are flexible enough for use in a wide range of situations such as in control cabinets or distribution boxes. In combination with BAT WLC controllers, they can be centrally configured and managed to permitt simple administration of extensive WLAN networks.
