For facilities moving to wireless infrastructures, Phoenix Contact's new high-power industrial radios provide secure wireless communication over a long-distance, wireless mesh network of up to 40 radios. The RAD-80211-XD/HP and RAD-80211- XD/HP-BUS feature 400 mW (26 dBm) transmit power and 128bit AES encryption.
An auto-bridge mesh mode allows the network to self-form and heal if a radio drops out of the network. This results in an uninterrupted flow of data even if other bridge devices or network segments in the data's path fail.
The high-power radios conform to standards 802.11b/g and operate in the 2.4 GHz band. With the radios' simple, IT-friendly embedded software, any network PC with a Web browser can configure the devices. Built-in RS-232 and RS-422/485 device servers allow the integration of serial devices onto the wireless Ethernet network.
Both the RAD-80211-XD/HP and RAD-80211-XD/HP-BUS units are approved for use in Class I, Division 2 hazardous locations.
