APXN Series - Industrial Wireless WIFI Access Point
The AirborneM2M™ line of industrial wireless access points is built for networking equipment in an array of machine-to-machine (M2M) applications. AirborneM2M™ Access Point features industrial strength packaging and support a wide temperature rating (-40° to 85°C) to withstand challenging M2M environments. Power options include 5-36VDC input or PoE 802.3af (Power over Ethernet) on select models.
Combination Access Point and Client Capability
The AirborneM2M™ Access Point enables M2M equipment to create a self sufficient Wi-Fi network and easy access to equipment data or resources from WiFi enabled devices. The product also has the capability to be switched from an access point to a client; supporting both a single or dual RS-232/422/485 serial ports or a single 10/100 Mbps Ethernet port. The Ethernet port can be placed into either a router or bridge mode.
The AirborneM2M™ products establish wireless connections over both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. Whenever the 2.4 GHz airspace is overcrowded with competing wireless transmission, AirborneM2M™ products can be switched over to 5 GHz band to keep data flowing.
Enterprise Class Security
Security protocols are important to mission critical wireless M2M applications. The AirborneM2M™ Access Point multi-layer security approach addresses the requirements of Enterprise-class networks and corporate IT departments. These advanced security features include wireless security (802.11i/WAP2 enterprise); authentication security using WPA2 (AES-CCMP) and device security (multi-layered encryption). The AirborneM2M™ access point includes a fully functional DHCP server to provide unique addresses for each authenticated client. Up to 10 clients can be supported on the local Wi-Fi network.
