Phoenix RAD-80211 802.11a/b/g Ethernet Radios with IEEE 802.11i Security

802.11a/b/g Ethernet Radios with IEEE 802.11i Security

The RAD-80211… are industrial radio transceivers that conform to IEEE standards 802.11a/b/g. These models allow users to configure access point, bridge or client modes for use in a wireless Ethernet network. They feature the latest high-security IEEE standard 802.11i with AES encryption and optional 802.1x authentication.

The RAD-80211… products support TCP/IP, UDP and IP v4 protocols with all programming and radio diagnostics accessible via a simple integrated web server. The devices also feature user upgradeable firmware. The RAD-80211… transceivers can be used in license-free 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz bands.

Integrating 802.11 networks with new and existing PLC networks is now easier than ever through the use of integrated serial ports. RS-232 and RS-422/485 ports allow integration of legacy serial devices onto Ethernet network. With protocol conversion, legacy Modbus RTU devices can now be accessed using Modbus TCP with no additional hardware. The bus connection allows wirelessly accessible I/O through the 802.11 network. All together, this can make facility expansion and retrofitting easier than ever before.

• IP54 wall-mount and IP20 DIN rail-mount packages for use on the factory floor or in a control cabinet.
• Functions as an access point, client or bridge allowing the devices to work in a variety of applications.
• Supports data rates up to 54 Mbps in both 5 GHz (802.11a) and 2.4 GHz (802.11b/g) bands creating more versatility for the wireless network.
• Security features WEP, WPA, 802.11i (WPA2) 128-bit AES encryption and MAC Address checking provide for a trusted connection.
• RS-232 and RS-422/485 ports allow integration of serial devices onto Ethernet network (built-in device server).
• Receive antenna diversity to improve radio performance and reliability.
• Programming and network diagnostics are accessed via integrated, plant floor-friendly web server, and ITfriendly SNMP; no additional software needed.
• Modbus RTU/TCP compatible for process and industrial applications.
• I/O bus (RAD-80211-XD-BUS version only) allows control of up to eight I/O expansion modules via Modbus RTU/TCP over a wireless 802.11 network.
• Flexible mix of I/O and serial devices can be connected to the same radio without extra hardware (RAD-80211- XD-BUS version only).
