Wireless access point for remote and difficult-to-reach areas

10 June 2014

To make accessing critical production data easier within the manufacturing enterprise, Rockwell Automation has launched the Allen-Bradley Stratix 5100 wireless access point (WAP) featuring a work group bridge. 

Unlike typical wireless clients, which only connect a single IP address, the Stratix 5100 WAP allows engineers to connect up to 20 IP addresses simultaneously – helping reduce design time when integrating machines and equipment into the industrial control network.

The Stratix 5100 WAP is suited to use in industrial networks needing secure and reliable wireless connectivity. Enterprise-class silicon and optimised radios deliver a robust mobility experience that includes 802.11a/b/g/n with 3 by 4 multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology and three spatial streams.
 
“Automation engineers increasingly need access to more detailed production data and to solve automation network connectivity problems,” explained Rob Snyder, product manager, Rockwell Automation. “With the Stratix 5100 wireless access point and work group bridge, users can access production data from remote and difficult-to-reach areas. They can share this data between automation systems or feed it into information systems for analysis and improved decision making.”
