IWLAN RCoax Cable

The radiating cable for complex radio environments

Description

RCoax radiating cables operated as antennae from SCALANCE W access points provide reliable radio links in areas in which conventional antenna technology can only be installed at considerable expense (e.g. for cranes, lifts or rail-mounted vehicles).

Two versions are available for use in the Industrial Wireless LAN sector with frequency bands 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz.

Field of application (e.g.: monorail conveyors)


Detail

The radiating cable is routed alongside the traversing path of the mobile stations, e.g. in the rail of an overhead monorail conveyor. Due to its special radiation characteristic, it is an antenna that can be laid as cable. It ensures a reliable radio link even at locations where otherwise complex omnidirectional or directional antenna systems would be required.


Features

  • Rugged coaxial cable which can be easily installed

  • Two cables for use in the Industrial Wireless LAN sector with frequency bands 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz

  • Connection as external antenna to SCALANCE W780 Access Points

  • Linking of mobile stations via SCALANCE W740 client modules and IWLAN/PB Link PN IO

  • Suitable for use in hazardous areas (Zone 2); no special approvals necessary


Advantages

  • Maximum reliability due to a controlled and defined radio link

  • Contact-free data transmission, thus wear-free and low-maintenance

  • Cost savings through replacement of contact conductors and trailing cables

  • Investment protection through integration of PROFIBUS devices by means of IWLAN/PB Link PN IO
