SCALANCE W1748 Client Modules

11ac standard for industrial applications


Wireless transmission in accordance with the latest WLAN standard IEEE 802.11ac Wave 2 in harsh industrial environments: There are no limits to wireless transmission with the SCALANCE W1788 access points and W1748 client modules.

IWLAN applications with particularly high bandwidths can be optimally implemented with the 11ac standard, e.g. in cases of high user density or high-performance video transmission.

Furthermore, the innovative MU-MIMO (Multiuser-MIMO) technology ensures an even more efficient data transmission rate, and can be used to structure data flows. The managed two-port switch integrated in the client module offers various networking options such as the segmentation of the network by means of various VLANs per port. Even installation outside the control cabinet is not a problem thanks to the high IP65 degree of protection as well as securely screwed M12 and N-Connect connectors.

Thanks to the proven iPRP (industrial parallel redundancy protocol) iFeature, seamless redundancy is possible via WLAN. In mobile applications, such as automated guided vehicles or railway applications, redundant wireless communication ensures reliable data transmission. The new industrial client modules also feature the proven SCALANCE W parameterization interfaces.
