Access Points SCALANCE W1788

11ac standard for industrial applications


Wireless transmission in accordance with the current 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, for example, in case of high user density or high-performance video transmission.

The innovative MU-MIMO (Multiuser-MIMO) technology ensures even more efficient data transmission rate. It can be used to structure data flows. The switch with two managed Ethernet Gigabit ports integrated in the Access Point offers various networking options such as link aggregation or redundancy.

Even installation outside the control cabinet is not a problem thanks to the high IP65 protection class as well as screw-fixed M12 and N-Connect.

Thanks to the proven iFeature iPRP, bumpless redundancy via WLAN is possible. In mobile applications, such as automated guided vehicles or railway applications, redundant wireless communication ensures reliable data transmission. The new Industry Access Points also offer the proven SCALANCE W parameterization interfaces.
