SCALANCE W780 Access Points

Indoors, outdoors, in harsh environments


Using real-time communication where reliable data transmission is required – and wireless! The SCALANCE W780 access points and SCALANCE W740 client modules support data rates of up to 450 Mbps according to IEEE 802.11n standard, allowing you, for example, to position the fully mobile clients across several radio cells using MIMO technology.

Use iFeatures such as iREF (industrial Range Extension Function) activated via the KEY-PLUG W780 iFeatures, to open new application areas: Data transmission along rail tracks, in holiday parks or even applications with EMERGENCY STOP function via a mobile panel become possible – whether indoors, outdoors or in harsh environmental conditions.
