Industrial wireless access point enables data transmission speeds up to 867 Mbps

09 March, 2017

Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, has expanded its industrial wireless portfolio with the addition of the BAT867-R Wireless Access Point - a compact and rugged device designed to help industrial applications maximize efficiency and performance.

“Space and budget are limited in industrial settings, like discrete automation and machine building, so we designed our newest wireless access point to include a refined set of features to help reduce the device’s size, as well as overall networking costs,” said Khachig Arjinian, product manager at Belden. “With growing bandwidth requirements, we also took data transmission speeds into consideration, and our BAT867-R is the fastest wireless device in Belden’s portfolio, with the technology to transmit data up to 867 Mbps.”

The BAT867-R offers essential interfaces for wireless local area network (WLAN) applications, including one radio, one Ethernet port and one power supply. “We only want our customers to pay for the features they need, so we selected a priority set of features to offer a cost-effective solution that can still transmit data at high speeds,” added Arjinian.

Wireless access points, like the BAT867-R, enable many benefits for customers, such as:

• High levels of flexibility and productivity by monitoring and operating machines from tablets or smartphones

• Remote access of machines for maintenance, diagnostics and troubleshooting

• Reliable wireless connectivity for mobile equipment and automated guided vehicles

Used as clients, routers or bridges, these access points feature IEEE 802.11ac technology and are backward compatible to a/b/g/n standards. The BAT867-R’s rugged design also ensures compliance with challenging requirements and approvals for use in harsh industrial settings.
