June 20, 2017–The FL WLAN 1101 wireless module from Phoenix Contact combines access point and antenna technologies in a single housing. It is mounted like an antenna directly to the machine, mobile vehicle, or control cabinet, saving space within the cabinet.
Two internal antennas with multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) technology provide coverage. This is designed to eliminate the cost of external antenna systems and simplifies the WLAN connection to the machine.
The WLAN 1101 is mounted using single-hole assembly connected to the system via standard power and RJ45 Ethernet connectors.
The WLAN 1101 is designed for industrial environments. It is shock-proof, according to IK08, so it can even withstand strong mechanical loads.
