WiFi Access point extends networks

Antaira WiFi Access Point

ARS-7235-5E-AC-T builds stronger, more resilient wireless connections for industrial applications.

An industrial dual-radio wireless LAN access point optimized with added router capabilities securely extends connectivity to the ever-growing number of WiFi devices deployed on high-density plant floors.

Empowered by 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi and boasting ultra-reliable stability thanks to the embedded Qualcomm IPQ4029 SoC chipset, the Antaira ARS-7235-5E-AC-T accelerates data transmission speeds up to 867Mbps to facilitate uninterrupted access to a steady, strong wireless signal. Two adjustable MIMO antennas mitigate interference to allow IT professionals to squeeze every inch of reliable range from coverage.

The ARS-7235-5E-AC-T will add value in countless use cases including the enabling of remote monitoring and operation of machinery in harsh industrial environments, the providing of real-time access to WiFi sensors for machine diagnostics and troubleshooting, and supplying wireless connectivity to Autonomous Guided Vehicles (AGVs) and Autonomous Mobile Robots.

Its dual-radio (2.4GHz/5GHz) improves plant productivity by enabling multiple devices to concurrently tap into secure, high-speed WiFi signals and automatically find the least congested channel. Five Gigabit Ethernet ports help customers future-proof their networks as they work to digitally transform their operations with next-generation smart sensors, IP cameras, and industrial IoT devices.

Another box the ARS-7235-5E-AC-T checks is compatibility with ConnectVPN, a cloud-based Virtual Private Network (VPN) developed by Antaira for their wireless router series. ConnectVPN implements encrypted VPN tunnels and WiFi routing to securely configure, monitor, and collect data from connected remote devices.
