ProSoft Technology Weatherproof IP67 Fast Industrial Hotspot (RLX2-IHNF-W)

The ProSoft Technology Weatherproof IP67 Fast Industrial Hotspot (RLX2-IHNF-W) is designed for harsh environments and features an IP66/67 rating.

It is water-tight for use in extreme weather applications such as offshore oil rigs, and dust-tight for use in mining applications. It operates in the 2.4 or 5 GHz bands, including DFS channels, and is good for applications up to 2 mi. / 3.2 km.

The Hotspot supports Access Point, Repeater, and Client modes. The 802.11n technology delivers fast data rates up to 300 Mbps. This provides excellent packet- per-second performance and robust communications in rugged industrial environments. The 802.11n MIMO & Channel bonding supports demanding wireless applications such as Ethernet I/O and high-resolution video.

The included IH Browser configuration and monitoring software allows the user to view network topology, assign IP addresses, monitor network diagnostics, and update radio firmware. The optional OPC Diagnostic Server is ideal for managing long-range wireless SCADA networks.
