Serial devices integrate with WLAN-Bridge-Wave

05 August 2008

Weidmüller has developed the WaveLine Bridge module so that serial terminal devices can be integrated in existing IE network structures. WaveLine now also allows users to utilise WLAN to connect or extend their industrial network. Supporting wireless LAN (IEEE 802.11 b, 802.11 g) the module IE-WLAN-Bridge-Wave comes with a non-isolated RS232 interface.

For user-friendly operation the module can be configured via the serial interface or a web interface – including a password-protected configuration environment. The WLAN-Bridge-Wave boasts an integrated internal web server and has an extensive range of designed-in security mechanisms.

The WaveLine WLAN-Bridge offers a suitable platform from which to gain a foothold in the world of Industrial Ethernet or it can be utilised to provide a simple method of connecting terminal devices to IE networks. The industrial-grade WLAN-Bridge-Wave (degree of protection IP20) is supplied in a compactly designed plastic housing, flammability class VO, and can be utilised in operating temperatures ranging from 0 °C to 55 °C. Supporting the WLAN standards IEEE 802.11b/g the module facilitates disturbance free operations in production facilities. And not to forget a 10 Base-T/100 Base-TX (copper) network interface.
