Wireless access point designed for hazardous areas

01 October 2008

Motorola has announced the latest member of its outdoor access point (AP) range, the Haz-location (Haz-Loc) certified AP-5181, to extend the wireless enterprise into the harshest work environments.

Petrochemical, oil and gas, aerospace, power generation and utilities, mining and manufacturing organisations can deploy AP-5181 APs easily without requiring extra cabling by utilising mesh. Motorola’s mesh technology enhances the flexibility on AP placement and lowers the cost for providing network access.

The deployment of AP-5181 APs extends the IT network outdoors in hard-to-wire environments. Safety applications such as Wi-Fi based video surveillance and personnel location can now be easily and cost
effectively deployed in all plant areas. The Motorola AP-5181 is Haz-Loc certified Class1Div2 (C1D2) and ATEX Zone 2 compliant.

Motorola’s AP-5181 AP has been engineered for flexibility and ease-ofuse for wireless enterprise deployments. Its adaptive architecture enables it to operate as a stand-alone AP or as a switch managed access point for centralised management. The AP-5181 also provides state-of-the art security with support for Wi-Fi protected access (WPA) and WPA2. Additionally, Motorola’s AP-5181 enables its wireless intrusion
protection system (WIPS) to monitor, detect, protect and help prevent intrusions to the wireless network.
