Weidmüller's IE-WLAN-BRIDGE-WAVE: WLAN-Bridge for Industrial Ethernet networks added to the WaveLine family of products
Serial devices simply and reliably integrated in IE networks with the WLAN-BRIDGE-WAVE
Weidmüller's product family WaveLine can now link or extend industrial networks by utilising WLAN functionality. It is a simple fact that wireless LAN can today not only be utilised anywhere where cabling does not provide an effective solution or a mobile network termination is required but also in production facilities and plant. 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 (108 mm x 22.5 mm x 127.8 mm L/W/H), 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.
Integrated in the WLAN-Bridge ex works are: a (non-isolated) RS232 port and an RJ45 port as well as an antenna. Besides the functions autonegotiation and autocrossing (RJ45) the WLAN module is also equipped with a redundant power supply. Extensive security measures have been designed into the WLAN Bridge: optional end-to-end 128, 192 or 256 bit AES encryption, WPA-PSK/ TKIP* and alternatively 64/128 bit WEP/WPA2 encryption**.
User-friendly configuration is assured via the serial interface or the web interface, which offers a pass-word protected configuration environment. As well as being suitable for installing on mounting rails the slimly designed WLAN-Bridge module features an integrated web server. The module supports the following protocols: ARP, UDP, TCP, Telnet, ICMP, SNMP, DHCP, BOOTP, Auto IP, HTTP, SMTP, TFT. Three LEDs indicate the module is operating correctly: Data Rate, Power, Connection/Activity.
* WPA authentication (Wi-Fi Protected Access) with a shared key (PSK - Preshared Key) together with a TKIP encryption (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) - also known as WPA-PSK/TKIP.
** WEP/WPA2 encryption (Wired Equivalent Privacy)/WI-Fi Protected Access 2. WPA2 implements the fundamental functions of the security standard IEEE 802.11i.
