Direct-Mounting Wireless Module
FL WLAN 1101 saves cabinet space and reduces installation time and costs
The new FL WLAN 1101 wireless module from Phoenix Contact combines access point and antenna technologies in a single housing. In contrast to a standard DIN rail-mounted WLAN module, it is mounted like an antenna directly to the machine, mobile vehicle, or control cabinet, saving space within the cabinet.
Two internal high-performance antennas with multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) technology provide reliable coverage. This eliminates the cost of external antenna systems and simplifies the WLAN connection to the machine. There is no need for expensive WLAN planning or installation of antenna technology.
Because the WLAN 1101 does not occupy space in the control cabinet, it is simple to retrofit. It is mounted using single-hole assembly connected to the system via standard power and RJ45 Ethernet connectors.
The WLAN 1101 is designed for industrial environments. It is shock-proof, according to IK08, so it can even withstand strong mechanical loads. Communication between humans and machines is becoming more and more vital to the industry, so having a fast and stable wireless reception is crucial.
