DATASHEET 802.11abg Industrial Hotspot™ RLX2-IHW The ProSoft Technology 802.11abg Industrial Hotspot (RLX2-IHW) is a cost-effective industrial-grade wireless Ethernet solution with Power over Ethernet (PoE) and Serial Encapsulation. The RLX2-IHW has an RF data rate up to 54 Mbps, using the IEEE 802.11b/g (2.4 GHz band) and 802.11a (5 GHz band) standards. Designed for global installations, the RLX2-IHW offers robust Industrial features including Fast Roaming, hazardous location certifications, Personality Module (microSD card included) for quick field replacement, IGMP Snooping, repeater mode for extending distance, remote management software, OPC server diagnostics, extended temperature range, high vibration/shock resistance, and din-rail mounting. Features Benefits 802.11a, b, and g Access Point, Bridge, Repeater, and Client modes in one radio All-in-one radio supports global installations in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz spread spectrum bands (fully compatible with RLXIB-IHA, IHG, and IHW networks) Hazardous zone ratings; industrial operating temperatures; vibration and shock resistant Dependable operation in critical control systems and extreme environments Fast Roaming (less than 50 ms) with Full Bridging Maintains seamless, high speed connections to one or more devices on moving equipment and machines (such as cranes, AGVs, and carriers) as they travel between Access Points IGMP Snooping & Packet Filtering Optimizes UDP multicast traffic for superior EtherNet/IP I/O communications 802.11i, WPA2, and 128-bit AES encryption Ensures secure networking with advanced authentication and encryption 12/24 VDC and PoE power options Support for common industrial power sources or use PoE to reduce cabling costs Built-in Serial Device Server Wirelessly connect serial (Modbus, DNP 3, etc.) devices over 802.11 wireless networks Built-in Web Server Simple local and remote configuration, monitoring, and wireless network diagnostics IH Browser Software Utility Centralized configuration and remote management of Industrial Hotspot networks Disaster recovery feature (microSD) Quick field replacement without need of programming software or operator training Specifications Radio 2.412 GHz to 2.462 GHz (FCC) 2.412 GHz to 2.472 GHz (ETSI) 5.150 GHz to 5.250 GHz (FCC/ETSI) 5.725 GHz to 5.850 GHz (FCC) 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11i Wireless Standards Transmit Power (Programmable) 2.4 GHz: Up to 100 mW (20 dBm) 5 GHz: Up to 64 mW (18 dBm) (varies by country) 802.11b:11, 5.5, 2,1 Mbps (DSSS,BPSK,QPSK,CCK) Channel Data Rates 802.11g: 54, 48, 36, 24, 18, 12, 9, 6 Mbps (OFDM) (Modulation) 802.11a: 54, 48, 36, 24, 18, 12, 9, 6 Mbps (OFDM) -90 dBm @ 1 Mbps Receiver Sensitivity (Typical) -85 dBm @ 11 Mbps -82 dBm @ 24 Mbps -75 dBm @ 54 Mbps 1 to 13 (802.11b/g) Channels Selection 36, 40, 44, 48, 149, 153, 157, 161, 165 (802.11a) (Varies by country) WPA2 - 802.11i with 128 bit AES-CCM Security Legacy WPA TKIP, WEP support MAC ID filter, Admin password Frequency Band (Varies by country) Physical Enclosure Size Shock Vibration Ethernet Ports Serial Port Antenna Ports Weight Environmental Operating Temperature Humidity External Power PoE (Power over Ethernet) Peak Power Consumption Extruded aluminum with DIN and panel mount 14.8 x 11.8 x 3.8 cm (H x W x D) 5.82 x 4.64 x 1.48 in (H x W x D) IEC 60068 2-6 (20g, 3-Axis) IEC 60068 2-27 (5g, 10Hz to 150Hz) (1) 10/100/1000 Base-T, RJ45 connector (1) DB9 female (serial tunneling & encapsulation) (2) RP-SMA connectors (1 trans/rec, 1 rec only) 1.06 lbs (479g) -40°C to +75°C (-40°F to +167°F) Up to 100% RH, with no condensation 10 to 24 VDC 802.3af Compliant < 6W Additional Products ® ProSoft Technology offers a full complement of hardware and software solutions for a wide variety of industrial communication platforms.
