XPress Ethernet Bridge - Datasheet
XPress™ Ethernet Bridge
900 MHz Wireless Ethernet Bridge
The XPress Ethernet Bridge provides a secure point-topoint or point-to-multipoint IP connection without the
expense and limitations of physical cabling.
The XPress Ethernet Bridge replaces costly wiring with a
solution that can wirelessly connect industrial PLCs, digital
signs, security cameras, access controllers and more. With a
range of up to 15 miles, the ability to transmit through as many
as 10 standard walls, a 1.5 Mbps data rate, and the added range
and capabilities of the 900 MHz band, the easy-to-use, longrange XPress Ethernet Bridge communicates where Wi-Fi and
other wireless data products fall short.
Application Highlight
The XPress Ethernet Bridge features a built-in spectrum analyzer,
allowing users to monitor RF interference. Frequency agility
enables the product to automatically select the best available
radio channel at start-up, monitor the signal-to-noise ratio and
move the network to a new channel if necessary. A web interface
simplifies installation, allows users to monitor packet success
and signal strength and facilitates remote troubleshooting.
The XPress Ethernet Bridge is housed in a weatherproof
enclosure. It is available in pre-paired units or single units for
point-to-multipoint applications.
