The huge potential, especially of wireless communication, opens up new perspectives here – from partial modernization of plants, right up to optimizing complex logistics or production processes. But IWLAN is also being widely used in industry-oriented applications. The high data transfer rates required there allow applications in association with video streaming as well as the transmission of visualization or language data. High deterministic or redundancy concept requirements can be covered by the IWLAN infrastructure. Siemens offers solutions for reliable automation with industrial wireless communication based on Wireless Remote Networks, Industrial Wireless LAN, and WirelessHART. WirelessHART Wireless Remote Networks Continuous communication between widely separated plant sections in the area of water/wastewater, or high-speed remote maintenance access to machines and plants on the other side of the world - these are just two of the countless ways you can reap the benefits of Wireless Remote Communication. Thanks to integration in the SINAUT telecontrol system or an HMI/SCADA system, transferred process data is available at any time via mobile radio. WirelessHART is an open industry standard, developed for the particular requirements of wireless communication at the field level in the process industry. It meets all specific requirements for reliability, security, economy, and user-friendly operation system-wide. With more than 30 million installed devices worldwide, HART technology is the most frequently used communication protocol for intelligent process instrumentation at the field level. WirelessHART is backwardscompatible with wired HART technology and thus offers maximum investment security. Industrial Wireless LAN Wireless solutions are increasingly becoming a matter of course in machines and plants. In the case of high data communication requirements, Industrial Wireless LAN (IWLAN) backs innovations like deterministic radio and the Industrial Ethernet standard PROFINET.

This significantly increases the level of effectiveness, since all production and management stations and systems can be used end-to-end. By connecting an IWLAN access point to the Ethernet network, the latter is expanded by radio functionality. The connection of stations by radio is via their integral WLAN interface, e.g. for a laptop, or via an IWLAN client module to which a station or a further network segment can be connected by cable. Existing controllers and processes can be accessed without incurring excessive additional cabling costs. Stations linked by radio can move freely within the range of the Industrial Wireless LAN by using a radio link and the roaming function. text IWLAN for industrial and industry-related areas. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 3 IWLAN from Siemens . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 7 IWLAN applications . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 8 Intralogistics Maximum flexibility through access to the data communication with the moving unit . . . . . . . . . . . . 8 Automotive production Communication with moving stations in storage and retrieval systems, conveying routes, production lines, rotating machines, vehicles . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 10 Crane control Fast, secure, and error-free communication, high flexibility and plant availability . . . . . . . . . . . . . 12 Harbor plant / Container logistics Integration of an existing infrastructure, and interference-free radio network for automatic guided vehicles . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 14 Safety-related operation of robots Automation platform for general purposes . . . . . . . . 16 Local public transport Wireless coupling of communication segments for fast startup or low-cost networking . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 17 Industry-standard products for wireless communication . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 18 SCALANCE W - Access points . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 18 - IWLAN controllers and controller access points. . . . 18 - Client modules . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 19 Antennas and accessories . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 20 IWLAN RCoax cable. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 22 Field PG . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 24 Mobile Panel 277(F) IWLAN . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 24 ET200pro IWLAN . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 25 IWLAN/PB Link PN IO. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 26 Advantages at a glance . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 27 IWLAN for industrial and industry-related areas 3 © Siemens AG 2012 IWLAN for industrial and industry-related areas Powerful, rugged, secure 6ZLWK &3 2SHUDWRUFRQWURO PRQLWRULQJ ,QGXVWULDO(WKHUQHW $FFHVV3RLQW 6&$/$1&( :352 $FFHVV3RLQW 6&$/$1&( :352 6 &OLHQW0RGXOH 6&$/$1&( :352 &OLHQW0RGXOH 6&$/$1&( :352 $XWRPDWHGJXLGHGYHKLFOHV\VWHP$*96 )LHOG3* 1RWHERRN *B,.B;;B 6 Mobile controls in an automated guided vehicle system Our industrialized products for wireless communication are characterized by reliability, ruggedness, suitability to harsh industrial environments, and security. Radio infrastructure Instead of copper cables and fiber-optic cables, wireless transmission techniques use radio waves. The propagation characteristics of the electromagnetic waves can differ considerably and depend on the surrounding environment and the installed wireless infrastructure. SCALANCE W modules use techniques such as antenna switchover or diversity, high-quality receivers and fault-tolerant modulation procedures to enhance signal quality and to prevent interruption of radio communication. Extensions to the IEEE 802.11 standard also permit reliable, wireless transmission from PROFINET, form the basis for wireless safety applications and the transmission of video data with extremely short reply and update data. 4 IWLAN for industrial and industry-related areas Network solution with IWLAN Mobile data terminals, for example, facilitate a continuous information flow from the management level down to the production level. The IWLAN/PB Link PN IO is available for wireless connection of PROFIBUS devices. This enables fast, wireless, safe, and simple provision of information at the correct location and correct time. © Siemens AG 2012 Multipath propagation according to IEEE 802.11a/b/g (SISO) SCALANCE W788-1PRO SCALANCE W746-1PRO SCALANCE W788-1 M12 SCALANCE W748-1 M12 G_IK10_XX_30268 Multipath propagation according to IEEE 802.11n (MIMO) Multiple path propagation (MIMO) with SCALANCE W788-1 M12 and SCALANCE W748-1 M12 Ruggedness and industrial capability Reliability of data communication The SCALANCE W products can be exposed to fluctuations in the extended temperature range, or continuous contact with dust and water. Rugged enclosure and construction-based protection against shock and vibration allow use in harsh ambient conditions. Accessories such as antennas, power supplies and cables are also part of this concept and manufactured in line with industrial requirements. The international standard IEEE 802.11n makes wireless communication via IWLAN even more robust. The greatest advantage results from the use of multiple path propagation (Multiple Input, Multiple Output (MIMO)). This allows the devices parallel use of multiple antennas. A higher data transfer rate is thus achieved and fault susceptibility in environments with a high number of reflections is reduced. Power and data are transferred over one cable with Powerover-Ethernet, thus saving investment and maintenance costs. SCALANCE W products with IWLAN in accordance with IEEE 802.11n support up to three "streams" in the send and receive directions. The swap medium C-PLUG (Configuration Plug) saves engineering and configuration data, making device replacement possible in a short time and without specially trained personnel. This minimizes standstill times and saves training costs.

It automatically detects new access points, establishes a connection to them, and manages and coordinates access points and clients. This function allows wireless expansion of an Ethernet network without having to make changes to the existing network topology. The IWLAN controller connects, manages and coordinates all access point and clients such that the WLAN environment appears like several IP subnetworks with central management. The individual connections are additionally managed here, and the stations can therefore move securely and reliably throughout the entire radio network. With the IWLAN controller, the IWLAN wireless infrastructure can be divided into logical, service-based networks (Virtual Network Services). Different services, security requirements and access criteria can thus be reliably managed, and different user groups such as administrators, commissioning engineers, or visitors can use the same wireless network. For optimum capacity utilization of the IWLAN network, different applications such as Voice-over-IP (VoIP), video, and Internet access can use the same infrastructure. Diagnostics and management functions As well as centralized management and wireless network configuration, the WLC711 IWLAN controller also offers error recording, wireless network monitoring, and documentation of network statistics. © Siemens AG 2012 Client modules The Client Modules from the SCALANCE W740 product line are optimal for integrating Industrial Ethernet stations into Industrial Wireless LANs (IWLANs) for 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. • High data rates (up to 450 Mbit/s in conjunction with channel bonding) with 3x3 MIMO technology (Multiple Input, Multiple Output); here, SCALANCE W client modules use three streams each for simultaneous transmission and reception • Suitable for any application: - For installation in the control cabinet - For installation without a control cabinet • Reliable thanks to rugged enclosure, protected from water and dust (IP65), resistant to shock, vibration and electromagnetic fields • Complex applications with redundancy requirements and high bandwidths, e.g. for video, by using IEEE 802.11n • Configuration support by means of wizards and online help; easy management via Web server and SNMP • Fast replacement of devices in event of failure by means of optional C-PLUG (Configuration Plug) swap medium Industrial Wireless LAN according to IEEE 802.11 Client Modules Access Points Client Modules W786-2RR For interior environments W788 M12 W748 M12 W788-1RR / W788-2RR W747-1RR W788 RJ45 W748 RJ45 W784-1RR W747-1 W784-1 W744-1 / W746-1 802.11a/b/g For cabinets Field PG Wireless Devices 802.11a/g/n Mobile operating 802.11a/b/g W786 RJ45 / W786 SFP 802.11a/g/n For outside environments IWLAN / PB Link PN IO Mobile Panel 277F (IWLAN) ET200pro IWLAN G_IK10_XX_30279 Access Points Industrial Wireless LAN incl. iFeatures SCALANCE W access points and client modules Industry-standard products for wireless communication 19 © Siemens AG 2012 Industry-standard products for wireless communication Antennas and accessories Antennas Remote antennas increase the reliability of wireless links by optimizing the receiving and emission of signals. • Unidirectional and omnidirectional antennas for different radio field architectures • Use in Industrial Wireless LAN (IWLAN) and WLAN in accordance with IEEE 802.11 at 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz with transmission rates of up to 450 Mbit/s • Coordinated range of antennas for different applications both indoors and outdoors • Antennas with two (dual-slant) or three (MIMO) connections for enhanced data throughput and increased reliability of the wireless connection thanks to selective use of multiple path propagation • Suitable for use in hazardous areas (Zone 2); no special approvals necessary 20 Industry-standard products for wireless communication Antennas with multiple connections (dual or MIMO antennas) Antennas with two connections combine two individual antennas, at 90° to each other, in a single antenna enclosure. With these antennas, two data streams can be transferred simultaneously thanks to the two different polarization levels. Depending on the alignment of the polarization levels, these antennas are referred to as dual-slant (rotated through +/-45°) or vertical-horizontal. Antennas with three connections contain three individual emitters that can be combined in a single enclosure, either on different polarization levels (0°, +/-45°) or at a suitable distance from each other. The so-called MIMO antennas can transmit three data streams simultaneously using multiple path propagation. Transmission of several data streams results in increased data throughput with simultaneously achieving more reliable data transfer. © Siemens AG 2012 Antennas exclusively for SCALANCE W-700 according to IEEE 802.11n with 1 connection Antennas for SCALANCE W-700 according to IEEE 802.11n and 802.11a/b/g Antennas exclusively for SCALANCE W-700 according to IEEE 802.11a/b/g with 1 connection with 1 connection with 2 connections (dual) with 3 connections (MIMO) ANT795-4MA ANT793-6DG ANT795-6MT ANT792-4DN ANT795-4MR ANT795-4MC ANT793-8DJ ANT793-6DT ANT793-4MN ANT795-4MS ANT795-4MD ANT793-8DK ANT792-6MN ANT795-6DN ANT793-6MN ANT793-8DN ANT795-6DC ANT792-8DN ANT795-6MN RCoax radiating cables Overview of WLAN antennas Industry-standard products for wireless communication 21 © Siemens AG 2012 Industry-standard products for wireless communication IWLAN RCoax Cable When operated as an antenna for SCALANCE W access points, IWLAN RCoax radiating cables offer a reliable radio connection in areas where standard antenna technology can only be installed at great cost.
