NEXCOM Industrial Wi-Fi AP Provides Real-time Data Access Across Light Industrial Environments


Fremont, California (EastBayDaily) — NEXCOM releases the industrial Wi-Fi access point, the IWF 2220 to address the needs for real-time data access across light industrial environments. The dual band RF IWF 2220 offers two 300 Mbps connections with high transmission power to provide almost four times the network coverage. Paired with NEXCOM WLAN controller, the IWF 2220 further extends the coverage of industrial Wi-Fi networks, increasing moving ranges of connected clients. As a result, the IWF 2220 helps keep up-to-the-minute track of inventory, incoming quality control statuses, production orders across warehouses, quality inspection areas, production lines and more.

The IWF 2220 has two RF channels – each supporting 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz clients and running at the speed of 300 Mbps. It is equipped with four 20 dBm radios, which can transmit amplified signals nearly four times as far as commonly used SoC-based 15dBm radios.

The IWF 2220 supports Multiple In/Multiple Out (2×2 MIMO) function increasing data throughput. Featuring high network density, wide network coverage and large network capacity. It also helps establish a high-speed highly-reliable industrial Wi-Fi network, allowing more clients to reside on while sidestepping network congestion, signal attenuation and the resulting intermittent connection.

To further extend an industrial Wi-Fi network, the IWF 2220 paired with NEXCOM's industrial secure WLAN controller, the IWF 8405, connects multiple Wi-Fi subnets, keeping such as automated guided vehicles and production managers online when moving around warehouses and factories. Combining both the IWF 2220 and IWF 8405 also allows for differentiated Wi-Fi access based on 16 sets of ESSIDs and designated user policies to optimize Wi-Fi bandwidth allocation.

Designed for flexible installation, the IWF 2220 supports both PoE and 12VDC power inputs. The PoE can power the IWF 2220 in the absence of separate power source and simplify the wiring. Nevertheless the 12VDC has a cost advantage when power source is available.
