Industrial wireless communication – a key element in the digital transformation
Implement wireless networking of machines easily and economically – with SCALANCE W760 Access Points and SCALANCE W720 Client Modules! Due to their practical SIMATIC design, minimum space is required in the control cabinet when integrating automation components such as a SIMATIC ET 200SP seamlessly into an industrial WLAN, in accordance with the IEEE 802.11n standard and with data rates of up to 150 Mbps.
Transfer data wirelessly from the control cabinet, or you can even use our devices with IP65 protection class outside the control cabinet. The SCALANCE W770 Access Points and SCALANCE W730 Client Modules in SIMATIC design reliably and flexibly implement wireless communication between the controller and an I/O system like the SIMATIC ET 200MP.
Using wireless communication where high-end, powerful and reliable data transmission is required: The SCALANCE W780 Access Points and SCALANCE W740 Client Modules support data rates of up to 450 Mbps in accordance with standard IEEE 802.11n. Devices with IP30 protection class are suitable for use in the control cabinet, whereas IP65 devices are perfect for use outside the control cabinet and outdoors under harsh environmental conditions. In combination with the iFeatures functionalities, a whole host of additional applications is enabled, such as real-time or redundant communication.
With the latest WLAN standard IEEE 802.11ac Wave 2, SCALANCE W1780 Access Points and SCALANCE W1740 Client Modules enable applications to be implemented in harsh industrial environments that need particularly large bandwidths, e.g. for high-performance video transmission.
The SCALANCE W1750D controller-based Direct Access Points support radio transmission according to the latest WLAN standard IEEE 802.11ac Wave 2. This new technology offers very high data transmission rates as required. For example, for video streaming. The high-performance SCALANCE W1750D, which are available in different country-specific versions, manage wireless networks with up to 128 Access Points. Typical areas of application include moderate ambient conditions such as those in assembly halls and adjoining offices or open warehouses. Due to their attractive design, the Direct Access Points can also be installed in cafeterias and conference rooms.
A broad antenna portfolio rounds off the comprehensive IWLAN solutions from Siemens. These include omnidirectional antennas for a large area radio field in all directions, directional antennas for a wireless field aligned in a specified direction, and sector or wide angle antennas for a large radio field. In addition to many types of antenna, we also offer cabling technology as well as mounting accessories such as cables, lightning conductors and plug-in connectors.
As a special antenna solution for SCALANCE W components, the RCoax radiating cables ensure reliable wireless connections along defined radio links. The coaxial cable, with its special radiating characteristics, is rugged and easy to install, and is suitable for use in areas susceptible to explosions (Zone 2), without special approvals. It is connected to SCALANCE W Access Points as an external antenna.
