Prosoft Fast Wireless Industrial Hotspot

ProSoft Technology 802.11abgn Fast Industrial Hotspot (RLX2-IHNF)

ProSoft Technology 802.11abgn Fast Wireless Industrial Hotspot (RLX2-IHNF)

HESCO has the ProSoft Technology 802.11abgn Fast Wireless Industrial Hotspot (RLX2-IHNF) that provides secure and reliable wireless solutions for plant-floor, SCADA automation, process control systems and mobile worker Wi-Fi infrastructure. It operates in the 2.4 or 5 GHz bands, including DFS channels. The Hotspot supports Access Point, Repeater, Bridging and Client modes. 802.11n technology delivers fast data rates up to 300 Mbps. This provides excellent packet-per-second performance and robust communications in rugged industrial environments.

ProSoft Technology’s Fast Wireless Industrial Hotspot

Prosoft’s unique Fast Roam bridging feature seamlessly supports wireless communications to moving machines and platforms by providing access point switchover times less than 50 ms. The RLX2-IHNF family adds RADIUS security for centralized management of security policies, VLAN support for network traffic segmentation and data prioritization, QoS support for data, video, and voice prioritization, and AeroScout location tracking support.
