RuggedWireless RS910W



The RuggedWireless™ RS910W is an industrially hardened Wireless Serial/Ethernet Device Server that has been specifically designed to operate reliably in electrically harsh and climatically demanding environments. The RS910W features a wireless LAN (WLAN) interface combined with 2 serial ports and/or 2 Fast Ethernet ports. The RS910W allows you to connect any RS-232/ 422/485 serial devices at up to 230 kbps and/or connect Ethernet devices for wireless access and control via an IEEE 802.11i wireless LAN. The RS910W eliminates costly wiring and simplifies network installation.

The RS910W functions as a wireless "client/bridge" within an IEEE 802.11b/g compliant WLAN. This allows the RS910W to transfer data for connected serial port and Ethernet devices via an installed Wireless Access Point. The RS910W is capable of wireless data rates of up to 54Mbps whose bandwidth is available for the combined device traffic volume emanating from two serial ports and two Ethernet ports.

Static authentication support is provided by WPA-PSK. For authentication by an access point and a RADIUS server, the RS910W supports IEEE 802.1X/RADIUS for wireless user traffic and distributing dynamic encryption keys. All wireless communications are protected by "hardware accelerated encryption" to ensure high performance when using strong encryption and authentication protocols such as WPA/TKIP and WPA2/802.11i. The web management interface is protected using SSL.

The RS910W has an operating temperature range of -40 to +85°C without the use of internal cooling fans allowing it to be placed in almost any location. The RS910W also has an integrated power supply with a wide range of voltages for worldwide operability, and is compliant with EMI and environmental standards for utility substations, industrial manufacturing, process control and intelligent transportation systems applications.

The RS910W is backed by a five year warranty and unsurpassed technical support.
