New Access Points for future-proof industrial networks

Scalance W1788 uses MU-MIMO (Multiuser Multiple Input Multiple Output) technology to structure data flows and achieve higher data transmission rates. The Access Points can be used outside of the control cabinet. Their high IP65 protection class and the screw-fixed M12 and N-Connect enable them to withstand harsh industrial environments. To allow flexible and easyinstallation, the Scalance W1788 Access Points are available with internal or remote antennas, and come in anumber of product variants and designs to suit the relevant application. These include variants with one or two radios for optimum data utilization, or a special EEC variant for use in enhanced environmental conditions for applications such as railways. All Access Points are available in different country variants to facilitate their application around the world. Like all Scalance W components, the new Access Points also come with the familiar parameterization interfaces and a wide range of matching accessories and antennas for every application.
