WLg-xroad-N  WLg-xROAD-N internal

WLg-xROAD/N is a rugged equipment designed for on-road applications, depots, warehouses, agriculture, manufacturing floors, docks, distribution centers, shipyards and lumberyards … it can be mounted on trucks, city buses, forklifts, trailers, tractors or cranes, for material handling, real-time information transmission, and inventory management.

It fulfils the most severe requirements in terms of operating environment: from -25°C to +70°C, shockproof and vibration proof, protection against dust and water projections (IP 65). The product is UTAC E2 certified (CE standard for electronic equipments installed aboard vehicle), and can thus be installed in full safety aboard of all on-road equipments.

The WLg-xROAD/N used in the ACCESS POINT mode makes it possible to create an industrial WiFi wireless network from any industrial equipment featuring an 10/100 Ethernet interface. Used in the BRIDGE mode, the WLg-xROAD/N enables to connect any industrial equipment featuring a 10/100 Ethernet interface to the WiFi wireless network.

WLg-xROAD/N module can also be used as a WiFi network repeater (WDS) in order to extend radio coverage, device supports both INFRASTRUCTURE and AD-HOC modes. The WLg-xROAD/N device is also designed to work as a wireless bridge between the wired MODBUS/TCP or PROFINET protocols and the radio network, this feature allows to connect any MODBUS/TCP or PROFINET equipments to this network.

Thanks to its built-in WEB interface, the setup of the device is achieved using the web browser installed on your computer (Internet Explorer, Netscape, Mozilla …). WLg-xROAD/N doesn’t require any additional software to be installed on your computer (no peripheral driver needed). Product can also be administrated by ACKSYS NDM (ACKSYS Networking Devices Manager), the software for centralized management of the ACKSYS networking devices. The radio link is made safe by using most modern methods of protection: WEP 64/128 bits, WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK and authentification IEEE 802.1x (RADIUS server). The nominal range (open space) of the module is 300 m for a transmit power of +20 dBm and -92 dBm in reception (a/g modes) and -95 dBm (IEEE 802.11b mode). It is powered from a DC power supply (+9VDC to +75VDC), power consumption is 3.6W typical, IEEE 802.3 af is also available for the WLg-xROAD/NP model.

  • Operating temperature: -25°C to +70°C (HR 0-99%), storage: -40°C to +80°C

The WLg-xROAD/N enables to connect two Ethernet networks or two Ethernet equipments in the AD-HOC mode (direct radio connection without infrastructure) or within a radio network controlled by an Access Point as well. The WLg-xROAD/N can also be configured to work as a WiFi access Point. WLg-xROAD/N also supports the MODBUS/TCP & PROFINET protocols, thus you can easily replace a network cable by the radio link to connect any industrial equipment which rely on these protocols.
