The Hirschmann™ BAT Family includes a broad portfolio of Access Points and Clients that work seamlessly together. For maximum mobility, flexibility and network availability in today’s industrial environments.
The access points and clients in the new OpenBAT family can be mounted on DIN rails (BAT-R) or installed on walls or masts in indoor and outdoor (BAT-F) areas. Available with or without conformal coating, the devices have an operating temperature range of 0°C to +60°C or -40°C to +70°C. All versions support the IEEE 802.11n transmission standard, with PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, Public Spot and VPN Gateway as options.
access point has one or two wireless modules and Gigabit Ethernet ports with tried and tested M12 connection technology (IP67 version), one of which is configurable as a combo port (fiber optic/twisted pair). A serial M12-RS232 interface and a USB port are also provided. For redundant power supply using potential-free relay contacts, a choice of freely combinable PoE power packs for IEEE 02.3af, 24/48 V DC, 60/120/250 V DC or 110/230 V AC is available.
Offering more than 20 industry and country specific certifications, the new family of OpenBAT access points is an ideal solution for WLAN applications. Featuring high-availability data communication and outstanding cost effectiveness, the OpenBAT access points are ideally suited for rail transport applications.
For example, employments for on-board communication as well as along the tracks and in stations; or in harbors, where they guarantee stable connections in environments with other high-power transmitters using different radio technologies. The same also applies to the electrical power industry, whether in power transmission and distribution or in electricity generation from renewable energy sources. Additional areas of employment include oil and gas applications, mechanical engineering, and in the radio broadcasting sector.
