WLAN 1010 and WLAN 2010 Compact wireless module for external antennas
The WLAN 1010 and WLAN 2010 wireless modules are particularly compact. With their external antenna connections, they are perfectly suited for complex wireless tasks where it is necessary for the antenna positioning to be flexible. Moreover, they also feature the proven high reliability of the 1000 and 2000 series. They also feature robust, industrial housings, reliable MIMO wireless technology, and comprehensive software functions that can be configured over a wide range of interfaces such as web, SNMP, REST API, and CLI.
WLAN 1010 – fits into compact machines
Vehicles, warehouse shuttles, and machines should be small. Many designs face the same issue: Lack of space. All of the components therefore must be compact and flexible in mounting. The WLAN 1010 series was developed to address exactly this. The compact WLAN module can be mounted on walls and panels, or latched easily onto a DIN rail. The metal base plate ensures a secure attachment and reliable heat dissipation.
Your advantage: The device can be mounted anywhere.
Connection for external antennas
The right antenna solution is key for a reliable wireless connection. To ensure good wireless coverage around a vehicle, you sometimes have to mount antennas on different sides of the vehicle. The FL WLAN 1010 is equipped with two antenna connections precisely for these cases. You therefore always have the optimum antenna solution.
Your advantage: The best reception, even when space is tight.
High security with two virtual access points and IP filters
Protecting your network and your data against misuse and manipulation is important to us. The WLAN 1010 supports the latest WLAN security standards, such as WPA-AES encryption and RADIUS authentication. Furthermore, different WLAN access points can be set up for two different user groups, e.g., service staff and operators, each with their own password and access filters. Thus, for example, service staff have unlimited WLAN access to all devices in the network, while operators can only access the visualization server.
Your advantage: Security against manipulation and misuse.
Easy to control via the PLC – via REST API
The WLAN 1010 can be configured easily and controlled for runtime via a REST API using a PC or PLC. Several WLAN 1010 modules can therefore be configured quickly and easily with one command. Furthermore, network administration tasks can be automated via the controller, such as in order to assign a new single-use WLAN password to WLAN users for each connection. This is a simple solution to the security risk arising through use of shared, static WLAN passwords.
Your advantage: Full control for machine programming.
WLAN Mesh for automation networks
With the new WLAN Mesh operating mode of the FL WLAN 2010 wireless modules, WLAN networks are easy to establish and ranges in existing WLAN networks can be increased. By using numerous mesh access points, you can cover larger areas without having to lay cables. The WLAN Mesh function is also available on older WLAN 2010 modules by updating the firmware.
Your advantage: Create autonomous, self-organizing ad hoc networks.
