WLAN 5110 installed in a control cabinet

WLAN 5110 The flexible WLAN solution for control cabinets

WLAN 5110 is a powerful WLAN 802.11n Access Point and client which allows large-area WLAN networks or wireless Ethernet connections to be established over longer distances. With the integrated cluster management, all WLAN 5110 Access Points in a network can be configured and managed conveniently and quickly via a single web interface. The compact design means that it can not only be used in control cabinets, but also in compact control boxes in the field.

Icon for greater range

Increased range due to modern standards and MIMO technology

Powerful WLAN IEEE 802.11n module for more range

A powerful wireless signal and the MIMO (multiple input, multiple output) multi-antenna technology in accordance with the IEEE 802.11n standard are crucial for stable, high-speed, and reliable wireless communication over longer ranges. This particularly counts under challenging industrial conditions. Even when using WLAN clients with the old 802.11a/b/g standard, the stability and range of the wireless communication improves considerably in almost all cases.

Your advantage: Fewer access points per area.

Cluster management technology for central configuration

The cluster management function integrated into the WLAN 5110 allows all WLAN 5110 access points of a WLAN infrastructure network to be configured together centrally in a straightforward manner via just one web interface. Thus, all access points can be set up in just a few minutes, and integrated into existing networks.

Additional convenience during configuration and maintenance is provided by the mode button and the SD memory card on which configuration data and the firmware image and other things can be saved.

Your advantage: Quick and easy WLAN network configuration

WLAN security mechanisms of the WLAN 5110

Secure and compatible: WLAN 5110

Compatible, secure, and a wealth of possibilities

The WLAN 5110 supports the latest WLAN security mechanisms, including hardware-based AES encryption. All WLAN devices that support the 802.11a,b,g and 802.11n specifications are of course also compatible.

Furthermore, the WLAN 5110 provides additional functions and features that are only effective in combination with another WLAN 5110 or WLAN 1100. Among other things, these include the “Fully transparent bridge” mode for layer 2 transparent network communication via WLAN, an optimized multicast handling, e.g. for Ethernet/IP, and additional optimized, higher-speed roaming.

Your advantage: High security and compatibility which is also optimized for industrial applications

Antennas for WLAN products

Suitable antennas for our WLAN products

External antenna connections for the flexible use of antennas

Good signal reception is key for high-speed and reliable wireless communication. Therefore, installing high-quality antennas that are suitable for the respective application is essential. We provide the ideal antenna accessories for every application.

  • Omni-directional antennas for a large-area wireless field in all directions
  • Directional antennas for a unidirectional wireless field over long distances
  • Leakage cable antennas for track-led applications, e.g. electric monorail systems

Your advantage: Ideal signal reception at all times

RUGGED BOX mounting kit

RUGGED BOX mounting set for the WLAN 5110 access point

Compact design – even suitable for control boxes in the field

WLAN access points should be installed in the best antenna location. This is usually not near a control cabinet. The WLAN 5110 was therefore designed for installation in field-mountable control boxes, even when Ethernet and antenna cables are connected.

With the RUGGED BOX, we provide you with various, robust control box sets with IP66 type of protection, perfectly harmonized with the FL WLAN 5110. You can use antennas that can be directly screwed on or a power supply unit for 220 V operation. You will always get exactly the right Access Point for your requirements.

Your advantage: Flexible installation of the WLAN 5110 at the ideal position

WLAN 5110 supplied with data and energy due to the PoE splitter

Power over Ethernet (PoE) for easy field installation

Suitable for the WLAN 5110, we provide a Power over Ethernet splitter (PD) for separating power and data in accordance with IEEE 802.3af and IEEE 802.3at. This enables simple and cost-effective Ethernet and power supply cabling via just one Ethernet cable to a remotely installed WLAN access point. The PoE splitter supplies industry-standard 24 V DC and, depending on the type of the PoE supply connected (802.3af/802.3at), 10.5 W or 21.5 W. You will find suitable PoE power modules and PoE switches in our network portfolio.

Your advantage: Easy one-cable installation

Typical areas of application of WLAN 5110
