CrispTech  provide sales and distribution services for a range of industrial wireless devices, sensors, control networks and automation systems. The AWK-3121 industrial wireless access point/bridge/client, supplied by CrispTech, is a 3-in-1 standard IEEE 802.11a/b/g compliant wireless device. It is designed to be used with Ethernet-ready devices to provide ready access to a wireless LAN. Advanced features include support for 802.11a in the 5 Ghz band, enhanced WPA2 security capability, operating temperature range from -40 to 75°C.

In terms of reliability, the AWK-3121 is equipped with 2 digital inputs and 1 relay output for on-site monitoring and warnings. In addition, the AWK-3121 offers dual redundant 12 to 48 VDC power inputs and Power-over-Ethernet. The AWK-3121 series provides a convenient and reliable solution for your industrial wireless applications, and is rugged enough for any harsh industrial environment.

Rugged industrial-grade design

The AWK-3121 standard models support an operating temperature of 0 to 60°C, and the extended models support an operating temperature of -40 to 75°C. Other industrial-grade features include DIN rail or wall mounting, a fan-less design, redundant power inputs, and power over Ethernet (PoE). In addition, the IP30-rated metal housing is rugged enough for any industrial application.

Easy web-based management

Industrial applications that require mobility, such as automated guided vehicles, require real-time control over wireless networks. The AWK-3121 has a built-in relay output and LED indicator functions. The LED indicators show the strength of the wireless signal, making on-site diagnosis easy and clear, and the relay output can be used to inform you of the status on-site. In addition to easy-to-use web-based management, RS-232 console management provides greater flexibility for on-site and IP-free management. These features give maintenance engineers a valuable tool for reacting promptly to emergency situations and can be integrated in your infrastructure design.

Advanced wireless security

Operating an unsecured WLAN network creates an opportunity for outsiders to access shared files. For this reason, security is a critical matter for WLAN installations. The AWK-3121 can operate as an access point, bridge, or client, and provides security features that include authentication and data encryption through SSID hiding, and IP packet filters. The AWK-3121 provides stronger authentication and encryption technologies suitable for industries that require highly secure wireless networks.
