March 10, 2009--Advantech's EKI-6311G 802.11 b/g Wireless Access Point, Client Bridge and Repeater offers standards-based and license-free wireless connectivity for industrial devices, equipment, and applications.

The EKI-6311G supports multiple operating modes. As an Access Point, it allows wireless devices to communicate with each other and with 10/100Base-TX Ethernet wired networks. For applications where a wireless extension cord is needed, Client Bridge operation connects one or more wired devices to a wireless network. While combining both of these modes, the unit operates as a wireless repeater to extend wireless coverage areas.

The IP65-rated EKI-6311G can be used for applications ranging from indoor plant/factory locations to outdoor use. A single conduit connection is required for both external power and wired network connections. The unit supports enterprise standards like WPA2 (WiFi Protected Access 2) and 802.1x remote authentication for secure wireless communications and to ensure that only authorized users and devices are permitted access, and is also SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) manageable.
