Richmond, IN (PressExposure) October 05, 2009 -- Richmond, IN, -- Belden (NYSE: BDC), a world leader in the development of signal transmission products for the industrial, enterprise, broadcast, building management and security markets, introduces Hirschmann industrial-grade Wireless LAN Access Points featuring IEEE 802.11n (draft 2.0) wireless interfaces.
The new 802.11n wireless standard permits transfer rates similar to those achieved by a Fast Ethernet cable. Innovative MIMO (multiple input, multiple output) send and receive technology for wireless transmissions provides significantly longer reach, reliability and stability -- in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency ranges. Moreover, MIMO is particularly suitable for applications where typical industrial interferences must be expected, such as reflections.
WLAN devices equipped with wireless interfaces in accordance with the older IEEE 802.11a/b/g/h standards can also benefit from the greater reach of the new access points.
Hirschmann IWLAN Access Points are available in two models: BAT300-Rail, designed for installation on standard DIN rails in control cabinets, and BAT300-F with IP67 housings for direct field installation.
