Ibex-RT-280 is a wireless LAN infrastructure access point for industrial or wayside network infrastructure. With its dual fibre Ethernet ports, it can be directly installed as part of a FRNT ring or used in a daisy chained setup.
Ibex-RT-280 is designed to withstand the tough environment in, for instance, wayside applications, exposing the access point to constant vibration, extreme temperatures, humidity and a demanding electromagnetic environment.
A GORE-TEX® membrane prevents internal condensation and high-level isolation protects against overvoltage and spikes/surges. Ibex-RT-280 comes with built-in 100-240 VAC mains power supply and IP66 environmental protection for water and dust, further simplifying installation and reducing external component needs. N-type radio connectors allow direct connectivity of thick low-loss feeder type RF cables.
The device comes with a high power radio interface calibrated to ensure high output power and excellent receiver sensitivity. It maintains high-speed data rates and reliable connection to industrial wireless clients even if the communication distance is increased.
Ibex-RT-280 provides an additional monitoring interface for out-of-band radar detection and monitoring, allowing surrounding WLAN devices and other interferences along the whole frequency band can be monitored, without adversely affecting the communication performance. Due to this, the device provides uninterrupted operation also on 5 GHz outdoor bands with radar detection (DFS) requirements.
An overall optimised design results in a compact form factor in combination with very high MTBF for easy integration and low lifecycle cost. Thorough type testing at independent labs certifies the compliance to a wide range of standards, including FCC. Meeting the requirements of the railway and signalling market, Ibex-RT-280 is very well suited for deployment in any other application with severe operating conditions and tough environments, for instance in the mining and shipping industry.
