Not just an enclosure, but a fully certified system including our innovative iSOLATE intellectual property; the iWAP107 enables cost effective wireless networking in hazardous areas.
Choose the latest 802.11AC access points from market leaders like Cisco, Aruba, Siemens and more – make the most of their MIMO functionality for high performance Wi-Fi, even in metallic process environments.
You can also choose from a range of other wireless technologies, such as UHF RFID readers, LTE routers, and IoT gateways including LoRa, WiHART, or ISA100.
Installation and maintenance are simpler and quicker too. You can use standard tools – the internal iSOLATE501 RF isolator and iSOLATE-CT Connector Transits mean there’s no need for barrier glands to install antennas – and what’s more, the antennas can be connected and disconnected live for minimal downtime.
The iWAP107 is designed to withstand the most hazardous of conditions and is extremely rugged, with IP66 ingress protection. However, we understand that just because equipment needs to be durable, doesn’t mean that it should take up too much space or be awkward to install. The iWAP107’s internal design packs lots of functionality into a compact space, giving outer dimensions of just 415 x 315 x 250mm. Weighing in at around 30kg for an aluminium option, the iWAP107 can be easily manoeuvred for installation across a range of locations.
The Extronics team is here to help you on every step of your wireless journey. We have sales engineers on hand to advise you before making a purchase, an experienced team to build your iWAP107 to your required specification, and a crew of after-sales technical support to answer any queries you might have.
The iWAP107 is covered by the standard Extronics warranty. We also offer an Extended Warranty option, for up to 5 years’ coverage of your iWAP107.
With intrinsically safe RF outputs and explosion proof N-type antenna connections thanks to Extronics’ iSOLATE technology, you can choose from a wide variety of standard simple apparatus antennas. Get better reliability, lower cost, and improved coverage without the need for certification, and still be fully compliant with all hazardous area equipment regulations.
Our iWAP107 access point enclosures have been deployed on site at Texmark Chemicals, Inc as part of a wireless infrastructure with Aruba access points and HPE Edgeline edge compute devices connected to I/O. We’re excited to hear that the technology is helping Texmark create the Refinery of the Future and streamline their processes.
