Wi-Fi solutions for the automation industry 

Automation is now widespread in factories in the manufacturing industry and is increasingly being applied in life. With the characteristics of large factories, safety warning and management systems  integrated with production machines are always a top priority. Therefore, it requires the infrastructure connection system to be really stable, sustainable, and fast processing speed.

Point-to-Point/Multi-Point wireless network infrastructure solution provides flexibility in deployment and installation, easy to change quickly to meet the changing situation and development of the factory without limitations such as: using transmission cables, in addition, it completely eliminates risks such as cable breakage during the operation of the factory’s machinery.

01. Fast deployment with the furthest Point – Point / Multipoint data transmission application with a distance of 5 – 20 Km

Wireless transmission system can be applied to automation systems, machine control, production systems. WiCell devices have very high broadcast power from 1000 to 2000 mW. This is the world’s leading large capacity, when combined with high-profit antennas such as Grid or Dish antenna, it will provide a point-to-point wireless connection between two areas with a distance of up to 20 Km. When combined with high-gain antennas with wide coverage opening angles such as Sector, Panel, Horn, it allows Point –  Multipoint coverage to reach a radius of 5 Km.

02. Point-to-Point Connection

Used as a backbone backbone to replace optical fiber lines, it is difficult to deploy due to the terrain or the distance is too far to pull the cable. Point-to-Multipoint connection allows the application to transmit data over shorter distances, such as transmitting information from multiple processing stations to a nearby center. The installation does not take as much time and effort as pulling the cable, for a quick and short deployment time and still maximum efficiency.


03. Extremely fast data transfer rate, resistant to loss and interference  

The latest technology WiFi standard IEEE 802.11ac/n for bandwidth from 866 to 1200 Mbps makes data transmission and reception extremely fast, in addition to data transmission, it can also take advantage of video transmission, surveillance camera, voice. VoIP… on the same line.


04. Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) technology

Enhance the system’s stable data transmission because the streamed data does not overlap, minimizing loss and loss of packets. The device operates in the 4.9 – 5.8 GHz frequency range, so it has very good anti-interference ability in terms of transmission waves.

The replacement of wireless network infrastructure instead of network cable infrastructure in today’s automation systems is a trend that is suitable for the development of the scale of enterprises – factories. Flexibility in deployment and expansion, saving investment costs and effort in operation and management.
