WLAN is synonymous with mobile communication. Use Factoryline WLAN networks for the inexpensive, quick, and easy installation of your wireless Ethernet infrastructure.

  • Fast and reliable data exchange with automatic logistics systems, such as electric overhead conveyor systems or high-rack transport vehicles
  • High-performance communication with stacker terminals and vehicles in large halls or open spaces
  • Increased productivity, thanks to realtime access to maintenance information and network resources from any location
  • Versatile communication infrastructure, can be used in parallel for data, video, and voice transmission

Networks covering several kilometres

Combine our WLAN devices with the extensive range of industrial antennas and accessories. This enables the implementation of stable and high-performance data links over distances of up to several kilometers. There are a wide range of possible applications:

  • Connection of automation components and sensors in remote plants via Ethernet
  • Supplying buildings that are difficult to access or temporary buildings with an Ethernet connection
  • Increasing the fault tolerance of cable-based networks, thanks to redundant wireless paths

High security standards reliably protect all your WLAN Ethernet networks against unauthorised access.
