Wi-Fi 6 for industry: Siemens expands its network portfolio

Access Points and the first industrial Wi-Fi 6 Client Module available on the market.
Reliable and high-performance wireless connectivity with maximum data transmission rates.
Devices available with high protection class and industry-specific approvals.

With a view to the increasing demands posed by digitalization, Siemens is expanding its offerings for network components for industrial WLAN solutions: The new Scalance WUM766-1 Client Module is the first industrial client module on the market that satisfies the latest Wireless LAN Standard IEEE 802.11ax (“Wi-Fi 6”), enabling reliable and high-performance wireless connectivity. By combining the Client Module with the new Scalance WAM766-1 Access Points, users can now implement demanding Industry 4.0 applications such as augmented reality or remote-controlled cranes. At gross data transmission rates of 1201 Mbit/s, the Access Points can link a large number of mobile devices in confined spaces, for example shuttle systems in intra-logistics.     The network components can also be used outside of control cabinets, in rail applications and in hazardous areas, thanks to their industry-specific approvals and their compact and robust design with IP65 degree of protection. Specific mobile devices in networks can also be deactivated using a sleep mode function combined with a digital input/output interface. This helps save energy and extend the service life and maintenance cycles of battery-powered mobile devices connected via WLAN. This enables energy-efficient operation of automated guided vehicles (AGV fleets), for example. The new components will also be equipped with an additional
