The advances being made in the digitalization of industry would be inconceivable without state-of-the-art communications technology. To provide businesses with the best possible infrastructure for exchanging data of all kinds, Siemens has developed dedicated Industrial Wireless LAN (IWLAN) products with special additional functions to meet the specific demands of WLAN in industry. These are particularly useful for applications in automation, for example in automotive manufacturing, transportation and logistics, and the oil and gas industry.
Siemens has developed special iFeatures for use in industrial environments which are enabled by KEY-PLUGs or CLPs inserted into the devices. These smart additional functions can be easily activated as software – also subsequently – on various IWLAN Access Points and Client Modules. These additional functions are suitable for all industries and all kinds of application. The following typical examples of application offer more detailed information.
No matter which industry or which application you need, our wireless communication components cover a wide range of applications for both indoor and outdoor use. They are uniquely suited to industrial applications, even under the harshest conditions. The open Industrial Ethernet standard PROFINET or Ethernet/IP as well as PROFIsafe via WLAN also ensure increased efficiency, flexibility and safety.
Reliable wireless communication connections without interruptions are possible due to three integrated diagnostics tools: Spectrum Analyzer, Signal Recorder and Remote Capture.
