When used in the Access Point (AP) mode, it allows wireless devices to connect through it and onto the wired Ethernet network, either in AD-HOC or Infrastructure modes.
When used as a Bridge, it makes it possible to turn any 10/100 Ethernet device into a wireless device, or to connect two network segments together to make a single network (without the interconnecting wire or fibre optic).
Additionally the module may also be used in its Wireless Repeater (WDS) mode to extend the range covered by a wireless network.
Designed for hazardous-area mounting, the 9469-ETplus has intrinsically safe, Zone 1, ATEX and IECEx certification and Division 1 FM (USA and Canada) approvals, and may only require a suitably IP-rated enclosure, where necessary. The ATEX and IECEx approvals cover both surface industry and mining applications.Download a datasheet
