The connectBlue Wireless LAN Rugged Ethernet Port Adapter RWE251s is well-suited for industrial and medical applications where the Ethernet cable needs to be replaced with a robust wireless connection, or when you need to connect to a WLAN infrastructure. The device supports dual-band 802.11abgn which makes it easier to identify interference free channels and connect to networks that utilize both the WLAN 2.4 and the 5GHz radio bands. The external antenna lets you freely select where to position the RWE251s, for example inside a metal cabinet. Also, since the antenna is omnidirectional you do not need to align the units for optimal wireless connectivity. The Wireless Ethernet Port Adapter is part of the connectBlue product range of Wireless Products in industrial housings and versions with internal antenna or Bluetooth technology also exists.
