Wide application
AW5601 is a rugged, industrial-grade wireless access point suited for harsh conditions. Utilizing the 5GHz frequency band, AW5601 causes minimal interference with existing wireless devices, allowing easy upscaling of systems. Besides basic AP/Client modes, an additional WDS Bridge mode allows distribution from a WDS Root to multiple WDS Hybrids and wireless devices. WDS Root and Hybrids have the same wireless MAC address, SSID, and wireless channel settings, forming a larger, more flexible wireless network than simple APs.

High efficiency
Developed specifically with industrial automation in mind, the AW5601 features Flash Roaming and PROFINET transparency, empowering AGV/AMR applications with less latency, simpler topologies, and higher efficiency, which can be further enhanced with PoE PD support.

Simply secure
Security is also vital in AW5601’s design. State-of-the-art encryption complements the ability to create a virtual network among wireless clients, enabling easy and intuitive communication control between clients while imposing restrictions on data and excluding malware. And finally, AW5601 embodies a robust wireless network manager to help your network deliver optimal performance.

Industrial Communication Mode
Application on AGV with Flash Roaming and PROFINET Transparency

AGVs and other mobile systems can move beyond the range of a single AP. Yet, for processes that operate in transit, the latency due to network handover can be crucial. AW5601 offers Flash Roaming that achieves handover with less than 30ms signal switching latency, causing minimal impact on operation.

An AGV is a small system incorporating several controlled devices and a CPU or PLC for management. Considering the number of total devices in a site, AGV networks are usually set as small LANs, with end-device traffic undergoing network address translation (NAT/NAPT) to conserve the number of globally valid IPs.

Many PLCs, however, work with PROFINET packets under a NAT/NAPT environment, which will be lost through address translation. Therefore, AW5601 supports a PROFINET Transparent mode to allow explicitly permitted PROFINET communications to pass through under a NAT/NAPT environment, achieving both efficiency and effectivity in AGV systems.
