These 802.11n Hotspots use multiple-input/multiple-output (MIMO) technology supporting up to 3 antennas. This allows fast data rates up to 300Mbps with EtherNet/IP Requested Packet Interval (RPI) times as low as 2 ms.
More than just a new 802.11 technology, the RLXIB-IHN family adds RADIUS security for centralized management of security policies, VLANs for network traffic segmentation, and data prioritization while continuing to include the industrial wireless features that have made previous Industrial Hotspots successful.
