The AW900FS is a secure industrial wireless Ethernet radio uses the latest in FHSS (Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum) technology to deliver long range, high speed wireless networking with government validated data security. We have incorporated a hardware encryption module within our wireless radios that has been validated to FIPS 140-2 Level 2 to allow you to create a FIPS-validated secure private network.
The AW900FS radios include a built-in web browser interface for remote configuration, status monitoring and firmware update. An operator at the main HMI (Human to Machine Interface) console can log in to each radio’s fixed IP address to facilitate troubleshooting. There is a small LCD panel on the front of the unit can also verify proper operation at a glance. Encryption keys and passwords are entered through a separate USB interface port that requires physical access to the radio. The security information cannot be accessed through the normal wired or wireless data path.
This radio operates in the unlicensed 900 MHz ISM band. Data is communicated robustly and error free despite interference from noise or other signal sources. Both point-to-point bridge and point-to-multipoint star network connections are supported. It is able to transmit legally up to one watt of RF power, line of sight distances up to 60 miles can be bridged using directional antennas. 900 MHz operation also allows the radio signals to penetrate through walls and foliage.
