Product Description



Industrial WiFi Access Point

Industrial dual WiFi access point (11n + 11ac), dual band (2.4 or 5 GHz)


Available in dual WiFi radio version (11n + 11ac), AirBox fits directly into the era of Industry 4.0 by offering dual band (2.4 / 5GHz) connectivity to objects (IIoT, PLCs, tablets) and strengthening the communication between machines (M2M). AirBox supports up to 80 clients connected simultaneously (@ 2Mbps) in AP mode and can be integrated in electrical cabinets as in tight spaces (antenna fitted externally).

  • WiFi access point, client or repeater modes
  • Mesh function to wirelessly interconnect access points
  • Optional 4G router + positioning (GNSS)
  • Advanced security (Firewall, VPN, radius)
  • High availability: 2 redundant Ethernet ports, redundant wide range power supply input (+9 to +48 VDC) & PoE 802.3af (from model V2)
  • Compact case, wall or DIN Rail mounting
  • Centralized administration and configurations management
  • 2 isolated inputs + 2 isolated outputs

The single radio model (WiFi 11n) can be used in client mode to remotely connect any Ethernet equipment or PLCs as well as mobile devices (trolleys, AGVs) to the factory wireless infrastructure. AirBox advantageously leverages MIMO technology to strengthen the radio link and features a high-performance roaming algorithm (< 30ms) to ensure seamless communication in motion, even in environments with very high density of AP.


Embedded Intelligence

AirBox embedded intelligence simplifies the network design and does not require any wireless LAN controller. Administration is centralized via ACKSYS WaveManager software. Network is secured thanks to AirBox high level of security (Firewall, VPN, 802.1X). Two pairs of digital I/O are controllable with the SNMP protocol to operate remote equipment or read the logic state of a signal.
