Product Description



Industrial WiFi Access Point

WiFi access point, client, repeater & Mesh point designed for industrial applications in harsh environments


As its predecessor (WLg-ABOARD) with which it is compatible, RuggedAir100 is an 'all-in-one' multifunction product (access point, client, repeater, router & Mesh point) designed for industrial applications in harsh environment (IP66 waterproof, shocks and vibrations proof, extended temperature range, M12 connectors). It can be used either on the ground to create indoor or outdoor WiFi coverages, or on board to connect all types of mobile equipment or vehicles (trams, construction/agricultural machines, trucks, automated cranes, harbor cranes) to the ground network.

  • All-in-one: AP/client/repeater/Mesh point
  • WiFi 802.11n (MIMO 2T2R), 2.4/5 GHz
  • Advanced security functions, VPN, firewall
  • WaveManager centralized management software
  • Operating System: WaveOS
  • Rugged device: shocks & vibrations proof, IP66, dual insulated redundant input +9VDC to +48VDC or PoE
  • Fast roaming < 30 ms
  • Compatible with its predecessor WLg-ABOARD




The RuggedAir100 is equipped with a redundant wide range (9-48 VDC) or POE power supply as well as 2 antennas making it possible to reinforce the quality of the radio link and to increase the throughput.


The RuggedAir100's roaming performances (<30 ms) and its shocks/vibrations resistance make it easy to integrate in any type of mobile equipment or vehicle.

Ease of Deployment

The RuggedAir100 can be easily managed from the network with the centralized management software WaveManager, through SNMP or from a simple web browser. It also has a C-Key (key saving configuration) for instant replacement on site.


The RuggedAir100 integrates advanced security standards (Firewall, VPN, 802.1X) as well as routing and filtering functions to facilitate mass deployments.
