M2M Connectivity has launched two new WLAN modules from connectBlue, the OWLAN221a and OWLAN222a. These modules are based on the latest IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n standards, operating on both the 2.4 GHz and the 5 GHz WLAN bands.
<p>M2M Connectivity Pty. Ltd., Australian and New Zealand distributor of connectBlue products, today announced the launch of the new Wireless LAN Dual-band Modules. The OWLAN221a and OWLAN222a modules expand the connectBlue Wireless LAN range. Based on the latest IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n standards, the dual-band modules operate on both the 2.4 GHz and the 5 GHz bands facilitating coexistence between wireless technologies.</p>
<p>The OWLAN221a and OWLAN222a modules are designed for use in tough applications and offer several unique features such as the ability to function faultlessly in industrial temperature ranges of -30 up to +85C. The modules also support 802.11n single stream which enables signal speeds of up to 65 Mbps and there is a choice of either an integrated antenna or dual external antennas. The modules can also operate in either infrastructure mode, ad-hoc mode or in mesh networking (802.11s).</p>
<p>Compatible with the existing connectBlue 802.11b/g as well Bluetooth and IEEE 802.15.4/ZigBee modules, the OWLAN221a and OWLAN222a modules also feature extremely low power consumption and full radio approvals with CE and FCC certificates.</p>
