Belden’s new OpenBAT range from Hirschmannâ„¢ is the first modular system to enable industry-standard WLAN access points and clients to be configured via the internet. This range, comprising the BAT-R (IP20) and BAT-F (IP67) series, supports the IEEE 802.11n transmission standard, which facilitates data speeds of up to 450Mbps in both the 5GHz and the 2.4GHz bands. Both series are based on entirely new hardware and also have a powerful HiLCOS operating system with extensive management, security and quality of service functions plus layer 3 IP routing. La generation ulterieure a ete celle des machines a sous electro-mecaniques, combinant les moteurs electriques et les roues mecaniques.. The number of wireless modules and Ethernet LAN ports can be configured individually, as can the power delivery concept. This also applies to the over a dozen certificates that qualify these access points and clients for use in, for example, the power supply industry, the gas and oil sector or rail transportation. They can be used to set up fast and stable infrastructure and meshed networks plus wireless distribution systems (WDS) or point-to-point connections. Several thousand different designs can be configured using these OpenBAT devices. The range, expected to be launched in Spring 2012, thus allows tailored solutions with an optimal price-performance ratio.

The core component of this new hardware is a patented wireless module specifically designed for applications in industrial environments, with integrated ESD protection and bandpass filters. MIMO technology (Multiple Input Multiple Output) ensures a stable wireless connection even in the presence of reflections or other forms of interference. Fast roaming guarantees uninterrupted connections when transferring from one radio cell to another.

The CPU platform facilitates a LAN connection via Gigabit Ethernet. The access points und clients also possess potential-free contacts as well as one V.24 and one USB interface that can be used for analog or DSL modem connections for WAN routing or remote maintenance. All combinations operate at temperatures in the range -40°C to +70°C and also fulfil stringent demands as regards shock and vibration resistance.

The access points and clients can be equipped with one or two wireless modules as desired. The LAN connections can also be configured with one or two ports and these can be used for twisted pair cables or SFP transceivers. A choice of redundant power packs for 24/48 VDC, 60/120/250 VDC or 110/230 VAC is available.

The HiLCOS operating system can be used to manage all members of the OpenBAT range via web interface, Telnet, TFTP, FTP or SNMP V2. High network availability is provided by the rapid spanning tree protocol. Among other features, the quality-of-service functions specified by IEEE 802.11e allow the prioritization of voice or video streams. An integrated IP router can be used to construct up to eight sub-networks.

The access points and clients support all encryption and authentication methods compliant with IEEE 802.11i and 802.1x/EAP as well as WEP, WPA, WPA2, TKIP, AES and LEPS, and there are also WLAN port and protocol filters, a radius server, and a firewall equipped with intrusion detection. Rogue AP detection is also available via background scanning and WLAN monitor.

The devices in the BAT-R series have robust metal housings and are designed to be mounted on DIN rails. The units in the BAT-F range were developed for field applications. They too have robust metal housings that are additionally salt spray resistant. Thanks to their Nema and UL certification and robust M12 connectors they can be installed on walls or poles both indoors and out.

The new OpenBAT range from its Hirschmannâ„¢ product range makes Belden the first manufacturer to offer industrial standard WLAN access points and clients that can be configured via the internet. “This concept gives users maximum flexibility,” says Product Manager Olaf Schilperoort, “because they can configure the optimal equipment version for the requirements of their application, hence they only pay for the features they really need.”

Gigabit Ethernet via M12 Ports

The new Gigabit OCTOPUS from Belden’s Hirschmannâ„¢ product range is a managed IP54 switch that was especially developed for road and rail vehicle applications that require fast data connection. To this end the switch has two Gigabit Ethernet uplinks for twisted-pair cables (1000 BASE-TX) connected via vibration-proof M12 ports. Eight Fast Ethernet ports (10/100 BASE-TX) are provided for connecting terminal equipment. These are also designed for M12 connectors and support PoE. They make it possible to power equipment such as IP cameras, Voice-over-IP phones or WLAN Access Points without the need for additional cables. The switch also offers various management and security functions plus fast redundancy protocols. It can thus be used to install high-availability Gigabit backbones in public transport vehicles, for instance giving passengers fast internet access during their journey.

This switch, which has an operating range of -40°C to +70°C, fulfils the EMC and fire prevention requirements of the European standards that govern use in rail vehicles. The fanless design and redundant 48V power supply also guarantee high operational safety.

The PoE facility makes use of the phantom power method in which the terminal equipment is powered via the same wire pair that carries the data, making it possible to use thinner cables and less complicated connectors. The power available to each terminal is 15W.

The switch, which comes in a robust and compact die-cast zinc housing (338 mm x 189 mm x 70 mm) designed for wall mounting, can be quickly taken into operation via plug and play. It can be configured using a command line interface (CLI), Telnet, BootP, DHCP option 82 or HiDiscovery, or via the ACA11-M12 auto configuration adapter. RMON, SysLog support and port mirroring are provided for diagnostic purposes. Alarms are output via an additional signalling contact and LEDs on the front of the housing display the unit’s status plus that of the network and the power supply.

Redundancy protocols such as HIPER Ring and rapid spanning tree ensure high network availability. The supported security mechanisms include IP and MAC port security, SNMP V3, SSH V3, SNMP access settings (VLAN/IP) and access control via IEEE 802.1x. More detailed information can be displayed via a standard web browser. The integrated SNMP interface offers additional centralized management functionality that makes it possible to use network management software such as Industrial HiVision from Hirschmannâ„¢.

This new Gigabit OCTOPUS is an innovative addition to the IP57 switches in Belden’s Hirschmannâ„¢ product series. “Gigabit ports with vibration-proof M12 connection technology are quite new,” says Product Manager Rolf-Dieter Sommer. “They enable high data rates to be reliably conveyed via twisted pair cables, making it possible to handle the steadily increasing network load in public transport vehicles with IP communications.”
