Wireless Bridge ideal for communication hazardous areas and hard-to-reach locations

Anybus® Wireless Bridge enables you to create an industrial wireless connection between two points in an industrial Ethernet network. This second generation of the proven and trusted Wireless Bridge can communicate via both Bluetooth and WLAN and is ideal for communication through hazardous areas or hard-to-reach locations where cables are not desirable. It provides an effective wireless range of up to 400 meters.

Bridging TCP/IP Ethernet

The Wireless Bridge makes it possible to operate leading TCP/IP based industrial Ethernet networks, such as BACnet/IP, PROFINET, EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP, over Bluetooth an WLAN 2.4 / 5 GHz.

Point to Point or Multipoint

Point-to-point or multipoint Anybus Wireless Bridge is often used as an Ethernet cable replacement (point-to-point communication). But it can also be used as an access point for up to seven WLAN/Bluetooth clients.
