Moxa recently unveiled the complete WLAN solutions for Automated Materials Handling (AMH) systems, which ensure reliable wireless connectivity for moving equipments in warehouse automation.
The AWK-A series comes with Turbo Roaming technology allows fast roaming under milliseconds, Dual Isolation design protects both power and antenna ports from electrical interference, and industrial-grade design like anti-vibration and wide operating temperatures for harsh warehouse environments.
According to the AMH market report from MarketsandMarkets, 30% of operating cost reduction can be expected when factory owners adopted AMH systems.
Among all the AMH systems, the Automated Storage and Retrieve Systems (AS/RS) and Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) systems are expected to grow at the highest rate over 25% of CAGR.
However, manufactories can only take advantage on this rapid growth market when reliable wireless solutions are deployed on their AS/RS and AGV systems.
To ensure wireless network availability inside warehouses, the AWK-A series also supports IEEE 802.11n standard with MIMO technology to enlarge wireless coverage and ensure sufficient bandwidth up to 300 Mbps throughputs.
Rugged IP68-rated housing (AWK-4131A only) and -40 to 75°C operating temperature are also provided for sub-zero warehouse environments.
