FL WLAN 1101 Wireless Module Saves Space

June 21, 2017
Phoenix Contact combines access point and antenna technologies to save space.

The FL WLAN 1101 is a wireless module that combines access point and antenna technologies in a single housing. The antenna is mounted directly to the machine, mobile vehicle, or control cabinet to save space.


Reliable coverage is provided due to two internal high-performance antennas with multiple-input, multiple-output (MMIO) technology. This coverage removes the need for expensive WLAN planning or installation of antenna technology.


Simple to retrofit, it's mounted using a single-hole assembly connected to the system via standard power and RJ45 Ethernet connectors.
