The NetWave industrially hardened wireless Ethernet transmission link can be configured through the embedded User Interface as a Client or as an Access Point. This point-to-multipoint model allows multiple Ethernet endpoints to be connected to a central Access Point. Up to 15 endpoints can be linked to a central access point. The NW1/M and NW1E/M support up to 95 Mbps throughput using MIMO technology. The units can be powered by an IEEE 802.3af PoE compliant device or through the supplied power injection module. The NW1/M is FCC certified for use in North America and the NW1E/M is ETSI, DFS and TPC certified for use in the European Union. The NW1[E]/M is an ultra-small form factor addition to the ComNet NetWave product family.
