AWK-3131A Series

Industrial IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n wireless AP/bridge/client

Features and Benefits

  • IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n AP/bridge/client support
  • Easy setup and deployment with AeroMag
  • Millisecond-level Client-based Turbo Roaming
  • Complete redundancy with AeroLink Protection
  • Easy network setup with Network Address Translation (NAT)
  • Integrated antenna and power isolation
  • -40 to 75°C wide operating temperature range (-T models)
  • 5 GHz DFS channel support




The AWK-3131A 3-in-1 industrial wireless AP/bridge/client meets the growing need for faster data transmission speeds by supporting IEEE 802.11n technology with a net data rate of up to 300 Mbps. The AWK-3131A is compliant with industrial standards and approvals covering operating temperature, power input voltage, surge, ESD, and vibration. The two redundant DC power inputs increase the reliability of the power supply, and the AWK-3131A can be powered via PoE to make deployment easier. The AWK-3131A can operate on either the 2.4 or 5 GHz bands and is backwards-compatible with existing 802.11a/b/g deployments to future-proof your wireless investments. The Wireless add-on for the MXview network management utility visualizes the AWK’s invisible wireless connections to ensure wall-to-wall Wi-Fi connectivity.
