The AIR-485™ wireless modem has been designed and optimized to work with Cansec products and to also be suitable for other wireless RS-485 applications. This wireless modem conveniently and effectively eliminates RS-485 network cabling either as part of a larger network or for direct connection at the host computer.
Air-485™ does not require software or application for configuration, and it is very easy to install and use. All you need is a master modem connected at your host computer via a USB cable, and a slave modem connected at your Cansec RS-485 aware access controllers or readers. It supports point-to-point and multipoint configurations as well as multiple networks per site.
Communication between slave and master modem is 128-bit AES encrypted adding another layer of security protection.
One of the biggest challenges in setting up a wireless system is determining the optimum placement of the RF modems to obtain the right balance of range and signal strength. The Air-485™ RF modem contains three LEDs which provide a simple visual indication of signal strength. No meters or other equipment are required for the installation. Because the Air-485™ modems are totally separate from the wired or wireless LAN, there is no need to configure complex network parameters or involve IT departments.
Please note that a minimum of two modems will be required.
