Wireless access point
The Advantech EKI-6331AN provides three times higher data rates than legacy 802.11a devices and 5 GHz wireless connectivity.
Advantech EKI-6331AN IEEE 802.11a/n IP55 industrial wireless Access Point/CPE provides three times higher data rates than legacy 802.11a devices and provides a reliable 5GHz wireless connectivity which is a wide, clean band of more non-overlapping channels than 2.4 GHz to avoid communication interference. With 2x2 MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) technology, the EKI-6331AN provides both larger data rates in transmission and greater reliability in received quality.
The PoE injector enhances flexibility in deployment of the AP/CPE even where the DC power supply is hard to fulfill and with the support of WMM and IGMP snooping protocols, the EKI-6331AN effectively improves the reliability of wireless connectivity. To secure wireless connections, the EKI-6331AN implements the latest encryption technologies including WPA2/WPA/802.1x for powerful security authentication.
The EKI-6331AN and Advantech’s EKI-6311GN, an IEEE 802.11 b/g/n wireless access point/client bridge, could seamlessly work together to provide excellent 11n performance for middle-range backhaul networks and expand wireless coverage. It’s ideal for industrial environments, such as oil field and pipeline monitoring, factory monitoring, logistic automation, crane monitoring, and intelligent transportation systems.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
