Which installation guidelines do you have to watch out for with the transponders for the Mobile Panel 227 IWLAN and the Mobile Panel 277F IWLAN?

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

The transponders and the Mobile Panel 277 IWLAN as well as the Mobile Panel 277F IWLAN communicate by radio waves exclusively in the 2.45 GHz area. This is irrespective of the WLAN Standard used (such as IEEE 802.11h / 5 GHz) between the Mobile Panel IWLAN and the access point. To ensure communication without interference, there should be no materials present that shield or absorb high frequency waves or they should only be present under certain conditions. For configuration and installation, you must consider the points described in detail in the PDF document - see attachment 1 - so that the field data in the operating instructions of the Mobile Panel 277 IWLAN and Mobile Panel 277F IWLAN is valid.
