WM6300N-UART

The WM6300N-UART module is a complete dual band (2.4/5GHz) IEEE 802.11abgn based wireless device that directly provides a wireless interface to any equipment with a serial interface for data transfer. It integrates all WLAN protocol and configuration functionality, networking stack in embedded firmware to make a dual band 802.11n WLAN solution for a variety of applications. As a wireless serial modem, the WM6300N-UART originates and terminates TCP and UDP connections, enabling a variety of M2M applications at low cost and small footprint.

Applications:
• Seamless WiFi connectivity for any equipment with a serial interface
• Industrial M2M communications
• Point of Sale Terminals
• Metering
• Security Cameras & Surveillance Equipment
• Warehousing
• Digital Picture Frames
• Logistics and Freight Management
• Several Medical Applications including Patient Monitoring, Remote Diagnostics etc.

Range
Range varies with the conditions under with wireless communication is sought. For large office environments, in the presence of obstacles, a range of over 30 meters is observed, while in open, line-of-sight environments, over 300 meters is observed, with several Mbps throughput in both cases.
