PRESS RELEASE ON LIGHTPOINTE INDUSTRIAL WIRELESS RADIO:
LightPointe Introduces World’s First Ruggedized 60 GHz Radio Designed for Indoor and Outdoor Industrial Wireless Applications, and Harsh Environments
IndustrialLink IL60 is engineered for robust Gigabit capacity and reliability for a myriad of applications, including Industry 4.0.
San Diego, CA – June 12, 2017: LightPointe, a leading manufacturer of millimeter wave point-to-point radios and laser bridges used for ultra high capacity building-to-building connectivity, has introduced the world’s first ruggedized 60 GHz wireless bridge for industrial wireless applications and harsh environments. The IndustrialLink IL60 was designed for Gigabit capacity point to point deployments such as in factories, Machine to Machine (M2M) communications, rail-based and other moving platforms, and related applications where more robust and rugged radios—engineered to handle vibration and movement—can provide high reliability and long product lifespan. LightPointe’s industrial wireless radio is shipping now.
“LightPointe’s IndustrialLink IL60 wireless bridge is a ruggedized, special purpose 60 GHz point to point radio designed for robust performance in applications with vibration or movement, such as on rail-based manufacturing platforms, robotic equipment, as well as in special applications in harsh environments,” said Dr. Heinz Willebrand, CEO of LightPointe. “There are a myriad of applications which demand a more rugged radio and mount, which are beyond the design of radios engineered for building connectivity, 4G and 5G, and small cells. For example, LightPointe’s 60 GHz radios have been deployed in a steel factory on a mobile rail-based platform to communicate operational and quality parameters during steel production. The IndustrialLink IL60 is designed for such situations prone to vibration, movement, and varying distances between radios. It can operate from a flexible range of from 1 foot to about one mile, thanks to exclusive features such as LightPointe’s power control and 9 levels of Automatic Coding and Modulation (ACM). There are simply no other radios available with such robust hardware design and smart, self-optimizing performance.”
Compact, affordable point-to-point radio with an industry leading 9 levels of Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM), for unparalleled spectrum efficiency and performance.
The world's toughest, most robust
60 GHz Industrial Wireless Bridge purpose-built for harsh environments susceptible to vibration and movement. From factory's with moving platforms...to locations susceptible to earthquakes or high winds, no competing radio is tougher.
LightPointe’s IndustrialLink IL60 wireless bridge is a ruggedized, special purpose 60 GHz point to point radio designed for robust performance in applications with vibration or movement, such as on rail-based manufacturing platforms, robotic equipment, and mobile systems. It is also ideal for installations in areas prone to earthquakes or high winds. Our radios have been deployed in steel manufacturing plants and other industrial production environments where safety, reliability, and production quality is paramount. The IL60 is also ideal for deployment in harsh temporary locations (military theater, emergency response).
Unlike competing radios made of plastic, the IndustialLink's case is made of metal and is built to last. And thanks to LightPointe’s innovative Lens Antenna, which outperforms and is more stable than flat antennas, and a special rubberized radio mount, full duplex gigabit capacity performance is achieved. And an optional radio monitoring system with built-in BluetoothTM enables users to keep an eye on performance in real-time simply by using LightPointe’s AireLink Viewer App, which runs on a smartphone. And best of all, 60 GHz is license free in most countries—so your organization can install these radios quickly, without regulatory fees.
