New release: CrossLink AI wireless module
CrossLink AI is a robust and compact global wireless access module first presented at Agritechnica 2015 where it generated a lot of interest. It is an extension module, connected via USB to CrossControl displays and controllers.
CrossLink AI features GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System receivers) with concurrent GPS/GLONASS, GSM/GPRS with 3G, Dual band Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth Class 1. With radio certification for all major markets, CrossLink AI is a lean and robust solution for getting a machine connected anywhere in the world.
The GSM/GPRS interface has the option for a diversity antenna in addition to main antenna. The diversity antenna increases the robustness of the connection to the network and results in faster data throughput speeds. The WLAN interface features different modes - Client mode makes CrossLink AI a client device that can connect to available wifi networks, Access point mode makes CrossLink AI an access point to which other WiFi devices can connect and WiFi direct enables CrossLink AI to easily connect with other devices without
requiring a wireless access point.
