Taipei, Taiwan, 2011/11/29 - Korenix releases the USB WiFi dongle in the new firmware of its JetBox 3300 series Embedded Linux computers for enhancing mobility of the platforms through the use of wireless network communication in industrial front-end control applications - Korenix.co.
With the rapid improvements of modem technology and, therefore with the increasing importance of the wireless network applications, the need of integrating solutions with the possibility of non-wired data connectivity increases, while enabling users to achieve higher mobility, flexibility and extensiveness.
To answer the market need of network mobility, the JetBox 3300 series RISC-based computers now offer an opportunity for users to experience a more flexible solution by supporting USB wifi dongle.
From firmware version 1.8, the JetBox 3300 and JetBox 3350i-w enable support for wifi USB devices, such as AboCom WUG2700. By upgrading the new software in the JetBox 3300 series, you can benefit from performing unlimited, ubiquitous connections.
JetBox 3300 series, the embedded RISC-based computers with low power consumption and built-in Linux, are designed to provide advanced network performance in industrial front-end control applications. By combining Ethernet, USB, Serial and DIO ports, the compact computers can fit in a small system for easily performing networking, device and signal control, data storage etc… Using the rugged fanless design, from -40oC to 80oC wide operating temperature range, JetBox 3300 series which insure the stable, reliable and high performance data transfer under harsh industrial environments become a perfect system for front-end controller applications.
JetBox series, in addition to Wifi dongles, support 3G models for wireless communication.
The key features of the JetBox 3300 series are:
• Atmel ARM Processor with low power consumption for reliable performance;
• Embedded Linux ready for easy maintenance;
• Linux SDK for quick time-to-market;
• 2 LAN ports for Daisy-Chain Controller;
• 2 USB for data storage;
• 2 RS232/422/485 and 8DI & 8DO for device and signal control;
• One microSD card slot for customized configurations;
• Fan-less, ruggedized industrial design for anti-vibration/shock and -40~80oC wide operating temperature.
