bintec WI1003n

Rugged industrial WLAN access point which can be used in access mode, client mode or for wireless bridge connections.

Product Description

The WI1003n is an industrial-grade access point that offers IP40 class environmental protection and is suited to a wide range of industrial applications or uses in other harsh surroundings. The device`s robust metal housing and large operating temperature range make it suitable for use in difficult environmental conditions.

It`s equipped with a high-performance 802.11 abgn radio module and MIMO 2x2 technology, enabling raw data rates of up to 300 Mbps. The radio module can be used in either the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz frequency bands.

Thanks to the availability of these different operating modes, the device gives operators a great deal of flexibility. In addition functioning as an access point, the bintec WI1003n can also operate as a wireless LAN client or establish bridge links. In bridge link mode, this model`s high transmission power of 200 mW at 5 GHz and excellent sensitivity give you extended range and higher transmission rates.

Wireless connectivity for moving equipment

When used in its WLAN client mode, the bintec WI1003n offers an easy way to connect machines to the company network. By scanning for suitable radio channels in the background, the bintec the WI1003n can switch to the next access point with practically no interruption whatsoever when a machine moves out of range of its current access point.

The bintec WI1003n for logistics

If you need to provide wireless coverage across a large storage facility, for instance to connect handheld scanners to your inventory management system, the bintec WI1003n in conjunction with a bintec WLAN Controller is an ideal solution. The WI1003n`s IAPP protocol together with careful radio cell planning ensures optimal roaming behavior for your wireless scanners in this scenario.


To configure individual devices, all you need is an internet browser. The device`s integrated web server allows for rapid configuration and monitoring via the graphic user interface. If you are using the devices as access points however and plan to install more than two of them, a managed network that includes a bintec WLAN Controller is the preferred solution

WLAN Controller

Optimize your WLAN network by using a bintec WLAN controller. The bintec WLAN controller allows configuration of your customers WLAN network in lesser than 30 minutes ... and this without deeper WLAN know-how! The automatic RF management system relieves you the time killing search for free WLAN channels and selects the best channels for the system.

For smaller WLAN networks up to 6 APs bintec access points are able to take over the function of the WLAN controller by themself and work as quasi master APs. For networks with up to 12 APs you will need a bintec RS series router as WLAN controller hardware. You are able to manage bigger WLANs with up to 150 AP by using a bintec RXL12x00 as WLAN controller hardware.

Mounting and installation

The WI1003n is suitable for standard wall mounting. You can alternatively use the included DIN rail adapter for mounting the device on a control panel in any of four different directions. The unit can be powered either via PoE or a 100-240V plug-in adapter.
