BAT450-F Industrial Wireless LAN Access Points

The family of industrial WLAN access points offers a complete solution to deploy a reliable, customizable and versatile wireless infrastructure while maximizing cost effectiveness.


The BAT450-F family's WLAN access points feature an extremely rugged, compact design for industrial needs and can be customized to support a variety of wireless and wired connections.

These WLAN devices can be used in combination with the BAT controllers as Access Client or Access Point.

  • Reliably deploy in harsh environments and mounting areas due to ruggedized, compact design
  • Ensure maximum network availability and data security across wireless connections with secure HiLCOS operating software
  • Increase efficiency and resiliency in rail applications with option of direct 110 V DC power supply
  • Configurable design for maximum flexibility and modular network interfaces
  • WLAN radio versions comply with the IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n
  • Enables data rates up to 450 Mbit/s in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands via 3 x 3 MIMO antenna technology
  • WWAN/Cellular radio version supporting LTE (up to 100Mbit/s), 3G, 2G and GPS/GLONASS
  • Gigabit Ethernet ports, including X-coded M12 connector technology
  • Automatic mesh connections through Automatic Wireless Distribution System (AutoWDS) functions
  • Operates at an extended temperature range (-40 °C to +70 °C)
  • Adheres to IP65/IP67 protection ratings
  • Power input via 24 V DC, 110 V DC and Power over Ethernet (PoE); connectivity options for WLAN and/or LTE with two SIM cards

The Hirschmann BAT450-F family of access points are ideal for use by industrial engineers across a variety of sectors where space and operating conditions are primary concerns.

The main application of the option equipped with the 110 V DC power supply is onboard rail cars and offers the following configurations and benefits:

  • 110 V DC + WLAN + LTE: retrofit passenger WiFi onto trains in a single box
  • 110 V DC + WLAN + WLAN: connect train redundantly to trackside with Parallel Redundancy Protocol (PRP) or Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) and provide passenger WiFi
  • Coach-to-coach coupling: connect coaches automatically or control via serial connection
