Give easy and robust industrial wireless access to your industrial cabinets or machines

Anybus Wireless Bolt Serial enables you to connect industrial machines and devices to a wireless network. It is attached to a cabinet or a machine to enable wireless access over Bluetooth®, or WiFi (Wireless LAN). It converts serial RS232/RS485 data to TCP/IP communication over the wireless link. It also works as a router for Modbus-TCP to Modbus-RTU enabling transparent access to all your existing serial Modbus devices.

With Anybus Wireless Bolt you get an all-in-one package featuring, connector, communication processor, and integrated antenna in the same unit, with an industrial IP66/IP67 protection class.
