Hirschmann OpenBAT hardware platform delivers maximum flexibility for highest speed and reliability.


OpenBAT family comprises of the BAT-R (IP30) and BAT-F (IP65/67) series of WLAN access points, which are fully compatible with the previous BAT54 and BAT300 models from Hirschmann™. Both OpenBAT series have entirely new hardware and operate with HiLCOS.
HiLCOS is the most powerful operating system in the automation industry, while providing support for IPv4/6 routing. All OpenBAT devices comply with the IEEE 802.11n WLAN standard – enabling data rates of up to 450 Mbit/s in both the 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz bands by using
MIMO antenna technology. This means that the access points – also employable as clients, routers or bridges – can be used to quickly set up meshed networks, wireless distribution systems and point-to-point connections. Also possible are WAN and VPN applications.
