Amped AP600EX is high power wireless n 600mw access point, indoor and outdoor usage, weatherproof plus high gain directional antenna.
Running a wireless network to cover long distance clients would not be possible with standard wireless router which is typically powered by 2dBi Omni-directional antenna. Omni-directional antenna broadcasts the wireless signal in 360 degrees all directions with the router in the center. Typically this standard 2dBi antenna can reach up to 300ft distance in ideal environment. The longer the distance, the weaker the signal strength is.
With your existing standard wireless router, to cover longer distance coverage you can add wireless signal booster antenna such as Amped WA12 12dBi high gain antenna. With this antenna booster you can get 2x the range of your existing signal. With the existing wired network in your industrial environment, to cover long distance clients you can add high power outdoor wireless access point with high gain directional antenna. Amped offers you AP600EX high gain wireless n access point.
