WiFi deployment specialist turns to Spelsberg for enclosure customisation

01 February 2023

Large-scale WiFi network installations across industrial and commercial sites require access points. Extending WiFi signals in outdoor or harsh locations, access point devices demand protection from the elements.

However, the vital protection that an industrial enclosure provides must not inhibit the internet signal. WiFi deployment specialist, DW WiFi, turned to Spelsberg UK to engineer a casing that could resolve the challenge.   

To create a WiFi network at scale, like those needed across a factory or hospital, access points are installed. Connected by cable to the site’s central internet network hub, access points act like WiFi routers, but typically offer an improved signal. 
WiFi connectivity might also be needed outside, for example, at a goods yard, with mobile readers receipting deliveries. This means that access point devices have to be protected from water ingress, as well as impact. 

They can also be mounted in harsh indoor environments, such as frozen food storage areas, so they additionally need to provide protection against a variety of temperature extremes.
