Lantronix, Inc., a provider of machine-to-machine connectivity solutions, has announced the availability of the new xPico Wi-Fi module, a compact, embedded wireless device server designed for machine-to-Wi-Fi connectivity.
Simultaneous access point and client functionality, a key differentiator for the xPico Wi-Fi module, allows the creation of its own secure Wi-Fi network for direct access as well as maintaining a Wi-Fi client connection to the existing Wi-Fi network. This allows machines to be directly accessed via smartphone or tablet.
With Lantronix's Zero-Host Load architecture, there is no need to manage or load drivers on the system or write a single line of code. The xPico Wi-Fi has been optimized to bring easy and secure wireless functionality to a wide range of machine to machine applications from small battery powered devices to large industrial installations, the company said.
"We believe the xPico-WiFi offers the ideal combination of small size, power efficiency and functionality to the M2M marketplace," said Kurt Busch, President and CEO of Lantronix. "With the secure access point functionality, instead of looking up cryptic codes, a technician or operator can now use a tablet as the primary interface to a machine, bringing increased productivity along with a rich user experience."
With the xPico Wi-Fi embedded module, Lantronix brings its industry-leading machine-to-machine connectivity expertise into one of the world's smallest and easiest to use machine-to-Wi-Fi device server. The xPico Wi-Fi device boasts a tiny footprint of 24mm x 16.5mm, and is pin and form factor compatible with other members of the Lantronix xPico product family, the company added.
According to the company, key benefits of xPico Wi-Fi device include: easy to deploy and use; innovative form factor; mobile-ready, which enables direct access to device data via smartphones, tablets and connected PCs; unique simultaneous soft-AP and client mode; 256-bit AES encryption; operating environment at extended temperatures of minus 40 degrees to plus 85 degrees centigrade; standards-based; designed with customizable capabilities for rapid OEM adoption; low-power profile optimized for battery-powered devices; peripheral connectivity; ease-of-migration; and 5-year limited warranty.
