EWM-W192 K1 & K2 and EWM-C186K1 (EWM-W/C) wireless solutions are intended to provide Wi-Fi 5/Bluetooth 5.0 and LTE CAT16 respectively. EWM-W192 K1 & K2 are compatible with standard M.2 2230 A-E key form factor connectors, while EWM-C186 K1 connects to M.2 3042 key-B for easier wireless access. Both EWM-W/C models have FCC and CE-RED certified wireless antennas and cables to allow developers to easily add wireless solutions in diverse industrial, retail, and medical applications.
Advantech’s EWM-W/C feature multiple dipole antennas and cables (EWM-W192 K1 & K2 features 2 x dipole antennas & MHF4 RF connector cables, EWM-C186K1 features 4 x dipole antennas & MFH4 connector cables).
Advantech worked with Intel IoT BU to certify the EWM-W/C wireless solutions. This avoids the bottlenecks that are caused by RF testing,
General Manager of IoT Ecosystem & Channels at Intel, Steen Graham said, “We always want to provide tangible benefits to our customers. Removing certification obstacles at the beginning will reduce their time to market massively.”
The EWM-W/C wireless solutions also satisfy international safety standards for human exposure to electric, magnetic, and electromagnetic signals, and are CE RED, FCC, and IC certified. This makes them an ideal choice for EU, US, and Canadian customers. The streamlining of RF testing mean that only system-level EMC/EMI related tests are required.
Advantech’s wireless team used the company’s product ecosystems to test EWM-W/C compatibility to improve market adaptability. EWM-W/C kits are compatible with numerous embedded computers including EPC-T4286 and EPC-C301.
