5.8GHz IEEE 802.11a Access Point, Bridge, Client
PI Manufacturing presents outdoor access point to create a network bridge from central quarters to remote buildings.
With thorough testing, it was determined that data is sent at a frequency of 5.8 GHz and with the addition of an antenna, the data is capable of traveling a distance of 2 miles for optimal connection.
The device itself is weatherproof and waterproof where all of the connections are secured through casings that will prevent any infiltration of debris or water.

Wi-Fi Setup Tutorial
How it Works
- Distance between the sites: Earth Curvature, the higher the antenna needs to be.
- The Fresnel Zone: This is a electromechanical phenomenon, where light and radio signals get diffracted or bent from solid objects near their path. See table below showing the 60% of Fresnel Zone Values (Accepted clearing on path).
- Objects in the path: At a frequency of say 2.4 GHz, you need a clear line of sight (LOS). Tree tops will reflect or ground the signal. The theory is that the height of the tallest object in the path of a signal should be added to the Fresnel Zone and Earth Curvature clearance heights. In this case, one should check the height of the trees, hills or any object on the link path and add this to total Tower height.
