sledNET Access Point
While sledNET is a versatile companion when riding alone, it's full power stands out in a group setting. Certain features such as voice communication and real-time data telemetry rely on a wireless network. More often than not however, a cell phone network isn't available on the trail or in the wilderness. That's why sledNET uses Bluetooth for short-range communication and Wi-FI for long-range communication. Using Wi-Fi however requires an existing Wi-Fi network, and MobileApp Systems offers the sledNET Access Point radio that is designed specifically for snowmobiles. The weatherproof sledNET Access Point is powered by the sled's 12-volt supply and attaches to the sled's handlebars using a unique rubber ball and socket mounting system. With up to 600mW of power, each sledNET Access Point acts as a repeater between sleds and extends the overall length of the sledNET mobile network.
- Revolutionary Design
- Power Connection Options
- Flexible Mounting Options
The weatherproof sledNET Access Point combines a wireless radio, omni-directional antenna, and a rugged aluminum housing to create a powerful and robust outdoor Access Point, Client, or Bridge. A variety of mounting arms can be attached between its unique rubberized aluminum ball and your equipment. Tolerance is built-in for shock, vibration, temperature extremes, and moisture that is commonly found in demanding environments.
With up to 600mW of power and enhanced receiver design, the sledNET Access Point is ideal for long-distance links, capable of 100Mbps+ real TCP/IP speeds. The built-in LED signal strength meter provides link confirmation and helps with antenna alignment.
Power Connection Options
Power is supplied to the sledNET Access Point using a modified Ethernet cable. The cable has a standard RJ-45 termination on one end, and a choice of several termination types on the other. Passive Power over Ethernet is used as a simple way of supplying power to the sledNET Access Point. The Ethernet cable contains 8 conductors - 4 conductors (1,2,3,6) are used for data transmission and the rest (4,5,7,8) are used for supplying power. Depending on the power connection option, one end of the cable will be terminated with a 12V accessory outlet adapter, a phono plug, or 6" pigtail leads.
Flexible Mounting Options
The sledNET Access Point aluminum mounting block incorporates a patented rubber ball and socket system. Far and away the most innovative mounting system of its kind, this unique mounting system tolerates the shock and vibration found in most demanding environments. This socket technology allows for almost infinite adjustment and perfect antenna alignment. A double-socket arm connects the 1" rubberized aluminum ball on the sledNET Access Point to a choice of several equipment base plates. A popular base plate is the handlebar stainless steel u-bolt for snowmobile applications.
