5. WiFi settings switch and WiFi antenna
The HAWK 8000 is equipped with an integrated WiFi adapter
(see Fig. 9) providing wireless connectivity using the IEEE
802.11a/b/g/n standard. The RP-SMA antenna connector is
for the connection of the tilt-and-swivel 2.4 GHz antenna
included in the shipment.
WiFi Configuration Switch
Adjacent to the WiFi antenna is a 3-position configuration
switch, with the following settings:
(Default, middle position) WiFi adapter is disabled.
(Left position) Controller provides operation as a
WiFi access point for up to 20 clients.
(Right position) Controller operates as a client to an
existing 802.11a/b/g/n router or access point.
To use, either screw in the antenna directly (see Fig. 9) or use
an optional coax cable extension kit (CBL-WIFI-EXT) to locate
the antenna up to 2 m away. An associated LED remains lit
whenever the WiFi is enabled.
