The TS-WIFIBOX-2 Application Kit includes a complete solution for 802.11b/g/n WiFi applications. The complete assembly includes a TS-7553 250MHz ARM9 CPU, a TS-ENC820 plastic enclosure, and an internal 802.11b/g/n WiFi USB Adapter. In addition, Linux drivers and software packages are installed to provide an out-of-the-box WiFi solution.

Hardware

The TS-WIFIBOX-2 product is a small embedded computer box with extra accessories and pre-configured software packages. It is designed to provide extreme performance for applications which demand high reliability, fast bootup/startup, and WiFi connectivity at low cost and low power (about 3.2 watts), such as a gateway or firewall, protocol converter, Ethernet to WiFi bridge, web server, WiFi audio, or unattended remote applications.

TS-WIFIBOX-2 measures 139.88mm (5.507 in.) W x 102.02mm (4.016 in.) D x 35.06mm (1.380 in.) H. The end-plate brings out 1 10/100 Ethernet port, 1 USB Host port, 1 USB Device port, 2 user controlled red and green LEDs, multipurpose reset/script button, power input and COM port. The power source is either 5-12V DC through a commercial-grade barrel connector on the front of the unit, USB cable via USB Device port or Power over Ethernet (with OP-POE81). The integrated 802.11b/g/n WiFi USB adapter makes use of one USB channel and provides reliable high-speed wireless connectivity. There is one microSD card socket available inside, which provides reliable and high capacity (SDHC) storage.

The quantity 1 pricing for the TS-WIFIBOX-2 Application Kit with the TS-7553 and WiFi adapter is $185. The TS-WIFIBOX-2 can also be ordered with a DIN Mountable enclosure for $197. Quantity discount starts at 10 units. Contact Technologic Systems for ordering and further information.

Software

The TS-WIFIBOX-2 comes with a TS-7553 which includes software features such as:

  • Boots Linux 2.6.24 out-of-the-box in less than 3 seconds (to a shell prompt).
  • MicroSD card pre-installed with Debian "Lenny" Linux distribution.
  • Un-brickable design ensures 100% recoverability from microSD card in case of on-board XNAND drive erasure.
  • Startup Linux mini-root scripts allows flexible root and backup filesystem selection (microSD, NFS, USB flash) as well as software field upgrade support.

The TS-WIFIBOX-2 already includes all the necessary Linux drivers and packages in order to enable out-of-the-box WiFi application productivity. Contact Technologic Systems for further information on the TS-WIFIBOX-2 software solution or visit the software section of the TS-7553 page.
