Vaisala AP10 is a wireless device for Vaisala’s VaiNet technology. It connects up to 32 RFL100 data loggers to the viewLinc Monitoring System, transferring measurement data to the viewLinc Enterprise Server. It also allows remote configuration and management of data loggers by the viewLinc administrator. A wired Ethernet connection to the viewLinc Enterprise Server is needed. New data loggers are registered through the viewLinc Enterprise Server software, and AP10 automatically adds and syncs them.


Key Benefits

Longer range in complex environments
VaiNet communicates outside of more heavily trafficked 2.4 GHz bands, making the signal less vulnerable to interference. Additionally, VaiNet’s low frequency signal means much longer range and better penetration in complex, obstructed environments like warehouses; at least 100 meters.

Reliable connectivity
Once accepted in viewLinc, VaiNet data loggers stay synchronized, even in situations where other nearby VaiNet networks overlap. Redundancy is achieved through load distribution between VaiNet access points, which share multiple loggers in range.

Data integrity ensured
VaiNet AP10 access points transfer data from the data loggers to viewLinc Enterprise Server. Both the access point and the software verify that the data is received correctly. Once the data is verified, it is stored to viewLinc’s secure database and protected from tampering and loss.
