  • Flexible deployment – With ruggedized features to meet IP65/IP67 ratings, a compact design and the ability to operate under extreme temperatures, the BAT450-F can be mounted anywhere.
  • Customized connections – A wide range of configurable network options, including wireless, wired and cellular, ensure reliable connections and high network availability.
  • Powerful operating system – Hirschmann’s operating system, HiLCOS, adds a rich set of redundancy protocols and best-in-class security features to the BAT450-F family.

Your Benefits

The access points in the BAT450-F family are compact and lightweight, yet able to withstand extreme environments and temperatures. This product family offers a complete solution for industrial engineers looking to deploy a reliable, customizable and versatile wireless infrastructure.

BAT450-F Access Point Family

The BAT450-F family is the answer to an increasing need to fit powerful wireless access points in industrial locations where space is a premium and ease of installation is required.

Through these access points, network managers can quickly set up a wireless network infrastructure through the Automatic Wireless Distribution System (AutoWDS). With its modular design, the BAT450-F can be customized for a variety of network functions, country-specific approvals and port interface types.

The BAT450-F access points are ideal for use in transportation network environments, specifically the railway industry. Dual-band radios enable simultaneous voice and data communications on board trains, and its proven technology also offers wired and wireless communication between rail cars, known as coach-to-coach coupling.

For other industrial environments where the network needs to communicate in harsh conditions and with limited installation space, the BAT450-F offers a compact and ruggedized design that is also cost efficient. Its low weight and small footprint could in future enable industries – including power transmission and distribution, process automation, and oil and gas – to mount the device on walls and masts or in confined spaces.

Product Description

The access points in the new BAT450-F family provide a complete wireless solution offering WLAN, Ethernet and Wireless Wide Area Network (WWAN) Interfaces. These wireless devices can operate as an Access Client, Access Point or managed Access Point in combination with the BATControllers.

The built-in Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) firewall controls communication either for bridged or routed traffic, enabling the creation of zones according to the guiding parameters of a reliable Defense in Depth strategy.


The five core access point configurations include:

  • BAT450-F: 1 x WLAN / 1 x ETH / 1 x serial interface V.24
  • BAT450-F: 1 x WLAN / 2 x ETH / 1 x serial interface V.24
  • BAT450-F: 2 x WLAN / 1 x ETH / 1 x serial interface V.24
  • BAT450-F: 2 x WLAN / 2 x ETH / 1 x serial interface V.24
  • BAT450-F: 1 x WLAN / 1 x ETH / 1 x LTE / 1 x serial interface V.24

The BAT450-F is designed to support Industrial IoT (IIoT) and wide area network (WAN) functionality through its modular/extension interface.

Its WLAN radio module complies with the IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n WLAN standard, enabling data rates of up to 450 Mbit/s in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands by using 3 x multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO) antenna technology. Dedicated versions with country-specific approvals are available.

The WWAN/Cellular module supports LTE, 3G and 2G, enabling data rates of up to 100 Mbit/s Download, 50 Mbit/s Upload by using 2 x 2 MIMO.
