Onboard Wi-Fi Access Point DT-5302

Neratec DT-5302 is a robust high-performance Wi-Fi Access point for industry and public transport.

  • Based on 802.11n WLAN technology, adapted for special in-vehicle and onboard requirements
  • 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz operations, with 3x3 MIMO up to 450 Mbit/s
  • Robust DFS Detection for 5GHz ETSI and FCC requirements
  • Advanced RF front end enables optimized operation nearby other WLAN/3G/4G networks
  • Better link span-optimized transmitter and receiver performance 
  • IP66 housing and extended operating temperature range: -40°C to 70°C
  • 2 x 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet with M12 connector
  • Isolated 24VDC power feed
  • EN50155 compliant


The Neratec DT-5302 is a high performance Wi-Fi access point designed for onboard installations. It supports a wide variety of wireless applications including, for example, passenger information systems and maintenance, wireless voice communications and wireless video. Once the initial configuration is done, the device can be remotely managed using a standard Web browser or SNMP management tools.

IEEE 802.11 Compatible – with more performance

Neratec DT-5302 is compatible with the IEEE 802.11 standards, but designed for demanding and harsh environmental conditions where complex radio propagation constellations, physical shocks and vibrations are present.

DT-5302R is optimized for better link span, faster roaming, higher payload data rates and improved resistance against typical electrical interferences in industrial environments. These features provide more reliable data communications, best-in-class service availability, long lifespans and lower lifecycle costs. 

Installations and Applications

Neratec DT-5302 is used as part of a system solution developed and installed by system integrators and service providers. Typical installations consist of 50 to 500 Neratec DT-5302 as access points installed onboard of vehicles or trains. DT-5302 can support a large number of third party mobile devices as clients. Our customers benefit from long-term availability, high reliability and good system integration support based on Neratec in-house development.

Applications for Neratec DT-5302 include:

  • Mobile passenger/driver information systems
  • Public wi-fi access onboard trains, buses and ships
  • Security applications at terminals and depots
  • Large area coverage wireless communications for moving objects in industrial environments
