The Wifi module for the AlphaAir Freshbox 25
The WPS function guarantees you a secure and fast connection to the router. In addition, direct access without a router is possible in access point mode. Here you can specify SSID and PWD of a router.
Switch between HTML mode (display of device live values in the browser) and tool mode (Windows configuration tool) simply by DIP switch. Devices from Wifi firmware WS181011 and newer can be configured comfortably via the browser in HTML mode.
Since the last improvement of the Wifi module, the module has an additional HTML mode, whereby cross-platform live values can be retrieved and a larger antenna range.
So that you can also benefit from future updates of the Wifi module, update your Wifi module uncomplicated via the Internet.
The suitable circuit board for the Wifi module
If you would like to upgrade your already purchased AlphaAir Freshbox 25 with the Wifi module, please check in advance whether your device has the suitable circuit board.
A board with voltage regulator from "TI" must be installed, e.g. "TI 39E" or "TI 5BE".
You will receive the module inserted ready for operation if you order the Wifi module together with an AlphaAir Freshbox 25.

Establishing a connection to the Wifi module
Direct connection to the internal access point of the WLAN module
No live data will be transmitted to the server without your consent. When connecting the module via WLAN, it is possible to transmit its assigned IP address, the MAC address of the module, as well as the firmware version of module and motherboard to the server. This makes it easier for you to contact the module without having to search for the assigned IP address in the router. If you do not want this, set the left DIP switch to "ON" (private mode). Then you have to read out the local IP address by means of a USB cable via Windows tool or in the router.
