PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Rockwell Automation Fair (Booth
#506) -- FreeWave Technologies, (http://www.freewave.com), manufacturer of the
most reliable, high-performance spread spectrum and licensed radios for
critical data transmission, today announced the FGR2-P, a board level version
of its award-winning FGR2-PE Series
(http://www.freewave.com/products/allproducts/fgr2pe.aspx) of license-free,
long-range wireless data radios.

The FGR2-P offers the same capabilities as the FGR2-PE, such as industrial
serial and Ethernet wireless connectivity using license-free spread spectrum
for data communication over long distances. It can easily be incorporated into
the Rockwell Automation® family of Programmable Logic Controller (PLC)
solutions for markets that rely on industrial automation solutions, such as
manufacturing, water/wastewater, electric power/smart grid and energy/oil and
gas.

"This is the latest in a series of product offerings from FreeWave that
complements the PAC/PLC line of automation solutions from Rockwell
Automation," explained Ashish Sharma, chief marketing officer at FreeWave
Technologies. "Our partnership with Rockwell Automation is important to
FreeWave. Their customers are always searching for newer and more robust
solutions to meet their industrial automation requirements. The FGR2-P offers
one more tool in their arsenal to increase maximum productivity and long-term
efficiency."

The FGR2-P is compatible with other FreeWave FGRPlus family radios and offers
users a second, switched Ethernet port as well as two serial ports to meet the
demands of customers' wireless automation requirements. The ports enable a
transition from serial to Ethernet data communication without having to
replace wireless communication hardware later on, or operate both serial and
Ethernet communication independently and simultaneously on the same platform.

The FGR2-P is on display in FreeWave's booth (#506) at the Automation Fair®
(http://www.rockwellautomation.com/events/automationfair/).
