5G WiFi Adapter for Axiocam 208 Color

Post by Perry Bain »

We had 6 Zeiss Axiocam 208 Color cameras in a digital classroom setup that was working well for us. These came with a 5G Wi-Fi adapter (Comfast CF-913AC V2). We purchased 2 additional cameras, and these units came with a different adapter (426570-9100-000 CF-913ACZ). The new adapters seem to be incompatible with 5G (and the cameras cannot "see" the 5G network we had set up for our digital classroom when these are used). Our Zeiss rep then replaced all of our 5G adapters with the 426570-9100-000 CF-913ACZ adapters (so that they would all match), telling us this was all that is available. We have found the performance to be poor with the new adapters (in a 2G WLAN), and the signal is often lost, even when using only 5 microscopes.

Can anyone tell me if there is a different adapter I can purchase (from Zeiss or elsewhere) that will connect these cameras to a 5G network?

Thanks,

Yes, those connected fine with 5G, but none of the new adapters can see that WLAN.
