Antaira Technologies, a developer and manufacturer of industrial device networking and communication products, has added the LNX-2012GN-SFP series to its industrial networking infrastructure products.
Antaira’s new LNX-2012GN-SFP industrial gigabit managed Ethernet switch series has been designed for harsh or outdoor site use. This unit has one of the highest density SFP fibre port counts in the market for a DIN-Rail unit, the firm says. The SFP fibre connectivity of this unit is suitable the developers say for centralised connection of multiple devices, especially where a lot of electrical noise makes SFP fibre immune to such issues. Some applications for the switch include: utilities, factory and process control automation, windmills, mining and traffic control and monitoring.
The LNX-2012GN-SFP series is described as a 20-port industrial gigabit managed Ethernet switch line that supports a 12~48VDC power input range. Each unit is designed with eight 10/100/1000Tx Fast Ethernet RJ45 ports and twelve 100/1000 dual rate SFP slots for fibre. With a 40 Gigabit backplane speed, the LNX-2012GN-SFP supports jumbo frames and wide bandwidth for large Ethernet data packet transmissions. These switches are also made with high density port counts.
The product series provides high EFT, surge (2,000VDC) and ESD (6,000VDC) protection. These units are built to have a dual power input design with reverse polarity protection, and there is also a built-in relay warning function to alert maintainers when any ports break or power failures occur.
This product series comes pre-loaded with “Layer 2” network management software that supports an ease of use Web Console or Telnet through the serial console by CLI configuration. These managed switches provide the ring network redundancy function with STP/RSTP/MSTP and the Super Ring redundancy protocol which supports a <30ms network recovery time, the developers add. The built-in SNMP, VLAN, IGMP, QoS features support network planners to increase data transmission performance within the network.
