Utility equipment: Networking and communication product solutions

Utility equipment: Antaira Technologies, a provider of industrial device networking and communication product solutions for harsh environment applications, announces its expansion in the industrial networking infrastructure family with the LMX-1002G-SFP series.

Antaira Technologies’ LMX-1002G-SFP series is a cost effective 10-port industrial gigabit managed Ethernet switch that supports a12~48VDC power input range. Each unit is designed with eight 10/100/1000Tx Fast Ethernet RJ45 ports and two 100/1000 dual rate SFP slots for fiber. This series supports Jumbo Frames and wide bandwidth for large Ethernet data packet transmissions. These switches are also made with high-density port counts for edge-level connectivity solutions. The LMX-1002G 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 makes it ideal for applications in a harsh environment requiring high reliability and distance extension capability.

Antaira’s new LMX-1002G-SFP industrial gigabit managed Ethernet switch series has been designed to fulfill industrial automation applications in harsh or outdoor environments. Some of these harsh environments include: power/utility, solar grids, windmills, oil/gas platforms, mining infrastructures, factory or process control automation, ITS - roadway traffic control or monitoring, building facility infrastructures, security surveillance and access control systems.

This product series is pre-loaded with “Layer 2” network management software, of which, it supports the ease of use Web Console or Telnet using a serial console by CLI configuration. All Antaira managed switches provide the ring network redundancy function with STP/RSTP/MSTP and the ITU-T G.8032 (ERPS – Ethernet Ring Protection Switch) protocol that supports a <50ms network recovery time, eliminating the compatibility issue for any present networking concerns. The advanced network filtering and security functions, IGMP, VLAN, QoS, SNMP, Port lock, RMON, Modbus TCP and 802.1X/HTTPS/SSH/SSL increase determinism and improve network management for remote SCADA systems or control network. Lastly, the flexible “custom label” feature allows networking planners to name each connection port. By naming each port, the networking planners can easily manage remote field devices.

The LMX-1002G-SFP series is backed by a 5-year warranty and the units are IP30 rated, compact, fanless, and DIN-Rail/wall mountable. Each unit is built to withstand industrial networking hazards like shock, drop, vibration, electromagnetic interference (EMI) and extreme temperatures. There are two operating temperature version models for either standard temperature (-10 ~ 70°C) or extended temperature (-40 ~ 75°C). Each unit has the dimensions of 46mm (W) x 99mm (D) x 142mm (H) and a unit weight that is less than 2 pounds.
