Utility safety: Networking and communication solutions for harsh environment applications

Utility equipment: Antaira Technologies is a developer and manufacturer of industrial device networking and communication solutions for harsh environment applications and announces its expansion in the industrial PoE networking infrastructure family with the LNP-0500G and LNP-0500G-24 series.

Antaira is fulfilling the need of low port count gigabit connectivity solutions for industrial applications with the new LNP-0500G and LNP-0500G-24 series. The LNP-0500G Ethernet switch is rugged and reliable, which is perfect for applications surrounding surveillance systems, data centers, research labs or any location that requires simple gigabit speed network expansion. The unique low voltage input and ability to provide high power PoE allows the LNP-0500G-24 to fulfill transportation, factory automation vision inspection, solar and remote location surveillance applications.

Antaira Technologies’ LNP-0500G and LNP-0500G-24 series is a 5-port industrial PoE+ gigabit unmanaged Ethernet switch, with a 48 to 55VDC high voltage power input(LNP-0500G) and a 12 to 36VDC low voltage power input (LNP-0500G-24). Each unit is designed with five gigabit Ethernet ports that are IEEE 802.3at compliant (PoE+) on ports 1-4 (data and power output maximum 30W/port) and are backwards compatible with IEEE 802.3af. The series support MDI/MDI-X functions and 10Kbytes jumbo frame. This makes it ideal for applications that demand high bandwidth and long distance communication.

This product series provides high EFT, surge (2,000 VDC), and ESD (6,000VDC) protection to prevent any unregulated voltage and can support the power redundancy feature using a dual power input design with reverse polarity protection. There is also a built-in relay warning function to alert maintainers when power failures occur.

The LNP-0500G and LNP-0500G-24 are backed by a five-year warranty and are IP30 rated, compact, fanless, DIN-Rail and wall mountable. Each series is built to withstand industrial networking hazards like shock, drop, vibration, electromagnetic interference (EMI) and temperature extreme version options for either a standard (-10 to 70°C) or extended (-40 to 75°C) operating temperature range. The LNP-0500G model has dimensions of 30mm (W) x 99mm (D) x 142mm (H) and a unit weight of one pound, while the LNP-0500G-24 model has dimensions of 46mm (W) x 99mm (D) x 142mm (H) and a unit weight of one and a half pounds.
