Utility equipment: Eight-port managed switch line

Utility equipment: Antaira Technologies is a global leading developer and manufacturer of industrial device networking and communication product solutions for harsh environments and is proud to announce its expansion in the industrial networking infrastructure family with the LMX-0802 series.

Antaira’s new industrial managed Ethernet switch line (LMX-0802 series) has been designed to fulfill applications in harsh or outdoor environments. Some applications where the LMX-0802 switch works well in include: power/utility, solar grids, windmills, mining infrastructures, factory/process control automation, ITS - roadway traffic control/monitoring, building facility outdoor infrastructures or security surveillance and access control systems.

Antaira Technologies’ LMX-0802 series is a cost effective 8-port industrial managed Ethernet switch with a 12~48VDC power input range support. Each unit is designed with six 10/100Tx fast Ethernet RJ45 ports, and two 100Fx fiber ports with either an SC or ST connector. The fiber modes that the LMX-0802 series supports include multi-mode, single-mode and WDM. The product series provides high EFT, surge (2,000VDC) and ESD (6,000VDC) protection. It is also built with a dual power input design with reverse polarity protection, and has a built-in relay warning function to alert maintainers when power failures occur. This makes it ideal for applications demanding a high reliability and distance extension.

This product series is 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. All Antaira managed switches provide the ring network redundancy function with RSTP and the ITU-G.8032 support, which eliminates the compatibility issue for any existing network concern. In addition, the built-in SNMP, VLAN, IGMP, QoS features support network planners to increase data transmission performance within the network. The external USB2.0 port allows the user to export and save all the configuration settings. 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-0802 series is backed by a five year warranty and the units 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 extreme temperatures. There are two operating temperature version models for either standard temperature (-10 ~ 70°C) or extended temperature (-40 ~ 75°C). The models have the dimensions of 54mm (W) x 99mm (D) x 142mm (H) and a unit weight of 2.4 pounds.
