Energy management: Antaira Technologies is provider of industrial device networking and communication product solutions for harsh environments and announces its expansion in the industrial networking infrastructure family with the LMX-0800 series.

Antaira Technologies’ LMX-0800 series is an 8-port industrial managed Ethernet switch that supports a 12-48VDC power input range. Each unit is designed with eight 10/100Tx Fast Ethernet ports that provide a high EFT, surge (2,000VDC), and ESD (6,000VDC) protection. It is also built with a dual power input design and a reverse polarity protection. There is also a built-in relay warning function to alert maintainers when power failures occur. This unit is perfectly designed to fulfill special needs for industrial automation, outdoor applications, and extreme ambient weather environments.

This product series is pre-loaded with the “Layer 2” network management software. It supports an easy-to-use Web Console or Telnet through a serial console by using a Command Line Interface (CLI) configuration. Antaira’s managed switches provide the redundant networking ring function along with the Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) and the ITU-G.8032 support, which helps to eliminate the compatibility issue for an existing network. In addition, the unit has built-in SNMP, VLAN, IGMP, QoS features that help support network planners to increase data transmission performance within the network. The external USB2.0 port allows users to export and save all the configuration settings. Also, the flexible “custom label” feature allows network planners to name each connection port, making it easy to recognize each field device. This can become handy when working with remote management applications.

The LMX-0800 series is backed by a five year warranty and is IP30 rated, compact, fanless, DIN-Rail and wall mountable. Each series is built to withstand industrial networking hazards like shock, drop, vibration, and Electromagnetic Interference (EMI). The unit also has temperature extreme version options for either a standard temperature range (-10 to 70°C) or an extended operating temperature range (-40 to 75°C). The model series have the dimensions of 54mm (W) x 99mm (D) x 142mm (H) and a unit weight of 2.4 pounds.
