Energy management: 20-port industrial gigabit managed Ethernet switches

energy management Antaira Technologies

Energy management: Antaira Technologies is a developer and manufacturer of industrial device networking and communication product solutions for harsh environment applications and announces its expansion in the industrial networking infrastructure line with the LNX-2012GN-SFP series.

Antaira’s new LNX-2012GN-SFP industrial gigabit managed Ethernet switch series has been designed to fulfill applications in harsh or outdoor environments. This unit has one of the highest density SFP fiber port counts in the market for a DIN-Rail unit. The extensive SFP fiber connectivity of this unit is ideal for centralized connection of multiple devices, especially in environments with a lot of electrical noise where SFP fiber is immune to such issues. Some applications where the LNX-2012GN-SFP switch works well includes: power/utility, factory/process control automation, windmills, mining infrastructures and ITS - roadway traffic control/monitoring applications.

Antaira Technologies’ LNX-2012GN-SFP series is a cost effective 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 fiber. 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 for edge-level connectivity solutions. The LNX-2012GN-SFP 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 requiring 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. This high density managed switch line provides the ring network redundancy function with STP/RSTP/MSTP and the Super Ring redundancy protocol which supports a <30ms network recovery time, eliminating the compatibility issue for any existing network concerns. In addition, the built-in SNMP, VLAN, IGMP, QoS features support network planners to increase data transmission performance within the network.

The LNX-2012GN-SFP 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 to 70°C) or extended temperature (-40 to 75°C). The models have the dimensions of 96.4mm (W) x 105.5mm (D) x 154mm (H) and a unit weight of 2.7 pounds.
