When looking for a communication solution for factory automation, power utilities, wastewater treatment plants, security, transportation, or an outdoor environment, you will need network switches specifically designed to stand up to extreme temperatures, vibration, and shock. Look no further. Antaira Technologies’ Ethernet switches are high performance, cost-effective, easy to install, and manufactured to the highest quality standards. Built for nearly any industrial or outdoor location, these switches include IEEE protocol support, copper and fiber ports, Power over Ethernet, web and command-line administration, management, redundant power, and network redundancy. All come with a 5-year warranty.
Antaira Technologies has a complete line of industrial Ethernet switches to choose from. Capacity ranges from 2 to 48 ports and speeds to 10 Gbps.
Nearly all of their switches are IP30 rated or better, DIN-rail ready, rated for surge protection up to 2,000 VDC and ESD protection up to 6,000 VDC. Antaira offers models that are either managed or unmanaged. Managed switches can set up and modify the network configuration, while unmanaged switches allow for easy setup and deployment. With Layer 2 management, a managed switch may be configured for port mirroring, VLAN tagging, 8K MAC address table, LACP, QoS, and a whole lot more.
For example, the cost-effective LNP-0500G unmanaged industrial Ethernet switch features 4 Power over Ethernet (PoE+) ports of Gigabit (10/100/1000TX) speed. It supports the IEEE802.3af/at specification and offers a maximum of 30 watts per port of power. If you require more port capacity, then take a look at Antaira’s LMX-2012G-SFP 20-port industrial managed switch. It features 20 Gigabit ports (10/100/1000TX) configured as 8 copper RJ45 ports and 12 SFP slots.
Antaira also offers switches with M12 connectors such as the LNX-0500-M12-67. In industrial machinery and factory automation, M12 connectors are ideal where a compact, reliable connection with environmental protection is required. The Antaira LNX-0500-M12-67 features five M12 ports. With an operating temperature of -40° to 75° C, it may be used in some of the harshest industrial environments. It is compliant with UL 61010-1 and 61010-2-201 and IP-67 rated. The LNP-0800G-M12-67-24 model is similar to the LNX-0500-M12-67. However, it features 8 Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports and it accepts 24 VDC power input.
Westward Sales also offers Ethernet extenders, PoE splitters, and PoE injectors. The CopperLink 2110 from Patton Electronics is an industrial-grade PoE extender and injector used to connect PoE devices to an existing non-PoE network. It also extends the cable run beyond the Ethernet limit of 300 m. The LNP-201AG-T PoE injector eliminates the need to run a separate power cable to cameras, wireless access points, fire alarms, and other PoE enabled electronics. All of these products offer power isolation and current overload protection and they output 15.4 W (per IEEE 802.3af) to a PoE enabled device
Whether it’s a new industrial or outdoor project or an upgrade to the current infrastructure, Antaira Technologies has the solution you need. Contact a knowledgeable representative at Westward Sales today to learn more.
