Antaira Technologies (Brea, CA) announced the expansion of its industrial networking infrastructure series with the introduction of the LNP-0500G-bt series switches, optimized for harsh environment applications. Antaira says the new LNP-0500G-bt and LNP-0500G-bt-24 switches fulfill the need for low port-count Power over Ethernet (PoE) gigabit connectivity in industrial applications.
Both the LNP-0500G-bt and LNP-0500G-bt-24 models are 5-port industrial 802.3.bt PoE, gigabit unmanaged Ethernet switches, with 48 to 55VDC high voltage power input (LNP-0500G-bt) and a 12 to 55VDC wide voltage power input (LNP-0500G-bt-24). Each unit is designed with five gigabit Ethernet ports that are IEEE 802.3af/at/bt compliant on four of the ports (data and power output maximum 90W/port).
The LNP-0500G-bt Ethernet switch is billed as rugged, reliable and geared for applications that require up to 90 watts of PoE power. Targeting the automation and transportation segments, the manufacturer says its LNP-0500G-bt-24 provides the same high power PoE, but with a wider range of input voltage powering the switch.
Antaira says the product series provides high EFT, surge (2,000 VDC), and ESD (6,000VDC) protection to prevent any unregulated voltage, and support power redundancy via a dual-power input design with reverse polarity protection. The series supports MDI/MDI-X functions and 10Kbytes jumbo frames, making it ideal for applications with high power requirements using PoE, notes the manufacturer. A built-in relay warning function alerts maintainers when power failures occur.
