L-com, an Infinite Electronics brand, has introduced a new series of PoE+ 802.3at-compliant Industrial Ethernet switches with 10/100, 10/100/1000 RJ45 ports and 1000FX small form factor pluggable (SFP) ports to address harsh environment networking applications.
The company's new Industrial Ethernet Switch (IES) series is comprised of three models that feature either one or two SFP ports that support high-speed fiber-optic connections as well as 10/100 and 10/100/1000 RJ45 ports.
These switches also support PoE+, IEEE 802.3at applications providing both power and data to end devices over a single Ethernet cable. They are also fully backwards compatible with IEEE 802.3af standards.
All models feature, full or half-duplex mode support with auto-detect, auto-MDI/MDI-X ports, easy-to-read status LEDs, an IP40-rated aluminum alloy heat-sink shell and a fan-less design which helps to extend mean time between failure (MTBF).
Further, these rugged, unmanaged Ethernet switches boast an operating temperature of -40°C to +85°C and can be mounted to a 35mm DIN rail.
"These latest additions to our IES-series product line offer flexibility and versatility by supporting both 1000 Base-FX SPF ports and 10/100 or 10/100/100 TX RJ45 ports, to address myriad industrial Ethernet network applications. Also, by adding PoE capability, these switches are able to feed both power and data to end devices where no power outlets are available," concludes Dustin Guttadauro, product line manager for L-com.
L-com's new IES-series Industrial Ethernet switches with SFP ports and 802.3at support are now in stock and available for immediate shipment.
