Westermo has launched its PMI-110-F2G, a Layer 2 industrial managed Ethernet switch with Power over Ethernet (PoE) and Gigabit capabilities. The company says the PMI-110-F2G is especially developed for surveillance applications in environments such as industrial automation, machine building and building automation, where cost savings can be delivered when power cabling is made unnecessary by PoE. The device incorporates advanced network management, security protocols and resilience features.

With a compact, robust design, no moving parts, an operating temperature range from -40°C to + 70°C and compliancy with industrial EMC requirements, Westermo says its PMI switch is especially suitable for mounting into industrial cabinets in tough industrial and outdoor applications. In these locations the robust DIN rail mounting clip and the compact size makes the installation simple and fast, which contributes to easier maintenance and reduced cost in the long term.

The PMI-110-F2G has 8 PoE/PoE+ ports each capable of delivering 30W of power , which enables the PMI-110-F2G to be used for powering both standard cameras as well as end devices with higher power needs, such as PTZ cameras, wireless access points and WiMax systems. The PoE function includes advanced features like smart power budget control, end device status monitoring and calendar based on/off scheduling.

In addition to the 8 PoE/PoE+ ports the PMI is equipped with 2 Gigabit RJ45/SFP combo uplink ports to provide a flexible high speed uplink for con­nection to backbone switches, which enables high data rate video streams over long distances. Westermo contends that the design and features of the PMI-110-F2G makes it perfectly suited for critical applications such as real-time camera surveillance networks, where equipment needs to guarantee high performance at all times.
