The EKI-6311G 802.11 b/g wireless access point, client bridge, and repeater offers standards-based and license-free wireless connectivity for industrial devices, equipment, and applications. It supports multiple operating modes. As an access point, it allows wireless devices to communicate with each other and with 10/100Base-TX Ethernet wired networks. For applications where a wireless extension cord is needed, Client Bridge operation connects one or more wired devices to a wireless network. While combining both of these modes, the unit operates as a wireless repeater to extend wireless coverage areas. The IP65-rated EKI-6311G can be used for applications ranging from indoor plant/factory locations to outdoor use. A single conduit connection is required for external power and wired network connections. The unit supports enterprise standards like WPA2 (WiFi Protected Access 2) and 802.1x remote authentication for secure wireless communications and to ensure that only authorized users and devices are permitted access, and is also SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) manageable.

Audio/video extenders

Lynx CAT Extenders Series of video baluns is cascadable, allowing users to connect multiple units in succession. The Lynx Series can transfer audio and video signals over Category 5 cable from source to display, or units can be daisy-chained for deployments in excess of 300 displays. The Lynx Series is available in Component, Composite, VGA, and HDMI models, with multiple units for each video format. These video extenders are designed to transfer signal past the limits of straight cable—up to 300 feet with no signal degradation.

Data center heat containment system

This adaptive enclosure heat containment (AEHC) system for data centers is designed to ensure the entire room is normalized with cold air, with no oversupply of cooling. A pressure reading made by a sensor inside the enclosure plenum modulates the rotational speed of the fans in the two cartridges mounted atop the enclosure. The company says the speed is varied so that the fans pull out the correct amount of air from the enclosure and send it back to the air conditioner return via a ceiling plenum. The AEHS system is designed to completely separate the hot and cold side of operations, making the room “normalized” with cool air that never mixes with exhaust heat from the enclosure. The company says that with its heat containment system, the physical position of the CRAC unit and its proximity to the enclosures are no longer a concern. Cool air can be fed to the computer room via a raised floor or an overhead duct. The AEHC system is designed to increase the temperature differential between the inlet and outlet temperatures of the CRAC unit. With no mixing of hot and cold air, the manufacturer says it is possible to raise the temperature of the cooling air supplied to enclosures to be closer to the ASHRAE- recommended upper limit.

Indoor/outdoor network cameras

Modular indoor- and outdoor-ready P33 network cameras are designed to provide high performance video, including HDTV image quality and multiple H.264 streams. These fixed dome cameras support Power over Ethernet (PoE), and come in six models ranging from standard indoor to vandal-resistant outdoor units designed to operate in temperature ranges of -40º to 131º F. The P33 Series uses progressive scan technology, resulting in video quality in 30 frames per second in full resolution. P3343 network cameras offer SVGA resolution, whereas the P3344 models offer 1 megapixel or HDTV 720p in compliance with the SMPTE standard in resolution, color representation, and frame rate (30 fps). These network cameras support wide dynamic range and day/night functionality, and provide multiple, indivi- dually configurable video streams in H.264 compression, designed to optimize bandwidth and storage without compromising image quality. Motion JPEG is also supported. In addition, the remote zoom feature is designed to ensure that the viewing angle is optimized at installation for the scene and required pixel resolution.

Industrial connector housings

Industrial Connector Housing (ICH) and Industrial Splice Housing (ISH) families are designed as all-optical, tip-to-tip solutions for manufacturing and indus- trial applications. The ICH family is designed to accommodate conduit with either concentric knockouts (standard version) or rubber grommets (upgraded version), and both options accept standard LANscape Solutions connector panels and connector modules. Splicing is accomplished with the splice tray holding kit (ordered separately). The units have a padlock-capable outer door and a separate inner door that protects the provider side of the unit from unauthorized access. The inner door may also be locked by using an optional key lock. The standard ICH is IEC IP64-rated, while the upgraded ICH is IP66, IP67 and IP69K-rated, with a baked-on silver-gray powder-coat finish. The ISH family is wall-mountable for transition splicing between cable at the building entrance or pigtail splicing, and is designed to provide storage and protection of fiber splices in individually accessible trays. The units have a padlock-capable outer door. The ISH is designed to accommodate conduit fittings with the provided plugs and reduction washer kit, and it accepts standard LANscape Solutions splice trays.

Monitored PDU

The 14.4kVA Monitored PDU connects to a 50-amp (40-amp usable), 3-phase circuit using a Hubbell CS8365C connector. This power distribution unit has a single input and twelve C19 outputs for connecting to a variety of devices, such as servers, storage, networking, and other infrastructure equipment. The PDU takes 3-phase input power and provides single-phase power to equipment. The unit lets administrators and facility personnel monitor current draw directly at the rack and at the PDU. A local power display lets users set up and configure the PDU, and monitor the PDU power for RMS current, status, and overload conditions. The PDU chassis includes two serial ports—one for local set-up and configuration and one for attachment of the optional remote management module. The local user interface consists of a basic control panel that includes a two-digit 7-segment display, a recessed reset button, a scroll/invert button, and six segment-dedicated LEDs. An optional PDU management module provides remote monitoring capabilities; it can be configured to send e-mail alerts and alert traps to SNMP management programs to monitor up to two PDUs through the network connector or serial connector located on the front of the management module.

Vertical, horizontal PDUs

The P1070 Series includes five new vertical surge-protected PDUs, all listed to the UL 1449 2.5 standard, and featuring a clamping voltage rating of 400 volts and a peak surge current rating of 18 kA. These PDUs provide circuit breaker protection and have LED indicators for power, surge protection, and grounding/polarity. They are available for 120-volt input voltage in 15 and 20 amp configurations. Also, 4500 Series PDUs mount horizontally on 19-inch racks or cabinets in a 1U space. New features include a rocker-style on/off switch, front and rear-facing receptacles, and additional plug configurations. The 4500 Series features a resettable circuit breaker and is available for 120-volt input voltage in 15 or 20 amp configurations, and with 7, 10, or 15-foot input cord lengths.
