KBC Networks, the manufacturer of industrial transmission equipment for IP and high definition systems, has added 24 Ethernet switches to its industrial networking range. All new models have been designed using globally recognised components to meet the diverse, rugged networking requirements of critical infrastructure, the company says.
The new Power over Ethernet (PoE) and Non-PoE hardened switches provide extended operating temperatures ranges for non-conditioned and outdoor applications and are IP40 rated. These new units are IEEE 802.3af and higher powered, IEEE 802.3at compliant, which are suitable for most pan and tilt CCTV cameras, according to the firm. DIN mount design provides mounting and removal. These switches are for high resolution 4K video and managing high traffic jumbo frames. The GUI allows for set-up and system maintenance.
John Crockett, CEO of KBC Networks said: “Customers require reliable, purpose-built Ethernet switches with sophisticated features at a competitive price. We can now offer our customers a wider range of cost-effective, reliable and high-performance switches in a rugged, compact enclosure.”
The switch types include a range of fixed RJ45, SFP and combo ports (10/100 and Gigabit) which are MDI/MDIX compliant for automatic configuration. As for maintenance, the switches feature dual redundant power inputs as well as power failure alarm outputs and ERPS ring topology. The units have operating temperature ranges of between minus 40 and +75 degrees C whereby no fans or forced-air cooling is required. Visit www.KBCNetworks.com.
