These models are managed industrial grade Gigabit PoE (Power over Ethernet) switches that provide 4/8/16x GbE UTP plus 2/3/8 GbE SFP with 4/8x PoE Ports. The PoE features enable power and data to be transferred via a single cable, thereby considerably reducing cabling and electrical wiring expenses. With dual power input design, these models can provide redundant mechanisms for critical applications that need always-on connections. These switches can also operate either at standard operating temperature range (-10 to 60°C) or at wide operating temperature range (-40 to 75°C) so as to fulfill the special needs of industrial automation applications. Housed in rugged DIN rail or wall mountable IP-30 enclosures, these switches are perfect choices for harsh environments, such as telecom network, industrial network, intelligent transportation systems (ITS) and are also suitable for many military and utility market applications where environmental conditions exceed commercial product specifications.
These managed switches also support a wide variety of Ethernet functions, including STP/RSTP/MSTP/ ITΜ-T G.8032 ERPS and multiple µ-Ring for redundant cabling, advanced PoE management functions such as weekly PoE power scheduling as well as device auto-checking and auto-reset. They also support layer 2 Ethernet IGMP, VLAN, QoS, Security, IPv6, bandwidth control, port mirroring, cable diagnostics and Green Ethernet. Additionally, these switches can also be managed by CTC Union''s SmartView™ Element Management System which offers a user-friendly and centralized device management platform and provides network administrators the ability to monitor and configure these connected switches remotely.
