Reliable Industrial Ethernet Networks Overview
Our Industrial networking switches are designed to deliver high performance and reliable solutions in fields such as automation, railway transmission, power substation and so on. The products have passed strict tests and are certified to UL60950-1 safety standard, railway traffic EN50121-4 & EN50155 and EN61000-6-2 & EN61000-6-4 standards. With wide operating temperatures, IP30 rugged housing and redundant wide range power input features, our industrial networking devices are able to provide uninterrupted and stable services for mission-critical projects especially those carried out in harsh environments. Confidence in our products is reflected in the 5-Year warranty we offer on all our industrial networking products to our customers.
Our industrial networking products are UL listed and certified. UL-certified products are intended to reduce risks of electric shocks, fire, energy related hazards, heat related hazards, mechanical hazards, radiation, and chemical hazards for operator, layman or service personnel.
Our industrial networking products are certified to the EN61000-6-2 & EN61000-6-4 Immunity & Emission for Heavy Industrial Environment Applications and EMS (Electromagnetic Susceptibility Protection) for surge, EFT, ESD requirements and so on.
For Railway, Buses and Moving Machine Applications our industrial networking products are certified to the EN50155 standard that meets the EMC Electromagnetic compatibility standard) requirements and EMS (Electromagnetic Susceptibility Protection) for surge, EFT, ESD requirements and so on. The devices can also withstand environmental disturbances including vibration and shock variations.
For Trackside and Railway Applications our industrial networking products are certified to the EN50121-4 EMC (Electromagnetic compatibility standard) for emission and immunity and EMS (Electromagnetic Susceptibility Protection) for surge, EFT, ESD requirements and so on.
For Power Substation Applications our industrial networking products are certified to the IEC 61850-3 standard that meets the EMC (Electromagnetic compatibility standard) requirements and EMS (Electromagnetic Susceptibility Protection) for surge, EFT, ESD requirements and so on.
Other than the proprietary u-Ring redundancy protocol, standard ring redundancy protocols such as ITU G.8032, IEEE 802.1W RSTP and IEEE 802.1s MSTP are also supported. Among standard redundancy protocols, ITU G.8032 achieves the fastest recovery time (<50ms) than others. Users can choose the most suitable ring redundancy protocol based on their actual networking needs.
IEEE 1588v2 PTP (Precision Time Protocol) feature is supported which provides timestamp for receive and transmit frames to synchronize clocks in a network. Our IEEE 1588v2 PTP-enabled products support a hierarchical master-slave structure for clock distribution and each port provides Master, Slave, and Ordinary mode. Through continuous message exchanges between the master and slave clock, our products can achieve synchronization accuracy in sub-microsecond range.
Before our industrial networking products are delivered to customers, they will have undergone reliability tests that meet rigorous standards and various strict quality checks. Our products use specially-chosen parts such as industrial-grade IC, PCB, transformers, screws and specially-installed methods for heatsink have been approved to achieve high MTBF values. EMC and EMS certificates we receive are further proof that our products can function stably and safely even in harsh environments. To demonstrate our confidence in our products, we offer a 5-Year warranty on all our industrial networking products to customers.
IEEE 802.3az EEE (Energy Efficient Ethernet) is intended to reduce power consumption during periods of low data activity. Our industrial networking products that comply with IEEE 802.3az standard can reduce consumption in two ways. One is to reduce power usage when ports are in idle state. The other is to reduce power usage according to cable length meaning that the shorter the cable length, the less power it consumes. Both ways can save power consumption and achieve the goal of energy efficiency without affecting the entire network.
The Cable Diagnostics feature is useful to troubleshoot Ethernet cabling problems especially for Ethernet cables buried or hidden underground. The diagnostic results reveal cable states (shorts or open connections), the length of cable and distances to the faults. When a cabling problem has been detected, an appropriate recovery action can be taken according to information (the pairs of the cable and the location of the fault) obtained without interrupting the rest of the unaffected network.
Rugged & Fanless Design. Our industrial networking products are all fanless and protected in a rugged metal housing to endure extreme and rapidly changing conditions such as shock, vibration, moisture, etc. They can also operate at standard (-10°C~60°C) and wide (-40°C~75°C) operating temperature ranges, making them suitable for harsh environments like railways, roads, factories, warehouses, docks, parking lots, electrical poles and so on.
Waterproof & Anti-vibration. Our ITP series is EN50155 compliant and provides solutions for rugged and long life usage in industrial and harsh environments. When exposed in outdoor, offshore or railways environments, the ITP series, equipped with M12 connectors, is able to withstand vibration, shock, extreme temperature, and humidity. In addition, our EN50155 compliant switches are IP67 rated to protect against dust, oil and submission in water and to meet the most rigorous standards for extreme temperature, vibration, shock, humidity and others. The ITP products with M12 connectors and IP67 rating are purpose-built for automotive, manufacturing, oil, gas, mining and other industrial environments, requiring no extra housing protection.
