Westermo introduces Layer 2 industrial Ethernet switch with 8 PoE/PoE+ ports
The PMI-110-F2G is designed 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.
Westermo now offers a Layer 2 industrial managed Ethernet switch with Power over Ethernet (PoE) and Gigabit capability. The PMI-110-F2G Series is equipped with 8 ports that are all compliant with both IEEE 802.3af (max 15.4 W) and IEEE 802.3at (max 30W). Because each PoE/PoE+ port is capable of delivering 30 W, the PMI-110-F2G Layer 2 industrial managed Ethernet switch is well suited to power standard cameras as well as PTZ cameras, wireless access points, and WiMax systems.
The PoE functionality includes advanced features such as smart power budget control, end device status monitoring, and calendar based on/off scheduling. Two Gigabit RJ45/SFP combo uplink ports provide flexible high-speed uplink for connection to backbone switches, which enables high data rate video streams over long distances. In addition, digital diagnostic monitoring (DDM) is supported for monitoring of fiber links.
The device guarantees quality and reliability by incorporating advanced network management, security protocols and resilience features. The unit is designed for DIN rail mounting into industrial cabinets. Features like redundant power supply and digital I/O make the PMI-110-F2G well prepared for serving in most automation solutions.
With a compact and robust design, no moving parts, an operating temperature range from -40°C to + 70°C and compliancy with industrial EMC requirements, the PMI is 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 design and features of the PMI-110-F2G Series makes it perfectly suited for critical applications such as real time camera surveillance networks, where equipment needs to guarantee high performance at all times.
The PMI-110-F2G supports advanced network features like redundant multi ring technology, rapid dual homing, link aggregation, RSTP, VLAN, IGMP Snooping, QoS etc. Management and configuration through ease of use web interface, CLI or SNMP. Security is obtained through SSH and HTTPS login, DHCP binding, access table, port security and much more.
