High speed, efficient networks are fast becoming a necessity for Industrial factory automation, rail transportation, power generation, oil and gas development, and health care delivery systems across the world. These are all areas that can just as quickly be up to speed locally provided there is a stable fibre network. One of the essential tools for a stable fibre network is the PLANET IGS-624HPT Industrial Gigabit 802.3at PoE+ Switch. It is designed for harsh environments and will perform optimally under difficult conditions.
The PLANET Netwoking IGS-624HPT Industrial Gigabit Switch provides non-blocking wire-speed performance and great flexibility for Gigabit Ethernet extension. It offers 4-port 10/100/1000Base-T copper with 802.3af/at PoE injector and 2 extra 100/1000Base-X SFP fibre optic interfaces.
Some of the other product features include:
Power over Ethernet
Layer 2 Features
The unit is housed in an IP30 Industrial rugged, sturdy case. It has a DIN Rail and Wall Mount Design, 24~48V DC redundant power with polarity reverse protect function and removable terminal block for master and slave power. It supports 6000 VDC Ethernet ESD protection. The IGS-624HPT Industrial Switch is well suited for applications in deploying surveillance systems and securing control and wireless service in climatically demanding environments with wide temperature ranges from -40 to 75 degrees Celsius.
