Challenging environments are the natural environments for Actelis Networks' new ML680Dx family of hardened industrial Ethernet switches.
Actelis says that the ML680Dx industrial Ethernet devices offer a combination of features making it the most cost-effective solution available. An eight-port Ethernet switch includes two fibre interfaces for connectivity to multiple Ethernet devices, such as camera and sensors, per location.
The ML680Dx products provide high bandwidth, market-leading reliability and extremely small form factor.
Flexible topologies, such as fast-healing rings and drop-and-continue, are supported to meet the demands of intelligent traffic systems, surveillance, municipal applications and other verticals.
The design is full-front access, compact, hardened and fan-less. A unit is mountable almost anywhere – DIN rail or rack mounted. The result is more high-performance Ethernet bandwidth available at more places easily, quickly and cost effectively, says the company.
An extender over bonded copper or fibre provides cost-effective transportation of high-speed Ethernet traffic further into the network. It allows up to 60Mbps over bonded copper and 1Gbps over fibre.
