SPS IPC Drives Hall 9, 401 Stand
EKS angel presents the compact "E-light 4G" family. It consists of four robust Gigabit switches that support Gigabit Ethernet and are only 30 mm wide. In addition to a device with eight electrical ports (10/100/1000 BASE-TX), three versions with additional optical ports (1000 BASE-FX) are available, which are available in combinations of 8TX / 2FX and 4TX / 2FX and 6TX / 2FX with slots for SFP modules (Small Form-factor Pluggable) are available.
Single- and multi-mode transceivers allow transmission distances of up to 100 km. With DIP switches, alarms can be activated for all ports, which can be signaled via LEDs and interrogated via a fault relay contact. Switches with other configuration or management functions that can be accessed via a web-based user interface are available on request.
The four Gigabit switches can be used in a temperature range from -40 ° to +70 ° C and meet all relevant EMC standards. Its sturdy stainless steel housing measures 155 x 30 x 101 mm. Due to the slim design, the devices take up little space, and with extremely flat installation spaces, the DIN rail clip can also be mounted on the side of the switches. A panel is optionally available for installation in 19 '' racks.
The optical versions support the Bidi technology, with which data can be transmitted over one fiber in two directions via the SC plug. Furthermore, variants with E2000 connection technology are also available. The electrical ports have sockets for RJ45 plugs.
The redundant power supply is designed for 12 to 60 VDC. Their status, as well as the status of the network connection and the port alarms, are indicated by LEDs on the front panel of the switches.
