Gigabit SwitchSPS hall 9, booth 401

EKS angel presents the new managed gigabit switch "E-Light-4G-M", which was developed especially for industrial and building automation, intelligent transport systems and smart city applications. Since it is only 30 mm wide, this switch, which supports Profinet and is prepared for TSN, enables a high packing density in the control cabinet and thus reduces operating costs.

It has eight electrical ports (10 / 100 / 1000-Base-TX) and two optical uplinks (1000-Base-FX) for singlemode or multimode fibers that can carry data over distances of up to 100 km. Redundancy procedures such as MRP and RSTP ensure fast network reconfiguration. The software works with all browsers and operating systems, from Linux to Windows to Apple and Android. This allows the switch to be managed both via PC and smartphone and tablet. The diagnostic functions can be linked to alarms that are displayed via SNMP, e-mail or relay.

The gigabit switch with protection class IP40, designed for a temperature range of -70 ° to +20 ° C, has a redundant power supply (12-60 VDC) and meets all relevant EMC standards. The robust metal housing for DIN rail mounting measures 155 x 30 x 102 mm. The electrical ports have sockets for RJ45 plugs. The optical uplinks support the Bidi technology, with which data can be transmitted in two directions via just one fiber via SC connectors. There are also variants with ST, and E2000 connection technology.

The gigabit switch can be managed via SNMP and a web interface. Thanks to a self-explanatory user interface, which is similar to operating concepts from the consumer goods sector, it can be easily configured and monitored without special IT knowledge. The parameters that can be evaluated include the status of the ports, the temperature of the device and its power supply or the status of the fiber optic links. Interfaces for USB sticks and SD cards are available for data backup and software updates.
