Korenix Technology has announced a new generation of 8-port fast Ethernet switches that feature an upgraded design targeted at severe industrial applications.
The JetNet 3008 8-port Fast Ethernet Copper and JetNet 3008f 6-port Fast Ethernet Copper plus 2-port Fast Ethernet Fiber switches are fully compliant with heavy industrial EMC standards - IEC/ EN 61000-6-4 and IEC/ EN 61000-6-2 and the testing severity standards with excellent level-3 or level-4 performances.
They have also been designed to provide a wider power input range - dual 10~60VDC and up to -40~75ºC operating temperature.
As they feature compliance with heavy industry and severity testing standards, these new Ethernet switches are ideal for use in factory automation and outdoor applications, easily dealing with unfavourable environmental conditions such as:
- poor power quality
- severe operating temperature changes; and
- critical electromagnetic interference (e.g. radio frequency interference in production line with power motor or robotics system).
In addition, the lower power consumption and wide power input / temperature ranges makes these switches suitable for stable, long term operation in outdoor traffic control applications.
