Top performance for industrial applications - the new 10G Profi Line Rack switch from MICROSENS

The euromicron subsidiary MICROSENS expands its range of robust and high-availability switches. The new fanless switch comes into use wherever there is an increased demand for connection along with the highest requirements for reliability, and where the use of mechanical fans is not possible.

With its 28 ports, the new flagship of MICROSENS industrial switches is suitable both for the cabling of larger units in industrial environments and for in-house aplications. With the scalable and broadband connection, it offers top performance and maximum availability of the applications. The tough design enables reliable operation in the temperature range from -40 to +75°C.

Its application options range from the control cabinet at the roadside through to the raised floor in the office area. As an active consolidation point, it forms the cost-effective network structures for open-plan offices based on the MICROSENS Fiber To The Office concept. The new switch is also an ideal solution for control stations, in surveillance applications, or training facilities.

Robust design and convenient handling
The switch has a robust and compact metal chassis. The low installation depth allows it to be placed into the control cabinet, in the suspended ceiling, or the raised floor for easy access. All connections are located on the front panel to facilitate cabling. The 19-inch switch is a particularly interesting solution for small distribution units.

Fanless and extremely reliable
The Profi Line rack switch was designed for the greatest availability and shortest recovery times. Network redundancies can be established both via the SFP ports and the copper ports. In the event of failure, a special ring redundancy mechanism detects a fault on a network node or interruption of the line and ensures the automatic reconfiguration of the network within milliseconds. Furthermore, monitoring via secure management protocols is possible.

The new Profi Line rack has 24x 10/100/1000T copper ports that also support PoE/PoE+. The maximum switch output power is 420 W. As an uplink, there are four dual speed 10G/1G SFP+ and SFP connections available. The fiber optic connection is made via special transceivers with an extended temperature range.

Transmitting information via fiber optic connections offers numerous benefits. MICROSENS GmbH & Co. KG recognised this very early on. As one of the pioneers, the company has developed and produced high-performance communications and transmission systems in Germany since 1993. Individually matched to the demands of diverse usage areas and embedded in comprehensive concepts for individual sectors. But, above all, close to the customer. Technical challenges from customer projects are incorporated directly into product development. This way, IP-based automation solutions are created for modern buildings, cost-efficient network concepts for the office and workspace, robust and fail-safe solutions for industrial environments, optical transport systems future-oriented wide area networks and efficient coupling of sites and computer centres.
