Active switch systems for communication and monitoring

  • Active switch systems for communication and monitoringSmall and rugged switch systems
  • They contain up to 3 fiber optic uplink ports and 8 copper ports for multiple applications via just one fiber.
  • They are able to supply connected devices (IP cameras and phones, WLAN access points) with PoE,
  • The switch system comes with a fiber optic and copper cable diagnostic monitoring function.

A memory card allows non-IT maintenance personnel to replace and reconfigure the switches. 

These cables are part of our Windlink® solutions designed by Nexans to respond the very demanding expectations of the wind turbine market.

Industrial and Special Applications

Fields of application include the control of wind turbines, the networking of transformer substations, remote monitoring of power meters (e.g. automatic metering), and security (e.g. video surveillance at airports, hotels, hospitals, schools, etc). Traffic management applications and the control of machines are just a few further examples of the diverse applications of the Nexans iSwitch systems.

Ethernet interfaces from 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps up to 1000 Mbps Ethernet are supported. The iSwitch allows to adapt the interfaces to the application by using the corresponding pluggable modules (Fast Ethernet or Gigabit SFP). It is designed for a wide input voltage and operating temperature range (-40°C up to +85 °C). This underlines the economic efficiency and the flexibility of the Nexans industrial series.
