EtherWAN announced the release of a new model, EX47026, from the EX47000 family, a Hardened DIN-mountable unmanaged Ethernet Switch supporting full wire speed throughput at 100Mbps, provides sophisticated fiber optic connectivity as many as 6 ports with SC or ST connectors.
Designed for industrial applications, the EX47026 supports operating temperature ranging from -40°C to 75°C, high ESD/EMI protection and redundant power inputs , alarms for relay output for notification when power failure or port link down occurs. The EX47026 is housed with ruggedized aluminum enclosure supporting DIN-rail or panel mounting.
Compliant to IEC61850-3, IEEE1613 and EN50121-4 standards, the EX47026 is suitable for network communications at electric utility or wayside network connectivity. For example, the EX47026 is applicable for network distributions in wind farms where fiber optics is the preferred media for data transmissions of wind turbines. EtherWAN’s EX47026 Ethernet switch is equipped with 6 fiber optic ports and 2 copper ports, which is the ideal option to connect the wind turbine into the topology. The EX47026 can also join a redundant chain network to guarantee the best network availability.
The EX47000 Series supports 100BASE fiber optic cables ranging from different transmission distances and wavelengths. By implementing the fiber optic network in wind farms, data communications can be carried to miles away while EMI/EMS are all well taken care of from the EX47000 series engineering design.
