Ditek Networks has launched a new line of Gigabit Power over Ethernet (PoE+) network switches designed for industrial applications. The products in this new line, which includes both 4-port and 8-port models, are built with a metal case and feature a fanless design that reportedly delivers a high PoE power budget. This new line gives IT professionals and security integrators a new choice for powered networks ideal for demanding environments.
“In sharp contrast to most business and office settings, industrial environments can be a real challenge for network equipment,” said Michael Molinari, Director of Marketing for Ditek. “We introduced this new line of Gigabit PoE+ Switches to meet these challenges head-on. They have the rugged strength, extreme temperature tolerance, high power output, and quiet, dust-resistant operation that would make them the ideal choice for these demanding applications.”
The two new models are the DTK-SW4IND 4-Port Gigabit Ethernet PoE+ Industrial Switch and the DTK-SW8IND 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet PoE+ Industrial Switch. Both models support up to 30W of power per port while delivering network speeds of up to 1Gbps. Total PoE Budget for the 4-port model is 120W, and total PoE Budget for the 8-port model is 240W.
The new switches offer IP40-rated metal cases and a fanless design. They also both have a -40 to 75 degrees Celcius operating temperature range. Both models feature 10/100/1000Mbps autosensing ports that automatically detect optimal network speeds as well as two pluggable GBIC module slots (SFP).
The new models are designed for PoE Network devices, as well as Wireless Access Points and IP Video Cameras. Both models come with an included DIN-rail mounting bracket, and require a separate DC industrial power supply (not included).
