Robust Features for Industrial Ethernet Networks with Plug and Play Configuration
Designed for heavy industrial demanding environments, PLANET’s new IFGS-1822TF comes with high-density 16 10/100BASE-TX ports, 2 additional Gigabit copper/SFP combo interfaces and redundant power system. Though it includes robust features designed for industrial Ethernet networks, its Plug and Play makes configuration easy. With the IP30-rated rugged but compact-sized case, it can operate stably under the temperature range from -40 to 75 degrees C and can be installed in any difficult environment without space limitation.
Two Gigabit Uplink Ports
The IFGS-1822TF provides two extra Gigabit TP/SFP combo interfaces that enable the network administrators to increase their network bandwidth to relieve traffic congestion when the two 10/100/1000BASE-T uplink ports are used to connect devices, such as NVR, video streaming server, NAS and more. With the combo design, the administrators can easily connect network devices no matter how large the network expansion is.
Flexibility and Long-distance Extension Solution
Through the two shared Gigabit-speed fiber SFP slots, it can also connect with the 1000BASE-SX/LX SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) fiber transceiver to uplink to backbone switch and monitoring center in long distance. The distance can be extended from 550 meters (multi-mode fiber) to 120 kilometers (single-mode fiber or WDM fiber). They are well suited for applications within the industrial data centers and distributions.
Environmentally Hardened Design
The IFGS-1822TF possesses an integrated power supply source with a wide range of voltages (12 to 48V DC or 24V AC) for worldwide high availability applications requiring dual or backup power inputs. It also provides a high level of immunity against electromagnetic interference and heavy electrical surges which are usually found on plant floors or in the curbside traffic control cabinets.
The IFGS-1822TF provides a contact discharge of ±6KV DC and air discharge of ±6KV DC for Ethernet ESD protection. It also supports ±6KV surge immunity to improve product stability and protects users’ networks from devastating ESD attacks, making sure the flow of operation does not fluctuate.
The IFGS-1822TF, integrated with advanced green networking technologies and IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) protocol based power saving, is able to provide power savings of up to 50% but maintain high performance efficiently.
- Link Down power savings
The Link Down power savings goes beyond IEEE specifications to automatically lower power consumption for a given port when it is not linked. With the Link Down power saving technology, the IFGS-1822TF will automatically adjust power usage of the ports that are shut down or not connected to network device.
- Intelligent power scale based on cable length
Intelligent power scale is an intelligent algorithm that actively determines the appropriate power level based on cable length. When the IFGS-1822TF is connected with Ethernet cable shorter than 20m, a device can obtain maximum power savings because the IFGS-1822TF would automatically detect the Ethernet cable length and diminish power usage. The connected device can substantially reduce the overall power consumption, which makes a significant contribution to energy savings.
