6K16V Managed fibre Switches provide modularity of fibre and copper ports, 10Mb 100Mb and Gigabit speed ports, and comprehensive management software in a compact industrial-grade package. Setting a new standard for Industrial and Carrier Class applications, heavy duty Ethernet Switch jobs are readily accommodated with an extended temperature rating of -40°C to 60°C by the UL Component Parts method, or -50°C to 95°C by the IEC 60068 Type Test method. With options such as all popular DC power input types, worldwide AC power, and DIN-Rail mounting, the hardened 6K16V is a “go-anywhere do-anything” Industrial Ethernet Switch. The large family of port modules offer the choice of all fibre media (all connector types, multi- and single-mode) and 10/100 Mb autonegotiating RJ-45 ports. Standard GBIC ports can be configured for a variety of Gigabit cabling types and distances.
High performance features include non-blocking speed on all ports and 802.1p QoS Traffic Prioritisation. 6K16Vs are “plug-and-play” ready for use as backbone switches where a mix of bursty data traffic and priority streaming traffic for VoIP and audio/video applications is present.
6K16V fibre Switches are provided with LAN management software including SNMP, Tag- and Port-based VLANs, IGMP Snooping and Port Security, control via command line interface. For high availability LAN's using ring topologies, Spanning Tree Protocol, Link-Loss- Learn™ and S-Ring™ are available. See the Managed Networks Software (MNS-6K) and S-Ring datasheets for additional details on the comprehensive set of software programs and options.
Designed for use in transportation and traffic control systems, power utilities, industrial factory-floor jobs, and video surveillance systems with segments requiring Gigabit backbone interconnections, the 6K16V is easy to install and operate. The next generation of industrial applications will need advanced managed network software, operation at extended temperatures, fibre ports modularity, support for self-healing ring structures, and gigabit backbone configurability. The 6K16V has all of these, and is available now.
6K16V Managed fibre Switches have heavy duty metal cases and auto-ranging power supplies for operation with standard AC power worldwide. Internal DC power supplies are optional. The 6K16V's and all other products are designed and manufactured in the USA and backed by a three year warranty.
