Allied Telesis has announced the release of the IE200 Series of industrial Ethernet switches. Available in both Fast Ethernet and Gigabit versions, the IE200 Series is ideal for applications in challenging environmental conditions such as elevator engine rooms and external or harsh environments.
As organisations strive to improve the availability of services and utilisation of resources, there are an ever-increasing number of devices and sensors that are being used to gather information to enable smarter decisions to be made. This includes real-time information about environmental conditions and resource usage within a building or information about transportation and pedestrian movement in the surrounding area. Regardless of what the information is, many of these devices and sensors are located in environments that are not the typical office environment. And due to the volume of data being generated, wireless connectivity is simply not an option.
The Allied Telesis IE200 Series has been developed to support a broad range of critical infrastructure applications and environments where a highly reliable, feature-rich solution is required. The IE200 Series is available in 6- or 12-port models, with or without Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) support, and includes a broad range of features and functionality. Both models are DIN Rail mounted, resulting in reduced space, mounting complexity, and cost when compared to a standard rack.
According to Seiichiro Sato, Allied Telesis director of global product marketing, “The IE200 Series extends our existing range of products and provides a single vendor for an organisation’s enterprise and industrial connectivity solutions. It’s the perfect choice for IP video surveillance, intelligent transport, and other embedded applications where the environment can be challenging, or in high-density resilient wiring closet applications where reliability and simplified management are essential. Allied Telesis is committed to reducing the cost and complexity of networking, and the IE200 Series achieves this with an extensive range of features such as EPSRing and AMF.”
