Dust-Proof/Waterproof Network Switch Introduced by Parvus with -40 to +85C Extended Temperature Operation for Mobile, Tactical, Vehicle, and/or Outdoor Applications
Amaro, ITALY, 15 December 2011
– Eurotech subsidiary Parvus Corporation announces the DuraNET 10-10
, a rugged low-cost IP67 Ethernet switch targeting homeland defense applications, such as border security, disaster recovery, first responder vehicles, drug enforcement and other civilian mobile, tactical and/or outdoor applications subjected to extreme temperatures, shock, vibration, dust, rain, and/or physical impact.
Leveraging Parvus’ engineering heritage with rugged IP networking products for military vehicle and aerospace platforms, the DuraNET 10-10
, is a lower-cost alternative geared towards civilian defense and mobile tactical / critical infrastructure applications. Without sacrificing reliability or performance, the product boasts a dust- and water-proof design with IP67 environmental protection that will appeal to more cost-sensitive commercial user applications that may not require MIL-STD compliance.
Featuring a robust mechanical design and extended temperature operation from -40ºC to +85ºC (-40ºF to +185ºF), the DuraNET 10-10 network switch provides five 10/100 plug-and-play Ethernet ports over rugged field deployable RJ-45 or M12 connectors in a sealed and fanless metal chassis designed for mounting to any machine or flat surface. With provisions for exposure to wide thermal ranges, shock, vibration, dust particles, and liquid immersion, the rugged DuraNET 10-10 combines proven and open-architecture PC104 Ethernet switch and vehicle-grade power supply components in a rugged package designed for maximum reliability under extreme conditions, including provisions for hazardous locations and potentially explosive atmospheres.
As an unmanaged Ethernet switch, the DuraNET 10-10 is designed to provide local area network (LAN) connectivity to IP-enabled equipment, such as onboard computers, cameras, sensors, monitoring devices, and command-and-control gear for situation awareness and information sharing. Requiring no configuration to operate, the device features five IEEE 802.3/u compliant (10/100mpbs) Ethernet transceiver ports and support for auto-MDI-MDIX network installation. Any of its five transceiver ports are flexibly designed to serve as an uplink. Support for auto-crossover, auto-polarity, auto-negotiation, and bridge loop prevention are all integrated. A non-blocking switching fabric provides excellent data transmission performance at wire speed.
