EN 50121-4 Certified IEEE 802.3at Industrial PoE+ Ethernet Switch for Railway Trackside Applications

California, U.S.A., December 2017 – Ethernet Direct Corporation, a professional and primary provider of industrial networking and communication solutions introduces CUG-600GEAT, an EN 50121-4 certified industrial 6-port full Gigabit unmanaged Power over Ethernet switch which supports IEEE 802.3at PoE+ especially designed for railway trackside applications.

Modern rail systems deploy IP CCTV, signaling, power distribution and data transfer via Ethernet technology. Fiber-optic cabling is used based on a transmission distance.

The Ethernet network in railway track side is made easy by installing industrial Ethernet switches capable of operating at wide temperature with robust industrial design for outdoor installations. One remarkable feature of Ethernet Direct CUG-600GEAT is the built-in high efficiency power booster design to boost PoE output voltage and regulated PoE output voltage (55VDC) to stabilize the PoE device. The excellent product design guarantees delivery of PoE power distance up to 100 meters. Each CUG-600GEAT is installed at regular intervals into trackside enclosures, buildings and substations and fibre-optic cables spliced and terminated at each location. The switch is designed with wide range redundant power input 24/48VDC and supports reverse polarity protection, overload current protection and alarm relay contact for added safety. CUG-600GEAT is EN 50121-4 Certified to provide reliability and the most ideal solution required for trackside installations.
