Microsens offers a new series of products for industrial networking in a particularly compact design. The Entry Line compact series includes copper/fiber optic media converters, switches, and Power-over-Ethernet injectors and splitters. All of them merely cover the surface area of a modern smartphone and can be directly assembled on the DIN rail or via a mounting bracket on the wall. Due to their robust design in a stable metal casing, these devices are particularly suited for the application in rough industrial environments. A further feature of the products of the new series is the extended working temperature range between -40 and +70 degrees centigrade. The products can be put into operation very simply. An additional configuration of the components is not required. The SFP ports, which are provided both by Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet media converters, offer a particular flexibility for fiber optic connections. The Fast Ethernet media converter 10/100TX to 100FX with SFP port is additionally available as a variant with PoE+ according to IEEE802.3at. This standard ensures a maximum feed of the connected end devices per copper port of up to 30 watts. In addition to the media converters, Microsens also offers a 5-port Fast Ethernet Switch 10/100Base-TX. The Entry Line compact series is rounded off by a 2-port power injector for Gigabit Ethernet.
