Leinfelden-Echterdingen, October 10th, 2017 – Kyland Technology, a leading industrial communication solution provider, will present at SPS IPC Drives (Hall 10, Booth 220) with Aquam 8112, 8120, 8128 and Aquam 8612, 8620, 8628 two new series with a total of six managed IP65 switches. All had been specifically designed for train networks, but can also be deployed in other applications in harsh environmental conditions. Since the devices of the 86xx series support routing, both subnets can be formed and coupled with each other. The switches have four Gigabit uplinks (10/100/1000 BASE-TX) and eight, 16 or 24 Fast Ethernet ports (10/100 BASE-TX) with M12 technology. Terminal devices can be powered with PoE/PoE+ via data lines. Different redundancy protocols and security mechanisms ensure high-availability and secure data communication. A passive bypass function guarantees that networks remain functional even at multiple points of failure. Further features of the switches, which can be put into operation according to the plug-and-play principle, include high shock and vibration resistance, almost complete insensitivity to electromagnetic interference and a temperature range of -40 ° C to + 70 ° C.

The switches, that meet several industrial approvals like EN 50155 and EN 45545, have a metal housing which is intended for wall mounting. The dimensions are between 189 x 270 x 91.3 mm and 189 x 380 x 91.3 mm, depending on the device version. The weight varies from 3.5 kg to 5 kg. On the front are LEDs, which show the device and network status as well as the status of the power supply. The integrated power supply, which is designed for an input voltage of 24 VDC to 110 VDC, provides up to 120 W for PoE/PoE + (IEEE 803.2af, IEEE 802.3at). This power can be increased to 240 W by means of an electrically isolated external power supply, which is available separately.

Diagnosis is possible via an internal hardware self-test, different IP/MAC conflict alarms and Syslog. Routing functions include TTDP, Static Routing, Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), and Routing Information Protocol (RIP). Redundancy methods comprise Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP), Distributed Redundancy Protocol (DRP), and Media Redundancy Protocol (MRP). The security mechanisms enable for example access control according to IEEE 802.1x, Secure Shell (SSH), and authentication via Radius servers.
