The ToughNet TN-5500A Series M12 managed Ethernet switches are designed for railway applications, such as rolling stock, and wayside installations. The TN-5500A Series switches use M12 and other circular connectors to ensure tight, robust connections, and guarantee reliable operation against environmental disturbances, such as vibration and shock. The TN-5500A Series Ethernet switches provide 8 or 16 Fast Ethernet M12 ports with or without 8 IEEE 802.3at/af compliant PoE (Power-over-Ethernet) ports, and 2 ports on the down side to provide the Gigabit Ethernet interface with an optional bypass relay function. The PoE switches are classified as power source equipment (PSE) and provide up to 30 watts of power per port, and can be used to power IEEE 802.3at/af compliant powered devices (PDs), such as IP surveillance, wireless access points, and IP phones.
The TN-5500A Series provides a wide power input range of 24/36/48/72/96/110 VDC that allows you to use the same type of power source at different sites around the globe. In addition, the 24 to 110 VDC wide power input range and isolated power increases the reliability of your communications system. In addition, the -40 to 75°C operating temperature and IP54 rated waterproof enclosure allow deployment in harsh environments. TN-5500A Series Ethernet switches are compliant with mandatory sections of EN 50155, covering operating temperature, power input voltage, surge, ESD, and vibration, as well as conformal coating and power insulation, making the switches suitable for a variety of industrial applications.
