Duxbury Networking has launched a solar network switch with tailored capabilities for applications in less-accessible areas. The switch was designed to cater for remote locations where electricity is not freely available.
The decision for the company to develop its own range of switches was motivated by a gap in the market for more affordable switches with high-level capabilities. As Tobie van Schalkwyk, business development manager at Duxbury Networking, explains, “Our switches offer some of the best features available, at a fraction of the cost of our competitors. The Duxbury range will expand to meet the need for specialised, value-added products as well as the volume distribution of its market-leading offerings.”
The device is ideal for locations like mines, construction sites, game farms, forestry, solar and wind farms, and mission-critical installations where load shedding is frequent. As an example, it offers unique capabilities for anti-poaching operations, as it can be used to power surveillance setups in remote locations.
The DUX106SPS is a 6-port unmanaged Gigabit PoE switch that offers 5 Gigabit PoE ports and 1 SFP port. The switch supports various PoE (Power over Ethernet) outputs on each port with a total budget of 75 W, suitable for IEEE802.3af/at compatible powered devices (PDs). The switch is designed from industrial-strength material with low power usage and a fan-less design. The working temperature supports -20°C to 65°C, making it ideal for various harsh environments.
Input support is either 12 V or 24 V from solar panels, batteries (lead-acid or lithium) and normal AC/DC power supplies. It is designed to offer low power consumption and has industrial components with a 100% ageing test. There is no fan to ensure a mute design with a cooling hole on the side. These features make the switch stable and reliable in harsh environments.
With plug-and-play capabilities, users can easily understand the working status of the device through power indicator (PWR), port status indicator (Link/POE), battery status indicator and system status indicator (CPU).
