Building on their reputation as the premier manufacturer of IP video and fibre optic communication and control solutions, American Fibertek Inc. (AFI) introduced a host of new IP and fibre transmission solutions at ASIS 2012. The new hardware includes additions to the AFI line of Ethernet switches, transceivers, multiplexers and other network communications devices.
“Expanding our lineup of IP and fibre transmission solutions enables us to reach out to a wider market with cost effective, innovative products,” said Jack Fernandes, President and CEO of AFI. “With purpose-built design and functionality, the new hardware offers smart solutions for today’s sophisticated video and audio surveillance and security systems.”
MX6p / MX6p-POE Series / MXB-6p-PoE – Six port Ethernet switches with four copper triple (10/100/1000) speed ports and two SFP gig ports. Available in module or rack format, the switches will also support PoE on the copper ports.
CX-6p-PoE – Six port Ethernet switch with four copper (10/100) speed ports and two SFP gig ports. Available in module/ rack format, the CX-6p-PoE has alarm and auxiliary i/os, supports afi environmental and power monitoring probes and can communicate via TCP/IP and e-mail/SMS messaging. The CX-6p-PoE will also support PoE of or at on the copper ports.
9/10/24 Port SM Series – An expanded series of low cost Ethernet switches for managed and un-managed applications that can be PoE and non-PoE, with pluggable uplink ports for total network connectivity. Full network connectivity with the availability of PoE, SFP and all gigabit ports for all switch applications.
Ethernet Network Communication
Net I/O N-TAH – A cost effective environmental monitoring device, the N-TAH communicates with AFI Pilot and other Video Management Solutions to monitor the temperature, humidity and airflow of network installations and other critical processes such as food and drug storage facilities. The N-TAH can also e-mail responsible individuals and communicate to other AFI hardware devices.
Fibre Optic USB & Intercom Transceivers
AFI Series USB 2.0 – Allows any USB 2.0 device to be transmitted through a fibre cable network. The system is available in module format for field use or rack card for control rooms and is compatible with multimode or single mode optics.
AFI Series 89C-GE – Provides a completely transparent interface to allow Commend GE Series Intercom hardware to be fully integrated to a multimode or single mode cable infrastructure. Available as either a module or rack card, the system will seamlessly provide all the functions of the GE Series Intercoms on a single or dual optical fibre.
AFI Series 89A-IS – This completely new transceiver enables seamless transparent interface between the Aiphone IP intercom and a multimode or single mode fibre optic network.
Fibre Optic Video Multiplexers
91600-UTP / 91685-UTP Series – Sixteen channel video multiplexer with active UTP RJ45 I/O rather than conventional BNC connections. The system is designed to reduce the interconnections required when integrating UTP active baluns with a fibre optic cable system. Available as either multimode or single mode products, the series is an expansion of the popular AFI 908-UTP concept.
Fibre Optic Audio Multiplexers
9088 / 9088SL Series – An eight channel audio multiplexer providing CD-quality 24-bit audio on a single optical fibre. Offering complete transparency, the systems can be integrated with the proven AFI multi-channel (16-56) video systems or used standalone when audio only is required. Available in multimode or single mode configuration.
Fibre Optic Video/Audio Multiplexers
988 / 988SL Series – Provides eight channel video/audio on a single multimode or single mode fibre. Delivers broadcast quality video and high quality 24-bit audio with capability for transparent, seamless integration into any system architecture.
