At ISC West 2017, Vigitron will introduce the first series of Hybrid managed network switches designed for security applications. The new MaxiiNet™ Hybrid series adds to the existing managed switch product line to further address the needs of security systems.
MaxiiNet™ Hybrid series
The Hybrid series combines Extended Distance UTP, Coax, single pair wire, and Fibre with standard UTP/PoE ports, providing complete solutions for security transmission into a single 1U high package. PoE up to 36W addresses the requirements of the connected device start-up and accessory functions such as day/night, reducing potentials for port shutdowns that render connected devices from going offline. The PoE outputs from two ports can be combined to provide power to devices requiring more than 30W such as the 60W PTZ domes.
The new series also includes a low cost, high-PoE switch and an unique Layer 3 core fibre switch. This new series not only focuses on the need for every increasing PoE, but also providing a 685W power supply to provide a 550W PoE budget. Each will be able to provide up to 36W with all ports operational. PoE port power can be combined for powering 60W PTZ domes with heaters and blowers.
“This new network switch product series addresses the needs of security users by focusing on simplifying network setup and operation, while providing the power and management required for PoE,” stated Neil Heller, Vigitron’s Vice President. “In addition to PoE management,” Heller continued, “operation and monitoring can be achieved by the switch’s easy to use Graphical User Interface. The latter prevents hacking by isolating the device’s IP address. Finally, by combining network switching, PoE Midspan management, and extenders in one package, a significant cost and space saving is achieved.”
