D-Link DIS Series industrial gigabit switches with Long Reach PoE
D-Link A/NZ has launched its DIS Series of industrial gigabit switches consisting of the unmanaged DIS-F100G Series and the Layer 2 Smart Managed DIS-F200G Series, both with Long Reach PoE support. Built from the ground up for durability, the switches offer a complete solution for demanding indoor and outdoor industrial network applications, including factory automation, warehousing, intelligent transportation systems including automated carpark facilities, and wherever harsh environmental conditions exist.
To accommodate such deployments, the switches are housed in a durable, industrial-grade enclosure with IP40 ingress protection. Their fanless, energy-efficient design and robust housing enable operation in harsh environments with wide operating temperatures. The series provides cold start capability in environments with temperatures as low as -40°C with full-load operation at up to 75°C.
D-Link designed the series with hardened components to withstand environments with high electromagnetic interference (EMI) that would damage ordinary enterprise devices. All switches in the series also support dual power inputs to provide power redundancy, so the connected networks keep running in the event of a power failure.
The series features models that support IEEE 802.3at PoE+ to deliver up to 30 W of power per port to connected PoE devices with a total PoE power budget of 120 or 240 W. These models dynamically allocate power to connected PoE devices, such as IP phones, wireless access points, surveillance cameras and other standard PoE devices efficiently.
The DIS-F100G and DIS-F200G Series also offer Long Reach PoE technology, allowing the use of longer network cable runs which are normally limited to 100 m. The technology supports cables up to 250 m long.
Importantly for devices with usage criteria that may include exposure to outdoor applications, the RJ-45 Ethernet ports on the series feature embedded 6 kV surge protection. This helps protect the switches against sudden electrical surges caused by events such as lightning strikes or unstable electrical currents. Built-in surge protection reduces the chances of equipment being damaged by these surges and minimises the need for equipment repairs or replacement.
The DIS-F200G Series also features carrier-grade RUN-Ring technology with 10–20 ms recovery for high-speed metro Ethernet ring resilience. In addition, support for loop detection and cable diagnostics for network troubleshooting and maintenance provide ongoing network access for non-stop service.
