New MACH104-L3P switches from Hirschmann™

Cost-effective alternative for Layer 3 applications with high data rates

Webpic_MACH104-L3P.jpgThe workgroup switches in our new MACH104-L3P series are a cost-effective alternative for Layer 3 applications with high data rates, such as video surveillance or IP telephony. They combine switching with extensive routing functions and feature a kettle lead power plug. They also support Gigabit speeds, various redundancy methods, Power-over-Ethernet Plus (PoE+) and Precision Time Protocol (PTPv2). Finally, they come with the Hirschmann industry-proven standard of high quality.

The workgroup switches can be rapidly put into operation via plug and play, and allow you to address specific data packets in or across subnetworks. They can also be used to cost-effectively power or accurately synchronize your terminal equipment via the data line. Redundancy methods such as MRP, HIPER Ring and RSTP guarantee smooth data communication. And last but not least, the switches are only one rack unit high (1U) and tolerate temperatures from 0°C to +50°C, so they can be installed in control cabinets without the need for powerful cooling systems.

The MACH104-L3P switches provide flexible and cost effective solutions in numerous industries. They can be used, for example, in transport applications to network traffic lights and emergency telephones, to transmit video and audio signals such as announcements and alerts, or control smoke extraction systems. Another example is office communication, where they can be used to efficiently connect a large number of devices to the network – including PCs, printers, and WLAN access points.The new workgroup switches provide static, dynamic and even multicast routing, and have 16 or 20 TX ports. A total of nine different versions are available, six of which support PoE+. There are also variants with two optical 10 Gigabit uplinks, fanless cooling, redundant power supply and non-heating appliance power plug, or an external power supply.

Models are characterized by a robust design that can withstand shock, vibration, magnetic fields and electrostatic discharges. Additional features include extensive management and redundancy methods, as well as various configuration and diagnostic functions. A USB interface enables you to connect the ACA 21 autoconfiguration adapter and hence save all your configuration data as well as conveniently upgrade or downgrade the workgroup switches’ operating system.
