Building Automation

Industrial reliability for commercial applications

Over the last ten years Industrial Ethernet has become the standard within automation solutions found in factories, process plants, transportation systems and infrastructure projects. More recently Ethernet has started to be utilised in alarm, CCTV surveillance and building automation systems.

Although standard IT equipment could be used for these types of solution more and more companies are seeing the benefit of using industrial Ethernet equipment for these applications. Although initially the price might be higher in the longer term the cost of using industrial equipment will be lower. Industrial Ethernet equipment is optimised for extreme environmental conditions and is designed for longer life cycles and provides functions like high speed network reconfiguration in the event of cable damage.

Ethernet solutions for building automation and CCTV applications

The i-line family of Ethernet products is a product range optimized for machine building, building automation, factory automation and CCTV surveillance applications. The range encompasses unmanaged Ethernet switches, fibre media converters and Power over Ethernet (PoE) switches. Whether you need to link up a network of IP cameras or create a redundant ring, the i-line range ensures resilient communications.

Industry line

The i-line family of industrial Ethernet products are aimed specifically for applications in environments such as factories, process plants, transportation systems, infrastructure projects, alarm, CCTV surveillance and building automation systems. The i-line range includes standard and compact unmanaged Ethernet switches, managed Ethernet Switches with advanced ring technology, media converters and Power over Ethernet (PoE) switches.

All devices within the i-line range feature industry grade components, easy-to-use features, and reliable and consistent operation. The DIN rail mountable and rugged IP-31 rated aluminium alloy enclosure is ideal for heat dissipation and enables a wide operating temperature range without the need for moving parts.

Building Automation Solution Networks

In today’s society there is an increasing requirement for our buildings to become more efficient, more reliable and more secure. To achieve this advanced building automation systems are being developed which require effective and reliable data communications solutions. Intelligent systems controlling air conditioning, thermal regulation, power consumption and surveillance can result in significant cost saving as well as benefiting the environment.
