Targeting railway industry, Korenix offers a wide range of ruggedized managed and unmanaged rack and DIN rail mountable switch solutions with innovative rail-specific technologies and various railway certification approvals, including the EN 50121-4 Railway EMC standard of emission and immunity and IEC 61373 for Railway vibration and shock resistance to best fit on-board, trackside or rolling stock applications.
Korenix models pass and even exceed all the requirements imposed by the Railway standards due to the combination of the leading-edge ruggedized hardware and most intelligent software parameters with pioneer technologies specifically designed to optimize railway operation.
The switches that have recently been approved for both the EN 50121-4 Railway EMC and IEC 61373 Vibration / Shock standards are:
• JetNet 2006-RJ / 2006-M12 - Rugged RJ45 / M12 Unmanaged Switch;
• JetNet 6710G-RJ/ 6710G-M12 - Managed 8+2 Gigabit 802.3at PoE Switch;
• JetNet 6810G-RJ/ 6810G-M12 - Managed 8+2 Gigabit 24V Booster PoE Switch;
• JetNet 4508 V2 / 4508f V2 - Managed 8-port Fast Ethernet / Fiber Switch.
The key features provided by Korenix to enhance railway network infrastructures are:
• Stable Railway Network Connection through Ruggedized Design
Korenix offers solutions designed with solid RJ45 and M12 connectors for providing robust and stable data transmission under constant vibration and shock that is commonly the case in trackside or on-board railway applications. In addition, they provide rugged fanless enclosure with excellent electromagnetic susceptibility (EMS) to endure the operation under heavy-duty environments. Designed with extremely low (up to -40) and high (up to 80oC) temperature ranges, they can function without interruption in railways under freezing or over heating climatic conditions.
• Extended Flexible Networking through Rich Interface Connections
In addition to their robustness, Korenix offers devices with various interface connections and port densities, including 4, 5… and up to 24 copper/fiber Fast Ethernet ports and gigabit uplink ports to most appropriately fit in your specific railway automation system.
• Booster PoE and High Power PoE for Cost-Efficient in-Vehicle surveillance
Korenix also adds value to its networking solutions by providing IEEE 802.3af PoE and IEEE 802.3at High Power PoE ports for high-end surveillance in railways. It also offers switches with own exclusive built-in Booster PoE technology, which automatically converts 12 or 24V power to 48VDC standard PoE, making Korenix switches best solutions for on-board railway applications while minimizing system costs.
• Mobile Expansion for Wireless transmission
To ensure remote train-to-ground transmission, Korenix also provides Embedded Computers with mobile expansion slots (miniPCIe and SIM slots) that ensure wireless data transmission via GSM/GPRS/3G/3.5G/HSUPA.
• High Performance and Efficient Real-time Management of Railway system
For simple data transmission capability, Korenix offers entry-level solutions with plug & play design that can perform connectivity and data transfer once they are switched on.
To enhance the railway automation system with more complex networks and improve network quality, Korenix also offers advanced software functions in its managed models, including IGMP snooping, QoS data prioritization, VLAN/Private VLAN, DHCP option 82 etc…, as well as LLDP and SNMP, JetView Pro NMS designed for ensuring remote monitoring, device control, transmitted data security and reliability.
In addition, Korenix also offers MSR and MSTP/RSTP for scalable network redundancy as well as complete Layer 3 routing for extended network group management.
