ComNet, Communication Networks of Danbury, Connecticut, an ACRE company, and a USA-based manufacturer of fiber optic transmission and networking equipment, is expanding its media converter line by introducing a new series of intelligent media converters. These new models provide additional benefits over traditional distance extending fiber optic media converters. These intelligent media converters add the capability redundancy by offering two SFP fiber ports that allow for redundant upload paths and a MUX feature for port isolation preventing network video flooding of multicast traffic Multiplexing feature for port isolation that prevents network video flooding of multicast traffic redundant.

The ComNet CNGEMC4+2[POE][HO]/M is a four-port intelligent Media Converter. It has four 10/100/1000Base-T(X) copper ports and two 100/1000Base-FX SFP ports. The CNGEMC4+2[POE] [HO]/M provides exclusive functionality for easy field deployment including DIP switch-based operation of RSFP (redundant SFP) for creating redundant fiber connections. Optional PoE models will be available for the RJ45 ports, meeting the IEE802.3 af/at standard.

By adding features such as redundant SFP ports, we are offering our customers another way of making their network more reliable and immune from network path interruptions. This keeps us front and center in terms of innovation.”

The company believes that these features give them a more competitive position in the market and allows ComNet to be unique and differentiate the product line.

DEHNventil ACI M: Standard-compliant Surge Protection in Industry

High demands are placed on the availability of switchgear in, for example, industrial plants, data centres, hospitals and large administrative buildings. This makes surge protection essential. At the same time, replacement of the surge protection module should not influence system availability. The new DEHNventil ACI M TNS 264 FM has no backup fuse and is flexible in terms of its application. In the event of a fault, the protection module is safely disconnected and can be quickly removed from the base part from either side or the front. The touch-safe design allows the protection module to be replaced without system downtime. The ACI technology employed also enables connection cross-sections of just 16 mm2. This facilitates installation and saves time.
