Suitable for Industrial Environment
PLANET IGS-5227-6MT-X, an Industrial Layer 2+ Managed Ethernet Switch, comes with an IP67-rated industrial case, 6-port 10/100/1000T and static Layer 3 routing, providing a high level of immunity against electromagnetic interference and heavy electrical surges which are usually found on plant floors or in curb-side traffic control cabinets. The IGS-5227-6MT-X can be easily mounted on a DIN-rail or wall taking up less space.
Waterproof and Dustproof M12 Ethernet Connector
The IGS-5227-6MT-X is equipped with a 6-port 10/100/1000BASE-T, auto-negotiation, waterproof and dustproof M12 connector. The M12 connector provides tight and strong connection, and guarantees stable Ethernet operation performance under high vibration and shock environment. It comes with the industrial protection rating of IP67 capable of withstanding humidity, dirt, dust, shock, vibrations, heat and cold.
Environmentally Hardened Design
The IGS-5227-6MT-X is able to protect itself from dust and water ingress, and to operate under the temperature range from -40 to 75 degrees C. All these features ensure the highest level of reliability for mission-critical applications in any difficult environment.
Dual Power Input for High Availability Network System
The IGS-5227-6MT-X features a strong dual power input system (Dual 9V~48V DC) incorporated into customer’s automation network to enhance system reliability and uptime. For example, when DC Power 1 fails to work, the hardware failover function will be activated automatically to keep powering the IGS-5227-6MT-X via DC Power 2 alternatively without any loss of operation.
Redundant Ring, Fast Recovery for Critical Network Applications
The IGS-5227-6MT-X supports redundant ring technology and features strong, rapid self-recovery capability to prevent interruptions and external intrusions. It incorporates advanced ITU-T G.8032 ERPS (Ethernet Ring Protection Switching) technology, Spanning Tree Protocol (802.1s MSTP), and redundant power input system into customer’s industrial automation network to enhance system reliability and uptime in harsh factory environments. In a certain simple Ring network, the recovery time of data link can be as fast as 20ms.
SMTP/SNMP Trap Event Alert
Though most NVR or camera management software offers SMTP email alert function, the IGS-5227-6MT-X further provides event alert function to help to diagnose the abnormal device owing to whether or not there is a break of the network connection.
IPv6/IPv4 Dual Stack
Supporting both IPv6 and IPv4 protocols, the IGS-5227-6MT-X helps data centers, campuses, telecoms, and more to experience the IPv6 era with the lowest investment as its network facilities need not be replaced or overhauled if the IPv6 FTTx edge network is set up.
Layer 3 IPv4 and IPv6 VLAN Routing for Secure and Flexible Management
The IGS-5227-6MT-X not only provides ultra high transmission performance, and excellent Layer 2 and Layer 4 technologies, but also Layer 3 IPv4/IPv6 VLAN routing feature which allows to cross over different VLANs and different IP addresses for the purpose of having a highly-secure, flexibly-managed and simple networking application.
Robust Layer 2 Features
The IGS-5227-6MT-X can be programmed for advanced switch management functions such as dynamic port link aggregation, Q-in-Q VLAN, private VLAN, Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP), Layer 2 to Layer 4 QoS, bandwidth control and IGMP/MLD Snooping. Via the link aggregation of supporting ports, the IGS-5227-6MT-X allows the operation of a high-speed trunk to combine with multiple fiber ports and supports fail-over as well.
The IGS-5227-6MT-X offers a comprehensive Layer 2 to Layer 4 Access Control List (ACL) for enforcing security to the edge. It can be used to restrict network access by denying packets based on source and destination IP address, TCP/UDP ports or defined typical network applications. Its protection mechanism also comprises 802.1X port-based and MAC-based user, and device authentication. With the private VLAN function, communication between edge ports can be prevented to ensure user privacy. The IGS-5227-6MT-X also provides DHCP Snooping, IP Source Guard and Dynamic ARP Inspection functions to prevent IP snooping from attack and discard ARP packets with invalid MAC address. The network administrators can now construct highly-secure corporate networks with considerably less time and effort than before.
Excellent Traffic Control
The IGS-5227-6MT-X is loaded with powerful traffic management and QoS features to enhance connection services by telecoms and ISPs. The QoS features include wire-speed Layer 4 traffic classifiers and bandwidth limit that are particularly useful for multi-tenant units, multi-business units, Telco and network service providers’ applications. It also empowers the industrial environment to take full advantage of the limited network resources and guarantees the best performance in VoIP and video conferencing transmission.
Efficient and Secure Management
With built-in Web-based management interface, the IGS-5227-6MT-X L2+ Managed Switch offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility which includes Web and SNMP management interfaces. The SNMP can be managed via any management software based on the standard of SNMP Protocol. For reducing product learning time, it offers Cisco-like command via Telnet and customer does not need to learn new console command. Moreover, it also offers secure remote management by supporting SSH, SSL and SNMP v3 connections which encrypt the packet content at each session.
1588 Time Protocol for Industrial Computing Networks
The IGS-5227 series is ideal for telecom and Carrier Ethernet applications, supporting MEF service delivery and timing over packet solutions for IEEE 1588 and synchronous Ethernet.
Modbus TCP provides Flexible Network Connectivity for Factory Automation
With the supported Modbus TCP/IP protocol, the IGS-5227 series can easily integrate with SCADA systems, HMI systems and other data acquisition systems in factory floors. It enables administrators to remotely monitor the industrial Ethernet switch’s operating information, port information and communication status, thus easily achieving enhanced monitoring and maintenance of the entire factory.
