Managed PoE+ Switches

L2+ Managed 8 x 10/100/1000 PoE+ Switch, Aluminum


Volktek’s IEN-8608PA Managed Industrial switch is equipped with 8 port 10/100/1000Base-T that are PoE+ compliant. Engineered with hardened components and enclosed in a rugged case, the switch can perate in wide temperatures from -40°C to 75°C and also has an excellent tolerance capability to high vibration and shock. As an Industrial switch, the IEN-8608PA suits your heavy industrial environments and yet contains all the standard features of other switches.

Robust Switch Performance 
IEN-8608PA is built with IP30 aluminum case protection, surge and ESD protection to deliver robust performance and withstand extreme conditions in Industrial environments. In case of any abnormal hardware condition, the switch automatically sends warnings through email and relay output with real-time alarm messages. This assists the system administrators to immediately react to emergency events and diagnose the faults more efficiently for smoother network operations.

High-Power Budget for PoE Network Devices 
To reduce the required time and cost of installing additional electrical sources, the IEN-8608PA implements PoE plus technology. The switch supplies power over the same cable that is used to carry network traffic and delivers a high power budget (30W per port) to suit various power requirements. Using SNMP and Web interface, the PoE+ functions on each port can be enabled and disabled to save power and energy.

Intelligent PoE+ for Powered Devices 
The IEN-8608PA is designed with intelligent PoE+ features to utilize power more efficiently. To monitor real-time status of PDs, the switch sends alive-checking packets to PDs. This reduces management burden and increases system reliability. Using power scheduling mechanism of the switch, administrators can set power on each port to a desired hourly/weekly schedule and can enable or disable the power output to these devices accordingly.

Redundant Power System 
Mission-critical industrial applications need to operate without any interruptions because even a minimum network downtime can hugely impact the overall output. Providing continuous power and as well as data to such applications is now made easy with IEN-8608PA redundant power system. The switch is designed with standard industrial terminal block for redundant power. In case the primary power supply fails, the secondary power will enable the switch to provide continuous service.

Efficient network monitoring and proactive capability 
In a network, the issues that impact network performance can be quickly resolved with the INS-8608P’s most accepted and enhanced traffic management, monitoring and analysis protocols such as SNMP and RMON. SNMP allows end users to centrally manage different levels in a network and RMON gives the capability to monitor the network performance. Administrator can ensure a reliable network by identifying connectivity and performance issues and isolating the problem remotely on individual switches. This avoids high OPEX and provides administrators the control they need to manage a healthy and efficient network.

Bandwidth management to prevent unpredictable network status 
Industrial applications need different levels of services delivered to them reliably without any transmission delays and interruptions. The IEN-8608PA has comprehensive QoS mechanisms which assign priority to applications and sends only specific dedicated traffic to them. In addition, bandwidth management function of the switch allocates high bandwidths to mission-critical communications and reduce the bandwidth to applications that are less critical. With full control of limiting the bandwidth, the administrators can prevent unpredictable errors and utilize the bandwidth more effectively.

Redundant Ring and Fast Recovery for Surveillance System 
Even few seconds of missed communications due to link failures, especially in IP surveillance systems, can cause inconvenience and recovering it becomes very critical. The IEN-8608PA Xpress Ring rapidly reacts to such link failures and recovers it within less than 10ms, a much faster fail-over time to support nonstop transmissions. And to handle the heavy traffic load of video and data, the switch implements.
