The RuggedNet GHPoE/Mi is an industrial ruggedized and temperature-hardened Ethernet switch that features one or two 1000BASE-X Gigabit fiber ports and four 10/100/1000BASE-T RJ-45 Power Sourcing Power-over-Ethernet ports. The GHPoE/Mi provides PoE, PoE+, and HPoE (60W) per RJ-45 port for outdoor pan-tilt-zoom cameras with heaters and blowers, and multi-stream wireless access points. The RuggedNet switch enables industrial network distance extension with fiber cabling and provides full HPoE power simultaneously to all RJ-45 ports.

The GHPoE/Mi functions can be configured using easily accessible DIP-switches or using Web, Telnet or Serial Console management interfaces. The IP-based web and Telnet management can be accessed through any of the Ethernet RJ-45 or fiber ports and facilitates the configuration and real-time operation monitoring of each port.

The RuggedNet GHPoE/Mi is a Layer 2 Ethernet switch that can be configured in Directed Switch mode. As a Layer 2 Ethernet switch, frames are forwarded to any port based on their MAC address. In Directed Switch mode, multicast traffic (such as video) is directed only to the appropriate fiber port, preventing the flooding of copper ports.

Models with two fiber ports support Dual Device Mode that enables the GHPoE/Mi to operate as two independent and isolated switches. Models with two fiber ports also support redundant fiber uplinks for critical applications that require protection and sub-50ms restoration in the event of a fiber failure. The second fiber port may also be used to daisy-chain multiple RuggedNet PoE fiber switches, or it may be used as another switch port.

The RuggedNet GHPoE/Mi is available with fixed ST, SC, and LC connectors or Small Form Pluggable (SFP) transceivers. Fiber ports support multimode or single-mode and dual fiber or single-fiber with distances up to 140 km. SFPs support a variety of distances in standard and CWDM wavelengths.

The GHPoE/Mi automatically negotiates and delivers the power level required by its Powered Device (PD) partner. When negotiating to PoE (IEEE 802.3af) it delivers up to 15.4 Watts per RJ-45 port. When negotiating to PoE+ (IEEE 802.3at) it delivers up to 30 Watts per RJ-45 port. When negotiating to HPoE it delivers up to 60 Watts per port. To support powered devices that require more than 30 Watts, each port can be configured to be forced to deliver up to 60 Watts of power.

The GHPoE/Mi features a remote PoE power reset function that can be configured with a DIP-switch or via management. This feature allows all PDs or individual PDs to be power-cycled and reset remotely to save time and expense by eliminating the need to dispatch manpower to remote network sites.

The compact RuggedNet Ethernet switches can be DIN-rail mounted using the included DIN-rail mounting clip. They are available with single or dual DC input power options. Two contact-closure alarm relays are available to detect user configured events. Relay contacts can be configured for normally open or normally closed operation. One alarm input is available for detecting external events such as door open or closed.

Daisy Chain Application

In this industrial manufacturing application example, RuggedNet GHPoE/Mi HPoE fiber switches are deployed along an assembly line. Gigabit fiber is distributed from a fiber switch at a network hub location to RuggedNet GHPoE/Mi HPoE switches with dual fiber ports that enable a fiber daisy chain with multiple locations. Each RuggedNet GHPoE/Mi provides fiber data connectivity and up to 60 Watts HPoE power for IP cameras and Wi-Fi access points at each location.

 GHPoE Mi Industrial Manufacturing Application


PoE Switch Directed Switch Mode GPoE+Mi

Directed Switch Mode

In some networks, video cameras broadcast a single multicast video stream to the entire network, and the video stream is received by all of the destinations. This multicast video can cause port flooding on other network devices (including other cameras, printers and workstations). To avoid this, multicast traffic is routed only to ports where the destination devices are connected.

The GHPoE/Mi can be configured to operate in Directed Switch Mode, which directs video traffic only to the uplink fiber port, as shown in the diagram below, preventing the multicast video traffic from flooding other network ports.


GHPoE Mi Dual Device Mode

Dual Device Mode

For secure applications requiring two separate network domains over fiber runs to the same location and independent connectivity to the Powered Devices, the GHPoE/Mi can be configured in Dual Device Mode.

The GHPoE/Mi provides separate and independent data traffic paths between the two fiber links and four RJ-45 ports. In the example below, the green lines represents one independent domain and the purple lines represent the other independent domain.

 RuggedNet Web Interface.jpg

The IP-based web management provides easy access to all the features of the GHPoE/Mi using any standard web browser. 

IP-based web management provides remote management of the GHPoE/Mi compact PoE fiber switches, and provides the ability to remotely monitor status and configure hardware/software parameters.

The management software provides intuitive and easy-to-navigate menu options for Status and Configuration screens.
