Powerful features to ensure fast and accurate set-up include auto crossover, auto polarity and auto negotiation, with LED indicators to show the status of link, 10/100 Mb, activity and PoE. All of these functions as well as temperature feedback and cable integrity can be accessed and controlled remotely over the network. The unit is auto-power sensing for ease of use on the road.
The NS12PF Groundswitch is a 12 input / 12 output Ethernet Switch base station, with 2 fiber optic connection and Power over Ethernet (PoE). The unit is housed in a rugged 1U-high 19" rackmount case, fitted with Neutrick EtherCon/RJ45 connectors for optimum reliability.
When the fiber optic ports of multiple NS12PF Groundswitches are connected together, these will automatically engage a Redundant Fiber Optic Link. This acts as a fast recovery system in case a connector is unplugged or a cable is damaged. Within microseconds all communication will be rerouted, without any loss of signal.
