EtherWAN Systems Releases the ER52000 Series Hardened Unmanaged PoE Switch for Rolling Stock

EtherWAN Systems, Inc. has released the ER52000 series, an unmanaged PoE switch for railway applications. Specifically designed for PoE connectivity on rolling stock, the ER52000 is compliant with EN50155 and EN50121-3 international standards, accommodating the prerequisites including temperature, humidity, shock, vibration, and other parameters for rolling stock in railway applications.

EtherWAN’s ER52000 provides 8 10/100BASE PoE ports and 2 Gigabit uplink ports. All 10 ports are built with robust M12 connectors with the vibration resistance and protection level required in harsh railway environments. Thanks to the wall mount design, the ER52000 can be easily installed on a flat surface on rolling stock.

With 72 to 110VDC power input range, the ER52000’s PoE ports supports IEEE802.3at standard delivering PoE up to 30 watts per port with a total power budget of 120W. Users are able to use a single M12 data cable to power up a network camera or wireless access point, as well as to connect the ER52000 with Passenger Information System or NVR.

The uplink ports on the ER52000 support Gigabit bandwidth, Jumbo Frame and bypass relay function resulting in better network efficiency and stability; in the event the switch stops working due to a power failure, the bypass relay will be triggered to ensure non-stop data flow.
