Ordering Info

EtherWAN's EX78162 provides a hardened 18-port switching platform supporting IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet, high performance switching with robust management features required for mission-critical and harsh environments where sustained connectivity is crucial. The EX78162’s small form factor (only half the size of a standard rack switch) is a unique feature for a device with these specifications, allowing it to be installed in locations where space is limited.

The EX78162 is equipped with 16 10/100BASE-TX PoE ports, in combination with two Gigabit SFP ports. The IEEE 802.3at PoE ports provide up to 30W/port with a total power budget of 240W, making the switch truly versatile for connecting with PoE Powered Devices (PD) with different bandwidth and power consumption requirements such as outdoor PTZ dome cameras, wireless access points, and way-side communication. The EX78162 is equipped with EtherWAN's Alpha-Ring self-healing ring technology providing less than 15ms fault recovery time. With the hardened specifications, the EX78162 Series is designed to operate at -40 to 75°C in harsh environments, where high ESD, shock, and vibration may be present.

Additionally, the EX78162 supports DDM (Digital Diagnostics Monitoring) on installed SFP transceivers. This allows for close monitoring of real-time parameters, including optical input/output power, temperature, laser bias current, and transceiver supply voltage. The DDM interface includes a system of alarms, which can send an alert when an operating parameter exceeds an established setting.
