HBM’s EX23-R Ethernet switch, a new addition to its popular SomatXR family, is now available from Pickering, Ont.-based Durham Instruments.
The EX23-R features 10 gigabit Ethernet ports for connecting SomatXR modules and accessories. This enables up to nine measurement modules to be connected to the CX23-R field recorder or a PC via Ethernet cable. EX23-R is integrated in the same enclosure as the other SomatXR modules, and is just as rugged — it’s waterproof, dust-proof, shock-proof and vibration-proof, and effectively operates in temperatures ranging from – 40 to 80 degrees C.
The added functionality in the EX23-R is that it supports Power over Ethernet (PoE), which enables accessories such as an Ethernet camera to be supplied with power on five of the 10 ports at a maximum of 15.4 watts each. No separate power supply line is required, which means the wiring effort is reduced.
The Ethernet switch also supports Precision Time Protocol Version 2 (PTPv2), which has enhanced accuracy of less than one microsecond. A standard Ethernet switch can't guarantee this high level of synchronization quality.
SomatXR EX23-R is available from Durham Instruments. The company distributes high-quality electronic instrumentation and data acquisition and control systems across Canada.
Contact Durham Instruments for more information on the SomatXR EX23-R or any of the other products in the SomatXR family.
