LANactive Industry solution

Managed industrial Ethernet switches and cabling for mission-critical data network infrastructures

  • Active switch systems for communication and monitoringEthernet networks provide an intelligent platform for PV sub-systems, like monitoring control, maintenance, IP video surveillance and security.
  • Our industrial Ethernet switches allow to create standardized and highly reliable data network infrastructure in harsh environments and ensure optimal transmission quality, redundancy, security, interoperability and easy maintenance.
  • LANactive Industry solution includes the Ethernet switches, copper and fiber optic cabling, including its industrial variant and DIN-rail mounted connectivity, switches configuration and acquaintance software and a full range of support services.

KEMA/DNV-GL proved Nexans industrial Ethernet switches compliance to IEC 61850 (3, 6, 7-1, 7-2, 7-3, 7-4, 8-1, 9-1) which is key to enable standardized universal data communication between various field devices of electrical grid infrastructures and managements SCADA, which significantly improves the efficiency of power generation, distribution and consumption infrastructures.

Fields of application include the control of wind turbines, the networking of transformer substations, remote monitoring of power meters (e.g. automatic metering), and security (e.g. video surveillance at airports, hotels, hospitals, schools, etc). Traffic management applications and the control of machines are just a few further examples of the diverse applications of the Nexans iSwitch systems.

Ethernet interfaces from 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps up to 1000 Mbps Ethernet are supported. The iSwitch allows to adapt the interfaces to the application by using the corresponding pluggable modules (Fast Ethernet or Gigabit SFP). It is designed for a wide input voltage and operating temperature range (-40°C up to +85 °C). This underlines the economic efficiency and the flexibility of the Nexans industrial series.
