AMG 570 Series of Switches Deliver up to 90 Watts of Power
AMG, has introduced a new series of network switches that delivers the flexibility and power necessary to provide PoE capabilities to a range of devices.
BIGGLESWADE, U.K.—AMG Systems of the United Kingdom and USA, has introduced the AMG 570 series of 11-port industrially hardened Layer 2+ Ethernet switches with PoE for applications requiring up to 90 Watts of operating power.
The AMG 570 Series offers Layer 2 network management with additional Layer 3 capabilities, such as DHCP and static routing. According to the company, models with up to 90-watts can power a multitude of devices, including outdoor PTZ cameras with heater/blower capabilities, large multi-sensor cameras, PoE lighting, wireless access points, and access control products. The AMG 570 series features eight Gigabit TX ports and three SFP ports that can transport 100Mbps, 1Gbps, and 2.5Gbps Ethernet with available AMG SFP modules. Depending on the specified model, the eight TX ports are designed to supply 15 – 90 watts of PoE.
“The AMG 570 managed switch sets the quality standard. Our engineering team looked at what was currently available, identified weaknesses, and engineered our product line to overcome those weaknesses,” says Tom Exley, technical director, AMG.
“We believe in the quality and stand behind them with lifetime support. This switch opens dozens of applications that can now utilize PoE as the power source. Plus having a switch made in the UK gives your network an added layer of security.”
AMG 570 Series of Switches Meet Industry Standards
The AMG 570 Series managed Ethernet Switches are designed in the U.S. and manufactured in an ISO9001-certified U.K. facility. AMG points out that its latest switches are fully TAA and NDAA compliant, and unlike similar products from other Asian countries, the company continues, its switches can be used in all U.S. Government installations.
AMG states the AMG 570 Series models are manufactured in a rugged, thermally efficient enclosure designed to be DIN-Rail or wall mounted. The line is fully hardened and can operate in outdoors and extreme temperatures (-40 to 167 degrees Fahrenheit).
The company also points out the AMG 570 Series is a true IEEE802.3bt device and can offer 15-, 30-, 60-, and 90-watts of power to edge PoE devices with multiple AMG power supply options. The AMG570 has the capability to provide PoE within the standards based 48 to 56-volts DC, 9 to 36-volts DC or 18 to 75-volts DC by utilizing an integrated voltage booster. This allows greater flexibility on installations where DC to DC conversion is not readily available, such as solar applications.
“When we decided to enter the U.S. Market, we saw a gap in competing product offerings. There are many 11-port switches available, but what was lacking was a switch series that could offer -bt PoE, which was offered in a compact size, manufactured in the U.K. with TAA and NDAA compliance,” adds Steve Clarke, managing director, AMG.
“Asian-sourced products are available, but we found many potential US customers would rather use higher-quality U.S. and U.K.-produced products. The AMG 570 Switch Series satisfies the need for such a device.”
In addition, AMG stresses that it keeps products in stock, with full support from the AMG design team, and it backs its products with its AMG Lifetime Warranty.
