Amplicon's Industrial Networking products provide a complete solution for networking and connecting different signal types across a fault-tolerant Ethernet backbone. Many of the products meet the stringent environmental requirements required by rail applications making product selection for System Integrators very straightforward.
Managed Industrial Ethernet switches are used to build redundant networks for a wide variety of rail applications thanks to their EN50155 / EN50121-4 approvals and innovative redundancy protocols. Turbo chain is a new and uniquely flexible redundancy protocol from Moxa and IGMP-L2 is a patented multicast traffic management system from Garrettcom - our experts are on hand to help with all attributes of network design.
Unmanaged Industrial Ethernet switches are an ideal connectivity solution for multiple Ethernet devices in a rail environment. Whether it is to connect a handful of subsystems in a ticketing machine or to provide Power over Ethernet links to IP cameras, a 'rail' approved product is available for your application.
Serial to Ethernet converters are the 'Swiss Army Knife' for any system integrator allowing RS232, RS422 or RS485 devices to communicate across an Ethernet / IP backbone. This means legacy serial devices such as PTZ (Pan, Tilt and Zoom) cameras, fire alarm panels, RTUs and PLCs can be used across a LAN, WAN or even the internet.
Remote I/O modules allow digital and analogue I/O signals to be transmitted across any Ethernet / IP network. Amplicon are currently developing a unique rail approved product specifically for use on rolling stock that will allow vehicle data to be accumulated and transferred in real-time over the 3G phone network. Signals typically captured by Remote I/O modules in rail systems include battery voltage, door sensors, brake pressure, transformer temperature and any other type of analogue or digital signal.
