RocketLinx Unmanaged Ethernet Power Supply Chart

We’ve added a new ethernet power supply chart for both unmanaged and managed switches to all the RocketLinx Industrial Ethernet product pages on the Comtrol website. It is a link to a handy chart that makes choosing the right power supply for specific Switches fast and simple. We broke the chart up in two categories; managed and unmanaged switches.

Transit Surveillance

For one U.S. city located on the West Coast of the United States, public transportation is continuing to rise.  When a public transportation company was planning an additional line for the light rail, they contacted Comtrol and purchased the RocketLinx ES7528 PoE (power over Ethernet) switch. With Transit Surveillance Powered PoE, the RocketLinx is able to provide power to the IP cameras, IP phones, ticketing machines, and transit displays located along the platform.

The ES7528 is built for industrial use and can withstand the constant vibrations expected at a light rail station. In addition, it’s built to operate in temperatures ranging from -25°C to 65°C, making it the optimal solution for this light rail line.
