U.S. Coast Guard shipboard electronics experts needed rugged Ethernet switches for various Coast Guard vessels. They found their solution from Red Lion Controls in York, Pa.
Coast Guard Issues Solicitation for 125 Sixnet Ethernet Switches
Officials of the Procurement Branch of the Coast Guard Surface Forces Logistics Center in Oakland, Calif., issued a solicitation this week (HSCG40-15-Q-40374) for Red Lion and its distributors to submit quotations for 125 of Red Lion's Sixnet brand SLX-10MG-1 managed industrial Ethernet switches.
Red Lion engineers manufacturer these switches at their company's Sixnet business in Ballston Lake, N.Y. The SLX-10MG is a 10-port industrial Ethernet managed switch with seven fast and three Gigabit ports of which two are combination ports that support copper and fiber optic connections.
This switch is designed to be rugged, reliable, real-time and secure. It combines compact DIN rail packaging, protected circuitry and software to keep systems going under tough environmental conditions, company officials say.
The switch uses the company's Real-Time-Ring or Rapid Spanning Tree (RSTP) for fast redundant ring or mesh networks, and employs authentication and encryption for security. It operates in temperatures from -40 to 75 degrees Celsius and has redundant dual power inputs.
The unit resists shock and vibration per IEC60068-2-6, -27, and operates to altitudes as high as 30,000 feet. It uses DIN rail or direct panel mounting, has a corrosion-resistant aluminum case, measures 6.02 by 5.52 by 1.63 inches, and weighs 12 ounces.
High Performance with maximum energy efficiency is the goal of the WEG W22 Crusher Duty electric motor. High efficiency and low cost of ownership throughout the entire motor lifetime have been the basis for the W22 development. A design created to maximize performance and energy savings. Compare the standard features of the WEG W22 Crusher Duty motor to any other and see why these motors are "Crusher Duty" tough!
Sola Power Conditioners
Sola Hevi Duty CVS power conditioners will hold output voltages to ±1.0% or less with input variations as great as ±15% (115V ±15% or 120 V +10%/-20%). Units operated at less than rated load will maintain approximately ±1% regulation over a wider input line voltage variation. Output meets NEMA voltage specifications even when input voltage drops to 65% of nominal. No other power conditioning technology is as effective
