Comtrol Releases 10-Port 802.3at Managed PoE Plus Switch for Security and Wireless Applications

MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota — July 19, 2011—Comtrol Corporation, a leading manufacturer of industrial device connectivity products, today announced the release of the RocketLinx ES7510 Industrial Managed PoE Plus switch to its Power over Ethernet (PoE) product line. This switch is designed to meet the high power and advanced management needs of critical PoE applications such as real-time IP video surveillance and wireless communication utilizing WiMAX and 802.11 a/b/g/n access points. Eight PoE ports provide full 802.3at PoE Plus support, enabling connection of higher power PoE devices and improvement in connectivity; two Gigabit uplink ports provide essential bandwidth for upstream data communications.

The ES7510’s advanced power budget and priority controls provide complete flexibility to define the power limits and operation of connected devices. The benefit to the user is the ability to configure power consumption and guarantee power to the highest priority devices in the event of power supply overloading or environmental conditions that impact available power.

“The ES7510 introduces the ideal PoE integration platform for IP surveillance and access point connectivity via the unique combination of eight 802.3at PoE Plus and two Gigabit uplink ports in an extended temperature fully managed switch,” says David Boldt, Director of Product Management at Comtrol, “This creates flexibility for integrators by merging the power support for the latest PoE devices with complete management, security and power control in a highly reliable, industrial package.”

Remote control and management of PoE applications reduce the need for costly service calls and unplanned system downtime. In addition to a full array of Layer 2+ management capabilities, the ES7510 also supports the most advanced security features to protect the network and guarantee secure, reliable data transmission. Redundant power inputs, alarm relay, and email notification of event alarms, assure reliable performance and management for mission critical applications. DHCP supporting IP and MAC binding, IEEE802.1X Access Control, SSH, and many other controls are also included to make secure administration and management a simple task.
