The Loop-IP6810 is a self-healing ring network termination unit (NTU) with a built-in L2 switch. It can be desktop, wall or DIN rail mounted. LEAPS, RSTP, or MSTP* Ethernet Ring protection or point-to-point protection is made possible in 100 Base-FX networks with the IP6810.
All end equipment can be either in packet format via Ethernet ports or serial data via RS232/485 interfaces which will be converted into packet format within the IP6810. The IP6810 has two WAN optical and electrical interfaces, two RS232/485 DTE interfaces, three Ethernet LAN interfaces, two sets of dry contact IN/OUT interfaces, and one alarm relay connector. The IP6810 comes in an industrial hardening mode to support temperatures from -20°C to 70°C (-4°F to 158°F).
The IP6810 supports auto-discovery to locate all units on the ring, and also supports remote configuration for ease of installation.Single AC, single DC or dual DC is supported based on field requirements. Power over Ethernet (PoE) option is also available.
The IP6810 facilitates automation systems, SCADA systems, surveillance systems, traffic control systems, transportation systems and IP networking with robust protection in ring, point-to-point, or omnibus-like topology. Easy installation and configuration make maintenance and further expansion more efficient and cost-effective.
