The MS-2404GS-8C is also equipped with USB storage for easy configuration restoration.

Covid-19 is pushing industrial factories to change and redesign their methods including staff separation and rotation. Worldwide factories including electricity companies are taking precautions to minimize the number of workers on site by rotation or shift work.

In Taiwan, the Electricity Company has established dual master control centres to work in sync and provide mutual backup. As the epidemic continues to worsen, the workers will start to work remotely under the government’s instruction. Such a backup mechanism requires central control devices to be supported with remote control and non-stop transmission.

Konten’s industrial grade MS-2404GS-8C Ethernet switch is built for real-time transmission of important data in power substations and tested by SGS for compliance of IEC61850-3/IEEE1613. MS-2404GS-8C is a 28-port industrial Ethernet switch equipped with 16x Gigabit Ethernet ports, 8x Gigabit combo Ethernet RJ/SFP, and 4x 1000F(x) SFP Slot, and not only supports wide operating temperatures, from -40 to 85°C, under extreme conditions, but also provides useful tools for remote network maintenance.

The MS-2404GS-8C is also equipped with USB storage for easy configuration restoration, CCN (Command and Control Node) for batch firmware upgrades at one time, status chart for real-time data transmission record and ERPS (IEEE G.8032) to form a non-stop backup ring. When it comes to a sudden network shutdown, the SNMP alarm trap will be triggered to alert the engineer to the issue and solve the problem immediately. In addition, Konten’s industrial managed switches incorporate an MQTT function which can help the administrator monitor and control the factory devices from distant locations through fibre or wireless network connection.

In addition for devices requiring PoE power, the MT-0802G is embedded with a PoE booster for applications where 49~57 VDC power is not available for a standard PoE power input. With a wide range input of 12~57 VDC and PoE boost Ethernet switch, additional costs on voltage converters are saved and also efficiency is increased enabling users to deploy various devices powered by PoE.
