AMG unveils new AMG570 series Ethernet switches

Biggleswade, Bedfordshire (UK)

AMG takes full control of the new AMG570 line with in-house developed software.

AMG Systems are releasing the new AMG570 Series, heir latest, UK designed and manufactured, layer 2+ Ethernet switches.

AMG Systems have been manufacturing transmission hardware in the UK for over 25 years, but what is unique with this new series is that the software has been developed in-house by the AMG engineering team in the UK, making it, according to the company, a more secure, trustworthy, and reliable network transmission partner.

The AMG570 Series provide 100Mbps, Gigabit, and 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet switching for industrial (-40 to 75°C) network applications. It is available with 8x RJ45 Gigabit ports supporting optional 30/60/90W PoE and 3x 100Mb, 1Gb, and 2.5Gb SFP ports.

With options for DIN rail or wall mount housing, the AMG570 has a unique IP40 rated thermal enclosure design enabling it to dissipate heat more effectively at high temperatures, ensuring maximum reliability even when under full PoE load in extreme environments.

Supporting a wide range of management functions, including Rapid and Multiple Spanning Tree as well as Ethernet Ring Protection Switching (ERPS) protocols for network redundancy. Along with a comprehensive suite of the latest security features, IGMP functionality is also supported, enabling multicast traffic which is commonly used in IP CCTV deployments. Developing this switch, AMG have focused on integrating functions and security features that are optimised for Video over IP.

Where some other suppliers are known to import their products from overseas, often with critical operational software that has been written elsewhere, AMG are now designing and manufacturing the complete solution through their internal UK and USA hardware and software engineering teams.

This sets AMG apart from the competition, as Technical Director Tom Exley explains,

'To be able to offer our customers a fully secure network solution, we expanded our UK manufacturing facilities and invested further in our hardware and software engineering teams. This gives us the ability to ensure relevant legislation is met when working on high-security projects'

Support in our industry is key, and this is why AMG supplies a lifetime technical support warranty on their full industrial product range. This means AMG can offer their customers what many can't - complete accountability.
