AMG Systems has introduced the AMG 570 series of 11-port industrially hardened layer 2+ ethernet switches with PoE for applications requiring up to 90 W of operating power.

The AMG570 Series offers layer 2 network management with additional layer 3 capabilities, such as DHCP and static routing. The need for higher wattage PoE continues to drive innovation throughout the industry. Models with up to 90 W of energy can power a multitude of devices including outdoor PTZ cameras with heater/blower capabilities, large multi-sensor cameras, PoE lighting, wireless access points and access control products. The AMG 570 series features 8 gigabit TX ports and 3 SFP ports that can transport 100 Mbps, 1 Gbps and 2.5 Gbps ethernet with available AMG SFP modules. Depending on the specified model, the 8 TX ports are designed to supply 15-90 W of PoE.

The AMG570 Series managed ethernet switches are fully TAA and NDAA compliant, and can be used in all U.S. Government installations. The AMG 570 Series models are manufactured in a rugged, thermally efficient enclosure designed to be DIN-Rail or wall mounted. The line is fully hardened and can operate in outdoors and extreme temperatures (40-75 °C). The AMG570 Series is a true IEEE802.3bt device and can offer 15, 30, 60 and 90-W power to edge PoE devices with multiple AMG power supply options. The AMG570 has the capability to provide PoE within the standards based 48-56VDC, 9-36VDC or 18-75VDC by utilizing an integrated voltage booster. This allows greater flexibility on installations where DC to DC conversion is not readily available, such as solar applications.

Steve Clarke, AMG managing director, said, “When we decided to enter the U.S. Market, we saw a gap in competing product offerings. There are many 11-port switches available, but what was lacking was a switch series that could offer -bt PoE, which was offered in a compact size, manufactured in the U.K. with TAA and NDAA compliance. The AMG570 Switch Series satisfies the need for such a device.”

Tom Exley, AMG technical director, said, “The AMG570 managed switch sets the quality standard. Our engineering team looked at what was currently available, identified weaknesses and engineered our product line to overcome those weaknesses. We believe in the quality and stand behind them with lifetime support. This switch opens dozens of applications that can now utilize PoE as the power source.”
