Allied Telesis has released the AT-1E300-12GP industrial Ethernet layer switch to enable manufacturers to resolve the complexity of networks in the Industrial Internet of Things. The system can withstand harsh environments, including temperatures that range from -40°F to 167°F (-40°C to 70°C). It provides gigabit data rates from its 12Ethernet ports, and the company says it is resilient to network faults.

Furthermore, the system supports 60-W PoE for industrial video devices and provides gigabit Ethernet connectivity for PLCs, motor drives, robots and Ethernet-attached flow meters.  It comes in both 24- and 48-VDC versions, operates without a fan, and uses a DIN rail or wall mount.
