AMG Systems introduces new range of unmanaged and semi-managed Ethernet switches and Media converters

2nd generation product range is designed for manufacturing facilities, utilities sites, petrochemical, transportation and other large scale site security applications

London, 19 January 2016 – AMG announces the launch of a completely new range of compact, industrial-grade 1, 2 & 4 port media converters, unmanaged and semi-managed switches. Designed and built in the UK, these ruggedised network devices are designed specifically for deployment in IP CCTV security applications where size constraints exist and where 24/7 reliability for high bandwidth external cameras is demanded.

Andrew Pigram, Sales and Marketing Director at AMG Systems, says, “Since the majority of outdoor cameras are located beyond standard Ethernet’s normally restrictive 90m range, all the new units incorporate SFP (small form-factor pluggable) slots for optical media or Ethernet allowing data transmission up to distances of 120km. With the option of 100Mbps or 1Gbps speeds and 30W of available power per Ethernet port, PoE & PoE+ enabled cameras or other network devices can be powered directly from the AMG switches or media converters, eliminating the need for additional camera PSUs, power cables and installation expense.”

The new semi-managed switches eliminate multicast flooding to local Ethernet connected devices, which makes them ideal for larger CCTV applications where unmanaged switches are not sophisticated enough to handle multicast traffic and where fully managed switches demand an unwelcomed overhead of individual programing, additional cost and network complexity. All models can be quickly surface mounted or simply clipped on to a DIN rail for rapid installation and servicing. AMG’s wide range of compatible SFPs offer huge flexibility in choice of optical media, including multi-mode and single mode optical fibre and extended copper Ethernet allowing up to 500m at 100Mbps using CAT5e.

The new product range is available from January 18th, 2016. Datasheets, example design schematics, A&E documents and full product specifications are available via
