BOBCAT Managed Switches provide advanced security to help manufacturers build next generation networks. For applications in need of maximum power without device limitations, these next generation compact switches provide Power over Ethernet (PoE/PoE+)with up to 240 W and real-time communication throughtime-sensitive networking (TSN) technology on all ports.

Benefits
– Increase performance with Power over Ethernet (PoE/PoE+) for greater power to more devices
– Supports up to 240 W across 8 ports without load sharing to ensure maximum power output
– Simultaneously support multiple services on one network through TSN technology
– Prepare for future network growth with increased bandwidth and speed capabilities

Key Features
 – Benefit from up to 8 available PoE/PoE+ ports, each with up to 30 W per port
– Use in extreme environmental conditions, including wide temperature ranges and options for 24 or 48 V power input
– Real-time TSN Ethernet support for precise data transmission
– Advanced security features, including wire-speed access control lists (ACL) and automatic denial-ofservice (DoS) prevention
– Increased bandwidth capabilities, supporting tri-speed fiber SFP slots with 100Mbit/s, 1 Gbit/s and 2.5 Gbit/s spee Additional interface options     through digital input for more flexibility
– Robust industrial design reinforces the switch’s resistance against harsh conditions

Markets
The need for more PoE power is growing across many sectors, especially physical security and production automation applications. With additional security and realtime features the compact managed switches are an essential appliance relevant to many industrial markets, including automotive, manufacturing, machine building, water management and oil and gas.

Camera with autofocus and auto iris with PoE from The Imaging Source

The Imaging Source just released a new zoom as a first in a new family of GigE zoom cameras. It features 20x optical zoom, autofocus and auto iris with Power over Ethernet (PoE). The cameras is available in both mono and color and has the Sony Pregius IMX265 sensor with 3.1MP.


With the sensors global shutter, it is suitable for imaging even fast-moving objects. The low distortion and high dynamic range also help you to get really good images. It also has a mechanical IR cut filter, precise stepper motors to control both zoom and focus and all features is controlled by the supplied software.

The camera is ideally suited for a wide range of machine vision tasks where objects vary in size or distance such as automation, quality inspection logistics and ITS(intelligent traffic systems).

Applications of the camera:
Remote monitoring of processes: Sometimes there is a need to monitor manufacturing or other process from a distance, then it is good to be able to partly get an overview image – zoomed out position, and to be able to see specific details – zoomed in location.

With this camera you can advantageously achieve this. If you choose to connect with one of our cloud services from Insys, you can monitor and control the camera from any location, for example if the machine is with your customer, you can manage the camera from your office.

Variations in size:
In production, quality control is often done with the help of cameras. This is difficult if you make parts with different sizes in the same production line. Previously, you had to adjust focus manually or have multiple cameras. Now you can do this automatically and have a couple of fixed positions that you alternate between. This retains the advantages of fixed optics but provides greater flexibility and a cheaper solution in a single camera.

World-leading Danfo chose IoT solution from Recab

Public toilet specialist Danfo, based in Nora in Sweden, is a world-leading expert on communal sanitation solutions and was founded by Nobel Industries in 1969. Danfo’s bespoke toilets for public spaces are complex facilities that demand high-quality technical solutions.  Danfo has chosen Recab’s products and services to ensure reliable automated, remote controlled IT solutions.

– We chose Recab for their overall solutions, says Ola Sjöstedt, project manager at El & Automation in Nora, who is responsible for the installation in Danfo’s toilet facilities.

Compact and reliable router
The 3G/4G router EBW-L100 is a compact, industrial router that was chose for the Danfo toilet units.. The router has an in-built firewall, handles different types of VPN solutions and fits on a DIN rail. In short, it is a reliable and easily fitted hardware solution that can be upgraded to suit future needs.

– The router is simple to install and takes up very little space, Ola Sjöstedt.

 Cloud solution for automated distance control
In addition to the hardware solution, Recab has also delivered an INSYS VPN solution that suits Danfo’s needs. The INSYS icom Connectivity Suite is a reliable, cloud-based service that is easy to use. Many of Danfo’s toilet facilities are stationed abroad, and accessing units remotely cuts down on travel and therefore saves time and reduces the environmental impact.

– The cloud-based service is very stable. We get regular service updates from INSYS, says Ola Sjöstedt who – thanks to the cloud solution – can manage software updates and support local technicians remotely.

icom Connectivity Suite​ (molntjänst)

High safety standards
Adding a fire alarm or a payment solution are examples of services that can be managed remotely. In addition to installing an alarm that detects heat, fire or open doors, it’s also possible to access relevant statistics remotely.  The router together with the VPN solution are used in approximately 150 public toilet facilities around the world.

– Recab has been a good partner. The products are delivered on time and we receive good support when we need it. Technology is rapidly moving forward and in the future we’ll see even more digitalised solutions, says Danfo product manager Magnus Appelgren.
