Introduction

Rail Rapid Transit

Nuclear Power plants need to maintain the highest standards of reliability, especially in the sensor sites, where it is most dangerous and harmful to individuals and the environment. Axiomtek now brings rugged automation solutions to factory and plant operations by offering various Ethernet-enabled product solutions to fulfill different requirements of industrial automation. In the diagram below, we setup two Ethernet-ring infrastructures by industrial managed Ethernet switches in the plant area. The first ring for sensors adopts the PoE Ethernet switches with PoE IP camera so that operators can monitor hazardous equipment with their corresponding temperature, level, pressure and status, and is also equipped with our DIN-rack fanless embedded system to support the A/ D I/O modules onsite. Through the Ethernet connectivity, it can work with industrial PLC devices to control a machine or equipment. The second ring is for the control center. The two Ethernet rings both support “ α-ring coupling” and “α-ring” technologies to fit various installation environments.

DIN-rail Fanless Embedded Systems
Axiomtek’s rBOX series of DIN-rack fanless embedded systems is suitable for intelligent computing and communication solutions in critical environments, such as power plant automation, facility monitoring systems, and intelligent transportation systems. The rBOX series supports an extended temperature range of -40°C to 70°C for use in extreme operating environments. The fanless design increases reliability, extends MTTR, and ultimately reduces maintenance efforts. Front accessible I/O cabling is very convenient for wiring and maintenance. The rBOX series features a redundant Ethernet LAN connection for greater availability and reliability. The redundant power inputs minimize the risk of data loss in the event of a single power failure. Their compact size with DIN-rail mounting allows for easy installation into control cabinets. The rBOX series meets Safety Agency requirements and have passed heavy industrial EMI/EMS testing. To streamline implementation of management applications, Axiomtek has launched AXView monitoring software package. Based on SNMP protocols, AXView makes it easy for system administrators to manage and monitor remote computers.

Industrial Ethernet Switches
Axiomtek's 5/8/16-port industrial unmanaged Ethernet switches are designed to operate in the harsh environments at the edge of the network. They are available in standard 10/100Mbps and Gigabit 10/100/1000Mbps speeds, with both copper wire and fiber optic cable connections. Except to the Ethernet generic switches, the PoE (Power over Ethernet) switches that send both power and data through an Ethernet cable are also available. All of the switches feature DIN-rail or panel mounted, and come with power options to match the applications that require a tough, environmentally hardened Ethernet switch.
