Industrial Ethernet products cost 20 per cent less

Korenix has established a new sales and technical support company in Redditch, UK. The new company, Korenix (UK) Ltd, offers UK-based customers sales and technical guidance on Korenix's complete range of robust, high-quality, cost-effective Ethernet connectivity devices including the JetNet, JetBox and JetPoE ranges.

Korenix designs and manufactures a range of industrial Ethernet switches, device servers, power-over-Ethernet (PoE) switches and embedded industrial computers. While the technical quality of these devices is said to match competing European products, the cost is claimed to be around 20 per cent less.

Targeted at OEMs, systems integrators, control and automation engineers, production/maintenance engineers and IT professionals working in industrial environments, Korenix products are found in a diverse range of network applications including industrial environments, manufacturing, transportation, medical establishments, energy and utility companies, point-of-sale, industrial automation, airports, security and surveillance systems.

Korenix's more recent products include the JetNet 5010G, a Gigabit managed Ethernet switch that offers fast Ethernet recovery time of less than 5ms. According to Korenix, the JetNet 5010G is the only industrial Ethernet switch to provide 3Gbit SFP connections in one modular design. The company also claims that most competing suppliers can only offer two SFP connections per switch and that other vendors require users to purchase three separate SFP models and three separate RJ45 models to achieve the desired connectivity.

All-in-one network communications device

Another new product just launched in the UK is the JetBox 9300, a multi-function network communications device that combines a router, Ethernet-managed switch and an industrial computer into a single compact box. The industrial computer is an Atmel 180MHz, 64MB SDRAM (128MB optional), RISC-based embedded computer, with a built-in Linux operating system, as well as VCOM, Modbus and Modbus/TCP functionality. The device is equipped with all the common communications interfaces including five Ethernet ports, two USB 2.0 ports, two RS-232 ports, two RS-232/422/485 ports, eight digital inputs, eight digital outputs and one SD card slot.

Andy Cross, Business Development Manager at Korenix (UK) Ltd, comments: "We are all very excited to be part of the new UK-based Korenix operation and the team here is eager to start selling Korenix's world-class products into all areas of UK industry."
