The new μMAGBES Family is a ten to 19-port manageable Gigabit (Gb) Ethernet switch of the fourth-generation MPL ones.

The solution is designed according to MPL’s design philosophy, which includes flexibility, low power, fanless, extended temperature capability and long-term availability.

All μMAGBES configurations are extremely compact and start with a size of 136mm x 113mm x 50mm. For integration in an existing cabinet or housing, the switch is also available in an open-frame configuration with a mounting plate for easy integration. Hence it is the perfect solution to be customised for small places.

The input power requirement of the μMAGBES is 5vdc to 36vdc and the device uses less than 6W at full speed with ten ports operational. The switch can be operated in an environment of -20°C to +60°C, and -40°C to +85°C optionally. It does not need to be cooled by a fan.

In addition to the RJ45 configuration, the μMAGBES is also available with M12 connectors or can be integrated into a 19in rack enclosure. MPL also provides solutions with IP67 MIL housing and MIL 38999 connectors of the customer’s choice. The same applies if fibre ports are required.

The new μMAGBES is designed to be operated in a master-slave configuration, making a flexible system with a cascaded switch easy. The solution is available with ten and 19 ports and more, including a command-line interface (CLI) option. All ports have status LEDs, showing the activity and speed of each port and are available on an external LED panel. The same applies to the reset switch and the default settings.

The μMAGBES product support features (but is not limited to):

• Configurable-via-Web Interface (including SSL), Telnet, SNMP (including SNMPv3) or RS232/USB (CLI)
– Port-based and IEEE 802.1Q VLAN
– IEEE 802.1D Rapid Spanning Tree
– IEEE 802.1X MAC Address checking
– Quality of service
– Port monitoring
– Switch statistics
• Firmware update via HTTP or TFTP
• Down and up-loadable configuration files in XML format
• GMPv3 support

All MPL products are designed for long-term availability and the μMAGBES family will be present for at least ten years. MPL’s own component stock guarantees repairs for up to 20 years. Extended temperature ranges can be fulfilled and are tested in MPL’s own climatic chambers according to the customer’s request.

The solution meets or exceeds the most common standards. Particular references are: EN 55022, EN 55024, EN 61000, MIL-STD-461E, EN 60068, EN 50155, MIL-STD-810-F, EN 60601, EN 60950, CE, IEC 60945, IACS and E10.
