    ES8100 Series

    eSmartES™ ES8100 Series Industrial Managed Ethernet Switches with SiteVu™

    The second platform in the eSmartES™ family is the ES8100 series of Managed Ethernet EdgeSwitches. These managed switches are designed especially for "edge" applications, deploying the latest in reliability and security for harsh environments, on the perimeter of the network where Smart Grid and industrial devices are connected.

    The eSmartES's Westell Edge Operating System (WEOS) features include SiteVu™, Secure Web Management GUI and CLI interfaces, SNMPv3 management, 802.1p QoS Prioritization, Tagbased VLANs, IGMPv3 Snooping and IGMPL2 multicast management, port security, Link OAM (EFM, 802.3ah), and network redundancy options, including STP, RSTP, and MSTP for fault recovery.

    From six to eight 10/100Mb ports can be ordered in the ES8100 series. In the 8 port configuration, ports 7 and 8 are 10/100/1000Mb ports. Ports 7 and 8 can also be configured as optical FE-100FX or GigE ports populated with either a pair of STs, SCs, or LCs interfaces.

    The ES8100 eSmartES switches are ideal for building a switched, hardened, Ethernet network infrastructure, connecting edge devices such as SCADA telemetry radios, Programmable Logic Controllers, and cameras with upstream switches or routers. Designed for use in industrial and heavy-duty outdoor applications such as power utility substations, video surveillance systems, and traffic control monitoring, the hardened ES8100 handles stressful workloads.

    The ES8100 platform's industrial design features include an extended operating temperature range of -40 to +85°C (-40 to +185°F), redundant DC power of either 24VDC or -48VDC power supply inputs for high availability applications requiring dual power inputs, and provides a high level of immunity to electromagnetic interference and heavy electrical surges. The ES8100 is packaged in a rugged, galvanized steel enclosure that allows either backboard, DIN-rail, or wall mounting for efficient use of cabinet space. It can also be rack mounted in the optional 1RU rack mount bracket.
