EC: LNP-602AGH-T 6-port industrial unmanaged PoE switch
Network integration – Ethernet hardware: The LNP-602AGH-T from Aaxeon Technologies is an industrial Ethernet switch with four PoE+ gigabit ports and two SFP ports that can provide up to 30 W of power to each injector port. This is a Control Engineering 2012 Engineers’ Choice finalist.
The success of PoE has prompted a new IEEE specification, which allows for higher power levels to be delivered from power sourcing equipment to powered devices. PoE+ promises to continue supporting IEEE 802.3af but will also deliver more power to enable a new breed of PoE products. Aaxeon Technologies' six-port industrial unmanaged PoE switch, the LNP-602AGH-T, is compliant with the standard IEEE 802.3af PoE as well as the IEEE 802.3at PoE+ design that can supply up to 30 W output per port, therefore increasing the number of devices that can potentially be powered via PoE. The LNP-602AGH-T eliminates the need for separate switches/injectors and provides the benefits of more reliable power, greater deployment flexibility, and more advanced and dynamic power capabilities. This switch also offers GigE copper ports that can support 802.11 n AP with up to 300 Mbps throughput.
The market for industrial PoE devices is growing rapidly. Aaxeon’s LNP-602AGH-T is one of the first industrial PoE+ switches on the market to support outdoor camera applications, industrial wireless applications, and various other industrial PoE applications. Because of its higher wattage capability, the LNP-602AGH-T can support higher powered devices such as IP cameras with PTZ control and 802.11 n AP with dual high-power radios that continue to appear more frequently as the market advances. This product has a broad range of certifications and classifications yet is still priced as an affordable industrial solution, allowing it to be utilized in multiple applications. Aaxeon is proud to offer a 5-year warranty and free technical support on the LNP-602AGH-T to any customer, guaranteeing reliable service and customer satisfaction.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
