The units are EN50155 compliant, which makes them suitable for railways, and they are also Class 1, Div. 2 rated, suitable for hazardous location environments. The EN50155 specification is a railway standard that covers requirements for EMI, ESD, temperature, shock vibration, power input, shock, vibration, and safety.

Industry standard M12 connectors provide Ethernet and power connections and operate from 12 V dc to 48 V dc. Two redundant power inputs are reverse polarity protected.


Three models are fully managed. The LNX-800N-67-T has eight 10/100TX ports, while the LNX-1002Nx-67-T (x: M–multimode, S–single mode) has eight 10/100TX ports and two 100FX ports. Management features include VLANs, IGMP snooping, IPv6 support, port trunking with LACP, LLDP, SSH, SSL, and route redundancy through RSTP or from Aaxeon’s proprietary ring.

In addition, the oil and gas industry can take advantage of the Class 1, Div. 2 rating that will allow these units to be mounted outside in a hazardous location without a NEMA enclosure.port trunking with LACP, LLDP, SSH, SSL, and route redundancy through RSTP or from Aaxeon’s proprietary ring.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
