Actelis: ML680DF Industrial Ethernet Switch/Extender

Industrial Ethernet Switch and Extender

The ML680DF is part of Actelis’ ML680Dx family of access-switching products designed for industrial, intelligent traffic network, surveillance, pipeline and utility applications. Complementing the ML684Dx, which supports both bonded copper and fibre, the ML680DF is a cost-optimized, fibre-fed only version with east and west fibre connections that allow multiple sensors or cameras at various locations to be connected in a linear chain, RSTP/STP mesh or ERPSv2 ring configurations.

Delivering up to 1Gbps of high-speed Ethernet where you need it.

The ML680DF offers 1 Gbps of full Ethernet switching capabilities, supporting add/drop of traffic to up to six Ethernet client ports at each site while passing the remainder through to other locations. Featuring a minimal factor, fanless design, and DIN rail mounting, the ML680DF is ideal for deployment in almost any traffic, utility, or industrial cabinet, pedestal or vault.

Environmentally hardened with redundant power inputs and featuring a robust, field-proven design, the unit is NEMA 4 extended temperature compliant and K.20/K.21/K.45 rated for protection against over voltage and over current conditions, ensuring high reliability and trouble-free operation.
