Converging energy and broadband

Advanced Networking Solutions

Build your FTTH network with KINOPTIC solutions


Short description of the solution

Based on more than 25 years of experience in the field of high-performance optical fiber and copper networks, Nexans is offering state-of-the-art active Ethernet based switch systems for converging energy and broadband applications. Fields of application include the control of wind turbines, the networking of transformer substations, remote monitoring of power meters (e.g. automatic metering), and security (e.g. access control, video surveillance, etc.) as well as FTTH.

Advantages of the solution

Cable Diagnostic Function

The iSwitch series ensures the easy and fast localization of possible faults on the copper twisted-pair cable links. Short circuits, interruptions, impedance mismatches or reversals, can be localized to the meter via the management feature.

SFP Readout Function

By using special Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP) modules with Digital Diagnostic Monitoring Function in our Nexans iSwitch Systems you are able to monitor the optical parameters and to recognize upcoming problems with the fiber optic link at an early stage!
The Nexans switch management allows to define «Threshold Values» for Laser Bias Current, Output Power and Input Power for each individual SFP interface!

SFP-Readout-Function with threshold definition 

MMC Memory Card

All Nexans iSwitch Systems can be equipped with a MMC Memory Card. Once installed this memory card always stores the latest configuration of the switch. In the event of a system exchange it significantly simplifies the reconfiguration, saves time and maintenance costs! A system exchange can even be done by an untrained worker!

MMC Memory Card 

Multifunctional Input

The Multifunctional Input can be configured as normally open contact (NOC) or normally closed contact (NCC) and can be used to realize e.g. access controls, etc. easily.
