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.
