The French manufacturer Slat made a successful appearance as a solution provider at the recent Security event in Essen. Their Synaps PoE network interface outdoor box for video and network security (IP66/IK10) was demonstrated in a live presentation that impressed in particular with its compact dimensions and the factory-fitted interior.
The box houses an Ethernet switch with either two or four PoE+ ports, a DC UPS with a long-lasting Li-ion battery (LiFePO4 technology) and a powerful lightning. Micro-interruptions and brown-outs won‘t have a chance to cause any damage here. Synaps PoE is an all-in-one solution for secure system operations and the protection of the data to be transmitted. The manufacturer wants to expand this division in the future because the demand for custom solutions is more present than ever – the company‘s experience at the exhibition has confirmed this.
Connected devices can be remotely monitored using integrated functions. Device Activity Monitoring identifies the source of faults and forwards the information using a secure protocol (SNMP V1&V3, HTTPS, BACnet IP) to the network control center. A diagnosis follows and commands for automatic reboots will be carried out. Additional space for components is provided within the box to give the customer a solution tailored to his needs – for example, to include a fiber-optic media converter to bridge longer distances.
Switches, recorders, WLAN repeaters, routers etc. can optionally be included because the Synaps solution is suitable for a wide range of uses. It can provide consistent and reliable supervision of critical areas that are difficult to keep in view, such as gas stations, car parking lots, company or industrial compounds, waste disposal sites, central warehouses and logistics centers, freeways and tunnels, airports and harbors or penitentiaries.
