Moxa’s Gigabit Fiber EN 50155 Managed Switch Maximizes Network Reliability for Rolling Stock Applications


Moxa is pleased to introduce a new EN 50155 Ethernet switch that maximizes the network reliability of rolling stock applications. The TN-5510-2GLSX-ODC EN 50155 switch features Gigabit fiber-optic connections, which provide high bandwidth and long distance transmissions, as well as high EMI immunity. It is designed especially for onboard environments, which can take advantage of its reliable network performance in railway environments suffering from high vibration and electrical noise.

The TN-5510-2GLSX-ODC is a 10-port EN50155 Ethernet switch that comes with 2 fiber-optic Gigabit ports. The Gigabit Ethernet network provides enough bandwidth to deliver real-time video and voice communications for passenger entertainment and security-related applications, and fiber-optic cable is able to extend up to 2km transmission distance for the communication backbone network. Fiber cabling also possesses greater resistance against EMI interference, to prevent interruptions in network transitions or data loss and secure resilient IP data connectivity between train cars.

In addition, the TN-5510-2GLSX-ODC uses Q-ODC connectors that are robust and easy to install with a simple pull-push mechanism. The TN-5510-2GLSX-ODC also supports Turbo Ring™, which enables fast fault recovery of less than 20ms at a full load of 250 Ethernet switches, to ensure excellent network redundancy. Device IP addresses can be set with a rotary switch, to simplify maintenance

The TN-5510-2GLSX-ODC joins Moxa’s large family of EN 50155 switches, which includes 100 different models. Moxa’s EN 50155 switches include devices that offer wide -40 to 75°C operating temperature range, wide 24 to 110 VDC power input range, and industrial certifications such as EN 50155, EN 50121-3-2, or EN 50121-4.
