AL220 - AL230 • Industrial Gigabit Ethernet Switch
PoE+ IEEE 802.3at • DIN Rail Bracket or Wall Mount Plate

The AL220 is an eight port industrial Gigabit Ethernet switch box, 1000BASE-T, 100BASE-TX and 10BASE-T compliant. All ports are PoE+ (30W) enabled. The box is available for DIN rail or wall mount, and requires a fixed supply voltage 48/54VDC, applied via a pluggable terminal block.

The AL200 is based on the Marvell® 88E6390 self-managed Ethernet switch, and equipped with IEEE 802.3at Power-over-Ethernet controllers (TI TPS 23861). For AVB/TSN protocol support the box is also available as AL230, provided with a Marvell® ARMADA® CPU in addition.
