Ethernet Direct Switches Utilized in Mine-Sweeping Application

Taipei, Taiwan, 28 May, 2010 - Ethernet Direct Corporation, a professional and primary provider of industrial networking and communication solutions, offers industrial-grade Ethernet switches for military industry in land mine-sweeping application.
Within active combat zones, mine clearance is imperatively important for the safety of the operation and the personnel involved. This once-done-by-minesweepers task now is handled by mine detection vehicles, largely reducing human injuries and life loss, and increasing the pass-through speed for the entire operation.

The vehicle-mounted mine detection system is a highly developed demining tool often deployed in the front lines today. Suitable in harsh terrain, VMMD guarantees a fast and efficient route clearance, creating safe passage for military and civilian personnel and vehicles. High level of integration of VMMD can only be achieved by using Ethernet connections. A robust and reliable communication is required. The system integrator of this project hence chose Ethernet Direct as the industrial Ethernet switch solutions provide for Ethernet Direct has long reputation in providing industrial, reliable, and rugged switch solutions.

The selected product is HMG-628G, an 8-port industrial full gigabit managed Ethernet switch. HMG-628G's gigabit capabilities allows a fast data transmission. HMG-628G has X-Ring Ring Redundancy design with less 10ms recovery time. This important feature ensures communications non-stop, which is extremely crucial in this application. HMG-628G is also equipped with 2 SPF ports, providing extra flexibility in selecting the most suitable fiber interfaces. Other advanced management functions, such as QoS, further help facilitate the speed of operation by prioritizing different data and signals.
