DIN Rail Switch | OAP400

Supplier: Avara Technologies

The OAP400 is a ruggedised, DIN rail, managed, 5-Port layer 2 switch to deliver ethernet services in industrial applications.


 The Avara OAP400 is a stand alone, DIN-rail, 5-port managed Ethernet switch that has been specifically designed to provide a compact solution for delivering Ethernet services over optical fibre in industrial applications.

The OAP400 provides 4x10/100 Base-T tributary interfaces and a single 100Base-FX uplink interface which can operate over single mode or multi-mode fibre.

The OAP400 delivers high performance Layer 2 Ethernet switching in a compact form factor. Tag based VLANs compliant with 802.1q are supported allowing network segmentation without being restricted by physical connections.

Quality of Service (QoS) compliant with 802.1p is available providing four queues for traffic prioritization. Queuing control mode can be configured as Strict or Weighted Round Robin (WRR) to ensure starvation does not occur.

Furthermore, features such as rate limiting on the Ethernet ports is provided, preventing unpredictable network performance due to broadcast storms or flooded unicast storms of malfunctioning equipment.

To provide secured network access, the OAP400 supports MAC address allow lists to ensure that only trusted devices gain access to the network.

The OAP400 can be managed locally via the console port or remotely using Telnet, SNMP or Avara’s Web Server over a secure VLAN.

When used in conjunction with the Avara DFX12SF product, the OAP400 can be managed using OAM (Operations, Administration & Maintenance) messages.

This feature allows the upstream DFX switch to act as a management proxy for the OAP400 device, resulting in Zero on site configuration, thus delivering a true "Plug and Go" solution. Full remote configuration and software download functionality reduces installation time and complexity.

A comprehensive set of SNMP traps and alarms are provided to assist fault management and isolation.

The OAP400 is a low power device making it an ideal solution for solar powered deployments. Also further power savings can be made by individual port enable/disable via software.

The OAP400 also supports dual power feed functionality to enhance system availability.
