June 2016 - We have added a high port-count managed fiber Ethernet switch to our portfolio of UL 864 recognized component Ethernet switches. The EIRX series of managed Ethernet switches are intended for campus installations attaching to EIS6 and EIS8 edge switches. These three switch series meet the requirements of Underwriters Laboratories (UL) 864 Control Units and Accessories for Fire Alarm Systems 9th Edition. All new fire alarm and smoke control systems being installed claiming UL 864 compliance must comply with this latest edition.
The EIRX was tested to industrial EMC levels in order to maintain high data integrity. As a layer 2 managed switch it supports numerous protocols such as SNMP, STP, RSTP and IGMP Snooping. It supports VLAN partitions and various types of Quality of Service (QoS). Configuration is mainly via a web browser but a console port exists for basic configuration.
Components that bear the UL Recognized Component mark are separately covered under UL's Follow-Up Surveillance program to ensure continued compliance and prevent unpleasant surprises when an end-product is inspected.
