FC Product Updates: What’s New for August 2023

Welcome back to Fastcabling Product Updates! We have exciting news for you: our product line has just received some updates that we believe you will find valuable. In the past few months, our team has been working hard to develop new products that are cost-effective, fast, and reliable. We are thrilled to announce the arrival of an amazing new line of switches, cameras and other network equipment that are designed to meet the needs of businesses of all sizes. Read on and see what’s new in Fastcabling.

2.5G Switches to Future-proof Your Enterprise Network


Running a business often requires heavy data transfer. With companies storing their data on the cloud, relying more and more on video conferences, and regularly sharing large files with clients and partners, using a 2.5G switch can definitely help you upgrade to a faster and future-proof network without a single bottleneck. FC has launched two 2.5G switches #5538-17 and #5538-69 to provide the necessary bandwidth for network devices such as NAS stations, 2.5G PCIe adapters, WiFi 6 routers and desktop computers to run at their designated speeds. Moreover, 2.5G switches can work with the existing CAT5e cables, so home users and business owners can easily cater to their urgent needs for higher bandwidth connections without replacing all of the legacy Ethernet cabling.


Long-Range PoE+ Solutions for Surveillance Systems


One of the biggest challenges for business owners and home users when it comes to installing new IP cameras is the distance. As previously said, PoE has a standard distance limit of 100 meters, whether for PoE, PoE+, or PoE++. Fastcabling has recently introduced two long-range PoE solutions to help you deploy PoE at extended distances.

• 24-Port Long-Range PoE+ Switch

Compared with #6320-24 and #6320-48, this 24-port long-range PoE+ switch can support long-range connectivity on all PoE ports, which is particularly useful if you have a large office space or if you need to connect IP cameras that are located over long distances. It comes with a DIP switch to extend your PoE+ signal up to 250M at 10Mbps (ports #1-16), and it also supports transmission of longer distances (≤500M) at 100Mbps on ports #17-24 when connected to a PoE extender. Additionally, it can connect up to 24 devices at a time, perfect for deployment in offices, factory floors, data centers, etc.

• 500M Long-Range PoE+ Extension Kit

This kit contains 2×4-port long-range PoE+ switches, delivering high-speed connectivity over long distances and providing max. power outputs of 30W for edge PoE devices. You can extend easily the distance to 500 meters without involving any PoE extenders, which significantly reduces failure points and electrical sparks along the way. As there is only data transmission between two switches, system stability is guaranteed in explosive atmospheres. Moreover, it also simplifies network management, allowing the administrator to control and monitor the PDs from a centralized point.


Ethernet Extension Kit to Extend Your Network over 300M


Fastcabling developed a waterproof Ethernet extension kit to extend your network outdoors. Designed with a durable IP66-rated enclosure, this waterproof Ethernet extender is resistant to harsh weather conditions such as rain, snow, and extreme temperatures. Moreover, by daisy-chaining two extenders, you can effectively reach a distance of 300M at a transmission speed of up to 100 Mbps. And a power injector is also included to power the extender, which eliminates the need for wiring a new cable for a power source since power and data can be delivered to the Ethernet extender simultaneously.


Rugged Switches for Outdoor and Industrial Applications


FC has introduced a new type of L2+ outdoor PoE switches that accept DC and solar power (36-60V) simultaneously. It’s manufactured and tested to meet the industrial standards for operation even in applications that require the highest level of reliability. Featuring advanced ERPS support, this outdoor PoE switch ensures optimum network availability and minimizes downtime with a recovery time of less than 20 milliseconds. Additionally, our research team also developed a brand new industrial managed PoE switch to provide continuous network connectivity and uninterrupted power supply even in the hardest environments. It’s designed to regulate fluctuating voltage and supply standard PoE to solar power systems. It provides various L2+ features, including VLAN, link aggregation, LACP, etc., to help you manage and maintain the industrial network more easily.


60/90W PoE Media Converters for Fiber Connectivity


These PoE media converters (#5850-69 and #5850-72) offer a significant improvement over our previous 30W model. Compliant with the IEEE802.3bt standard, they can provide a maximum power of up to 60W and 90W respectively. What’s more, with the added benefit of an included power supply unit, you’ll also save a lot on installation costs. With our 60W and 90W PoE media converters, you can expect lightning-fast data transfer speeds, seamless connectivity, and superior performance over long distances. Furthermore, they support both wall and DIN-Rail mounting, ensuring a neat and organized setup. Whether you’re running a small business or a large enterprise, you can rely on our products to meet your needs.


IP Cameras to Enable All-round Security


For those looking for high-quality IP cameras, we’ve developed a wide range of 5MP/8MP PoE cameras that come with motorized zoom, varifocal and fixed lenses. These cameras are perfect for outdoor installations and provide excellent image quality both day and night. And they are equipped with advanced human detection functions which allow security cameras to distinguish between human presence and other moving objects, such as animals or cars, and alert security personnel to potential threats. A significant amount of work can be done by human detection, such as people counting, pedestrian detection and gender classification. In addition, Fastcabling has also developed an IR PoE turret camera that supports dual lighting systems. Apart from the infrared LEDs, this camera also contains a PIR sensor that activates a powerful white light when someone enters its detection zone.



Smart Home Cameras Giving You Peace of Mind


One of the biggest benefits of using a smart home camera is being able to know what’s going on while you’re away. FC has launched a collection of indoor cameras that enable you to monitor the interior of your home via live or recorded video. Some of their distinguishing features include remote monitoring, 2.4 GHz WiFi connectivity, infrared night vision, push notifications, two-way audio, and SD card recording. First, there is the PIR-shaped camera that is designed to blend in with the home’s decor and provide round-the-clock surveillance for your home without being obtrusive. Additionally, there are mini WiFi cameras that can be placed in discreet locations and still provide high-quality video and audio. Another unique option is a dome-shaped camera, which can be installed on the ceiling and provide a horizontal field of view of 76°.



Surge Protective Device to Improve System Reliability


To protect your network from power surges, we’ve developed a surge protective device that is designed to protect your devices from power surges and other electrical disturbances. This device is perfect for protecting your valuable equipment from damage caused by lightning strikes or other power surges. It can offer 2.5kV surge protection for your home and other commercial applications. This surge protector is made from flame-retardant materials, so it will not pose any additional fire hazards. It supports a rapid response time of less than 25ns helps to minimize the risk of damage to your valuable equipment. Moreover, this protector also provides an extra level of protection with a built-in fuse protector.



MPPT Solar Charge Controllers to Optimize Energy Harvest


Fastcabling has designed two types of MPPT solar charge controllers (20A/40A) to maximize the energy produced by your solar panels and prevent your battery from discharging. The new MPPT solar charge controllers can contribute to 15-20% higher efficiency than a PWM controller with a maximum conversion rate of no less than 95% (tracking efficiency >99.9%). Another big update is the addition of a digital display, making it easier for you to keep track of how much power your solar panels are generating, and how much power is being used by your devices. And we have made it rugged enough to withstand the elements. And they are compatible with various battery types, including gel (default), AGM, liquid, and lithium.
