The Distribution 2.0 provides connectivity to a Gigabit Ethernet backbone. The module includes eight (8) managed PoE ports, two (2) Non-PoE Ports and four (4) Single Mode Fibre Ports to enable a range of solutions and network topologies.

The Distribution 2.0 can actively manage 240W (at 25°C) of total Power over Ethernet (PoE) supply across the various Ethernet ports. This enables a large range of high power consuming PoE devices to be simultaneously connected.

When combined with NLT Access Points, we can achieve strong and reliable WiFi coverage in underground mines, tunnels and heavy industrial facilities. NLT’s pre-terminated rugged fibre connects multiple Distribution 2.0’s to form a redundant network topology.

The Distribution 2.0 can easily integrate with SCADA systems, HMI systems and other data acquisition systems. It supports MEF service delivery and timing over packet solutions for IEEE 1588 and synchronous Ethernet. Combined with the small footprint and robust construction, the Distibution 2.0 is ideal for the most critical industrial applications.


Eight 10/100/1000 Mbps RJ45 POE Ports

The Distribution 2.0 module boasts eight managed Power over Ethernet (POE) ports. These high-speed ports can deliver Gigabit Ethernet connectivity, providing substantial bandwidth for many devices. This feature enables the module to power and connect a wide array of high-consuming POE devices, making it exceptionally versatile in a variety of network configurations.

Two 10/100/1000 Mbps RJ45 Non-POE Ports

In addition to the POE ports, the Distribution 2.0 Module includes two Non-POE Ports. These ports expand the module’s functionality, offering additional connectivity options for devices that do not require POE. This inclusion ensures that the Distribution 2.0 Module caters to a broader range of network requirements.

Four Fibre Optic Single Mode Ports

The Distribution 2.0 Module is further equipped with four Single Mode Fibre Ports. These ports are crucial for extending the network’s reach, allowing for long-distance, high-speed data transmission. This capability is particularly beneficial in expansive and challenging environments where reliable communications are vital to worker safety.

Total POE Budget of 200W at 25 C or 160W at 40C

The Distribution 2.0 can actively manage a total POE supply of 240W at 25°C, making it a powerhouse in energy distribution. This high POE budget allows the module to support numerous devices simultaneously, even those with high power demands, without compromising performance.

52 Gbps Switching Capacity

With a staggering 52 Gbps switching capacity, the Distribution 2.0 Module handles massive data throughput. This feature ensures that the network can manage large volumes of data seamlessly, making it ideal for environments with intensive data communication needs.

Optional Battery Backup Power

An optional battery backup power feature adds to the Distribution 2.0 Module’s resilience. This ensures uninterrupted network operation even during power outages, making it an invaluable asset in maintaining critical communications in underground mining and tunnelling environments.

Network Management Capabilities

The Distribution 2.0 Module’s network management capabilities are comprehensive. It can seamlessly integrate with SCADA, HMI, and other data acquisition systems. Supporting MEF service delivery and timing over packet solutions for IEEE 1588 and synchronous Ethernet, the Distribution 2.0 Module is well-suited for complex mining applications where precise timing and control are necessary.

IP67 Protected Enclosure

Housed in an IP67-protected enclosure, the Distribution 2.0 Module is designed to withstand harsh underground mining conditions. This robust construction ensures the Distribution 2.0 Module is resistant to dust and water, making it reliable and durable in underground environments.
