N-Connex enables a range of solutions that make use of WiFi (802.11) and Ethernet connectivity. These include voice communications, high speed data communications, control and automation, asset tracking, video surveillance and condition monitoring to name a few. N-Connex supports open standard 802.11 WiFi, meaning it will work with any 802.11 open standard devices such as IP Phones, Smart Phones, Laptops, Tags and any WiFi device.
Modular & Expandable
N-Connex modules enable you to choose the functions and network configuration that meet your needs. Additional modules can easily be added to an existing installation to support growth.
The current range of N-Connex modules enables network access, power and battery backup, alarms, control and monitoring. New modules are continually being added due to the unique design that supports third party electronics and hardware.
Ruggedised & Fit for Purpose
N-Connex has been specifically designed to withstand harsh environments and extreme treatment. Materials and finishes have been deliberately chosen to be hard wearing and high impact resistant.
The module shape has been designed to protect both the receptacles and the cable connector zone underneath the units. The end cap handle feature also provides cable management when the units are installed.
Easy Deployment & Maintenance
N-Connex’ award winning design makes installation and maintenance easy. The N-Connex modules hook easily onto an expandable custom rail system and then lock in place using a thumb screw. Units can also be mounted in a stand-alone configuration.
Pre-terminated Ethernet and Fibre cables ensure deployment and maintenance activities can be conducted expediently. Simple status indicators identify any issues. These features enable semi-skilled people to provide rapid first line support for your Network.
Plug & Play
N-Connex modules simply ‘plug & play’ using Power over Ethernet (PoE) and pre-terminated CAT6 Ethernet and fibre cables. All receptacles maintain the overall IP67 rating and are identified using clear and concise product graphics.
N-Connex’ CAT6 Network Extenders and Fibre Joiners are easy to use and eliminate the need to terminate or splice in harsh environments. These devices ensure N-Connex networks can cover large mines, long tunnels or extensive industrial facilities.
