IIOT Ethernet Switches

The IIoT will be the revolution in the manufacturing industry. It can greatly improve connectivity, efficiency, scalability, time and cost saving for the industrial organizations.

The most important thing, IIoT networks of intelligent devices provides industrial organizations to break open data silos and connect all of their data and processes from factory to offices. Trough IIoT data analyzing also helps business development to clarify how their enterprise is doing, which makes them to do the better decisions.

The IIoT is considered to be an up-going trend in the future.

MasTec carries a broad range of Industrial Grade managed and unmanaged Ethernet Switches and Fiber Switches.

Between the six manufacturing companies listed here, you will find exactly what you require for your industrial site and many IT sites also.

If you need POE we have a growing selection.

If you need Ethernet to Modbus gateways, we can provide quite a range to choose from.

Many of our Wireless Routers and Gateways also container ethernet switches.

Galvanic isolation available as an option without derating the simulator port data
Three different operation modes:
a) Programmable Grid Simulator
b) Remote operated 4Q AC voltage amplifier
c) Electronic AC-load featuring programmable RLC load impedance

By combining Regatron DC power supplies with a grid simulator, a complete model of a Smart Grid can be built up. Thus, intensive studies on the dynamic behaviour of grids are made possible.
Within such a system, TopCon unidirectional DC power sources take over the role of “additive” energy sources like wind-, solar-, hydro- and biological power generators as also of fuel cells and on. TopCon bidirectional DC power sources are best suited for the role of electrical power storage elements as also as simulators for power consumption.
As a third element, the grid tied path may be equipped with TC.ACS 4-quadrant Grid Simulator, which is able to simulate various public grid situations up to the ultimate situation of a so-called “Islanding Situation”.

High Power Simulators & AC and DC Supplies

REGATRON has researched, developed and sold programmable power supplies and power electronics for 50 years. Regatron products bear the Swiss characteristics of quality, accurateness and creativity.

REGATRON was first on the world market introducing all-digital fully programmable electrical Power Supplies and has attended the market since many decades very closely. The product portfolio therefore is well matched to the market’s requirements and offers among other features one prominent quality: The modular power topology.

Ingenious data link techniques allow not only to operate individual units in parallel in order to extend the power system up to MW levels, but even mixed-mode of series connected units in parallel arrays and vice-versa is possible. By this, a maximum flexibility with respect to changing requirements and future expansion is given.


REGATRON Steps Ahead with a Multifunctional HMI for TC.ACS Grid Simulator Systems
Innovative touch-screen technology offers you the entire grid simulation data on screen at a glance. It has never been easier to keep track.

Medical Newsletter - September 2020
Health care is a vitally important aspect of everyone’s life. It is a constantly evolving industry with huge pressures driving its development. The gathering and communication of information is a key player in the advancement of medical science and technology. Sending this information wirelessly allows for greater freedom of movement, reduces clutter and removes surfaces capable of transporting bacteria and viruses.  

With the explosion of mobile computing, first precipitated by smart phones, health care monitoring and medical diagnosis is now open to all. Information about a persons health can be collected by affordable wearables and then transmitted to the cloud where big data algorithms utilise it for scientific research and-or the wearers personal benefit.

For most wearables the limiting factor of any design is space. Which is why LM provides the Bluetooth® low energy LM936 System In Package powered by an ARM Cotrex-M3:

The LM936 is a compact, highly integrated Bluetooth® low energy system-in-package (SiP) module. The LM936 SiP includes an embedded low energy antenna, 24 MHz clock, and 512 Kb EEPROM, so only a minimal set of external components is needed to create a standalone low energy device.


Bluetooth® v4.1 specification
14 mA Current Consumption (at 0 dBm Tx Output Power)
IC Antenna Onboard (Peak Gain = 0.5 dBi)
9 dBm Tx Output Power (Max) and -92 dBm Rx Sensitivity
Over-the-Air Upgrade (OTAU) available
Application Firmware Support
IoT Applications available including Serial over GATT,
Eddystone™ Beacon and Cloud Sensor & Cloud Collector
Fully integrated module with no additional components requiredI2C and UART
9 digital and 3 analogue I/O (10-bit ADC)
Wake-up interrupt and Watchdog timer
4 PWM channels
22mm x 10.11mm x 2.50mm
SMT Side and Bottom Pads for easy production
RoHS, REACH and WEEE Compliant Solution


Bluetooth Serial Port Profile
LM’s Bluetooth® to Serial adapters have been used within health care to enable wireless RS232 and RS485 cable-replacement solutions for almost a decade now.

The resilient frequency-hopping nature of Bluetooth® and the pass-through and fully direction independent aspects of our LM048 and LM058 Bluetooth® serial adapters have allowed customers to utilise them to carry both legacy and modern serial protocols.

The LM4xx series of serial modules have also been used to extend the connectivity of existing products where a more integrated solution was required. For many of these projects LM has provided firmware modifications to facilitate the particular requirements of an existing system.


Constant updating of Firmware for global interpolority and compatibility
Multiple power options, 9th Pin, AC mains PSU and USB power cable
CSR BC04 EDR 2.0+Chipset
Windows configuration software
PSU and gender changers supplied
Growing and improving AT command set
