MilSource Announces Addition to Line of Board-level Ruggedized Switches

  • February 1, 2018

    New 14 port ultra-compact, fully managed MILTECH 914 delivers compact density and L2+ feature set for military and rugged applications

    LOS ANGELES, Calif – February 1, 2018 – MilSource today announced the availability of Techaya’s MILTECH 914, a cost-effective, military-grade, managed gigabit Ethernet switch on board (GESoB) that has the most compact footprint available on the market today, at just 125mm (L) x 95(W) x 20(H), including connectors & hardware.

    Building on the popularity of the industry’s only ruggedized, managed GESoB on the market today, the MILTECH 919, the MILTECH 914 expands port density from 8 up to 14 triple speed (10/100/1000Mbps) ports. This unique switch is perfect for unmanned vehicles, robots, and industrial applications that need to support a variety of networked devices. Advanced network features include static routing, VLANS, traffic prioritization (QoS), bandwidth aggregation, and security at both port and board level.

    “The MILTECH 914 is a great solution to connect sensors, targeting systems and compute platforms that must operate in extreme environments while being hyper-sensitive to SWaP-C (size, weight, power and cost) in its design,” said Ronen Isaac, general manager of MilSource, the exclusive distributor of Techaya MILTECH products in the United States. “Some of those applications could include UAVs, UUVs, sensor pods and industrial machinery.”

    With a conformal coating, the MILTECH 914 stands up to extreme vibration and environmental elements while rated to work in temperatures from -45.C to +75.C. It complies to MILSTD­810F/G/GM when housed in an appropriate enclosure. With next-generation flat cable connectors that lock and screw down and 6-19VDC power, the MILTECH 914 easily mates with other board-level compute platforms and power systems.
