Designed to mount to 35mm DIN rail, this compact switch is engineered specifically for sACN data distribution using Pathport Gateways, Choreo controllers, Cognito consoles and NSB or Vignette architectural wall stations.

Management features, such as VLANs, DHCP and IGMP multicast filtering, are configured with the free Pathscape software. Two gigabit SFP receptacles allow you to connect to larger networks with advanced features such as RSTP and EAPS for complete redundant backup.

  • 35mm DIN rail mountable
  • Features including IGMP querier and snooping, DHCP per VLAN, Dante-compliant QoS option, Art-Net to sACN conversion
  • Silent operation - fanless, convection-cooled design
  • Acts as PoE (Power-over-Ethernet) source to connected devices, up to 15W per port, on ports 1 through 8
  • Settable properties include Switch Name, Port Name, IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, VLAN configuration, Link speed, PoE allocation, DHCP pool, IGMP filtering
  • Reported properties include PoE usage, Serial Number, MAC address, firmware version, connected devices (LLDP compliant), link status, bandwidth usage
  • Sixteen RJ45 ports support 10/100/1000Base-T speeds
  • Two mini-GBIC ports for SFP or SFP+ fiber transceivers (1000Base-LX, 1000Base-SX, 10GBase-SR or 10GBase-LR)
  • Supports SFP+ 10Gbit Direct-Attach cables, both active and passive
  • 20-50 VDC power input, 10 W maximum (Switch Only)
  • 48-50 VDC power input, 130 W maximum (including 120 W for up to 8 PoE devices)
  • Operating conditions: 14°F to 118°F (-10°C to +48°C), 5-95% relative humidity, non-condensing
  • IEEE 802.1AB Link Layer Discovery Protocol
  • IEEE 802.3af—Power over Ethernet
  • California Title 1.81.26, Security of Connected Devices
  • 1.05 lbs (0.47 kg)
  • 6.25”W x 2.9”D x 4”H (159mm x 74mm x 102mm) 

The VIA8 allows the end user to provide a fiber adaptor. The adaptors are typically referred to as an SFP (Small Form Pluggable transceiver) or mini-GBIC (gigabit interface converter).

Pathway part number 6799 is an SFP 850nm Ethernet Optical Transceiver that is compatible with VIA12, VIA16 and VIA8, capable of 1Gbps. Part number 6798 is a dual-rate SFP+ 850nm Ethernet Optical Transceiver capable of 10Gbps, compatible with the VIA8 and VIA12 model 675X. These fiber links can go up to 550 m (1800 feet) without issue. In some situations, the run lengths may lead you to choose a different SFP. Follow these guidelines when choosing your SFP:

  1. The form factor must be stated as SFP or SFP+ (not XENpack or others).
  2. The fiber connector is LC Duplex.
  3. The SFP must support Optical Gigabit Ethernet (typically referred to as 1000BASE-SX, 1000BASE-LX, 10GBase-SR or 10GBase-LR)
  4. The SFP must match the type of fiber installed, either Single Mode or Multi-Mode.
  5. The SFP must support the distance required, which in turn determines the optical wavelength. 850nm is typically used for runs up to 550m, while 1310nm is typically used for runs up to 10km.

We strongly recommend each end of the connection use an identical SFP.
