Safety Approvals

Class 1 Division 2

Class 1 Division Approval Hazardous environments are defined by the National Electrical Code (NEC) as those areas where fire or explosion hazards may exist due to flammable gases or vapor, flammable liquids, combustible dust, or ignitable substances. Electronic products must meet certain requirements and obtain special certifications in order to be used in these environments.


EN50155 Approval EN50155 is an international standard covering electronic equipment used on rolling stock for railway applications. The standard covers aspects of this electronic equipment including temperature, humidity, shock and vibration. Applications include rolling stock, railways, buses, subways, mass rapid transit and other related transportation infrastructure.


EN50121-4 Approval This European Standard specifies limits for emission and immunity and provides performance criteria for signalling and telecommunications (S&T) apparatus (including power supply systems) which may interfere with other apparatus inside the railway environment, or increase the total emissions for the railway environment and so risk causing Electro-Magnetic Interference (EMI) to apparatus outside the railway system.


NEMA-TS2 Approval The NEMA TS2 standard was established by National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) to define safe traffic control and shock. Being certified by NEMA standards prove our reliability and commitment to providing high quality devices for intelligent transportation solutions.

MIL-STD-810 Standard

MIL-STD-810 Standard MIL-STD-810 is a United States Military Standard that emphasizes tailoring an equipment's environmental design and test limits to the conditions that it will experience throughout its service life, and establishing chamber test methods that replicate the effects of environments on the equipment rather than imitating the environments themselves

e13/E13 Approval

e13/E13 Approval e-Mark is the European Common Market, for car and motorcycle spare parts and security products, noise and emissions, are required to act in accordance with the EU. e-Mark certificat by different country, the number granted is different, for example, apply to Luxembourg, the E-Mark logo E13/e13.

EN61000-6-2 / EN61000-6-4

EN61000-6-2 / EN61000-6-4 Approval The standard EN 61000 Part 6 applies to electrical and electronic apparatus intended for use in the industrial locations. Disturbances in the frequency range 0 Hz to 400 GHz are covered.

The intention is to reduce power consumption by 50% or more, while retaining full compatibility with existing equipment.


The Right Support, By the Right People, With the Right Design, At the Right Price

An Industrial Ethernet equipment is installed in harsh environments or mission critical applications. The product chipset controls communications between the processor and external devices, the chipset plays a crucial role in determining system performance.

Ethernet Direct products are engineered with NO compromise on quality. We use “Made in the U.S.A.” chipset to ensure maximum reliability and selected long life quality components as our principle and we offer the real 5-year warranty. Our product’s MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) is calculated based on MIL-HDBK-217 (Military Standards published by the Department of Defense) while most vendors adopt the Bell core / Telcordia (commercial standard) which may yield a higher number. MIL-HDBK reliability prediction is more strict than the commercial standards and Ethernet Direct adheres to our Quality Principle.

At Ethernet Direct, we simply design the right products for you applications and you can always find someone who can talk about your requirements and projects. By partnering with us, you will find the Right Product and deal with the Right People, with the Right Support and offering the Right Price.
