A pre-configured ethernet switch designed for AV system integrations, perfect for fixed installations.

N

Tailored for AV industry

Pre-configured settings that are common in the AV industry, such as QoS and IGMP snooping.

N

Easy set-up

Easy group function with pre-configured VLAN’s for a quick set-up (without IT knowledge).

N

Ideal for fixed installations

Designed for fixed installations in buildings, theaters, cruise ships, theme parks …

N

Converged networking

Transfer multiple protocols (Dante™, RAVENNA/AES67®, ArtNet, MANet 1&2, sACN,Q-LAN …)

N

Ultimate link redundancy

RlinkX redundancy protocol automatically takes over signal in milliseconds in case of a link failure.

N

With or without PoE+

Don’t worry about power plugs anymore. PoE+ powers-up all compatible devices within the network.

Focus on being creative again.

Stop wasting time on programming your network or spending money on IT consultants to do it for you. With Luminex GigaCore switches and only some basic AV knowledge, you can do it all by yourself in just the blink of an eye. Now you can finally focus on your core business as an AV technician or designer: “being creative”!

Same technology, different applications.

The GigaCore 26i has considerably more ports then all its predecessors in the GigaCore range. This high port density switch (24x RJ45 and 6x SFP) is designed to offer more capacity for large system integrations such as theaters, concert halls, convention centers, sports arenas, studios, cruise ships, theme parks, hotels, houses of worship and other fixed installations.

When distance matters: Fiber to the rescue.

The GigaCore 26i provides users with six SFP cages for Fiber connectivity. Just connect a multimode or single mode Fiber transceiver to each cage and it will enable you to cover greater distances with a total link immunity up to 10km!

Specifications

The GigaCore 26i is a Gigabit Ethernet switch providing a budget friendly solution when port density matters. The unit comes with all the advanced functionalities of the GigaCore Ethernet switches range, in a fully AV-installation oriented package. The unit offers 26 Gigabit ports that are all connected on the front panel. Each port on the switch will have coloured mode led indications which will indicate different properties of the port such as: PoE, redundancy and group membership.
