Industrial Networking Solutions

Oil & Gas

Industrial environments present much harsher conditions than those found in typical office environments. They have extreme temperatures, humidity, amounts of dirt and soot and corrosive materials that can ruin IT equipment. They can also contain devices such as motors and mechanical switches, which cause a large amount of electromagnetic interference (EMI). Black Box has a large range of solutions designed to perform in the toughest environments:

  • Hardened network products ensure network performance and minimize downtime
  • Environmental monitoring systems keep you informed of conditions in your industrial workspace
  • KVM technology optimizes operator workflows and declutters your workspace

Industrial Control Systems/Remote SCADA Monitoring

Black Box solutions allow operators to remotely access computers, peripheral devices, data sources and control systems.
