PWVIA DIN Mount Ethernet Switch

PWVIA DIN Mount Ethernet Switch, or VIA™ Gigabit Ethernet Switch with PoE, is part of the VIA series of Ethernet Switches that are designed specifically for lighting, sound and video Ethernet switching in all entertainment production systems, including live shows. Unlike switches designed and marketed for office and communication applications, VIA switches are convection cooled and ship unmanaged, pre-configured and optimized for entertainment network use. Advanced management features, including VLAN Support, EAPS Ring Protection, IGMP, and more are enabled and configured through the freely downloadable Pathscape software.The VIA DIN-mount Ethernet Switches are compact and DIN-mountable, suitable for permanent installations.

There are two models of PWVIA DIN Mount Ethernet Switches by Pathway Connectivity:

VIA16

VIA, DIN-mount, 16-Ports, RJ45 Connector, Empty SFP Slots, PoE Enabled 

  • Part Number: PWVIA DIN P16 RJ45 SFPSLOT POE
  • Legacy Name: VIA16 PoE Ethernet Switch, 16-port, eDIN
  • Legacy Part Number: P6716

This is a 10/100 Ethernet switch with sixteen copper ports and two gigabit mini-GBIC ports for SFP modules. 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.


6708 VIA8

Title Description
.pdf Pathway Connectivity Pathport C-Series at National Music Forum in Wroclaw, Poland The National Forum of Music (NFM), a brand-new, state-of-the-art concert venue in the heart of Wroclaw, opened on September 4th, 2015. The National Forum of Music is the largest multi-purpose center in Lower Silesia, Poland. The main aim of the center was to create a public institution comprising the Ministry of Culture and National heritage. The NFM needed to come up with a solution to help light all these separated theatres and rooms, without the hassle of cables and wiring. They chose City Theatrical wireless DMX solutions and Pathway Connectivity PATHPORT® C Series nodes in the NFM installation. “In our current situation with the National Forum of Music, we often come across the necessity of conversion of commonly used Ethernet signal into the Traditional DMX standard. The Ethernet signal simultaneously transmits multiple DMX signals and the Pathway node can isolate the desired DMX universe without the necessity of using extra power supplies- the power is being supplied by Ethernet due to POE option. The pathway node is extremely useful to use, the setting is configured from simple software from any computer. The greatest thing about the Pathway C-Series node is that it works impeccably no matter what project we’ve worked on.”
