Compact Ethernet Switches/Media Converters

May 8, 2008
The WAVELine series of Class 1, Div 2 approved unmanaged Industrial Ethernet switches and media converters are offered in new compact housings to provide increased design and installation flexibility.

Designed as compact plug-and-play modules, the series allows for easy creation of Industrial Ethernet networks because no configuration or set up is required, says the vendor. These slim switches feature housings of 22.5mm or 45mm width, while several new port configurations comprised of both RJ45 copper and fiber optic connections provide users greater application flexibly. The following port configurations are available: three RJ45 10/100 ports; three RJ45 10/100 ports and one SC fiber optic port; three RJ45 10/100 ports and one ST fiber optic port; five RJ 45 10/100 ports; six RJ45 10/100 ports and one SC fiber optic port; six RJ45 10/100 ports and one ST fiber optic port; and eight RJ45 10/100 ports The media converters feature Auto Link detection, which monitors the link status on the I/O ports.
