Ethernet Switches for Harsh Industrial Environments

N-TRON Corporation, a leading manufacturer of rugged industrial Ethernet networking products, today introduced two additions to its successful unmanaged 100 Series product line.

This content was submitted directly to this website by the supplier.

Both the five-port 105TX-SL and 16-port 116TX models feature hardened industrial technology in an ultra-slim format. The 100 Series includes the companyfs most affordable models and offers products optimized for plug & play applications in harsh industrial environments.

At only 1" wide, the 105TX-SL easily fits into limited spaces. While small in form only, the 105TX-SL features robust functionality. The switch includes five 10/100BaseTX copper ports capable of simultaneous full-wire speed performance and up to 1.0 Gb/s throughput processing. Other features include store-and-forward technology, auto negotiation, auto sensing speed and flow control.

With sixteen 10/100BaseTX copper ports, the 116TX offers the highest port count available in the 100 Series. Like all models in the family, the new product is simple to use. Its plug & play operation enables the unit to intuitively configure itself on the network and to perform speed and flow control functions on the fly. The 116TX provides up to 3.2Gb/s throughput with simultaneous full-wire speed on all connections.

N-Tron products are recognized for their universal ruggedness and extreme reliability. Both models carry exceptional MTBF ratings of more than two million hours and provide expanded tolerances to shock, vibration, temperature fluctuations and noise.common elements in factory floor control networks, utilities, wastewater treatment, wind turbines, rail car, intelligent traffic control and transportation applications. The new units feature metal DIN-rail enclosures, redundant power inputs, and ESD/surge protection diodes at each port as well as LED indicators for link status and activity.

Pricing and Availability
The 105TX-SL and 116TX are available through N-TRONfs worldwide network of distributors and sales partners. For additional information, please consult the N-TRON website at www.n-tron.com.

N-TRON Corporation, a leading manufacturer of rugged industrial networking products, today added a new multiport model to its fully-managed 7000 Series. The new 7026TX offers a powerful combination of twenty-four (24) 10/100BaseTX copper interfaces and two (2) gigabit expansion ports in a sleek 1U rackmount enclosure. The model was designed to provide maximum functionality in the small footprint of an open-frame or cabinet rack.

N-Tronfs 7000 Series ranks among the companyfs most robust product lines. All 7000 models are designed with the companyfs signature N-Ring ring technology featuring N-Link redundancy and N-View OPC server. N-Ring technology provides expanded ring capacity, detailed fault diagnostics and fast ~30ms healing times. Multiple N-Rings. each containing up to 250 N-Tron managed devices.can be quickly connected through N-Link, forming redundant communication pathways and increasing overall network resiliency. The N-View OPC server easily interfaces with industrystandard HMI software, enabling integration of switch information. The 7026TX provides a range of convenient auto-sensing and auto-configuring processes at setup. Fully-managed features include SD configuration backup, port security, local IP addressing, trunking, port mirroring, VLAN, IGMP snooping and querying, CIP messaging, QoS, LLDP, DHCP and RSTP.

The 7026TX is designed for reliability and provides extended tolerances to vibration, temperature fluctuations and noise. The new switch includes redundant power inputs, ESD/surge protection diodes at each port and LED indicators for link status and activity. The unit carries a rating of one million MTBF.

Pricing and Availability
The 7026TX is available through N-TRONfs worldwide network of distributors and sales partners.
