Ethernet Switch Saves Space

May 6, 2009
The high-density EISK16 switch, which occupies minimal DIN-rail space (1.6-in. or 41mm) for small areas, is available for $279. 
The plug-and-play EISK16-100T compact switch provides 16 copper 10/100Mbps ports in a box smaller than a standard EIS 8-port unit. Encased in a metal enclosure, it is designed to provide reliable connectivity for Ethernet automation systems in a cost-effective manner, backed by a five-year warranty. When powered  up, the unit will auto-configure each port for data rates at 10 or 100 Mbps and straight-through or crossover cable requirements. These ports support half-duplex operation with backpressure flow control or full-duplex operation with PAUSE control.Contemporary Control Systems Inc.www.ccontrols.com630.963.7070, Ext. 116
