The series features rugged construction, providing superior durability for mission critical applications in harsh environments.

Red Lion’s unmanaged, IEEE 802.3 layer two network switches provide high-speed connections to multiple devices over Ethernet, without requiring manual configuration. Capable of auto negotiating 10/100Mb networks and half/full duplex communications, these switches avoid performance failures associated with bandwidth congestion, diverse operating speeds or interlinking devices with differing duplex configurations. Additionally, the series is equipped with auto-crossing detection that supports standard and crossover Ethernet cables.

Constructed with hardened metal enclosures, the NT100 series Ethernet switches are UL approved for use in Class I, Division 2 hazardous locations. These switches provide dependable performance in extreme environments, withstanding temperatures between -40 to +70 degrees Celsius. Further, to prevent damaging transients or power failures, the switches are equipped with 16kV port protection and redundant power inputs for continuous network performance.

"With the release of the new NT100 series, Red Lion provides reliable Ethernet switches for very harsh environments," said Jesse Benefiel, Red Lion Product Manager. "The NT100 series was designed to maintain network connectivity in mission critical applications, offering reliable performance for continued business operation."
