Suited for networks with large amounts of data in application using VLANs or multicast routing strategies, the new switch is a data horse that can meet the demands of, say, a smart grid substation network. The product meets IEC 61850 and RoHS compliancy and can be used in high electromagnetic interference (EMI) environments. The switch offers built-in small form-factor pluggable (SFP) ports, providing a choice of fixed 10/100/100 BASE-TX connectivity or fiber SFPs, and has a temperature rating of -40 deg C to 85 deg C.

"Our relationship with Belden has enabled us to step up the pace of technology deliverables as we target the increasingly sophisticated and challenging network applications resulting from the explosion of IP-enabled industrial devices, says Lee House, GarrettCom, general manager.

Other features include a non-blocking switching fabric to provide wire-speed performance on all ports, has an option to configure four ports for Power over Ethernet (POE), uses sealed-box convection cooling and has optional single or dual internal power supplies. Also, the switch can be synchronized via SNTP or IEEE 1588 v2 precision timing, the latter provides accuracy within 30 ns on all ports.
