Ethernet Switches and Converters
These industrial-grade switches provide reliable network communications. Select managed or unmanaged models for copper or fiber-optic cables.
Use a media converter to convert between 10/100Base-TX and 100Base-FX cabling. Using a media converter allows you to extend the cabling distance of your 100Base-FX network up to 2 kilometers for multi-mode fiber or 30 kilometers for single-mode fiber.
Rugged industrial Antaira Ethernet switches.
Rugged 5-port industrial-grade Ethernet switches have internal intelligence for fast and easy network installation with auto data rate, flow control, and cross-over. No setup needed if used as a simple switch with Acromag I/O modules.
♦ -25 to 70°C range
♦ 1500V port-to-port isolation
♦ Redundant power support
♦ CE, ATEX, UL/cUL Class 1, Div 2 approvals
Acromag switches are designed for harsh environments. Featuring a rugged IP30 aluminum case, 300,000 hour MTBF, and power supply redundancy, you can depend on Acromag for your network.
With web-based configuration, managed switches ensure easy installation and maintenance. Managed switches also support many powerful Ethernet features sucha s port VLAN, Quality of Service (QoS), Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) Snooping, and failure alarm by relay output.
Self-healing redundant ring capability (recovery time < 300mS)
Critical criteria for industrial applications is the ability to ensure non-stop system operation. Acromag switches employ redundancy to provide a self-recovery mechanism in the revent of a failure. If any length of the primary communication path fails, redundant ring technolgoy allows self-reconfiguration to provide an alternate network path. The ultra-fast recovery time protects mission-critical applicaitons from interruptions and temporary malfunctions.
