IDEC eight-port unmanaged ethernet switch
IDEC Corporation has added the SX5E-HU085B eight-port unmanaged industrial ethernet switch to its product portfolio.
The QoS function in the SX5E unmanaged switch automatically guarantees priority for ethernet/IP packets. For instance, a programmable logic controller (PLC) communicating with other intelligent automation devices using ethernet/IP will receive precedence over other general traffic. QoS can be turned on/off with a single external DIP switch to give the user flexibility.
This switch operates at 10 and 100 megabit per second, with auto negotiation of speed and full or half duplex mode, and every port automatically detects and adjusts for straight-through or crossover cable connections. Store-and-forward technology ensures each communication frame is received into memory and CRC-checked for integrity before forwarding it to the destination.
With a rugged metal housing that is IP30 rated, the switch can operate at temperatures ranging from -40 to 75°F, and it is designed with electrical noise resistance. The switch can be mounted on standard 35 millimetre DIN rail, or panel-mounted using an accessory direct mounting bracket. The switch is carries approvals for UL508, CE, RoHS, and FCC.
