304TX | Unmanaged Ethernet Switches

The Red Lion N-TRON 304TX is an unmanaged four port Industrial Ethernet Switch. It is housed in a ruggedized DIN-RAIL enclosure, and is designed for use in industrial data acquisition, control, and Ethernet I/O applications.

It provides four RJ-45 auto sensing 10/100BaseTX ports. All of the ports are full/half duplex capable. The 304TX auto negotiates the speed and flow control capabilities of the TX copper port connection, and configures itself automatically. The 304TX is auto sensing, so there is no need to make extensive wiring changes if upgrades are made to host computers, plant systems, or Ethernet I/O modules.

The switching fabric simply scales up or down automatically to match network environments. These switches support up to 4,000 MAC addresses, enabling them to support extremely sophisticated and complex network architectures. The 304TX is an ideal candidate for upgrading existing hubs and repeaters, in order to provide increased bandwidth and determinism by virtually eliminating network collisions.

It provides a cost effective solution while maintaining the plug & play simplicity of an unmanaged hub. The 304TX simplifies plant wiring by eliminating the need to bring data acquisition and control network connections back to a climate controlled environment. It has extended operating environmental specifications to meet the harsh needs of industrial environments. For cost savings and convenience the network switch can be DIN-RAIL mounted alongside Ethernet I/O or other Industrial Equipment. The unique compact size provides a small footprint, conserving space in the most critical dimension.

The 304TX can also be panel mounted if so desired. To increase reliability, the 304TX contains redundant power inputs. LED's are provided to display power on/off status as well as the link status and activity of each port.

N-VIEW OPC PORT MONITORING (With -N Option Only) The N-TRON N-View OLE for Process Control (OPC) Server Software can be combined with popular HMI software packages to add network traffic monitoring, trending and alarming to any application using N-TRON switches configured with the N-View option.
N-TRON's N-View Server collects 41 different traffic variables per port and 5 system level variables per switch. This information can provide a complete overview of the network load, service quality, and packet traffic. OPC client software can use N-View OPC Server data to resolve network problems quickly and improve system reliability.
