517FX | Unmanaged Ethernet Switches

The Red Lion N-TRON 517FX Industrial Ethernet Switch offers exceptional performance and ease of use. It is ideally suited for connecting Ethernet-enabled industrial and/or security equipment and can be optionally configured with advanced Ethernet communication management functions. The 517FX is designed for use in harsh industrial environments. It is housed in a rugged DIN-rail-mounted steel enclosure and can be optionally panel or rack mounted with available mounting kits. The switch comes standard with extended temperature rating, extended shock and vibration specifications, redundant power inputs, and a high MTBF (greater than 2M hours). This switch is easy to use, as it requires no setup unless the advanced port functions are utilized. The six 10/100BaseTX ports are auto sensing and auto configuring. Each copper port automatically negotiates maximum speed and performance by default. The fiber optic port supports full 200Mb/s communications via 100BaseFX. Bi-color LEDs are provided to display the link status, link speed and activity of each port as well as power on/off status. The 517FX supports up to 4,000 MAC addresses and uses advanced IEEE 802.3 Fast Ethernet 10/100BaseTX switching technology to eliminate network collisions and increase network determinism. A high-speed processor and backplane allow full-wire speed capability on all ports simultaneously.

The 517FX-A offers several management functions that can be easily configured using the COM Port
(DB 9 connector located on the right side of the switch).

 IGMP Snooping: Internet Group Management Protocol allows the N-Tron switch to intelligently forward and filter multicast traffic.

 VLAN: Virtual Local Area Network allows switch segmentation in order to create two or more separate local area network domains.

 QoS: Quality of Service streamlines network operation by managing packet priority.

 Trunking: Trunking (aggregation) enables multiple physical ports to be linked together and function as one uplink to another identically configured trunking-capable switch.

 Port Mirroring: Port mirroring allows traffic on one port to be duplicated and sent to a designated mirror port. -Used to monitor Ethernet traffic on the designated source port using the assigned mirror port.

N-VIEW OPC PORT MONITORING (With -A or -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.
