Red Lion's N-TRON 524TX Industrial Ethernet Switch provides outstanding 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 524TX switch is designed to operate in industrial environments. It is housed in a rugged DIN-rail-mounted steel enclosure. Optional panel and rack mount kits are available as well. The switch comes standard with extended temperature rating, extended shock and vibration specs, redundant power inputs, and a high MTBF (greater than 2M hours).
This switch requires no setup unless the advanced port functions are utilized. All twenty four of the 10/100BaseTX ports are auto sensing and auto configuring. Each port automatically negotiates for maximum speed and performance by default. 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 524TX 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.
ADVANCED MANAGEMENT FEATURES
The 524TX-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.
