GARRETTCOM ANNOUNCES MAGNUM CONTROL ROOM ETHERNET PRODUCTS FOR INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION MARKET
GarrettCom Targets Rapidly Expanding Industrial Ethernet Market with Flexible, High-reliability Hubs, Switches, Media Converters
January 31, 2002, Fremont, Calif. - GarrettCom, Inc., rolled out a comprehensive series of Ethernet products today targeted at industrial control rooms and factory floor applications. GarrettCom's Magnum Control Room Products combine the flexibility and breadth of an office line of products with the extended operating temperature, noise immunity, and power features required for industrial automation and control markets.
These off-the-shelf industrial Ethernet products benefit from their relationship to the GarrettCom mainstream Magnum line for specialty Ethernet applications. Their flexibility and cost-effectiveness are unparalleled in mainstream industrial Ethernet lines, and their pricing is competitive with office LAN solutions rather than the more expensive industrial LAN solutions.
GarrettCom provides built-in fiber ports on hubs and switches, which provide noise immunity and grounding protection for noisy industrial environments, as well as "future protection" with fiber cabling that can support gigabit network speeds as control and automation applications evolve to demand higher performance. GarrettCom provides added flexibility by offering one of the widest varieties of connector types from an Ethernet provider - office or industrial.
