Industrial Ethernet Switches feature conformal coating.

Press Release Summary:

Operating from -40 to 80°C, Iguana Series includes IUE unmanaged model and IRE redundant ring version with recovery time of less than 300 ms. Units feature MIL-I-46058C standard conformal coating, which is applied to PCBs to prevent damage caused by humidity, moisture, dust, and corrosion. Available for wall or DIN-rail mounting, switches comply with IEEE802.3, 802.3u, and 802.3x and feature automatic MDI/MDI-X crossover. Each port supports 10/100 Mbps speed auto negotiation.

Original Press Release:

Ethernet Direct Features Industrial Conformal Coated Switches Conforming To MIL-I-46058C Standard

Taipei, Taiwan, - Ethernet Direct Corporation, a professional and primary provider of industrial networking and communication solutions, is pleased to announce a series of special designed Industrial Ethernet Switches with conformal coating conforming to MIL-I-46058C standard.

MIL-STD refers to military standards and MIL-I-46058C covers conformal coatings which are suitable for application to printed circuit assemblies by dipping, brushing, spraying, or vacuum deposition. This standard is beneficial in achieving interoperability; ensuring products meet certain requirements, reliability, total cost of ownership and compatibility with logistics systems or defense-related systems.

The Iguana is a series of Industrial Unmanaged and redundant Ethernet Switches that come with extended temperature and conformal coating technology. There are two categories ready which are the IUE models and IRE models. IUE stands for Iguana Unmanaged Ethernet switch, and IRE means Iguana Redundant Ring Ethernet switch. IUE models offer a cost-effective wide temperature unmanaged switching solution while IRE models come with Redundant Ring feature. Both IUE and IRE models have wide operating temperature range of -40 to 80 deg C. Ethernet Direct also offers IUE/IRE models with conformal coating MIL-I-46058C standard, which is a protective coating applied to PCBs to prevent the circuitry from damage caused by humidity, moisture, dust, and corrosion when exposed to extreme environments.
