Acromag offers Antaira rugged Ethernet switches and a media converter to complement their remote Ethernet I/O product families.

Wixom, MI – The LNX Series of unmanaged rugged industrial Ethernet switches and IMC media converters are now available from Acromag. Select from a variety of models with up to 8 ports for copper or fiber cabling on fast Ethernet or Gigabit networks. Most units support extended -40 to 75°C operation and include a rugged IP30 aluminum enclosure that resists shock, vibration, and free-fall impacts.

The LNX-800AG model is an 8-port gigabit Ethernet switch. This switch provides eight 10/100/100Tx RJ45 ports with high EFT/ ESD protection and dual power input with reverse power polarity protection. The similar LNX-800A model is an economical 8-port switch for 10/100BaseTx network connections. For fiber optic connections, we offer the LNX-0702G gigabit Ethernet switch that provides two dual-rate 100/1000Fx SFP slots and five copper 10/100/1000Tx ports. Plug-in SFP transceivers offer a cost-effective solution to accommodate single and multi-mode communication. The LNX-802AG model provides two single or multi-mode gigabit fiber Ethernet ports plus six 10/100/1000Tx ports. Another option is the IMC-100A fiber media converter that connects between 10/100Base-Tx and 100Base-Fx cabling to extend the distance of your network, add flexibility and improve performance. All switches include auto MDI/MDI-X function, store-and-forward switching architecture, and a five-year warranty.
