Industrial Ethernet Switch handles harsh environments.

Five-port Model 758-500 automatically determines and remembers where Ethernet device is located and routes messages only through appropriate port. This minimizes network loading and enables true deterministic communications over Ethernet. Switch works over temperature range of -40 to 85Â-ºC, and runs directly on dc power already available in control cabinets, eliminating need for ac outlet...
