N-Tron Managed Switches Meet CIP Specification.
Red Lion issued a press release today to announce that the latest firmware for our N-Tron® series of NT24k® and 700/7000 (N-Tron Managed Switches) has been certified by ODVA to meet the requirements of the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) specification. With embedded support for CIP, our broad industrial Ethernet switch portfolio provides ease of communication for industrial markets that include manufacturing, automotive, electronics and food and beverage.
Designed for use in process control and industrial automation applications, CIP provides consistent device access that allows a single configuration tool to monitor and configure CIP devices without the need for vendor specific software. Red Lion’s rugged NT24k and 700/7000 managed switches deliver information and configuration access directly to Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs) and Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) through standard CIP messaging.
“CIP is an important tool to communicate across diverse equipment. Compliance certification provides vendor-independent assurance that CIP-enabled products comply with the specification. This certification is just one more reason customers can trust Red Lion to seamlessly connect network infrastructures, linking the wide variety of devices common in today’s industrial environments.” Diane Davis | Red Lion Controls
For applications in extreme environments, check out Red Lion’s N-Tron® series 700 managed industrial Ethernet switches. Our 700 managed industrial Ethernet switches support SNMP, web management, Fast Ethernet and N-View™ monitoring technology. Housed in rugged enclosures, the 700 managed Ethernet switches feature extended shock and vibration specifications, wide operating temperature ratings and best-in-class ring technology, providing 30 ms healing times.
The 700 managed industrial Ethernet switches feature between eight and 16 ports, offering 100Base port speeds. These managed switches provide a combination of copper and fiber ports for maximum flexibility. Available in waterproof IP67 protected enclosures with M12 style connectors, the 700 series switches provide extreme reliability in high moisture/vibration environments.
The N-Tron 700 line of managed industrial Ethernet switches provide uncompromising performance in harsh environments including features like N-Ring™, VLAN, Quality of Service (QoS), port mirroring, IGMP and SNMP. These network management features provide best-in-class visibility and uptime performance.
700 managed industrial Ethernet switches are housed in metal enclosures, and feature a -40° to +85°C operating temperature. With UL Class I, Div. 2 listing, CE, EN50155 and ABS certifications, these switches are built to last in the most demanding environments.
The -N models provide network performance monitoring using N-View monitoring technology, which provides 47 different status points on switch and port conditions and displays that information on a networked computer.
The 700 managed industrial Ethernet switches provide a high level of security utilizing port-based MAC address filtering and SNMPv3 communication protocol to ensure the safest connections.
