Red Lion 106FX2 Unmanaged Ethernet Switch
The N-TRON® 106FX2 is a low cost, unmanaged six port Industrial Ethernet Switch. It is housed in a hardened, metal, DIN-Rail enclosure, and is designed for use in industrial data acquisition, control, and
Ethernet I/O applications. The Red Lion 106FX2 Industrial Network Switch is designed to solve the most demanding industrial communications requirements while providing high throughput and minimum downtime.
The 106FX2 provides four RJ-45 auto sensing 10/100BaseTX ports, plus two fi ber based Fast Ethernet uplink ports. All TX ports are full/half duplex capable, using leading-edge Ethernet switching technology.
The 106FX2 auto-negotiates the speed and flow control capabilities of the four TX port connections, and configures itself automatically. The two fiber ports are 100BaseFX fi ber optic uplinks utilizing industry
standard ST or SC duplex connectors. Since the TX ports of the 106FX2 are auto sensing, there will be no need to make extensive wiring changes if upgrades are made to the host computers, plant systems,
or Ethernet I/O modules. The switching fabric simply scales up or down automatically to match your specific network environment.
The N-TRON 106FX2 is an ideal candidate for upgrading existing hubs and repeaters to increase bandwidth and determinism by virtually eliminating network collisions. The product also keeps the network affordable, while maintaining the plug & play simplicity of a unmanaged hub. The 106FX2 can simplify plant wiring by eliminating the need to bring data acquisition and control network connections back to a climate controlled environment
