Red Lion 308TX Unmanaged 8 Port Ethernet Switch
The N-TRON® 308TX is an unmanaged, four port Industrial Ethernet Switch. It is housed in a ruggedized DIN-RAIL enclosure, and is designed for use in industrial data acquisition, control, and Ethernet I/O applications.
The Red Lion 308TX Industrial Network Switch is designed to meet and exceed the most demanding industrial communication requirements while providing high throughput and minimum downtime.
The 308TX provides eight RJ-45 auto sensing 10/100BaseTX ports. All ports are full/half duplex capable, using state-of-the-art Ethernet switching technology. The 308TX auto-negotiates the speed and low control capabilities of the TX copper port connection, and configures itself automatically.
The 308TX is auto sensing, so there will be no need to make extensive wiring changes if upgrades are made to host computers, plant systems, or Ethernet I/O modules. The switching fabric simply scales up or down automatically to match network environments. The 308TX supports up to 4,000 MAC addresses, enabling these products to support extremely sophisticated and complex network architectures.
The 308TX is an ideal candidate for upgrading existing hubs and repeaters to increase bandwidth and determinism by virtually eliminating network collisions. The product provides a cost effective solution while maintaining the plug & play simplicity of an unmanaged hub.
