The N-TRON® 524TX Series Industrial Ethernet Switch offers outstanding performance and ease of use. It is ideally suited for connecting Ethernet-enabled industrial and/or security equipment and can be optionally configured with advanced Ethernet communication management functions. The 524TX, designed to operate in industrial environments, is housed in a rugged rackmounted steel enclosure. The switch comes standard with extended temperature rating, extended shock and vibration specs, redundant power inputs and a high MTBF (greater than 1M hours). The 524TX requires no setup unless the advanced port functions are utilized. The twenty-four 10/100BaseTX ports are auto sensing and auto configuring. Each port automatically negotiates for maximum speed and performance by default. Bi-color LEDs are provided to display the link status, link speed and activity of each port as well as power on/off status.
