The N-Tron® 7026TX and 7026TX-AC fully managed Industrial Ethernet Switches deliver expanded port offerings, including gigabit capability, in a standard 1U rackmount form factor. Loaded with a powerful combination of twenty-four (24) 10/100BaseTX copper ports and two (2) gigabit full duplex SFP ports, the 7026TX series is designed for high-traffic industrial environments including process control, Ethernet I/O, data acquisition and other mission-critical applications. Select the model based on input power source the 7026TX uses DC power; the 7026TX-AC accepts high-voltage AC or DC power. Advanced N-Ring technology provides expanded capacity, detailed fault diagnostics and fast ~30ms healing times in rings composed of N-Tron fully managed switches. The integrity of the N-Ring is continually monitored for error conditions. If a fault is detected, the ring converts to a daisy chain topology and restores communications within ~30ms. For convenience, users can easily access a detailed ring map and fault location chart through the ring manager's browser or the OPC server. Each N-Ring accommodates up to 250 fully-managed N-Tron switches. N-Link easily connects multiple N-Rings, creating additional pathways to critical applications and increasing overall network resiliency.
