New HV Switches expand product choices
N-TRON's HV Switches configure fiber rings and fiber uplinks in compact, cost-effective solution.
Mobile, Ala., July 20, 2010—New HV Switches are part of N-TRON's popular 700 Series, a line of fully managed, feature-rich industrial Ethernet switches. With up to four fiber ports in a very small form factor, the new series provides the ability to configure fiber rings and fiber uplinks, in an ultra compact, very cost-effective solution.
Fiber optic communication provides excellent noise immunity for environments where high electromagnetic interference (EMI) is a factor—an ever present consideration in railway and power substation installations. The fiber connection also supports links over extended distances, up to 80 km, essential for wind farms and power utilities. The switches' ultra compact size and versatile mounting options allow these affordable devices to be used anywhere on the network, even in areas where space is very limited.
