Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing in Dayton, Ohio, is introducing the ET1000 Ethernet port card for use with its GLX4000 physical layer switch products. The ET1000 supports Ethernet speeds as fast as 1 gigabit per second via 48 RJ45 front-panel connectors. The ET1000 port card is for use in Curtiss-Wright’s 144- and 288-port GLX4000 switches for managed layer-1 connections from any of its input ports to any of its output ports. Each ET1000 port card brings 10/100/1000 Ethernet communication directly into the GLX4000, and supports up to 48 CAT5 cables. The incoming copper media signals can convert to optical signals via the GLX4000’s SFP port cards (RT4000 or NRT2500). The ET1000 card also supports automatic speed negotiation and cable re-wiring (MDI/MDIX). The cards support a wide range of serial protocols. All GLX4000 port cards fit the GLX4000 144-port and 288-port switches. This modular design enables engineers to add port cards easily as the application grows, company officials say.
