AUGSBURG, Germany – Kontron in Augsburg, Germany, is introducing the RES2404-PTP high-end ruggedEthernet switch for harsh environmental conditions with Precision Time Protocol (PTP)-enabled solutions in military and industrial applications.

The device comes in a 19-inch 1U housing and two managed Ethernet switch core modules. The PTP protocol for the precise synchronization of clocks throughout a computer network in accordance with the IEEE 1588 standard is especially important for decentralized systems in automation technology.

Control units in power distribution facilities, motion control systems, but also metrology devices that need to relay precise values over long distances, rely heavily on PTP.

The Kontron RES2404 can be monitored remotely via simple network management protocol (SNMP), command line or Web interface. The L2/L3 switch with IPv6 support is available in two versions.

The RES2404-PTP features 24 1 Gigabit Ethernet and four 10 Gigabit Ethernet Ports, 24 Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) ports with as much as 150 Watts in total, with a 30 Watts maximum per single port. IT resists shock and vibrations, and operates in temperatures from -20 to 50 degrees Celsius.
