MINNEAPOLIS, 27 Nov. 2006. TURCK Inc. in Minneapolis is introducing a line of Ethernet switches that are encapsulated, connectorized, managed, unmanaged. These switches are capable of information transfer and real-time I/O control in harsh industrial environments.
The switches support 10/100 Base-T with twisted pair Ethernet cable. The unmanaged switches are available in five- or nine-port configurations, with support for either two or four twisted pair media. The managed switch comes in the nine-port configuration, with one port used as a RS-232 configuration port.
To set up the switches, users simply apply power and connect devices to the ports. IGMP, RSTP, SNMP, and V-LAN are supported by the managed switch and may be configured by the RS-232 serial configuration port or by the internal Webpage.
IEEE 802.3 specification makes TURCK's Ethernet switches capable of any Ethernet application, and the rugged design and packaging keep these switches working under conditions where others are likely to fail.
