Axiomtek introduced the iCON-47000 8-port 10/100Base-TX unmanaged hardened Ethernet switch, which fully complies with IEC61850-3 and IEEE 1613 standards for electric utility applications. The iCON-47000 comes with the flexibility of four to eight 10/100Base-TX RJ-45 ports and two 100Base-FX ports. This hardened unmanaged industrial Ethernet switch features an IP30 protected housing with slim form factor (60 x 125 x 145), a wide operating temperature range, DIN-rail or panel mounting capability, and redundant power inputs to give users greater flexibility for a variety of industrial automation applications.
The iCON-47000 features 10/100Mbps and full/half-duplex auto-negotiation and auto MDI/MDIX operation. With Auto MDI/MDIX function supported, users can easily expand network without using special cabling. Besides, the auto-negotiation capability allows users to connect client or other switches without any configuration. Besides, the iCON-47000 comes with full wire-speed forwarding rate. Moreover, the rugged device comes equipped with a 12~48 VDC redundant power inputs via a terminal block or power jack, and is secured with power polarity reverse and an overload current resettable fuse.
“Axiomtek’s iCON-47000 unmanaged hardened Ethernet switch is designed to meet the demands of power substation automation systems (IEC61850-3, IEEE1613), traffic control systems (NEMA TS1 & TS2) and railway applications (EN50121-4). Up to eight 10/100Base-TX ports and two 100Base-FX ports can be chosen to make the construction of a reliable Ethernet network easy. Additionally, this intelligent item applies high quality components with advantages of wide operating temperature range and long MTBF to keep your industrial applications running non-stop. With Axiomtek’s iCON-47000 Ethernet switch, users can save on cabling and wiring costs and speedily transform existing devices into more powerful and intelligent,” said Philip Wei, Product Manager of Product & Marketing Division at Axiomtek. For ease of maintenance, the hardened Ethernet switch features front-facing LED indicators that provide link activity and transmission speed. It can be DIN-rail or panel mounted.
