The N-TRON 7018TX Industrial Ethernet Switch is designed to operate in industrial environments. The 7018TX auto-negotiates the speed and performance capabilities of the TX port connections, and can be hard coded via the user interface. The 10/100BaseTX ports on the 7018TX are auto sensing and auto configuring. The two SFP gigabit ports can provide 2000 Mb/s communications. The 7018TX has extended industrial specifications to meet the needs of the connected equipment.

Additional Product Information

The N-Tron 7018TX offers several management functions that can be easily configured using a web browser.
IGMP Snooping - Internet Group Management Protocol is a feature that allows the 7018TX switch to forward and filter multicast traffic intelligently.
VLAN - Virtual Local Area Network allows you to segment the switch in order to create two or more separate local area network domains.
QoS - Quality of Service provides prioritization of network traffic in order to provide better network service. The primary goal of QoS is to improve the latency of prioritized Ethernet packets required for ring management, real-time and other interactive applications.
Trunking - Trunking (aggregation) enables multiple physical ports to be linked together and function as one uplink to another switch configured in the same manner, thereby increasing the bandwidth between switches. This configuration can provide increased bandwidth and redundancy to applications requiring high levels of fault tolerant operation.
Port Mirroring - This 7018TX function allows the traffic on one port to be duplicated and sent to a designated mirror port. Port mirroring can be used to monitor Ethernet traffic on the designated source port using the assigned mirror port.
DHCP - DHCP Client/Server automates IP address assignments. If a device on a certain port is replaced, the new device acquires the same IP address as the original.
Rapid Spanning Tree - This 7018TX function enables the switch to be configured in a Ring or Mesh topology. It provides support with high speed healing for redundant path communications.
Remote Monitoring - The 7018TX offers Web Browser Management as well as N-TRON N-View OLE for Process Control (OPC) Server Software. N-View can be combined with popular HMI software packages to add network traffic monitoring, trending and alarming to any application using N-TRON switches configured with the N-View option. SNMP is available for switch link and status monitoring. The Alarm Contact and Status LED can be configured to respond to power failure.
N-Ring Technology - N-Ring Technology provides greater ring size capacity, detailed fault diagnostics, and a standard healing time of approximately 30ms. The 7018TX Ring Manager checks the health of the Ring via packets. A ring map and fault location chart will be on the Ring Manager's web browser and OPC server that shows the current 'health status' of the Ring when all switches in the Ring are N-Tron fully managed switches.
