The N-TRON 304TX-N Industrial Network Switch is designed to solve the most demanding industrial communications requirements while providing high throughput and minimum downtime. The 304TX-N provides four RJ-45 auto sensing 10/100BaseTX ports. All ports are full/half duplex capable, using "state of the art" Ethernet switching technology. The 304TX-N auto-negotiates the speed and flow control capabilities of the TX copper port connection, and configures itself automatically. Since the 304TX-N is auto sensing, there will be no need to make extensive wiring changes if upgrades are made to the host computers, plant systems, or Ethernet I/O modules. The switching fabric simply scales up or down automatically to match your specific network environment. The 304TX-N supports up to 4,000 MAC addresses, thus enabling these products to support extremely sophisticated and complex network architectures. The N-TRON 304TX-N is an ideal candidate for upgrading existing hubs and repeaters to increase bandwidth and determinism by virtually eliminating network collisions. The 304TX-N also keeps the network affordable, while maintaining the plug & play simplicity of the unmanaged hub. The 304TX-N can simplify plant wiring by eliminating the need to bring data acquisition and control network connections back to a climate controlled environment. The 304TX-N has extended operating environmental specifications to meet the harsh needs of the industrial environment. For cost savings and convenience the network switch can be DIN-RAIL mounted alongside Ethernet I/O or other Industrial Equipment. The unique compact size provides a smaller footprint, conserving space in the most critical dimension. In addition, as with other DIN-RAIL devices, the 304TX-N can be panel mounted. To increase reliability, the 304TX-N contains redundant power inputs. LED's are provided to display the link status and activity of each port, as well as power on/off status.
