The N-TRON 306FX2-N-SC Industrial Network Switch is designed to solve the most demanding industrial communications requirements while providing high throughput and minimum downtime. The 306FX2-N-SC provides four RJ-45 auto sensing 10/100BaseTX ports, plus two Fast Ethernet uplink ports. All TX ports are full/half duplex capable, using "state of the art" Ethernet switching technology. The 306FX2-N-SC auto-negotiates the speed and flow control capabilities of the four TX port connections, and configures itself automatically. The two fiber optic ports utilize industry standard SC duplex connectors and are configured for full duplex operation. Since the TX ports of the 306FX2-N-SC are 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 306FX2-N-SC supports up to 4,000 MAC addresses, thus enabling these products to support extremely sophisticated and complex network architectures. The N-TRON 306FX2-N-SC is an ideal candidate for upgrading existing hubs and repeaters to increase bandwidth and determinism by virtually eliminating network collisions. The 306FX2-N-SC also keeps the network affordable, while maintaining the plug & play simplicity of the unmanaged hub. The 306FX2-N-SC can simplify plant wiring by eliminating the need to bring data acquisition and control network connections back to a climate controlled environment. The 306FX2-N-SC has extended operating environmental specifications to meet the harsh needs of the industrial environment. For cost savings and convenience the 306FX2-N-SC 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 306FX2-N-SC can be panel mounted. To increase reliability, the 306FX2-N-SC 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.

Additional Product Information


The N-TRON N-View OLE for Process Control (OPC) Server Software 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. N-TRON's N-View OPC Server collects 41 different traffic variables per port and 5 system level variables per switch. This information can provide a complete overview of the network load, service quality, and packet traffic. OPC client software can use N-View OPC Server data to resolve network problems quickly and improve system reliability.
