The N-TRON 509FX-A-SC is designed to operate in industrial environments. It is housed in a rugged steel enclosure that can be DIN-RAIL or Panel Mounted, and an optional rack mount kits is also available. The 509FX-A-SC also comes standard with extended temperature rating, extended shock and vibration specs, redundant power inputs, and a high MTBF (greater than2M hours). The N-TRON 509FX-A-SC requires no setup unless the advanced port functions are utilized. The eight 10/100BaseTX ports are auto sensing and auto configuring. Each copper port is automatically negotiated for maximum speed and performance by default. The fiber optic port supports full 200Mb/s communications via 100BaseFX. Bi-color LED's are provided to display the link status, link speed and activity of each port as well as power on/off status. The N-TRON 509FX-A-SC uses "state of the art" IEEE 802.3 Fast Ethernet 10/100BaseTX switching technology. This eliminates network collisions and increases network determinism. 4,000MAC addresses are supported enabling sophisticated and complex network architectures. A high speed processor and backplane allows wire speed capability on all ports simultaneously.

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.


The 509FX-A-SC offers several management functions that can be easily configured using the COM Port (DB 9 Connector located on the right side of the switch).
IGMP Snooping - Internet Group Management Protocol is a feature that allows the 509FX-A-SC 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 509FX switch configured in the same manner, thereby increasing the bandwidth between switches. This configuration can provide redundancy to applications requiring high levels of fault tolerant operation.
Port Mirroring - This 509FX-A-SC 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.
