STRIDE Industrial Ethernet switches offer gigabit transmission speeds, various connection options and are built to withstand extreme conditions including drastic temperature changes, electrical interference, and corrosion.
STRIDE Ethernet switches are specifically built for industrial environments and can withstand extreme conditions including applications where temperatures can range from freezing to sweltering heat. STRIDE switches also offer superior EMC performance, corrosion-resistance, a rugged metal or plastic housing, and various mounting options.
STRIDE Ethernet switches automatically determine and remember the devices connected to each port and route messages only through the appropriate ports reducing data collisions that can slow down your network. Install STRIDE Ethernet switches and your Ethernet control network will maintain more consistent cycle times even under heavy I/O and data exchange.
STRIDE Ethernet switch models are available with a variety of fiber optic connections. Fiber optic cables are immune to electrical and magnetic interference and cannot be damaged by induced voltage transients. Fiber optic cabling not only enhances reliability, it saves time you might have spent tracking down problems caused by electrical interference. Also, your network distance is greatly increased when using fiber optic cabling.

Unmanaged Ethernet switches offer multiple 10/100BaseT RJ45 Ethernet ports; several include fiber optic connections with SC fiber optic connector and ST connector versions.
Models with Gigabit Ethernet, higher port count (up to 18 ports), SFP options, PoE capability, and IP65 washdown ratings are also available.
Managed switches are especially beneficial in an industrial network application. Supported features such as SNMP, IGMP, VLAN, QOS and network redundancy, allow networks to be configured and managed in a way that assures the highest performance levels.
STRIDE managed ethernet switches offer Gigabit Ethernet, higher port count (up to 18 ports), and SFP options.
STRIDE SFP (small form-factor pluggable) transceivers, also called mini-GBIC, are compact, hot-swappable transceivers with LC fiber connectors. Select STRIDE Ethernet switches have ports that accept these optional transceivers to add fiber connectivity at Fast Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet speed.
