Welcome to Kickstart where you get to see new products here at AutomationDirect. Today I am going to show AutomationDirects brand of Stride Industrial Strength Un-managed Ethernet switches. We now have 14 models of un-managed Ethernet switches to offer. You may ask yourself why would I want an un-managed switch vs. a managed switch – whats the difference? If your network has less than 10 devices attached and you don’t have the need for redundant paths or a desire to trouble shoot your network, then unmanaged switches will work great! They are simple, plug and play devices. These are all industrial grade switches which offer better temperature operating ranges, are less susceptible to vibration and noise that standard commercial switchs cannot offer. These offer multiple mounting options like the rear and side tabs here or DIN rail mount and rear mounting tabs and DIN rail mount like this model. We offer Wide temperature range models to meet the needs of high heat and humidity applications. You can find these un managed switches in Metal and in Plastic housings. And we have many configurations from standard 5 port RJ45 connection models to RJ45 & Fiber optic combo models with SC or ST fiber connectors. You can find the agency approvals and specs for these Stride un Managed Ethernet switches on our website at: www.automationdirect.com Don’t forget: we sell managed Ethernet switches , Ethernet converters and gateways and also Ethernet patch cables in multiple lengths and colors.
