As the use of industrial Ethernet devices increases, network security, segment isolation, and packet priority control become increasingly difficult when using unmanaged switches. This is where a STRIDE managed switch becomes 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 for your applications.
The STRIDE managed switches allow you to design and build rugged, reliable and cost effective networks with industrial Ethernet switches that will survive extreme temperatures, as well as dirty, unreliable industrial power.
Meeting UL 1604 (Class I Div. 2), and the IEC68-2 standard for vibration resilience, the STRIDE managed switches will provide years of reliable performance in applications too tough for commercial grade switches.
Our managed switches offer Gigabit port and fast Ethernet options, as well as various fiber SFP modules (SFP transceivers) that can be used on select managed switch models.
Available managed Ethernet switches include:
5-port switch, 8-port switch, 10-port switch and a 16-port switch (2 versions with fiber optic ports),
8-port switch and 10-Port Gigabit port switch models (with SFP fiber optic port options)
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 managed Ethernet switches. We now have 15 new models of managed switches to offer. You may ask yourself why would I want a managed switch vs. an un-managed switch? Managed switches are smarter and offer the ability for users to configure and troubleshoot with software. Internet Group Management Protocol, redundancy, Port mirroring for troubleshooting and VLAN for security and managing network traffic. With these new Stride Managed switches, we offer options for multiple fiber ports, options for gigabit speeds and options for single mode fiber ports. They have 3 configurable options on these switches like: Modbus status registers, SNMP notifications and a configurable alarm contact. These are industrial grade metal housed switches which offer better temperature operating ranges, are less susceptible to vibration and noise that a standard commercial switch cannot offer. These offer multiple mounting options like the tabs here or DIN rail mount. You can find the agency approvals and specs for these Stride Managed Ethernet switches on our website at: www.automationdirect.com Don’t forget: we sell unmanaged Ethernet switches in metal and plastic housings, Ethernet converters and gateways and also Ethernet patch cables in multiple lengths and colors.
