Vibrations, extreme temperatures, and electrical interference can all affect the reliability of a network, presenting multiple challenges for network connections. Tripp Lite’s industrial network switches are built to endure harsh conditions on the factory floor. These unmanaged switches feature ruggedized construction, a wide operating temperature range, and electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection. All of the switches have a terminal block and include a bracket for DIN rail mounting. Switches are available with up to 16 Ethernet ports with options for small form factor pluggable (SFP) ports and Power over Ethernet (PoE).

Quick LAN connections

  • Switches feature auto-negotiating Fast Ethernet (10/100 Mbps) or Gigabit Ethernet (10/100/1000 Mbps) RJ45 ports
  • MDI/MDIX crossover detection allows the RJ45 ports to automatically detect and choose the connection required without using special crossover cables for uplinks

Error-free forwarding

  • Store-and-forward switching stores a complete frame and checks it for errors before forwarding it to its destination. Frames with errors are discarded, preventing disruptions to network traffic

Designed for industrial environments

  • Ruggedized metal case withstands vibration, shock, and free fall; it is rated IP30 for protection from tools and wires greater than 2.5 millimeters
  • Wide operating temperature range allows equipment to function in cold and hot environments
  • ESD protection (±8 kV air discharge, ±4 kV contact discharge) reduces potential static damage to connected equipment
  • Pre-installed rail clip mounts to a standard 35 mm DIN rail; some switches can also mount to a wall

Plug-and-play setup

  • Switches are unmanaged for fast deployment. There is no software to download or settings to configure before use

Convenient terminal block input

  • A terminal block power input helps prevent unnecessary downtime
  • Switches with a 6-pin terminal block have redundant power inputs. When used with two power sources, these switches support the wiring of the alarm relay contacts to an existing alarm circuit

Fiber optic uplinks (select models)

  • Also known as Mini-GBIC ports, SFP uplink ports accept SFP transceivers that allow multiple switches to be connected using fiber optic cable

Power for PoE devices (select models)

  • PoE+ ports support PoE to power connected PoE devices, such as IP phones, wireless access points, and security cameras

TAA compliance

  • Switches comply with the Federal Trade Agreements Act (TAA), making them eligible for GSA Schedule purchases
