Meeting a Market Need
It is well established that technology products for industrial applications must be hardier than their commercial counterparts. A wide range of industrial computer equipment is available from a multitude of manufacturers.
Equipment such as industrial PC's, ruggedized laptops, control systems, Ethernet I/O, and data acquisition equipment are routinely provided that meet industrial requirements such as:
- Higher Operating Temperatures
- Higher Shock Tolerance
- Expanded Humidity Ranges
- Ruggedized Enclosures
- Convenient Industrial Mounting Capabilities
Ruggedized versions of computing equipment are commonplace in factories today. A large portion of this equipment is connected to the corporate network. Since industrial networking equipment has not been available, nodes are typically connected with individual wiring drops to a climate controlled environment. This creates significant expense, complexity, and reliability issues.
N-TRON solves this problem by providing a complete family of industrial networking equipment. This allows all Ethernet nodes (i.e. controllers, PLC's, industrial computers, remote I/O, etc.) to be interconnected locally with high speed uplinks to the corporate network.
N-TRON products are ideal for the interconnection of:
- Industrial PC's
- Programmable Logic Controllers
- Ethernet I/O
- Distributed Control Systems
All N-TRON switches are housed in ruggedized metal enclosures, designed to withstand the most demanding industrial applications, and have been fully tested and certified at industrial environmental extremes. The most common industrial packages are available:
- Panel Mount
- Rack Mount
