Ethernet Direct Rolls Out IRE-800EC Industrial Redundant Ring Switch

Ethernet Direct Corporation, a professional and primary provider of Industrial Networking and communication solutions, is pleased to offer a uniquely designed Industrial 8-port Ethernet Switch, IRE-800EC with extended temperature, conformal coating technology and supporting Modbus over TCP. The Iguana series IRE-800EC is an eight port Industrial Ethernet Real-Time Redundant Ring Switch engineered for mission critical, the devices installed need to assure reliable 24×7 operations.

IRE-800EC comes ready with conformal coating and extended temperature of -40 to +80 degrees C. In addition, its shielded Ethernet port connectors to offer a high reliability Ethernet environment for industrial control and automation. IRE-800EC provides two power inputs that can be connected simultaneously to live DC power sources. If one of the power inputs fails, the other live source acts as a backup to automatically and the relay output facility can deliver warning signal while dual power or network link failure.

IRE-800EC supports Modbus/TCP, Modbus/RTU and OPC protocols to provide majority of applications with a seamless process. In SCADA applications, it can monitor the status of Ethernet and fiber port with Modbus or OPC protocol. When IRE-800EC devices are placed into a redundant ring application, its redundant ring technology detects and recovers a fiber or copper link failure in milliseconds.
