Ethernet Direct Rolls Out IRE-323EC Industrial Ethernet Switch

Ethernet Direct Corporation, a professional and primary provider of Industrial Networking and communication solutions, releases a uniquely designed Industrial Ethernet Switches IRE-323EC which supports Modbus over TCP and comes with extended temperature and optional conformal coating. Industrial Ethernet is a trend in industrial communications and automation applications due to the fact that majority of the PLC and DCS manufacturers offer devices with a built-in Ethernet interface to allow industrial control equipment to be integrated into the industrial automation.

Ethernet Direct Industrial Ethernet switches are an open standard and guarantees more support on future technical advances compared with some proprietary control networks to increase the flexibility of a network system. The Iguana IRE-321EC is Industrial 5-port Ethernet Switches with three 10/100 Mbps Ethernet ports and two single mode fiber port capable of Redundant ring technology. The self-healing technology can recover from any network downtime in less than 50 ms on full load. SCADA application can monitor status of Ethernet and fiber port with Modbus or OPC protocol to provide majority of applications with a seamless process.

The industrial environment has been rapidly changing due to factors like surging oil prices and more stringent controls on gas emissions. The flammability protected IRE-323EC industrial hardened Ethernet switch specifically designed in applications where transmission must be protected from electrical exposure, surges, lightning, chemical corrosion and in hazardous locations. In addition, the Iguana switches offer Ethernet isolation of 1500 Vrms and frame ground for EMS protection which is not a standard feature in most Industrial Ethernet devices. The shielded Ethernet port connectors offer a high reliability Ethernet environment for industrial control and automation. Two power inputs 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.

In industrial automation, when IRE-323EC is placed into a redundant ring application, it detects and recovers a fiber or copper link failure in milliseconds and truly engineered for mission critical, the devices installed need to assure reliable 24×7 operations. IRE models Industrial Ethernet switches are versatile solutions to fulfill the fast growing demand in industrial automation.
