AXIOMTEK Unveils iCON-32005, iCON-32008, iCON-32160 Ethernet Switches

AXIOMTEK introduces three series of unmanaged industrial Ethernet switches available in 10/100Mbps speed with both copper wire and fiber optic cable connections, the iCON-32005, iCON-32008, and iCON-32160. These compact and industrially hardened switches are designed especially for industrial environments with Ethernet networking needs. AXIOMTEK’s industrial Ethernet solutions can enable you to expand your industrial network efficiently and cost-effectively.

The below is brief introduction for each series:

5-port Hardened Unmanaged Ethernet Switches – iCON-32005 Series
The iCON-32005 series is cost-effective Ethernet switches with 5-port 10/100Base-TX or 4-port 10/100Base-TX plus 1-port 100Base-FX. With auto-negotiation and auto-MDIX, this series provides a cost-effective solution by integrating legacy 10Mbps network with 100Mbps Fast Ethernet network. The iCON-32005 series is designed with an IP30 plastic chassis. Furthermore, its compact size and wide temperature ranging (-10°C ~ 60°C) allow them to be installed in space-constrained and rugged areas.

8-port Hardened Unmanaged Ethernet Switches – iCON-32008 Series
The iCON-32008 series is equipped with eight 10/100Base-TX ports, or six 10/100Base-TX ports plus two 10/100Base-FX ports. This series features an extended operating temperature range of -40°C ~ 75°C. The IP20 aluminum housing helps dissipate heat efficiently, allowing system to operate under extremely high temperature conditions. The iCON-32008 series meets NEMA TS1/2 standard for traffic control equipment, UL 1604 safety standard for hazardous environment of explosive or flammable conditions, and UL60950 standard for information technology equipment. The iCON-32008 series is equipped with two redundant power inputs which guarantee non-stop operation. The backup power input will take over immediately when the primary DC power input fails. Furthermore, the iCON-32008 series provides one relay output which can be set up to identify events when power fails or port breaks.

16-port Hardened Unmanaged Ethernet Switches – iCON-32160 Series
The iCON-32160 series is hardened, non-managed 16-port switches with advantages of extended operating temperature range of -40°C ~ 75°C and long MTBF. These rugged Ethernet switches offer sixteen 10/100Base-TX fast Ethernet ports, or fourteen 10/100Base-TX ports plus two 10/100Base-FX ports. The IP20 aluminum housing helps dissipate heat efficiently, allowing system to operate under extremely high temperature conditions. The iCON-32160 series meets NEMA TS1/2 standard for traffic control equipment, UL508 standard for industrial control equipment, and UL60950 standard for information technology equipment. The iCON-32160 series is equipped with an additional DC jack connector which provides three power inputs creating triple redundant power inputs and guarantees non-stop operation. The backup power input will take over immediately when the primary DC power input fails. Furthermore, the iCON-32160 series provides one relay output which can be set up to identify events when power fails.

“AXIOMTEK expands industrial automation product line with rugged industrial Ethernet switches. These hardened unmanaged industrial Ethernet switches have 5, 8, and 16-port models coming with an IP20/IP30 protected housing with slim form factor, a wide operating temperature range, DIN-rail or panel mounting capability, and redundant power inputs to give users greater flexibility for a variety of industrial applications,” said Alex Hsueh, Product Manager of Applied Computing Platforms Business Unit at AXIOMTEK.

Each Ethernet switch can be DIN-rail or panel mounted. For ease of setup and maintenance, each Ethernet port is equipped with front-facing LED indicators. The iCON-32005, iCON-32008, and iCON-32160 will be ready around end of February. For more product information, please contact our sales representative at info@axiomtek.com.tw.
