Industrial Remote Access Switch


SIXNET is pleased to introduce its new and innovative Remote Access Switch (ET-5MS-MDM). This product brings together an Industrial Telephone Modem with an Industrial 5-port Managed Ethernet Switch. This innovative product enables integrators and plant engineers to dial into the plant from remote locations saving the trip to the plant and providing quicker service at the same time.

Five Ethernet ports serve as an industrially hardened switch saving you the expense of a separately purchased and installed Ethernet Switch. Use this switch as a "plug and play" unmanaged switch or take advantage of the rich suite of SIXNET managed switch features such as RSTP (rapid spanning tree protocol) for fast redundant rings. Even after a break in a communications pathway, messages will be delivered. SIXNET managed switches can even detect and report network problems before they seriously affect network operations. The unit also has a self-test/alarm output signal plus authentication and encryption features.

Features of the integrated Industrial Telephone modem include easy and secure dial-in connections, PPP (point-to-point) for dial-up connections, and automatic dial-out on a trigger input. Connection speeds are fast, up to 56 Kbps. And SIXNET modems are compliant with phone (PSTN) systems world-wide, ensuring ease of use, just about anywhere.

The ET-5MS-MDM is compliant with a very robust set of industrial standards for use in truly open systems. The rugged and reliable hardware carries many industrial ratings and certifications for use in harsh environments, and boasts a 1,000,000 hours MTBF, along with a -40 to +75°C operating temperate. SIXNET also includes a unique 20-year support policy.
