Sixnet is launching the Slim Line (SL) series of Industrial Ethernet managed switches, available in five-port (SL-5MS) and eight-port (SL-8MS) models, with up to two fibre-optic ports. These switches feature a compact and slim package design that makes them suitable for applications where
DIN rail space is a premium. Though they are small, these slimline switches still feature the high reliability and industrial ruggedness for which Sixnet is renowned.
These advanced switches support all standard IEEE 802.3 protocols and offer real-time secure performance through RSTP for fast redundancy, SNMP for network management, VLAN for network segregation, IGMP for multicast filtering and much more. Secure access is ensured with HTTPS (SSL and TLS), SSH, SNMPv3 plus others. These switches offer advanced intelligence and non-blocking wire-speed switching that allow all ports to communicate at full-duplex speed (200 Mbps) at the same time, eliminating collisions and ensuring no undesirable delays.
The Slim Line Industrial Ethernet managed switches have rugged circuitry and redundant power inputs, plus industrial surge and spike protection to keep systems up and running continuously. These switches are backed by a five-year support policy and Sixnet's 30+ years of experience designing truly industrial products. They are ultra-reliable, with over 1,000,000 service free hours (MTBF). Furthermore, these switches are CUL (UL/CSA), CE, FCC, ISO 9001 and RoHS/WEEE rated to assure their long-term success in harsh industrial environments.
