With plug-and-play operation and IGMP auto-configuration, the NT24k and 700/7000 managed industrial switches include standard EtherNet/IP and are designed to provide performance and uptime in the harshest conditions. Red Lion’s array of CIP-enabled managed switches, available in rackmount and DIN-rail mountable models, support a variety of port configurations and media types.
