July 11, 2010 – Ethernet Direct announce a series of special designed Industrial Ethernet Switches with conformal coating conforming to MIL-I-46058C standard. MIL-STD refers to military standards and MIL-I-46058C covers conformal coatings which are suitable for application to printed circuit assemblies by dipping, brushing, spraying, or vacuum deposition. This standard is beneficial in achieving interoperability; ensuring products meet certain requirements, reliability, total cost of ownership and compatibility with logistics systems or defense-related systems.The Iguana is a series of Industrial Unmanaged and redundant Ethernet Switches that come with extended temperature and conformal coating technology. There are two categories ready which are the IUE models and IRE models. IUE stands for Iguana Unmanaged Ethernet switch, and IRE means Iguana Redundant Ring Ethernet switch. IUE models offer a cost-effective wide temperature unmanaged switching solution while IRE models come with Redundant Ring feature. Both IUE and IRE models have wide operating temperature range of -40 to 80 deg C. Ethernet Direct also offers IUE/IRE models with conformal coating MIL-I-46058C standard, which is a protective coating applied to PCBs to prevent the circuitry from damage caused by humidity, moisture, dust, and corrosion when exposed to extreme environments.Product Features

  • Complies with IEEE802.3, 802.3u, 802.3x
  • Automatic MDI / MDI-X crossover for plug-and-play
  • Each port supports both 10/100 Mbps speed auto negotiation
