Ethernet Direct releases WME-821-M12 Managed Ethernet Switch

May 9, 2010 - Ethernet Direct released the ten port Industrial M12 Managed Ethernet Switch, designed for the toughest industrial applications and comes with IP-67/68 rating. The Whale Series WME-821-M12 is a highly reliable and robust Industrial 10-port IP67 M12 Managed Ethernet Switch. It has 8 10/100Base-T(X) M12 ports and two multi-mode fiber ports. With the fiber ports, WME-821-M12 transmits data at high speed for long distance up to 2 km with an LC connector.WME-821-M12 provides redundant self-recovery mechanism in less than 10ms on full load which allows user to establish a stable redundant Ethernet network to build up a back-up ring. With powerful network management functions, WME-821-M12 can be remotely configured by a web browser, managed by SNMP. Event notification can be defined via SNMP trap, Syslog, relay output or E-mail. Security is enhanced with advanced features like port-based VLAN, tagged VLAN, and IP security. Performance is optimized by Quality of Service, and IGMP Snooping/Querying. Its IP-67 housing, M12 connectors, and wide operating temperature range of -40 to 80℃ are ideal for the harshest industrial environments.Ethernet Direct Industrial M12 switch series come with revolutionized a new design concept to be deployed in applications that require environment protection such as outdoor locations including transportation (railways, moving vehicles, highways), mining sites, factory automation, petrochemical plants, metal industries, oil & gas, military applications, chemical processing and food and beverage industries.Features of WME-821-M12
