Brainboxes introduces SW-505 compact 5 port Ethernet switch

June 13, 2016 - Brainboxes is previewing their new compact Ethernet Switch at the International Festival of Business which takes place 13 June to 1 July 2016. The SW-505 is an instant-install, unmanaged Ethernet 5-port switch designed to give multiple reliable Ethernet ports in those tight cabinet spaces.

Brainboxes’ SW-505 10/100 MB/s Ethernet switch, with galvanically isolated ports with broadcast storm protection, provides safe operation in tough environments and extremetemperatures between -40ºC to +80ºC (-40ºF to +176ºF). It uses a 2K packet size to enhance bulk data transfer and optimize system performance. The SW-505 is encased in a non-conductive plastic for enhanced safety, particularly important for electrical wiring in cabinet spaces.

As with all Brainboxes Ethernet Switches reliability is further enhanced with redundant dual power inputs between +5V to +30V DC meaning a second power supply can be fitted as a back-up to prevent down time should one power source fail. The power input range means the SW-505 can be run from: a 24VDC factory floor supply; a standard car battery, making it ideal for in-vehicle and aboard boats; or even a computer USB port, using an optional accessory cable (PW-650).   

Easy to install into your existing network and taking up minimal space, the SW-505 is slim in size at just 21mm wide and 94mm deep, comes with a DIN rail clip to speed up mounting inside a cabinet and designed with an “easy wire” feature using removable, numbered terminal blocks.  Power consumption is optimised for maximum efficiency with a power down mode for when the device is inactive.
