The ComNet™ CNGE5MS is a hardened, industrial five port all gigabit managed Ethernet switch. It has three 10/100/1000Base-TX and two Gigabit combo ports that utilize ComNet SFP modules for fiber and connector type and distance. The IEEE 802.3 compliant unit is a redundant switch offering multiple Ethernet redundancy protocols, C-Ring, ComRing, C-RSTP and MSTP/RSTP/STP. This redundancy feature protects your applications from network interruptions or temporary malfunctions by redirecting transmission within the network. The CNGE5MS offers centralized and convenient management through a windows-based utility called eConsole. Redundant DC power inputs provide non-stop operation in case of power supply disruption. The backup power input will take over immediately when the primary DC power input fails. The unit provides relay outputs that can be set up to indicate events and notify in case of potential problems.
