The IDS-205 is a 5 port Managed Ethernet Switch that can operate in industrial 10/100/1000-Base-T environments providing advanced performance and enabling real-time deterministic network operation. Perle Industrial-grade Ethernet Switches are designed to stand up to extreme temperatures, surges, vibrations, and shocks found in industrial automation, government, military, oil and gas, mining and outdoor applications. Perle's Fast Setup feature provides simple Plug and Play installation to get your Ethernet devices networked immediately. CCNA ( Cisco Certified Network Associate ) and CCNP ( Cisco Certified Network Professional ) trained engineers will appreciate the familiar Command Line Interface ( CLI ) via in-band Telnet or the out-band serial console port. The IDS-205 supports a comprehensive set of management functions, such as P-Ring, management VLAN, QoS, RMON, N:1 port mirroring and local alert log. In addition, the switch can be managed with an IPv6 address. Hardened to provide superior reliability in -10 to 60°C, these are rugged fan-less switches. In addition, every component on every industrial (XT) model has been designed and tested to handle operating temperatures between -40 and 75C. All Perle Industrial Ethernet Switches only use high-end components from the leading chip manufacturers to ensure the highest level of durability and reliability. In addition, all units have a corrosion resistance aluminum case and dual redundant power input with reverse polarity and overload protection.Perle has been designing industrial hardware for over 35 years and have used this expertise to design the toughest Ethernet switches on the market.
