Industrial Ethernet DIN rail switch for industrial automation, mission-critical networks
Ideal for harsh environments, a new managed 8- or 14-port industrial Ethernet DIN rail switch from TC Communications supports industrial automation and mission-critical redundant ring networks.
The TC3314 supports 6 or 12 copper 10/100Base-TX ports and two 1000Base-TX/LX SFP ports. It enables distances to more than 60 miles and offers a “one-fiber, bi-directional” option to maximize fiber optic cable usage, according to TC Communications.
Intended for industrial Ethernet applications, the TC3314 is a robust, feature-laden mission-critical network solution for all types of networks including industrial automation, process control, manufacturing, SCADA, power utilities, oil refineries, transportation, traffic control, light/heavy metro rail systems, and railroads.
Advanced networking features including rapid and multiple spanning tree (RSTP/MSTP), QoS, VLAN, network time protocol (NTP) and rate limiting. Diagnostics include unique features such as built-in operation current, voltage, and temperature monitoring sensors and remote optical measurements for launch power and sensitivity.
An industrial hardened version supports temperature ranges from -40 C to 80 C and meets or exceeds all pertinent industrial environmental specifications including IEC 61850-3, IEEE 1613, NEMA TS-2, etc. Power redundancy is standard and source options include 12 Vdc, 24 Vdc, -48 Vdc or 115/230 Vac.
The TC3314 is compatible with TC Communication’s flag ship product, the JumboSwitch, and can be used as a remote node in a JumboSwitch network.
