New Red Lion NT100 Series of Unmanaged Ethernet Switches Designed for Harsh Environments
York, PA—September 19, 2011—Red Lion Controls Inc. announces their new NT100 series of unmanaged Ethernet switches, offered with four, five
or eight ports and delivering automatic speed, duplex and cable sensing. The series features rugged construction, providing superior
durability for mission critical applications in harsh environments.
Red Lion’s unmanaged, IEEE 802.3 layer two network switches provide high-speed connections to multiple devices over Ethernet, without
requiring manual configuration. Capable of auto negotiating 10/100Mb networks and half/full duplex communications, these switches avoid
performance failures associated with bandwidth congestion, diverse operating speeds or interlinking devices with differing duplex
configurations. Additionally, the series is equipped with auto-crossing detection that supports standard and crossover Ethernet cables.
Constructed with hardened metal enclosures, the NT100 series Ethernet switches are UL approved for use in Class I, Division 2 hazardous
locations. These switches provide dependable performance in extreme environments, withstanding temperatures between -40 to +70 degrees
Celsius. Further, to prevent damaging transients or power failures, the switches are equipped with 16kV port protection and redundant power
inputs for continuous network performance.
“With the release of the new NT100 series, Red Lion provides reliable Ethernet switches for very harsh environments,” said Jesse Benefiel,
Red Lion Product Manager. “The NT100 series was designed to maintain network connectivity in mission critical applications, offering
reliable performance for continued business operation.”
