As today's networks continue to grow and new applications demand more bandwidth, Red Lion's NT24k managed Gigabit Ethernet switches are well suited to deliver unsurpassed reliability and performance across many industrial environments. NT24k features include:
Hot-swappable modules – Networks are as dynamic as the applications where they are deployed. Today’s network infrastructures require hardware to grow and adapt as needs change. The all-Gigabit modular NT24k switches offer the industry’s highest level of flexibility with hot-swappable, auto-detecting modules. Ethernet, fiber and SFP options are available with Fast Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet connectivity to meet your needs today and tomorrow.
Connectivity options – With over 100 mixed-media configuration options, including copper M12 connectors, the rugged NT24k platform combines the benefits of noise-immune fiber with the versatility of 10, 100, 1000Base copper connectivity and optional IEEE 802.3af/at Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) support, and bypass relays to provide a robust migration path across varying industrial applications.
Rugged industrial design – NT24k switches perform best in critical industrial environments. Developed with industrial environments in mind, these switches have wide operating temperatures, UL Class I, Division 2 (Group A, B, C and D) listing and high tolerance to shock and vibration. With >1 million hour MTBF rating, and IP67-rated models available, the NT24k will perform reliably in any industrial environment.
Flexible platform – Red Lion N-Tron built the NT24k platform with the idea that no two networks are alike. NT24k switches are available in modular 1U rackmount chassis, a 2 or 3 bay modular DIN-rail enclosure, an IP67-rated metal bulkhead mount enclosure, or a compact DIN-rail configuration. Regardless of where these switches are mounted, a variety of AC and DC power input options to meet varying requirements are available.
Reliable performance – Network performance is paramount in today’s IP connected world. The NT24k platform helps address uptime needs with N-Ring™ technology that boasts 30ms recovery time for rings containing up to 250 switches. Pair ultra-fast healing time with fully managed Layer 2 functionality and you have a robust solution for all of your industrial networking needs.
Remote monitoring & control – Utilize N-View™ diagnostic and monitoring technology to remotely monitor your network. This easy-to-use software allows you to view real-time switch statistics, schedule firmware updates by model, individually or in user-defined groups immediately or at a future date and time, all to help ensure your network is running at peak performance.
