EISK8-GT | Gig Switch. 8-port 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX/1000BASE-T Skorpion switch, DIN-rail mount | Contemporary Controls
Contemporary Controls part#: EISK8-GT
For control panels where DIN-rail space is at a premium, the Skorpion series of plug-and-play (unmanaged) Ethernet switches with widths as little as one inch (26 mm) is the answer.
Housed in a rugged metal enclosure with a metal DIN-rail clip, the Skorpion series includes models with 5, 8 and 16 ports. Some models provide one or two ports of either single-mode or multimode fibre optics with either SC or ST connectors.
No configuration is necessary. All copper ports automatically configure their data rate and duplex using the auto-negotiation protocol. Depending on the capability of the link partner, communications is established at either 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps, and in the case of the GT models at 1000 Mbps, and at either half- or full-duplex. Each port will adapt to either a straight-through or crossover cable by using the Auto-MDIX protocol.
Fibre ports are fixed at 100 Mbps full-duplex for the highest performance. Multimode cable lengths cannot exceed 2 km and single-mode lengths cannot exceed 15 km without a special order. Fibre optics is ideal for inter-building cabling in a campus environment.
The Skorpion Diagnostic Switch is intended for protocol analysis. It retains all the features of the EISK5-100T except it does not learn, allowing the diagnostic switch to be party to all communications. The diagnostic switch is intended to work with a sniffer or protocol analyser tool such as Wireshark in order to observe all traffic on the network.
All Skorpion models have half-wave rectified low-voltage power supply allows for the sharing of power with other 24 VAC/VDC control devices. LED indicators of data rate and activity assist in troubleshooting. For control panels of nominal depth, the Skorpion series offers the widest range of Ethernet connectivity solutions.
All Skorpion models meet regulatory approvals including UL 508 Listed, c-UL Listed, CSA 22.2 No. 14-M91, CE Mark and RoHS compliance.
