 Eaton Power Xpert Ethernet Switches: 6 Port Rugged Edge Switch both copper and fiber



Eaton Power Xpert Architecture

Eaton Power Xpert Architecture provides the framework to unify the entire power system. It connects power systems with communication and management systems to provide a holistic approach to the entire power system. This strategic system-level focus is integral to PowerChain Management™ Solutions. It provides increased reliability, cost efficiencies, enhanced safety and risk mitigation and allows for the more effective use of capital. Eaton Power Xpert Architecture is comprised of both software and hardware components including meters, gateways, time servers and connectivity devices.

Expand the communication capability of your power system

As Ethernet LANs extend the network beyond the office to the plant floor and facility basement, the possibilities for power system monitoring and management have grown as well. However, these less-than optimal environments have special requirements to keep the lines of communication open, and the health of the power system intact. Eaton’s Power Xpert Ethernet Switches are ideal for extending Ethernet networks via CAT5 wiring or fiber in harsh, industrial environments. Built with high-grade components and constructed using special thermal techniques, PXE Switches can withstand the unpredictable conditions of such environments. PXE Switches support IEE 802.3u auto-negotiation and MDI/MDIX auto-cross, enabling a 10 Mb or 100 Mb device to be attached on any port. Two terminals provide connections to monitor an internal power-sense relay. The ambient temperature is for industrial use, and since no internal air flow is required for cooling, it resists dust, dirt, moisture, smoke and insects. Mounting options include standalone panel-mounting or optional DIN-Rail mounting.

PXE 6-port Switch - 10/100 Mb with optional 100 Mb fiber

In heavy-duty industrial applications, Ethernet LANs are often used where small groups of nodes at the edge need to be connected into larger LAN structures. The Power Xpert 6-port switch delivers innovative features to serve edge-of-the network applications. This compact switch provides six Ethernet ports, with flexible configurations. The base models have one of three options:

The 6-port switch includes Link-Loss-Learn (LLL), enabling them to be used in self-healing and redundant LAN environments. The LLL capability allows the switch to sense link loss or standard STP/RSTP reconfiguration signals on designated ports, flush internal address buffers to permit a change in LAN packet flow, and pass the reconfiguration signal down the line to other products in the redundant network structure. PXE Switches, combined with managed switches running STP, RSTP or S-Ring, can provide cost-effective, high-availability redundant LANs.

PXE 4-port Switch 10/100 Mb

For applications that need a small amount of Ethernet connectivity, the 4-port Power Xpert Ethernet Switch is a versatile option. It provides edge access Ethernet ports in a convenient and compact package.
