Compact 5 port temperature hardened 100BaseTx switch




  • Compact, 5 port unmanaged industrial Fast Ethernet switch
  • Input power 9.6~60VDC, or 18~36VAC
  • Wide operating temperature -40 ~ 75°C (-E model )
  • Very low power consumption
  • Housed in rugged DIN rail or wall mountable enclosures
  • Flow control


The IFS-500C is a compact sized, unmanaged industrial grade Fast Ethernet switch with 5 10/100Base-TX ports that provides reliable Ethernet transmission.  Housed in rugged DIN rail or wall mountable enclosures, the switch is designed for harsh environments, such as industrial networking, intelligent transportation systems (ITS) and is also suitable for many military and utility market applications where environmental conditions exceed commercial product specifications (See Figure). Standard operating temperature range models (-10 to 60°C) and wide operating    temperature range models (-40 to 75°C) fulfill    the special needs of industrial automation applications.
