ET-5MS-OEM Industrial Ethernet Switch

Board-Level Industrial Connectivity

Industrial_Switch_board_levelThe ET-5MS-OEM is a 6 port managed industrial Ethernet switch designed for OEM-embedded applications. This powerful board-level solution enables organizations to save time and money by private labeling state-of-the-art industrial switches.





Industrial Switch Product Highlights

  • Board-level solution for embedded applications
  • 6 ports – including one MII – for flexible interfacing
  • 4 10/100 PHYs and magnetics on board
  • Extra output lines to drive external LEDs
    Low power consumption of less than 2 watts
  • Compact 3.5 x 2.5” (8.9 x 6.4 cm) design

Just add your own packaging, power supply and connectors and you have your own custom industrial Ethernet switch.
