SLX-5EG-2SFP Industrial Ethernet Gigabit Switch

SLX-5EG-2SFP_R_nSlimLine Plus All Gigabit Industrial Connectivity

The Red Lion Sixnet SLX-5EG-2SFP (2 + 3G) is a 5-port all Gigabit industrial Ethernet switch designed for reliable performance in industrial networking environments. Gigabit operation drives fast data throughput and network efficiency. The SLX series features rugged construction optimized for high tolerance to extreme environmental conditions. Convenient plug-and-play capabilities eliminates time-consuming setup and configuration. Ethernet SFP ports for fiber or copper links can be mixed and matched to provide port flexibility.
