SLX-10MG Industrial Ethernet Switch

industrial_gigabit_managed_switch_10portSlimLine Plus Gigabit Industrial Connectivity

The SLX-10MG is a 10 port industrial Ethernet switch with managed capabilities, 7 fast and 3 Gigabit ports of which two are combination ports that support both copper and fiber optic connections. This switch is designed to be rugged, reliable, real-time and secure. It combines compact DIN-rail packaging, protected circuitry and powerful software to keep your system going even under the toughest conditions.



Industrial Switch Product Highlights

  • 10 ports including
    • 7 fast Ethernet 10/100 RJ45 ports
    • 1 Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000 RJ45 port
    • 2 Gigabit combo ports for copper or fiber
  • High port count in a small footprint
  • Truly rugged design with -40 to 75°C operation
  • Easy to configure management functions


Two Flexible Combination Gigabit Ports

Your choice, either connect to the RJ45 for a 10 /100 /1000 Mbps auto-detecting copper link or plug in a fiber transceiver for a 100 or 1000Mbps noise-immune fiber link. These advanced ports give you the flexibility you need and make your job easier!

Real-Time Secure Performance

  • Real-Time Ring™ or Rapid Spanning Tree (RSTP) for fast redundant ring or mesh networks
  • SNMPv1 and v2 network management
  • SNMPv3 authentication and encryption for security
  • SNMP notifications (traps) for report on event
  • Priority Queuing (QoS/CoS) for real-time operation
  • IGMP for Multicast filtering (snooping and querying)
  • VLAN for convenient traffic segregation
  • Broadcast and multicast storm protection
  • RMON and port mirroring for advanced diagnostics
  • Security with HTTPS, SSL, SSH, SNMPv3 and more
