Kingsport, TN, July 21, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Protokraft introduced the HORNET Series of Panel Mounted Ethernet Switches with D38999 connector interfaces for military, aerospace, petrochemical, mining, industrial or utility applications where significant levels of shock, vibration and extreme temperature ranges are experienced. These components are designed for use in harsh environments where small size, weight reduction and resistance to harsh environments are valued.
Hornet series 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet switches enable high speed network communications in harsh environments.
Civil and military vehicle networking
Plug and play operation - no configuration required
Unmanaged Ethernet switch port multiplication
The MIL-DTL-38999, Series III shell provides a sealed interface that is water-tight to MIL-STD-810 when mated. Hornet series 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet switches are vibration isolated, environmentally hardened components designed for use in harsh environment applications.
Front interface sealed against liquid and solid contaminants
Shock and vibration resistant
5x (4+1) triple-speed switched 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet ports per IEEE 802.3:2005
Cable link distances up to 100 Meters (EIA/TIA Cat-5E)
Operating temperature range from -40°C to +85°C
Jumbo frame support in all speeds (10/100/1000Mbps)
