N-TRON Process Control (AB PLC) switches

These N-TRON Switches are specifically designed to meet the requirements of mission critical PLC and process control applications with Ethernet remote I/O using EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP, PROFINET, and other industrial Ethernet communication methods. The 500 Series -A firmware option offers N-View OPC Network Monitoring, IGMP Snooping, VLAN, QoS, Port Control, Trunking, and Mirroring required by many advanced I/O control applications. Little or no configuration is required.

The N-TRON 500 series, with the -A option, is well suited for connecting Ethernet equipped industrial control applications and comes with advanced Ethernet communication management features, like VLAN, IGMP Snooping, Port Trunking, QoS, and Mirroring. IGMP and query auto detect modes are enabled by default, and key enhancements include multiple router support as well as dynamic router discovery and master/slave redundancy for query detection. Key to the Advanced Models is the built-in management features and N-View OPC Server Software.

Advanced Management Features
Ease of setup means IGMP snooping and query auto-detect modes enabled by default. Along with enhancements like dynamic router discovery and master/slave redundancy for query detection, means seamless formation of IGMP groups across multiple switches. These features will reduce or eliminate additional configuration requirements typically required with other vendors’ switches.
