Taipei, Taiwan, 2012/09/27 - Korenix is pleased to announce it has upgraded its JetNet 5428G series rackmount managed switches’ firmware to support Modbus TCP for enhancing the connectivity and simplifying network maintenance in factory automation systems - Korenix.com.
The Modbus TCP registers available in the new firmware will enable JetNet 5428G series users to provide an easy and reliable way to connect with the existing HMI, SCADA and other data acquisition systems. The availability of the Modbus TCP protocol in the switches will keep users from installing additional management platforms to do monitoring of switch devices, as a result helping save costs while easily integrating switches in factories. Network administrators can use ubiquitous Modbus protocol to read the switches information, receive communication status of the switches, monitor and maintain them from remote locations, etc...
Aiming to design a reliable and cost-effective factory automation network, Korenix offers a wide range of managed switches with the support of Modbus TCP protocol, including:
• JetNet 4508 V2 / 4508f V2--- 8-port Managed Fast Ethernet / Fiber Switch
• JetNet 4510 --- 10-port Managed Fast Ethernet Switch
• JetNet 4518-w --- 18-port Managed Fast Ethernet Switch
• JetNet 5010G --- 10-port Managed Gigabit Switch
• JetNet 5012G --- 8+4G Managed Gigabit Switch
• JetNet 5018G --- 16+2G Managed Gigabit Switch
• JetNet 6059G --- 9G Managed Gigabit Switch
• JetNet 5628G --- IEC61850-3 rated 24+4G Modular Managed Switch
• JetNet 5828G --- IEC61850-3 rated 24+4G Layer 3 Modular Managed Switch.
JetNet 5428G series are compact 19’ rackmount managed gigabit switches designed with 24 Fast Ethernet Copper ports and 4 Gigabit combo ports (JetNet 5428G) for high bandwidth or 2 Giga combo ports and 2 100M/Gigabit SFP sockets (JetNet 5428G-2G-2FX) for Fast Ethernet or Gigabit over optical fiber transmission in factory networks.
The switches are designed to support Korenix patented MSR and the traditional MSTP network redundancy to fit in the existing or new network infrastructure systems, and therefore, provide reliable data transfer. The switches also support LLDP and JetView Pro for efficient and real-time network management, and advanced Layer 2 management and security features, including QoS, 256 VLANs, Private VLAN and QinQ, DHCP option 82, etc… for high performance and enhanced data security. Combining all this features into their rugged fanless design with -25~70oC temperature, the switches provide excellent data transfer under tough conditions of factory applications.
