The Ethernet switches in your wiring closet or computer centre enjoy a protected environment. The Ethernet switches at the edges of your network have to put up with the bumps, the dirt, the dampness, and the temperature fluctuations that happen out in the real world. This is where Heavy-Duty Edge Switches from Black Box come in.
Heavy-Duty Edge Switches are tough, 6-port Ethernet switches that enable you to expand your network into harsh environments such as factory floors or the outdoors. They’re robust, easy to set up, and available with a vast array of interface, power, and durability options. In short, they’re everything you’re looking for in an edge switch.
All Heavy-Duty Edge Switches come in a sturdy steel case that withstands heavy use. The switches come in three versions to adapt to nearly any environment. Because all three types work together seamlessly, you can use inexpensive Standard Heavy-Duty Edge Switches in protected office environments and choose the more robust Hardened or Extreme Heavy-Duty Edge Switches for harsh locations at your network’s edge.
Standard Edge Switches
For use in clean, temperature-controlled environments such as offices and wiring closets.
Feature the same heavyweight metal case as our more robust models.
Hardened Edge Switches
For use in dusty or dirty environments—ideal for demanding industrial applications.
Rated for a temperature range between -13 and +140°F (-25 and +60°C).
The metal case acts as a heat sink so no internal airflow is needed for cooling.
Sealed case resists contaminants such as dust, dirt, moisture, smoke, and insects.
Extreme Edge Switches
Robust units for outdoor use require protection only from direct rainfall or standing water.
Ideal for applications such as traffic-signal control, or for sensors or surveillance cameras in outdoor plants.
Rated for above-the-ceiling plenum installation.
Rated for extreme temperature ranges of -40 to +167°F (-40 to +75°C).
Features a sealed case, which uses its own metal shell as a heat sink.
