Product Details Supplier Info More products

MTL Instruments has launched the 9200-ET series of Ethernet connectivity products, designed for industrial applications in harsh and hazardous process control environments.

The 9200-ET series of Ethernet products features multi-port managed and unmanaged switches, Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability, multiple fibre-port options and Gigabit switches.

The portfolio provides a core technology to the existing Tofino Network Security solution, Intrinsically Safe Ethernet and Wireless ranges, offering users a complete suite of digital connectivity products.

Industrial process plants are demanding greater efficiency, higher reliability, increased levels of security and lower cost of ownership of field equipment and supporting networks.

MTL Instruments’ 9200-ET series of Ethernet products are suitable for use in extended temperature areas and are certified for use in Atex Zone 2 and UL Class 1 Div 2 areas, ensuring reliability and rugged dependability in extreme environments.

Features such as Active IGMP provide Multicast filtering to deliver optimised video surveillance solutions, while switch status over Modbus TCP delivers network status within the skill set of the control engineer.

The MTL 9200-ETM DIN-rail and panel-mount and 9200-ETZ rack-mount managed switches support Redundant Ring network topology providing high-speed recovery from network failures required for real-time automation networks.

Flexibility in network topology is provided with support for up to four Redundant Rings on each switch, as well as supporting the open Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) for integration into manufacturing execution system (MES).

MTL provides full customer support to simplify selection, installation and operation of Ethernet networks.

This reduces the risk to the end user of installing and operating Ethernet networks in process applications.

As part of Cooper Industries, MTL is able to offer a comprehensive range of Ethernet switches integrated into enclosures with suitable glands for harsh and hazardous environments.
