The EOTec 2104 is a rugged, high performance Industrial Ethernet ring switch that is designed to fill the gap between unmanaged and managed Ethernet switches. It provides all the benefits of redundant ring topology operation, but at a significantly lower cost than managed switches.

The 2104 features the simplicity of installation and operation of an unmanaged switch, while retaining many of the capabilities of a managed switch. It is pre-configured for ring topology and no setup or configuration is required. It doesn’t require master switch selection or an IP address to operate in a redundant ring topology. Its ultra fast link loss recovery time ensures high reliability with minimal downtime.

The switch is supplied as standard with two 10/100Base-T copper ports and two 100Base-FX fiber ports (single or multi-mode). It is also expandable through its unique integrated backplane. For higher port counts (either copper or fiber), simply plug another four port switch or media converter into the switch.

The 2104 operates from a 15-40VDC power input and features a redundant power supply capability via its integrated backplane, using the Ultra Electronics, NSPI 2A06 or 2A16 (85-240VAC/ 85-125VDC) universal power supplies.

It has been designed for harsh industrial environments and for operation over a -40 °C to +85 °C ambient temperature range. It is also available in models that can transmit over fiber distances of up to 60 km (37 miles).
