5+1 Ports Gigabit Ethernet Switch

Available as 3U CompactPCI® peripheral board, the CL2-BRASS is a powerful Gigabit Ethernet switch. Its 8HP front panel is provided either with five M12-style X-coded Gigabit Ethernet circular connectors, or 5 x M12 D-coded 100Mbps sockets. As an option, a sixth GbE channel is reserved for CompactPCI® communication. The CL2-BRASS is equipped with the Marvell® 88E6350R switch, which is self-managed and comprises a rich feature set. The CL2-BRASS may be operated either as stand-alone card, powered from a single +5V external supply, or as a CompactPCI® peripheral board. For optional communication with the host CPU across the CompactPCI® backplane, an additional on-board Gigabit Ethernet controller is internally connected to the switch. The CL2-BRASS is suitable for a broad range of applications, e.g. industrial communication and transportation.
