CTRLink - Ethernet for Automation

Ethernet for Automation

Ethernet has rapidly become the network of choice for automation systems due to its high speed, familiarity among users, and ability to easily connect to the Internet. But the environment can be demanding. The equipment must be robust, reliable, and easy to install, maintain and use. It must carry proper regulatory approvals and, in some instances, withstand outdoor temperatures. Office-grade equipment, with its frequent model changes and inconvenient mounting, will not do.

The CTRLink family of Ethernet infrastructure products addresses the needs of the automation professional. Unlike office-grade products, all CTRLink product enclosures are metal and intended for direct panel or DIN-rail mounting. Metal DIN-rail clips prevent damage during installation. All products can share with other automation equipment a common 24 VAC/VDC power source, eliminating the need for a dedicated mains-powered transformer. Most models have provisions for redundant power sources to accommodate back-up strategies in critical applications.
