The combination of Gigabit copper and SFP ports along with advanced management capabilities such as IGMP snooping, LACP, 256 VLAN support, multiple redundant ring configuration, and extensive security features places the RocketLinx ES8509-XT in a class by itself for meeting the high-bandwidth, wide-area requirements of the most demanding industrial network infrastructures.

The RocketLinx ES8509-XT is housed in a rugged aluminum enclosure featuring an excellent heat dispersing design supporting a wide operating temperature that meets NEMA TS2 standards. The embedded software supports full Layer 2 management features, multi-form ring redundancy, network control, monitoring, security, and notification. The RocketLinx ES8509-XT also includes a built-in watchdog timer and digital input and relay output for event notification and problem alerts. The RocketLinx ES8509-XT provides the perfect foundation for building your industrial Ethernet or traffic and transportation network.

Five Gigabit SFP Ports for Flexible Network Planning

A unique feature of the RocketLinx ES8509-XT is the five Gigabit RJ45/SFP combo ports, which can improve performance dramatically compared to products with fewer Gigabit RJ45/SFP ports. Each combo comes with a flexible connection, as well as fiber or copper connection options. By selecting the appropriate fiber transceivers, the RocketLinx ES8509-XT offers the flexibility to meet your industrial application requirements with virtually any transmission distance.
