The RocketLinx ES9528 is a managed Industrial Ethernet switch, equipped with 24 10/100BASE-TX ports and four gigabit RJ45/GBIC combo ports. The 4 gigabit combo port design allows 10/100/1000 triple speed, and the SFP ports accept all types of gigabit SFP transceivers, including SX, LX, LHX, ZX and XD for a variety of connections and distances. It is specially designed for control rooms where high-port density and performance are required.

The ES9528 typcially is mounted within a 19-inch rack, along with other 19-inch public servers or other network devices. When lower industrial switches are aggregated to the ES9528, the 24 port plus 4G design allows the connection of up to 12 100M rings plus 2 gigabit rings. Each ring has its own ring redundancy protection.

The RocketLinx ES9528 is a fan-less rackmount switch with low-power consumption and supports a wide operating temperature. It supports Jumbo frame featuring up to 9,216 bytes packet size for large file transmissions.

The embedded software supports full Layer 2 management features, multi-form ring redundancy, network control, monitoring, security, and notification. The RocketLinx ES9528 provides the perfect foundation for building your industrial Ethernet infrastructure.
