Delivering the universal solution for plant networks

Delivering the universal solution for plant networks
GarrettCom Europe has developed an innovative industrial Ethernet converter switch which provides a ready upgrade to gigabit performance without compromising on transmission distance. The new CSG14 converter switches allow industrial installations with multi-mode fibre to achieve 2000m gigabit connectivity that has previously only been available when using single-mode fibre cable.

While transmission distances of 2000m over multi-mode fibre are standard for 10/100Mb Ethernet, any upgrade to gigabit speeds has always been a problem because the distance has been limited to just 550m. Users looking to upgrade have been forced to rework their network installations around shorter transmission distances and/or single-mode topologies, implying significant time and expense. With the introduction of the CSG14 converter switches, GarrettCom Europe has overcome these problems, and made the upgrade path simple and cost-effective.

The CSG14 is a high-speed flexible edge-of-the-network industrial Ethernet media converter and switch combination that includes two 10/100/1000 copper ports and a Gb fiber port in a small form factor switch chassis that can be configured to support any multi-mode or single-mode Gb fiber connector type.
