The DuraNET 1059 is a rugged unmanaged Ethernet switch node designed to provide local area network (LAN) connectivity to IP-enabled computers and other net-centric devices. Weighing in at less than 2lbs (0.86 kg) and hardened with a black anodize finish, internal heatsinking and MIL-38999 connectors, this enclosed Fast Ethernet switch unit serves as a highly reliable, compact solution for expanding port density to DuraMAR mobile IP routers and other netcentric solutions.
Featuring five IEEE 802.3/u complaint (10/100mpbs) Ethernet transceiver ports and support for auto-MDI-MDIX network installation, the robust DuraNET 1059 requires no configuration and is designed for simple plug-and-play operation. Any of its five transceiver ports are flexibly designed to serve as an uplink. Support for auto-crossover, auto-polarity, auto-negotiation, and bridge loop prevention are all integrated.
The DuraNET 1059's galvanically isolated power supply and Ethernet switch components support operation from -40°C to +70°C, as well as tolerance to MIL-STD-810F shock and vibration profiles experienced by helicopter and fighter aircraft. Its miniature form factor, low power consumption, and lightweight chassis make the DuraNET 1059 an ideal solution for airborne or ground vehicle networking applications.
