Gigabit Ethernet switch series

Gigabit Ethernet switch series

The N-Tron Series NT5000 Gigabit Ethernet Switch Series from Red Lion, with N-Ring™ technology and DHCP Server, provides high-speed redundancy and increased usability to the company’s Industrial Ethernet switch series.

As industries modernize their facilities and digitally transform operations to leverage the power of industrial data, switch performance and speed are essential, along with the simplicity of configuration and management. Red Lion’s proprietary N-Tron® Series N-Ring™ Manager adds reliability to these standout switches, with fast ring healing times of ~30ms to prevent disruptions.

Robust ring management and diagnostic tools provide notification of a break as well as a detailed fault map. The new firmware also includes a DHCP Server for automatic IP address assignments. Support for DHCP Server option 61 and Relay agent with option 82 further simplifies the process of assigning IP addresses when field devices are moved or added to the network.

Red Lion gigabit managed switches are designed for ease of use, security and reliability. Innovative features make installation and setup easy via a configuration wizard, while an industry-ready, rugged design ensures smooth operation in harsh environments.

And with authenticated access and VLANS, you can be sure that it’s only your team accessing your devices. Our industrial networking portfolio is one of the most robust in the market, so infrastructure is available when customers need it.

Connectivity, reliability and security

Clear, comprehensive and fast network management is essential for organizations to achieve maximum uptime. The NT5000’s simple graphical user interface includes a logical view showing active ports, power supply, temperature and contact relay status of the switch and color-coded gauges for port traffic and events to allow administrators to quickly identify and address possible network disruptions in real-time, helping lower total cost of ownership. The NT5000 gigabit switches are available in 6, 8, 10, 16 and 18 port configurations in all copper or a mix of copper and fiber options that can meet specific installation requirements.
