The Case Communications IFE 16T 4GB MC 20-Port Industrial Ethernet Switch is designed to meet high reliability requirements demanded by industrial applications.  The IFE 16T 4GB MC is easily managed through a Web GUI or CLI. Four Mini GBIC ports can extend the network with distances  up to 140km between switches using industry standard SFP’s.  The SFP Digital Monitoring Interface (DMI) monitors the fibre, parameters such as Rx level, Tx level and temperature. The Case Communications, IFE 16T 4GB MC is IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613 approved.

Industrial Resilient Ring Technology

The IFE 16T 4GB MC 20-Port Industrial Ethernet Switch uses “Advanced Resilient-Ring” technology which provides an auto-recovery-path within 20ms in the event of a path or switch failure. The ring can be established with up to 256 Industrial Switches.  Features include QoS for 4 queues, 801.q VLAN, IGMP snooping and query mode as well as SNTP and SMTP. An Industrial Switch relay contact system can immediately notify of Power failure and/or Port down events.
