Unlike the Ethernet switches in your wiring closet or computer center, the Ethernet switches at the edges of your network have to put up with the bumps and dirt that happen out in the real world. This is where Heavy-Duty Edge Switches from Black Box come in.
Ideal for use in dusty or dirty environments, Hardened Heavy-Duty Edge Switches are tough switches that enable you to expand your network into harsh factory floor environments. Their sturdy, metal case functions as a heat sink so no internal airflow is needed for cooling. A sealed case resists contaminants such as dust, dirt, moisture, smoke, and insects.
