The Magnum 6KL Switch brings fiber port configurability for managed networking capabilities.  The 6KL switch is a compact, environmentally sealed 10-port Ethernet switch with an ambient temperature range of -40ºC to 85 ºC. The switch offers different levels of configurability for industrial networking applications in harsh environments including factory floor, power utility substations, traffic control, external physical security and water treatment.  It features the modular architecture shared by the Magnum 6K family of managed switches. It includes four 10/100Mb copper ports (regular or PoE) and up to six additional ports which can be combinations of Gigabit, 100Mb, and 10Mb fiber ports and copper ports. It is designed to handle stressful workloads. The 6KL switch is packaged in a hardened, convection-cooled sealed metal box, with optional conformal coating, and offers high EMI noise immunity. It can be ordered with power input choices that include: 24VDC for factory floor; 48V for tariffed carrier field facilities and for PoE-powered applications such as video surveillance; 125V or 250VDC for power substations; worldwide AC for transportation; and 12VDC for specialty vehicular applications.  All DC power input choices are available with dual-source for high availability.
