The NS-205A has 5 Ethernet Switching ports that support 10/100 Base-TX, with a 10/100M auto-negotiation feature and auto MDI/MDI-X function. It can connect 5 workstations and automatically switches the transmission speed (10 Mbps or 100 Mbps) for corresponding connections. The flow control mechanism is also negotiated. There is activity/link/data rate LEDs for each port to aid trouble-shooting. Port connectors are shielded RJ-45.It contains "soft start" function with overload protection, high-low voltage protection. The width of the NS-205A is just 33mm, so it can be used where space is important.
The NS-205A switches provide +12 ~ 48 VDC redundant power inputs that can to install a second power source to ensure the continuous operation of the NS-205A.
The NS-205A have DIP switches for enabling or disabling broadcast storm protection, providing another level of flexibility for different industrial applications.
