Brad® Direct-Link Industrial Ethernet Switches


Industrially hardened, managed and unmanaged Ethernet switches provide reliable, robust performance across complex networks


Molex's Brad® Direct-Link Industrial Ethernet SwitchesIndustrial-control applications require complex networks with high data-rates and timesensitive devices whilst harsh environments on the plant floor create vibration, heat and other hazards. Molex's Direct-Link® Ethernet switches meet the 3 main challenges posed by industrial Ethernet applications: determinism, robustness, and integration. Determinism is the assurance that control communication will occur in a set period of time. Delivery of information in the prescribed time requires the use of industrialized protocols: EtherNet/IP, PROFINET or Modbus TCP.

Unmanaged, standard duty (SD) switches in tough, Lexan-plastic enclosures provide a cost-effective network solution for a multitude of low-end applications. Heavy-duty (HD) aluminum enclosures with wide temperature operation provide solutions for tough industrial applications.

Easy configuration of managed switches with advanced flexibility and diagnostics provides a superior user experience.
