Designed to mount to 35mm DIN rail, this compact switch is engineered specifically for sACN data distribution using Pathport Gateways, Choreo controllers, Cognito consoles and NSB or Vignette architectural wall stations.

Management features, such as VLANs, DHCP and IGMP multicast filtering, are configured with the free Pathscape software. Two gigabit SFP receptacles allow you to connect to larger networks with advanced features such as RSTP and EAPS for complete redundant backup.

  • 35mm DIN rail mountable
  • Features including IGMP querier and snooping, DHCP per VLAN, Dante-compliant QoS option, Art-Net to sACN conversion
  • Silent operation - fanless, convection-cooled design
  • Acts as PoE (Power-over-Ethernet) source to connected devices, up to 15W per port, on ports 1 through 12
  • Settable properties include Switch Name, Port Name, IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, VLAN configuration, Link speed, PoE allocation, DHCP pool, IGMP filtering
  • Reported properties include PoE usage, Serial Number, MAC address, firmware version, connected devices (LLDP compliant), link status, bandwidth usage
  • Sixteen RJ45 ports support 10/100Base-T speeds
