Contemporary Controls - BAS Ethernet Switch Provides Panel Installation With No Configuration Requirements  - Booth 1347

Downers Grove, Illinois - The industry is in consensus that Ethernet can effectively control the automation of building services. Contemporary Controls has acknowledged this fact with the design of the industrial-grade, Ethernet Building Automation System (BAS) Switch - delivering a high level of performance at a low cost.  This productís functionality also benefits the building owner because the BAS Switch provides a well-documented installation. The label on the switch can be written upon so that port connections can be recorded as to the location of the connected equipment. Each shielded RJ-45 port of the BAS Switch supports the auto-negotiation protocol in order to select data rate, duplex and flow control. Half- and full-duplex is supported as well as flow control. All five ports are Auto-MDIX compliant so any port can function as an uplink port to another switch, eliminating crossover cables in the field. These features enable a truly Plug and Play (PnP) device because no special cabling or configuration is necessary. Once power is removed and reapplied, this switch will return to operations without fail.
