PRODUCT DATASHEET
ET-9RS
REAL-TIME-RING™ ETHERNET SWITCH WITH 9 PORTS
The ET-9RS is a 9 port industrial Ethernet switch featuring
Sixnet’s Real-Time-Ring™ which provides very fast, faulttolerant network redundancy and prioritized message delivery
needed in critical real-time systems. These Rings self-configure
and just run, without the complex configuration steps required
by alternative solutions. This advanced technology delivers
reliability and performance, saves you money, and makes your
job easier.
