EPS-8100-XT is a managed Layer 2+ Ethernet switch module offering eight 10/100/1000Mbps copper twisted pair ports on a PC/104 form-factor board.  It can be used standalone, without any connection to a single board computer, or in conjunction with a host CPU. The module’s built-in micro-controller handles configuration and management. On-board memory holds dual application images, boot code, MAC addresses, and other parameters, and can also be used for program execution.

Input power can be provided through the built-in, wide-range +7-36VDC power supply, enabling operation using industrial power sources. Alternatively, EPS-8100-XT can be powered from a +5VDC source. To support the temperature extremes of fixed and mobile applications in both indoor and outdoor environments, the module supports fanless operation over -40°C to +85°C.
