Diamond Systems Corporation (Mountain View, CA) recently unveiled the Epsilon-24000 family of gigabit Ethernet switches. These rugged, managed Layer 2+ Ethernet switch modules offer up to 24 10/100/1000 Mbps copper twisted pair ports plus two small form factor pluggable (SFP) sockets in the compact PC/104 form factor measuring 4.5 x 3.8 inches (96 x 116 mm). Two models of the switch are available: The EPS-24016 includes 16 10/100/1000 copper ports, and the EPS-24026 contains 24 10/100/1000 ports plus 2 SFP sockets. Both models use a conduction cooling heat spreader for efficient thermal dissipation and mounting to the system enclosure. A heat sink accessory is also available.

Designed for use in rugged applications including industrial, on-vehicle and military environments, the Epsilon-24000 family operates over an extended temperature range of -40°C to +85°C. All I/O connectors are latching, providing enhanced reliability over the RJ-45 connectors used in commercial grade products. A 50% thicker PCB provides better protection against vibration in vehicle environments. The +5V to +34V wide range DC/DC power supply is compatible with all common vehicle and industrial power sources.
