A new Gigabit-only switch offers 16 combo ports for copper and/or fiber ports and optional Layer 3 switching software. With its advanced bandwidth capacity, the Magnum 12KX Gigabit Managed Switch from GarrettCom is a backbone switch with applications in areas such as power utilities, surveillance and security, transportation, and heavy industry. With Layer 3 switching capability, based on high-performance routing using Layer 3 addressing information, the 12KX will more rapidly route large amounts of data in applications using complex networking techniques such as VLANs or multicast routing strategies. 

The Magnum 12KX is substation hardened, able to withstand industrial environments with high EMI, extended temperature range and significant atmospheric contamination. It has a non-blocking switching fabric to provide wire-speed performance on all ports, has an option to configure four ports for Power over Ethernet (PoE), uses sealed-box convection cooling, and has optional single or dual internal power supplies. The 12KX switch can be synchronized via SNTP or IEEE 1588 v2 precision timing, the latter of which ensures accuracy within 30 ns on all ports. It addresses a variety of applications with environmental certifications including IEC 61850 and RoHS compliancy, and has low voltage DC as well as worldwide AC/DC voltage power input options. 

The GarrettCom Magnum 12KX Gigabit Managed Switch provides 16 combo ports with built-in small form factor pluggable (SFP) ports—allowing a choice of fixed 10/100/1000 BASE-TX connectivity or fiber SFPs, and has a temperature rating of -40° to +85°C.
