Belden (St. Louis, MO) extended its Hirschmann product range with a digital I/O media module for the MICE family of Fast and Gigabit Ethernet switches. When version 7.0 of the "Layer 2 Professional” software is installed on the switches, this module enables signals to be sent and status messages to be analyzed with four digital inputs and outputs. An auxiliary output provides 24 VDC voltage with 3W power to control the connected components directly without an additional power source. Further features include IP20 protection class, high shock and vibration resistance and extensive immunity to electrostatic discharges and magnetic fields. The standard version has a temperature range of 0 to +60 degrees C. Two versions with an extended range of -40 to +70 degrees C are also offered.
