Dual-Speed 100M/1G SFP Network Tap
ETAP-2406 from Dualcomm is a Network Tap with two inline ports for use with small form-factor pluggable (SFP) modules. The two SFP modules can be any Ethernet SFP modules that are in compliance with the Ethernet standards for Gigabit Ethernet (1Gbps), Fast Ethernet (100Mbps), copper Ethernet (100Base-T or 1000Base-T) or fiber Ethernet (100Base-FX or 1000Base-X). A selector switch is used to select the speed of the two SFP modules that are to be used with ETAP-2406.
This zero-delay inline device that introduces no additional packet latency. Such a unique feature is usually demanded when a network tap is used in a real-time industrial network such as EtherCAT and PROFINET. It also offers offers four (4x) gigabit copper monitor ports, which can be used as four separate aggregate monitor ports or two pairs of non-aggregate monitor ports. A selector switch is used to configure which monitor mode is to be adopted. In the aggregate monitor mode, each of the four monitor ports outputs a copy of aggregated inline traffic in both directions. In the non-aggregate monitor mode, each monitor port outputs a copy of inline traffic in only one direction.
Key Features and Benefits:
- Network Tap with two SFP inline ports
- Support both Gigabit (1Gbps) and Fast Ethernet (100Mbps) SFPs,
- Support both copper and fiber Ethernet SFPs
- Zero packet delay. Great for use in a real-time industrial Ethernet network
- Four monitor ports available in either aggregate or non-aggregate monitor modes
- USB powered
