Diamond Systems Corporation

sabrenet-12000The ruggedly designed SabreNet 12000 is a 12-port, managed Layer 2+ Ethernet switch system in a IP67 rated, MIL-STD-810G compatible small form factor case measuring only 6.4”W x 5.4”D x 2.7”H. It is ideally suited for vehicle and other harsh environment applications.

The new SabreNet 12000 is a member of Diamond’s Sabre family that includes SabreCom (mission critical computers) EPS-12000-CMand SabreNet (Ethernet switches) systems.

The switch is designed around Diamond’s EPSM-10GX rugged Gigabit Ethernet switch module in Mini form factor (84x55mm / 3.3x2.2in). It uses a same-size carrier board to provide the power and magnetics circuitry to complete the electronics circuitry. The board level Ethernet switch module and 2-board switch solution are also available as off-the-shelf products from Diamond.

Switch features:

  • 12 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet ports with non-blocking wire-speed performance and layer 2+ management features
  • RS-232 serial port for out-of-band management as well as web interface available on any port
  • Wide 6-34VDC input power supply enables reliable operation with industrial power and vehicle power systems
  • Latching I/O connectors on the internal electronics provide enhanced reliability over the RJ-45 connectors used in commercial Ethernet switches
  • All firmware is provided enabling immediate operation without development effort
  • Designed for IP67 and MIL-STD-810 compliance
  • Optional MIL grade power supply with MIL-STD-461, 704, and 1275 compatibility
  • D38999 series III connectors

SabreNet 12000 is one of the SabreNet series of rugged switch systems that include the 24-port SabreNet 24000 and the SabreNet 24G2X with 24 copper ports and 2 10G Fiber ports. For more small form factor, managed, Layer 2+ Ethernet switch solutions, check out Diamond’s Epsilon family of switches.
