The first of the ESWB models the IS420ESWBH1A switch is the second hardware version of the IONet Switch. This switch is made up of sixteen 100/100Base-TX RJ45 copper ports. This switch only has one fiber port which is described as a multi-mode 100Base-FX port with an LC-type connector. The fiber ports are the only distinct difference between the five ESWB models.
As with the previous hardware models for the ESWx switches, the IS420ESWBH1A can also be mounted in various configurations, either parallel or perpendicular, there is a difference between which clips can be used in the perpendicular mounting. The clip used with the ESWB switch in the perpendicular mounting orientation is the 259B2451BVP4 clip. Note that when this switch is being installed as a replacement it can be installed in the DIN-rail or panel mount.
When the IS420ESWBH1A is being used with an Ethernet network it has the ability to be used with up to three networks which will be equal to the controller redundancy of dual, simplex, or TMR controllers.
The IS420ESWBH1A switch is labeled as active by General Electric in the GEI-100869 Mark VIe Industrial Ethernet/IONet Switches guide. The information is found on page three and within the IS420ESWBH#A IONet Switch Specifications table.
