Embedded Blue® Boxed Solutions

AL200 Industrial GbE Switch
DIN-Rail Bracket or Wall Mount Plate

The AL200 Embedded Blue® is an eight port industrial Gigabit Ethernet switch box, 1000BASE-T, 100BASE-TX and 10BASE-T compliant. The box is available for DIN rail or wall mount, and requires a variable supply voltage 9-57VDC, applied via a pluggable terminal block.

The AL200 is based on the Marvell® 88E6390 self-managed Ethernet switch.
For AVB/TSN protocol and optional Wi-Fi support the box is also available as AL210, equipped with a Marvell® ARMADA® CPU in addition.
