Sept. 11, 2011 - PRLog -- Kingsport, TN, August 17, 2011-- Protokraft today announced the availability of its WILDCAT Series Ethernet Switches with D38999 fiber optic external connector interfaces to improve network performance and reliability in harsh environment applications. Protokraft WILDCAT series unmanaged Ethernet switches consist of 4x1000Base-SX or 100Base-FX ports integrated into a panel mounted MIL-DTL-38999 connector assembly. The WILDCAT series unmanaged Ethernet switch consists of two Ethernet interfaces for internal and external connections. The external interface of the WILDCAT series Ethernet switches is a D38999/23-21 fiber optic connector with 4x 1000Base-SX or 100Base-FX compliant fiber optic Ethernet ports. The internal 10/100/1000Base-T interface of the WILDCAT series Ethernet switch is a ribbon coax cable to *Samtec® SMT connector assembly enabling interconnection to a motherboard, daughter card or backplane. Power to the unit is supplied through the Samtec connector.

Protokraft introduced the WILDCAT Series of Panel Mounted Ethernet Switches with D38999 fiber optic connector interfaces for military, aerospace, petrochemical, mining, industrial or utility applications where significant levels of shock, vibration and extreme temperature ranges are experienced. These components are designed for use in harsh environments where small size, weight reduction and resistance to harsh environments are valued.

WILDCAT series 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet switches enable high speed network communications in harsh environments.
