EtherWAN EX42300 Series — Compact Hardened Unmanaged 4-port 10/100BASE (4 x PoE) +2-port Gigabit Ethernet Switch

Internet Data Centers



The EX42300 Series, Hardened Unmanaged 4-port 10/100BASE (4 x PoE) + 1-port 10/100/1000BASE-T + 1-port 1000BASE-X Gigabit Ethernet Switch is a new member added to EtherWAN's compact switch line. The EX42300's slim design with DIN-Rail mount format allows easy installations at space-sensitive locations; the LED indicators on the front panel also displays PoE, Link, Power, and Alarm statuses for easy monitoring.

The 2 Gigabit uplink ports on the EX42300 provide full non-blocking switching performance to fulfill the expectations of critical applications such as, wireless AP connections, multicast traffic of machine control messages, or video surveillance systems that may require non-blocking uplink transmission.

The EX42300 is equipped with 4 PoE / PSE ports which are fully compliant to IEEE802.3at standard outputting up to 30 watts per port. Not only with superior PoE performance, the EX42300 is built in DC/DC power converter circuit which enables 24 / 48VDC power inputs for industrial applications.

Although unmanaged, the EX42300 provides IEEE802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) and IEEE802.1p Quality of Service (QoS). There is also a DIP switch for enabling / disabling port fault alarm, broadcast storm and jumbo frame features.

What's more to -40°C to 75°C hardened operating temperature, the EX42300's circuit is specially designed for LAN port protection. The data ports can be fully secured when lightning strike occurs. This protection can be guaranteed no matter the power is given from a non-isolated or an isolated power supply unit, making the EX42300 stays robust in harsh environments.

The EX42300 Series offers the following benefits to users:


Two uplink Gigabit ports available (1 x 10/100/1000TX + 1 1000SX/LX/SFP)

  • One Gigabit going into the switch port from the host and one Gigabit leaving the switch port towards the host.
  • Support versatile Gigabit fiber optic ports from dual-core 850nm, 1310nm to single core 1310nm/1510nm, with SC or ST connector.
  • SFP options are ready with manufacturer's default transceiver modules tested.
  • Better throughput rate to transmit larger packet size data.

Power over Ethernet

  • No extra power cord needed for PD installations.
  • Provides 4-port PoE function with IEEE802.3at up to 30W per port.

Relay Alarm

  • Detected failure is reported immediately to notify network managers

Quality of service (QoS)

  • 4 Priority markings are carried in Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) tags so that users can use existing resources efficiently and ensure the required level of service without reactively expanding their networks.

Green Ethernet

  • Complies with IEEE802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) standard to allow less power consumption during periods of low data transmission.
