Datacom Systems 10/100/1000 Ethernet Tap Model Number: 10/100/1000-TAP

The 10/100/1000 Ethernet Tap provides a totally passive solution for networks with 10/100Mbps connections. Functioning in 10/100 mode, this network tap operates as a passive tap and will not lose a single bit of data between network devices in the rare case that power to both redundant power supplies is lost. The totally passive and non-directional front end eliminates the need for relay failover circuitry.

A convenient DIP switch on the back of the tap can be used to select auto-negotiation at 10/100 or fixed speed and duplex settings at 1000Mbps

At 1000Mbps speeds, the network tap uses a power fault relay which closes in the rare case that power to both redundant power supplies fails. This relay is only engaged at the 1000Mbps speed configuration.

The 10/100/1000 Tap’s fault tolerant design will help ensure that network performance and integrity will not be affected by power loss.

Permanent In-Line access to 10/100/1000 Ethernet links- eliminates the need for network connectors to be disconnected and connected each time a segment needs to be analyzed or monitored

Redundant power supply insures seamless monitoring even if the main power source is unavailable

Ideal for Security and Monitoring applications or as a portable network tap for troubleshooting different areas of your network that operate multiple Ethernet port speeds

View all seven layers of network traffic

View all traffic on both sides of full duplex links

Optional rack-mount package to mount 3 units (1U)
