Brad Direct-Link switches come in 5- and 8-port modules and are IP67 sealed and feature an Ethernet switch solution to reduce cabling and installation costs
Brad Direct-Link switches are available in 5- and 8-port modules, both featuring push-pull technology. The IP67 sealed Direct-Link switch modules provide a fast, simple and secure on-machine Ethernet switch solution reducing network cabling and installation costs. The small footprint, field-proven, and rugged design make the Direct-Link switches ideal for heavy-duty transportation and military vehicle applications.

Relocating the switch closer to the machine reduces installation time and costs for lengthy wiring runs, cabling and protected cabinet enclosures.
