November 2010 - Due to the growing demand for Industrial Ethernet routers, Contemporary Controls has developed the Skorpion IP Router (EIPR) an industrial grade router/switch with advanced features such as a stateful firewall, port forwarding, network address translation (NAT), port address translation (PAT) and dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP) on both the LAN and WAN sides. The convenience of a built-in Industrial Ethernet switch eliminates the expense of installing a separate switch.
The EIPR's built-in firewall provides security by allowing an industrial network to communicate through the IT network to the Internet, while blocking unwanted communications from the IT network.
For a machine containing multiple Ethernet devices with multiple IP addresses, the EIPR allows the entire machine to appear as one IP address. Using its DHCP server, the EIPR can provide IP addresses to all of the control devices in the machine and while having its own IP address set via a DHCP server on the WAN side.
The EIPR is webpage configurable via a standard web browser and can operate over the 0-60°C temperature range. Like other Skorpion Industrial Ethernet products, it is DIN-rail mountable and operates from a 24 VAC/VDC supply.
