Magnum P62-Series Hardened Switches
2.2
Installation and User Guide (12/02)
Product Description
The Magnum P62-Series Ethernet “Outdoor” Switches are designed to operate in
extended temperature applications and are suitable for use in environments with inhospitable high
/ low temperatures. Magnum P62-Series Hardened switches provide two built-in 100Mb fullduplex switched fiber ports so that several units can be daisy-chained. These fiber ports are
coupled with the convenience of six switched 10/100Mb copper (RJ45) ports for easy
connectivity to local nodes and devices. All these features come in one compact rugged unit.
The Magnum P62-Series hardened Switches are available in a wide variety of options,
including our Managed (mP62..) version. The Managed mP62 can be easily deployed in an
existing and mixed vendor Ethernet network because of its features and capability. The Managed
(mP62) equipped with MNS-mP software supports managed edge-switch functions including
Menu-driven User Interface for ease of use, SNMP, QoS, Telnet, Password Security, Port Settings
Control, Spanning Tree Protocol, Port-based VLAN, BootP / DHCP etc..
The two built-in fiber ports are designed with full-duplex 100Mbps switched capability.
The six copper (RJ-45) ports come with full / half-duplex-10/100-auto-negotiating ability. The
Magnum P62-Series Hardened Switches provide the switching speed and the reliability to
smoothly support multiple workgroups at 100Mbps or 10Mbps speed. The optional fiber ports are
normally configured and tested with Magnum P62 units in the factory and come available in
multi-mode and single-mode SC-type fiber connectors. For special fiber port types, request quote.
Designed specifically to operate in uncontrolled temperature applications, the hardened
Magnum P62’s high strength steel case functions as a heat sink to draw away the heat from the
internal electronics and dissipate it. The efficient design of P62-Series high strength steel cases
can easily handle the extreme heat of 75°°C (170°°F) mP62 or 70°°C (160°°F) P62F and extreme
cold of -40°°C (-40°°F). when properly installed (see Sec. 3.0).
Applications for Magnum P62-Series Hardened Switches include roadside traffic data
collection and control stations, unheated and or high temperatures locations, above-ceiling
(plenum) spaces (see sect.3.3.1 for details) and ceiling mounts in commercial buildings, industrial
boiler rooms, mines and quarries, irrigation and pipeline facilities, on-board ships, cell towers,
data communication huts and pedestals, aeronautical installations and military sites.
A Magnum P62-Series hardened Switch is easy to install and use. Addresses of attached
nodes are automatically learned and maintained, adapting the switching services to network
changes and expansions. Top-mounted LEDs provide extra advantage for the user to observe the
status information of each port. The Magnum P62-Series Hardened Switches generate high

Installation and User Guide (12/02)
performance plug-and-play operation in a rugged package. The high-strength steel enclosure gives
extra protection.
Each P62-Series Hardened Switch is non-blocking on all ports and has large packet
buffers and a 4K-node address table for advanced performance. A Magnum P62-Series Switch,
with store-and-forward switching ability, filters all faulty packets to minimize traffic congestion.
2.2.1
Magnum P62-Series chassis w/fiber SC (m.m. or s.m) connectors
Magnum P62F-5V
Magnum P62F
The Magnum P62-Series chassis houses one main PC board. The front side of the
chassis has a half dozen RJ-45 twisted-pair ports and two 100Mbps full-duplex fiber ports
(one on each side of the RJ-45 ports) as shown in the adjacent picture. The fiber ports operate
in full-duplex mode only to provide higher bandwidth and longer distances on fiber. All the
LEDs are mounted on the top cover to conveniently indicate operating status of all ports.
There is a power on (PWR) indicator and a SELF TEST (self-test at power up in
progress or failed) for the unit. For each RJ-45 (ports # 2 -7), there are Link and Activity
(LK/ACT) LEDs indicating traffic, 10/100 (ON for 100Mbps) LEDs indicating speed, and
full/half (F/H) duplex indicators. The fiber ports (#1 and 8), have (LK/ACT) indicators only.
The rugged design of the case using high-strength rugged 18-gauge steel enables this
product to withstand environments with inhospitable high / low temperatures, and makes it
suitable for “outdoors” temperatures, road-side pedestals, control rooms and military use.
For DC-powered models, the DC power plug connector or “jack” is in the left front of
the chassis. The DC Magnum P62-Series Model is typically used for power input of 24VDC

Installation and User Guide (12/02)
The serial (Console) port is provided on the right front of the Managed mP62 Switch to
use the Console Management Interface(CMI) to manage all functions of the switch.
In addition, the Link-Loss-Learn feature (patent pending) in mP62’s allows rapid
operating recovery from a link loss. The Link-Loss-Learn feature of the Magnum mP62
Ethernet Switch addresses issues that can occur when mP62’s are used in redundant network
configurations, such as when Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) is in use. With the Link-LossLearn feature, Magnum mP62s are better able to handle some fault recovery situations, and
they may improve network reliability and provide faster fault recovery accordingly. Thus the
immediate re-learning of the addresses of the attached devices results in fast re-routing of
traffic in mP62s. See http://www.garrettcom.com/mp62.htm for additional information
and application information. Without a redundant network topology, the Link-Loss-Learn
feature is of no known benefit and should be turned off.
Developed using unique thermal techniques (patent pending), mP62’s operate smoothly
to a max of 75°C, which is 5°C more than the P62F product ratings of 70°C. Equipped with
high thermal dissipation features (patent pending), power supply flexibility, management
(MNS-mP software) capability, and a convection-cooled sealed case, the mP62s are ideal for
power utility plants, substations, roadside traffic control stations, unheated or high
temperature industrial plant locations, commercial building above-the-ceiling locations, data
communications huts and pedestals, and military field operation sites. When mounted in the
field, an mP62 is typically fastened vertically to a wall or pedestal, with cables connected at
the bottom to provide protection of the connectors from dirt and dust. The managed mP62
Switch’s package is IEC 529 rated IP51 and, while not waterproof, it can be placed in
NEMA 4 boxes, IP65 enclosures and similar waterproof enclosures to provide an all-weather
outdoor solution.
The AC/DC Power Supply options for the Managed mP62 Hardened Switches are the
same as for the other P62F models. For detailed descriptions of Power Supply options, see
Section 3.3.
2.2.3
Managed Network Software ( MNS-mP ) for Magnum mP62
Magnum mP62’s come with licensed MNS-mP software, which allows a user to

Installation and User Guide (12/02)
Fiber port, SC Connectors
The Fast Ethernet fiber switched ports on the Magnum P62-Series operate at
fixed 100Mb speed and full-duplex mode for the best performance. The P62’s fiber ports are
factory-built as either a multi-mode or single-mode SC connector. A yellow label on the fiber port
connector will indicate if it is single-mode. Otherwise it is a multi-mode port. Each 100Mbps
fiber port performs as a switched port and as a traffic domain, providing a high bandwidth
backbone connection that supports long (up to 20km single-mode, or 40km special “long-reach”)
fiber cable distances for installation versatility. A fiber port of a P62F is shown here,
On Magnum P62-Series units, there are three LED’s
for each of the RJ-45 switched ports. The F/H indicates fullduplex when ON or half-duplex when OFF. The (LK/ACT)
LED is steady ON to indicate LINK, and blinking to indicate
transmitting / receiving. The 10/100 LED is ON for 100Mbps
and OFF for 10 Mbps (when LINK is made). For fiber ports,
the LEDs are the same except there is no F/H LED because
10Mb is not possible.
There must be a device connected to the Magnum
P62-Series unit via a cable. A proper link (LK light) must be made between both devices at each
end of the cable in order for each LINK LED to provide a valid indication of operating conditions.
2.4
Frame Buffering and Latency
The Magnum P62-Series Hardened Switch is a store-and-forward switch. Each frame
(or packet) is loaded into the Switch’s memory and inspected before forwarding can occur. This
technique ensures that all forwarded frames are of a valid length and have the correct CRC, (i.e.,
are good packets). This eliminates the propagation of bad packets, enabling all of the available
bandwidth to be used for valid information.
While other switching technologies such as "cut-through" or "express" impose minimal
frame latency, they will also permit bad frames to propagate out to the Ethernet segments
connected. The "cut-through" technique permits collision fragment frames, which are a result of
late collisions, to be forwarded to add to the network traffic. Since there is no way to filter frames
with a bad CRC (the entire frame must be present in order for CRC to be calculated), the result of
indiscriminate cut-through forwarding is greater traffic congestion, especially at peak activity.
Since collisions and bad packets are more likely when traffic is heavy, the result of store-andforward operation is that more bandwidth is available for good packets when the traffic load is
greatest.
www . GarrettCom . com
13
Magnum P62-Series Hardened Switches
Installation and User Guide (12/02)
To minimize the possibility of dropping frames on congested ports, each Magnum P62Series Hardened Switch dynamically allocates buffer space from an 1MB memory pool, ensuring
that heavily used ports receive very large buffer space for packet storage. (Many other switches
have their packet buffer storage space divided evenly across all ports, resulting in a small, fixed
number of packets to be stored per port. When the port buffer fills up, dropped packets result.)
This dynamic buffer allocation provides the capability for the maximum resources of the Magnum
P62-Series unit to be applied to all traffic loads, even when the traffic activity is unbalanced
across the ports. Since the traffic on an operating network is constantly varying in packet density
per port and in aggregate density, the Magnum P62-Series Hardened Switches are constantly
adapting internally to provide maximum network performance with the least dropped packets.
When the P62-Series Switch detects that its free buffer queue space is low, the Switch
sends industry standard (full-duplex only) PAUSE packets out to the devices sending packets to
cause “flow control”. This tells the sending devices to temporarily stop sending traffic, which
allows a traffic catch-up to occur without dropping packets. Then, normal packet buffering and
processing resumes. This flow-control sequence occurs in a small fraction of a second and is
transparent to an observer. See Section 4.6 for additional details.
Another feature implemented in Magnum P62-Series Hardened Ethernet Switches is a
collision-based flow-control mechanism (when operating at half-duplex only). When the Switch
detects that its free buffer queue space is low, the Hardened Switch prevents more frames from
entering by forcing a collision signal on all receiving RJ-45 half-duplex ports in order to stop
incoming traffic.
The latency (the time the frame spends in the Hardened Switch before it is sent along or
forwarded to its destination) of the P62-Series Hardened Ethernet Switch varies with the portspeed types, and the length of the frame is a variable here, as it is with all store-and-forward
switches. For 10 Mb-to-10 Mb or 10 Mb-to-100Mb or 100Mb-to-10 Mb forwarding, the latency
is 15 microseconds plus the packet time at 10Mb. For 100Mb-to-100Mb forwarding, the latency
is 5 microseconds plus the packet time at 100Mb.

Applications
The P62-Series is designed specifically for harsh temperature environments and brings
future-proof fiber and widely-used copper connectivity to out-of-the-way sites.
Example 1. Magnum P62F
In this example, a Magnum P62F Hardened Switch performs
roadside real time traffic data collection and transmits it to a remote control station over fiber.
Since multiple traffic control sites are long distances apart, they are all connected in series to each
other and to the central station. Some local users (using RJ-45 ports) may operate at 100Mbps,
and some users and utility devices may run at 10 Mbps. A Magnum P62-Series Hardened Switch
serves this requirement economically and efficiently. The six full- and half-duplex switched ports
make the required setup simple for collection of traffic data. The uncontrolled “outdoor”
temperature feature and high reliability of the P62F make it suited to the site.
The two 100Mbps full-duplex fiber ports easily fulfill the long distance connection and
provide high bandwidth for fast movement of data. The advance design of sealed P62F takes care
of it cooling method. The mechanical design of the Magnum P62F also enables it to be easily
placed in a NEMA 4 enclosure to provide an all-weather outdoor solution.

providing a protected Ethernet network facility as part of the building infrastructure. The steel
enclosure and 20-70VDC power input qualifies the Magnum P62F to provide a dependable
solution for any temperature un-controlled location environments. The rugged enclosure with
cable strain feature gives extra protection and security to the cabling to hold the copper and fiber
cable more securely with the Switch ports.

Fig .2.6.3 The Magnum Managed mP62 in a ring topology application
In an uncontrolled temperature environment where the data mining needs to
be securely collect in a repository connected to the same Ethernet network, its best to develop a
redundant network path in a ring topology so that all the important data mining should not be
interrupted by any faulty disconnect of any cabling. The area covered for this ring Topology
network is 12Km.
The managed mp62 loaded with MNS-mP software with its two fiber ports can be easily
deployed in a ring topology application to fulfill the network requirement. The Managed mp62
equipped with STP, VLAN, QoS etc features provide a very economical and efficient solution to
this requirement. The advanced Link-Loss-Learn feature will provide a very secure and effective
solution in this particular kind of environment. The advanced Link-Loss-Learn feature along with
Spanning Tree Protocol efficiently control the ring topology environment with faster fault
recovery and thus will improve the network reliability.
The managed mp62 Hardened Switch is specially designed to operate in uncontrollable
temperature applications and its wide variety of AC/DC options also qualify this hardened Switch
to deploy in harsh applications.

Installation and User Guide (12/02)
INSTALLATION
This chapter provides instructions for installing Magnum P62-Series units.
3.1
Locating Magnum P62F-Series 10/100Mb Ethernet Switches
The location of a Magnum P62-Series Hardened Switch is dependent upon the physical
layout of the network. The rugged 18-gauge sheet steel case that acts as a heat sink will normally
protect the P62-Series from accidental damage in any application setting. Install P62F models so
that the metal case of the unit is in contact with a metal surface (such as a pedestal in the earth or
an equipment enclosure box) which does not exceed the ambient rating of the unit. Install mP62
models mounted vertically, attached to any wood or metal surface or in free air.
Designed primarily for specific applications such as roadside traffic data collection and
control stations, unheated and or high temperatures locations, above-the-ceiling mounts in
commercial buildings, industrial boiler rooms, mines and quarries, irrigation and pipeline
facilities, on-board ships, cell towers, data communication huts and pedestals, aeronautical
installations and military sites, the Magnum P62s support DC power input for high reliability and
AC power for convenience in out-of-the way locations. Locate the P62-Series unit near any AC
power (or any 20-70VDC three-wire (+, GND, -) power source for DC models) that is within the
range of the unit. When installing the unit, be sure to maintain an open view of the top surface to
visually monitor the status LEDs.
3.1.1
Mounting position and materials
The Magnum P62-Series Hardened Switch should be securely mounted in a vertical
position with appropriate screws. Rubber “feet” (if any) that would insulate the case from metalto-metal contact with the mounting surface should be removed. The full temperature rating of the
P62F unit cannot be achieved if it is not properly mounted on metal.
The Magnum P62-Series Hardened switches are quite heavy (3.5 lbs, 1.6 Kg) because
of its 18-gauge high-strength steel case enclosure. Because of its weight, it is very important to
select a sturdy place and carefully attach it to metal surface. Attaching P62F’s to a metal surface is
necessary to allow the thermal heat transfer from the case, achieving rated ambient temperature
specifications. The mP62’s can be mounted on any material.
3.1.2
Mounting dimensions
Each Magnum P62-Series Hardened Switch is normally mounted with screws in a
vertical (cables at the bottom) position. The base plate of the unit has screw holes cut out, two top
and two bottom. The spacing for the mounting screws is a rectangle 3.35” x 7.92” (8.5cm x

20.1cm) center-to-center. Four user-supplied screws, ¼” max diameter, attach the P62’S base
plate to the vertical mounting surface. The PSX Power Source mounting is similar. The
mechanical drawings in Figures 1 & 2 below provide the mounting holes measurement
information for the PSX unit (mounted on top, if present) and for the Magnum P62-Series unit.

Note – see also “Cable Strain Relief Feature, Section 3.4.
The Magnum P62-Series Ethernet Switches (P62F model illustrated here) can be
connected to the following three
media types: 100BASE-TX,
10BASE-T and 100BASE-FX.
CAT 5 cables should be used when
making 100BASE-TX connections.
When the ports are used as
10BASE-T ports, CAT 3 may be
used. In either case, the maximum
distance for unshielded twisted pair
cabling is 100 meters (328 ft). For
fiber port 100BASE-FX multimode, 50/125 or 62.5/125 microns
cabling can be used, whereas for single-mode, 9/125 microns cabling should be used. Fiber
cabling supports much longer cable distances and higher bandwidth than copper wiring.

100Mbps. Note that the auto-sensing function does not sense the cable type.
NOTE 2. It is recommended that to fulfill the requirement of UL2043 smoke tests, the cable (RJ45, Fiber, AC/DC power cable) provided by the user must be rated as UL2043

Installation and User Guide (12/02)
Using standard twisted pair media, insert either end of the cable with a RJ-45 plug into
the RJ-45 connector of the port. Note that, even though the connector is shielded, either
unshielded or shielded cables and wiring may be used.
Connect the other end of the cable to the corresponding device.
Use the LINK LED to ensure proper connectivity by noting that the LED will be
illuminated when the unit is powered and proper connection is established. If this does not
help, ensure that the cable is connected properly and that the device on the other end is
powered and is not defective.
For Port # 1 or 1SW, if the LINK LED is not illuminated, move the switch which has a
cross-over or up-link for linking to another hub or Switch.
3.2.2
Connecting Fiber Optic SC-type, "Snap-In"
The following procedure applies to installations using SC-type fiber connectors. This
procedure applies to ports using multi-mode SC fiber connectors.
1. Before connecting the fiber optic cable, remove the protective dust cap / plug from the end
of the fiber connectors, exposing the ports opening. Save the dust cover / plug for future
use, in case the fiber cable needs to be unplugged for service.
2. Wipe clean the ends of the dual connectors with a soft cloth or lint-free lens tissue
dampened in alcohol. Make certain the connectors are clean before connecting. Then,
insert the square male connector into the SC female jack of the Fiber port connector until
it clicks and secures.
Note:
One strand of the duplex fiber optic cable may be coded using color bands
at regular intervals; you should use the color-coded strand on the associated ports at
each end of the fiber optic cable segment.
3. Connect the Transmit (TX) port on the Magnum Fiber port to the Receive (RX) port of the
remote device. Begin with the color-coded strand of the cable for this first TX-to-RX
connection. Note – the two male square-end SC cable strands may be fastened together to
plug as a unit.
4. Connect the Receive (RX) port to the Transmit (TX) port of the remote device. Use the
non-color coded fiber strand for this.
5. The LINK LED for the fiber connector will illuminate when a proper connection has been
established at both ends (and when power is ON in the unit). If LINK is not lit after cable
connection, the normal cause is improper cable polarity. Swap the fiber cables at the fiber
connector to remedy this situation.
3.2.3
Connecting Fiber Optic ST-type, “Snap-In” (Optional)
The following procedure applies to installations using ST-type fiber connectors, i.e., using
multi-mode ST.
When connecting fiber media to ST connectors, simply twist on the two round male
connectors into the ST female jacks of the Fiber connector until it clicks and secures.
3.2.4
Connecting Single-Mode Fiber Optic
When using single-mode fiber cable, be sure to use single-mode fiber port connectors.
Single-mode fiber cable has a smaller diameter than multi-mode fiber cable (9/125 microns for
single-mode, 50/125 or 62.5/125 microns for multi-mode where xx/xx are the diameters of the
core and the core plus the cladding respectively). Single-mode fiber allows full bandwidth at
www . GarrettCom . com
22
Magnum P62-Series Hardened Switches
Installation and User Guide (12/02)
longer distances, about 20Km with the single-mode SC.
The same procedures as for multi-mode fiber apply to single-mode fiber connectors.
Follow the steps listed in Section 3.2.2 above.
3.2.5
Power Budget Calculations for P62-Series Fiber Media
Receiver Sensitivity and Transmitter Power are the parameters necessary to compute the
power budget. To calculate the power budget of different fiber media installations using Magnum
products, the following equations should be used:
OPB (Optical Power Budget) = PT(min) - PR(min)
where PT = Transmitter Output Power, and PR = Receiver Sensitivity
Worst case OPB = OPB - 1dB(for LED aging) - 1dB(for insertion loss)
Worst case distance = {Worst case OPB, in dB} / [Cable Loss, in dB/Km]
where the “Cable Loss” for 62.5/125 and 50/125µm (m.m.) is 2.8 dB/km,
and the “Cable Loss” for 100/140 (Multi-mode) is 3.3 dB/km,
and the “Cable Loss” for 9/125 (Single-mode) is 0.5 dB/km

* Note: The use of either multi-mode or single-mode fiber to operate at 100Mbps speed over
long distances (i.e., over approx. 400 meters) can be achieved only if the following
factors are both applied:
•
The 100Mb fiber segment must operate in full-duplex (FDX) mode, and
•
The worst-case OPB of the fiber link must be greater than the fiber cable’s passive
Attenuation.
(Attenuation = Cable loss + LED aging loss + Insertion loss + safety factor)

Installation and User Guide (12/02)
Connections to NICs which support Auto-Negotiation, RJ-45 ports
The copper ports of Magnum P62-Series Hardened Switches will function properly with
NICs (Network Interface Cards) which support Auto-Negotiation, and the Fast Link Pulse (FLP)
coding for the 100BASE-TX signaling system. When connecting a NIC to a P62, it may be
necessary to reload the NIC drivers on the user device if the NIC has been communicating with a
protocol other than 100BASE-TX (such as 10BASE-T). When 100Mb speed is agreed and in use,
the 10/100 LED is steady ON. It is OFF if there is no traffic or if 10 Mbps traffic.

Cable Strain Relief Feature on all P62-Series models
The Magnum P62-Series Hardened Switches are designed to use in extended
temperature environments, which qualifying them to be used in roadside traffic data collection
and control stations, above-the-ceiling locations in commercial buildings, etc. They are usually
mounted vertically so that the cables hang out the bottom. There is a cable strain relief feature
provided as part of the package design
The Magnum P62-Series Hardened Switches have a tie wrap holder as part of the base
plate of the unit for cable strain relief. The strain-relief feature is applicable to power cables as
well as to Ethernet cables, both twisted-pair copper and fiber. Cable tie-wraps can secure the
cables and can be attached to the base plate HOOK provided at the bottom-front of the unit. In the
event that the attached cable is pulled, the tie-wrap cable strain relief feature protects the cable
connection from coming loose. This feature provides a more reliable and robust installation and
operation.
The figure below of a P62F model illustrates the strain-relief feature, using tie-wraps.

OPERATION
This section describes the function and operation of the Magnum P62-Series Switches.
4.1
Dual-Speed Functionality, and Switching
The Magnum P62-Series Hardened Switch provide six 10/100 RJ-45 switched
ports, and two 100Mb fiber ports. The architecture supports a dual speed switching environment,
with two built-in full-duplex “future-proof” fiber ports. The six RJ-45 copper ports equipped with
auto-negotiation capability.
The switched RJ-45 ports are full / half duplex and auto-sensing for speed. (See section
2.2). When the connected device is 10 Mbps, P62s obey all the rules of 10 Mbps Ethernet
configurations. The 10 Mbps users share a 10 Mbps traffic domain, and can “communicate with”
100Mbps users as well as 100Mbps domain. Similarly, the 100Mbps traffic obeys the rules of
100Mbps Ethernet, and can communicate with 10Mb domain too.
All Magnum P62 units are plug-and-play devices. There is no software configuration to
be done at installation or for maintenance. The Half / full duplex mode for the RJ-45 switched RJ45 ports is user dependent and changes (by auto-negotiation) to full or half duplex as the unit
attached with these ports. The internal functions of P62-Series Switch is described below.
Switching, Filtering and Forwarding
Each time a packet arrives on one of the switched ports, the decision is taken to either
filter or to forward the packet. Packets whose source and destination addresses on the same port
segment will be filtered, constraining them to one port and relieving the rest of the network from
processing them. A packet whose destination address is on another port segment will be
forwarded to the appropriate port, and will not be sent to the other ports where it is not needed.
Packets needed for maintaining the operation of the network (such as occasional multi-cast
packets) are forwarded to all ports.
The Magnum P62-Series Hardened Switch operate in the store-and-forward switching
mode, which eliminates bad packets and enables peak performance to be achieved when there is
heavy traffic on the network.
Switching, Address Learning
The Magnum P62-Series units have an address table capacity of 4K node addresses, and
are suitable for use in large networks. They are self-learning, so that as nodes are added or
removed or moved from one segment to another, the P62-Series automatically keeps up with node
locations.

Magnum P62-Series Hardened Switches
Installation and User Guide (12/02)
An address-aging algorithm causes least-used addresses to fall out in favor of new
frequently-used addresses. To reset the address buffer, cycle power down-and-up.
4.2
Auto-negotiation and Speed-sensing
All six RJ-45 ports independently support auto-negotiation for speed in 10BASE-T and
100BASE-TX modes. Operation is according to the IEEE 802.3u standard.
When a RJ-45 cable connection is made, and each time a LINK is enabled, autonegotiation takes place. The P62-Series advertises its capability for 10 or 100 Mbps speed, and
the device at the other end of the cable should similarly advertise / respond and both sides will
agree to the speed being used. Depending upon the device connected, this will result in
agreement to operate at either 10 Mbps or 100Mbps speed.
When the ‘LK/ACT’ LED is ON, steady ON indicates LINK with no traffic, blinking
ON indicates the port is transmitting / receiving. The port has auto-negotiated for operation. (If a
P62s RJ-45port is connected to a non-negotiating device, it will default to 10 Mbps speed and
half-duplex mode, per the IEEE 802.3u standard).
4.3
LED’s for P62-Series Hardened Switch
POWER: Illuminates GREEN, steady on when power applied.
SELF TEST: Indicates the self-test at power up was not successful.
F/H:
ON = Full-Duplex and Link, OFF = Half-Duplex and / or no Link.
LK/ACT: Per port, steady ON for LINK with no traffic, blinking indicates port is
transmitting and receiving.
10/100:
Per port, ON = 100Mbps; OFF = 10 Mbps (when LINK is made).
