Wildcat 4+1 Port Ethernet Switch

Wildcat series panel mounted Ethernet switches consist of 4x1000Base-SX or 4x100Base-FX fiber optic switch ports plus 1x10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet switch ports integrated into a panel mounted MIL-DTL-38999 optical connector assembly.

The electrical interface to the Wildcat series panel mounted Ethernet switches is a Samtec® high density ribbon coax cable assembly enabling SMT interconnection to a customer’s backplane, motherboard or daughtercard. Wildcat series panel mounted D38999 Ethernet switches are vibration isolated, environmentally hardened components designed for use in harsh environment applications.
