FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Temecula, CA – September 23, 2009 – Opto 22, developer and manufacturer of the awardwinning
SNAP PAC System™ family of programmable automation controllers, I/O, and
accessories, has announced an agreement with Mobile, Alabama-based N-TRON Corporation to
market and sell the company’s extensive line of industrial Ethernet network switches and
wireless access points.
N-TRON switches are perhaps the most rugged, durable, and industrially-hardened components
available. Encased in coated steel enclosures specially designed to reduce noise, N-TRON
switches boast entended environmental specifications, such as up to -40 to 85 oC operating
temperatures, increased shock and vibration resistance, and a remarkable two million hours
mean time between failures (MTBF). These features—plus redundant power inputs with voltage
ranges as great as 10 VDC to 49 VDC—make these switches well suited for implementation in
harsh environments and applications in large manufacturing facilities, power utilities, electrical
substations, water treatment plants, and other processing facilities.
