Ethernet Switch ports

Azonix is a pioneer in the development of rugged industrial computing and communications equipment for Zone 1 hazardous areas. The ES1000 enables installers to route cabling and create networks more easily in hazardous environments. Its low-power, rugged design and versatile mounting options make it ideal for any industrial application in safe areas, Zone 1, or wherever a rugged Ethernet switch can enhance network connectivity.


The unit is compact and has an integral heat sink for cool operation. It has 4 IS ports for connections in hazardous areas and 1 safe area port for connection to a safe area Ethernet device.

Rugged and reliable Ethernet communications

The Azonix ES1000 enhances fast and versatile cabling requirements for performing HMI and networked communications in hazardous environments such as oil exploration, gas compression, chemical manufacturing, power plants, and other demanding applications.

  • Low installation and maintenance costs due to use of standard connectors and cabling (avoiding EEx’d’ connectors, armored cabling, etc.)
  • Fast installations and long service life
  • High-visibility LEDs for quick visual status read
  • Maximum bandwidth for faster performance and optimal value

The ES1000 incorporates internal barriers and isolated circuitry to guarantee safety and high-integrity signals with resistance to ambient EMI/RFI radiation. The use of IS switching for Ethernet enables easier placement and networking of control and interface equipment at point-of-attack and multiple access points in Zone 1 environments.

Industrial IS Ethernet switch enables versatile communication points

The Azonix ES1000 Zone 1 IS Switch brings ease of installation for network hub access points to hazardous environments. The Switch routes input to and from safe area network signals equipment equipment in safe areas or Zone 1 hazardous locations.
