Perle IDS-105F Industrial Ethernet Switch obtains FCC Class B Certification

The IDS-105F DIN Rail Switch is the first and only on the market designed and optimized to the strict emissions testing level that qualifies for Class B Certification.

NASHVILLE, TN - May 02th, 2014 — Perle Systems, a global manufacturer of Industrial-grade Ethernet Switches and secure device networking solutions, announces the first FCC Class B certified Industrial Ethernet Switch.

All electronic products sold in the United States are required by the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) to tested and marked showing that the product complies with emissions and immunity standards. Most products regulated by FCC 47 Part 15, into one of two categories – Class A or Class B.

Class B limits are more stringent than Class A limits and the Class B certification process is administratively more rigorous than the Class A verification process.
