Our broad product portfolio of Industrial Ethernet Switches offers you the right switch for every application. We would be pleased to advise you personally on the selection.
Unmanaged Industrial Ethernet Switch
With our unmanaged Ethernet switches, you can quickly and cost-efficiently set up an Industrial Ethernet network. The Ethernet switches are immediately ready for operation via plug-and-play. The LEDs on the housing provide a quick overview of the status of network communication at all times. The unmanaged Industrial Ethernet switches are typically used in smaller networks that do not require management functions. Easy to use, robust, for industrial purposes and with 5 to 16 ports, the unmanaged switches are an inexpensive and durable solution.
Managed Industrial Ethernet Switch
Managed Ethernet switches offer comprehensive configuration options and are often used in large networks. They provide IT administrators with comprehensive control functions that enable them to achieve optimal network performance and reliability. The Industrial Ethernet Switch can be set up via the RS-232 port or via Ethernet using Telnet or a web browser.
Specifications of Managed Ethernet Switches:
- 6 to 24 LAN ports
- 2 to 24 Gigabit ports
- SNMP monitoring via SNMP
- Turning individual ports on/off and detecting the cable assignment (Auto MDI/MDI-X)
- Bandwidth allocation and duplex operation per port
- IP address management
- Filters for MAC addresses
- spanning tree
- Port mirroring for network traffic monitoring
- Quality of Service (QoS)
- VLAN settings
- 802.1X Network Access Control
- IGMP snooping for bandwidth-saving image transmission
- Link Aggregation or Port Trunking
Layer 2 switches work with Data-Link Layer Addresses (MAC). They are very fast in data transfer because they only sort data packets by MAC addresses.
Industrial Fiber Switch
When it comes to overcoming long distances at high speed, communication via fiber optics (BASE-F) has clear advantages compared to copper cables (BASE-T). With a fiber port switch, the range of an Ethernet network can be considerably increased via fiber optics. A further advantage of Ethernet switches with fiber port is the strong industrial environment. Communication via fiber optic cables is less susceptible to temperature fluctuations and cannot be affected by electromagnetic interference.
Redundant Ring Ethernet Switch for real-time applications
Redundant ring switches enable reliable communication in the Ethernet network. Due to the ring topology, each Redundant Ring Switch can be accessed via two routes. If a switch in the ring breaks or fails, the connection is immediately established via the second way. This results in a simple and fast redundancy solution. In the event of a power supply failure or a network connection failure to the end device, warning signals can be triggered via a relay output, for example.
