Hirschmann Industrial Ethernet has expanded its range to include a new 10 port switch in the IP67 rated OCTOPUS family of networking devices. This poert swith is now available from Daanet .
Now featuring Gigabit fibre uplink ports (1000 BASE-FX), the switches also provide 8 twisted pair (100 Base-TX) ports with 4-pin M12-D connectors.
This new OCTOPUS switch includes a comprehensive range of management functions, including fast-recovery (50ms) ‘HiPER-Ring’ ring redundancy, as well as RSTP for compatibility with existing networks. Filtering, Flow Control and Prioritisation on a per-port basis provide traffic shaping to optimise network performance. SSH provides login security to ensure password protection.
The switches of the OCTOPUS family, which are complemented by an unmanaged 5-port device, are designed for an operating temperature range of -40°C to +70°C. They are suited to OEMs, and for retro-fitting to machinery needing ethernet appliances such as IP Video, drives or on-machine displays.
