Daanet provide Hirschmann Auto-Configuration Adapter (ACA), where speed extends to the configuration of a replacement switch in the event of a failure. The ACA is plugged into a managed Hirschmann switch and loaded with the configuration file through a simple graphical menu command.
Featuring a screw tab to provide secure mounting to the cabinet gear tray, the ACA is left permanently in place until required. When the switch needs to be replaced, the ACA is plugged into the new switch, and upon power-up, the configuration is automatically retrieved from the ACA and stored permanently in the switch’s flash memory.
The Auto-Configuration Adapter provides an economical means of ensuring the correct configuration file is readily accessible and restored quickly. Models are available for USB (Model ACA21-USB), RJ11 (ACA11) and IP67 M12 (ACA21-M12) connectors to suit the entire range of Hirschmann Industrial Ethernet switches.
