MODULAR managed switches, from Phoenix Contact make industrial Ethernet set-up easy while providing maximum options.
This new addition to the Factory Line family requires no complex IT programming. The expandable switch is ready for use when the needed modules are plugged in and the browser-based interface is configured. With a head station and two side-by-side expansion modules, the modular managed switch (MMS) allows for expansion from two to 24 ports.
Front or bottom cable access options provide distributed Ethernet capabilities in small junction boxes or panels.
Simple point-and-click diagnostics and intuitive LED indicators enable plant floor staff to easily install or perform ongoing device and network checks. Wire speed switched Ethernet features meet high performance application needs.
Like other Factory Line family products, the MMS was designed for rugged industrial use. Depending on the environment, the user can choose twisted pair, glass fibre, polymer or HCS cables for a flexible connection.
The MMS has been designed with vibration-proof push-pull locking in accordance with the RJ-45 standard.
Additional functions including web-based management and simple network management protocol make configuration, set up and diagnostics easy.
