WEIDMULLER offers a range of managed switches for Industrial Ethernet with 8, 16 and 24 ports. They are robust, slim design, protocol transparent.
The IE-SWxx-M series of switches includes nine variants: three switches with 8, 16 and 24 ports (8/16/24 x RJ45).
For extremely long transmission paths and/or environments that experience electromagnetic disturbances there are two ports for fibre optics (2 x SC and 2 x ST). Up to 24 segments can be connected, with a housing width of just 45 mm.
All of Weidmuller's managed switches are protocol transparent. Each port creates its own network segment as well as its own collision domain. These ports can also be interconnected for increased versatility.
Integrating numerous features, the IE-SWxx-M managed switches are robust and reliable. For example, the IE-SWxx-M switches are encased in a sturdy aluminium housing and can be snapped onto TS35 mounting rails or optionally mounted on the wall to suit requirements.
All managed switches are also equipped with a redundant power supply (input voltage 8-24Vac/10-36Vdc redundant).
The Ethernet RJ45 port is designed for 10 BaseT, 100 BaseTX systems with maximum segment lengths of 100m (copper).
Segment lengths up to 2km are possible with fibre-optic multimode cable and 20km with single-mode cable (single-mode version up to 120km on request).
The IE switches are equipped with the following LED operation indicators: data transmission rate, Ethernet active, power active and temperature monitor.
In addition there is a programmable fault indication relay that signals failures or the presence of a link at one or several ports. For user-friendly convenience, all LEDs are on the front of the housing.
