Weidmuller ’s WaveLine plug and play switches are compact and unmanaged switches for Industrial Ethernet.
With its WaveLine range of industrial Ethernet switches, Weidmuller is providing modules with 3-5 and 6-8 Ethernet ports to meet requirements.
Supplied in robust black plastic housings (flammability class VO to UL 94), the unmanaged IP20-rated switches are simple to install through plug and play functionality and can be quickly and simply snapped onto TS 35 mounting rails.
IE switches are equipped with LEDs to indicate power on; data transmission rate and connection/activity respectively, as well as they provide precise and rapid control information.
With just 22.5 mm (3-5 port modules) and 45 mm (6-8 port modules), all WaveLine unmanaged switches are designed to be compact and they operate reliably in temperatures ranging from 0 °C to 60 °C.
Switches function as central network components. They prevent data collisions and make it possible for data packets to be switched rapidly and increase data throughput.
With transmission rates of up to 100 Mbit/s, Weidmuller’s switches fulfil the requirements for fast Ethernet and they are backwards compatible with older networks operating transmission rates of 10 Mbit/s (IEEE 802.3).
The unmanaged IE switches are equipped with comprehensive functionality (that is, auto-negotiation and auto-crossing).
In addition, WaveLine modules are equipped with extensive AC or DC power supply options.
