Industrial Ethernet Switches
from world renown manufacturers
Industrial Ethernet Switches are designed to connect devices in network environments that are subject to extreme operating temperatures of -40 °C to 75 °C, vibrations, and shocks. By meeting regulatory compliance and standards requirements, they enable you application and support of Ethernet in a wide range of network architectures.
Connect devices with top-quality industrial Ethernet switches
The Industrial Ethernet Switches from our extensive portfolio feature industrial-grade reliability, assured enterprise interoperability, network redundancy, comprehensive security, and easy management. They have multiple mounting options for faster and easier installations.
All these properties make them universally applicable in highly secure enterprise, IoT, and M2M solutions. With their help, you will maximize throughput, simplify installation, and reduce overall costs.
The high-quality switches are manufactured by world’s leading companies:
An Ethernet switch – the brain of the network
To ensure the connectivity of devices the local Ethernet networks use various networking hardware. The industrial ethernet switch is the most important among them because it acts as a brain of the network, and it helps to connect the devices on a particular Local Area Network (LAN) effectively. The switch receives a message from a target source and forwards it to the intended device, thereby ensuring an effective data transmission between devices on a LAN.
Due to their growing importance, ethernet switches are designed in a wide range of configurations. Although they can be differentiated based on their ports, materials or other specifics, they mainly belong to two categories – the managed and unmanaged ethernet switches.
Choose from different industrial Ethernet switches
An Unmanaged Ethernet Switch is a device capable of transmitting data packets from one port to the other. It learns the MAC addresses that help a switch to remember, which port a device is plugged into. Meanwhile, a Managed Ethernet Switch knows the IP of the connected devices, providing you advanced network management options. A Lite, Semi-managed or Configurable Ethernet Switch is an unmanaged switch that supports main protocols of managed switch, e.g., STP, RSTP, VLAN, which makes it attractive and affordable for non-demanding applications.
While the Managed Ethernet Switch provides flexibility to you to control, manage, and prioritize the LAN traffic, an Unmanaged Ethernet Switch works like a plug and play (PnP) switch. The latter allows devices on the LAN to communicate with each other, without your intervention.
Other key differences between both switches cover:
