Three product lines of managed Gigabit Ethernet switches, namely Basic Line, Value Line and Premium Line are available, from Weidmüller, to satisfy all communication requirements in industrial environments. Designed for high-end applications, the Premium Line family features sophisticated management and security functions. It can be supplied with Gigabit Ethernet or Fast Ethernet ports. One Fast Ethernet version comes with an additional Power over Ethernet port. An integrated ring redundancy technology ensures a maximum recovery time of 20 ms. Gigabit versions are designed for use in networks with large volumes of communication data, and optional SFP transceivers offer maximum flexibility. These features ensure the Gigabit Ethernet switches are predestined for communications-intensive applications in distributed sub-networks as well as for high traffic loads in backbone solutions. Managed Gigabit Ethernet switches are equipped with two integrated Gigabit Ethernet ports plus 16 Fast Ethernet ports for copper and fibre-optic solutions. They support all customary protocols of TCP/IP-based industrial networks (for example, Ethernet/IP, Modbus/TCP). An external back-up and configuration module supports simple exchange and retrieval of a switch configuration to maintain high levels of plant availability. Managed Gigabit Ethernet switches have the following approvals and certificates of conformity: CE, FCC, UL/cUL Class I Div. 2 / Atex, DNV / GL.
