Full Description for the GECKO 4TX:

The new GECKO 4TX industrial Ethernet switch guarantees reliable data communication and enhanced redundancy and diagnostic features. It also offers easy-to-implement management functionality at an outstanding price-performance ratio.

Featuring four Fast Ethernet ports (10/100 Mbit/s) and the ability to mount on a DIN rail, the compact dimensions (25 x 114 x 79 mm) of the GECKO 4TX require little space and in-active ports  can be disabled to protect against possible misuse.

The switch can be managed through Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) or via HiDiscovery and Industrial HiVision from Hirschmann™. A web interface for HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) deployment is also available. For monitoring purposes, the switch provides diagnostic and documentation options, such as a system log, Remote Monitoring (RMON) and Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP). Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) and Quality of Service (QoS) functions are also supported.

Additional features include an IP30 protection rating, a wide operating temperature range, high resistance to shocks and vibration, and a 24 V DC power supply. What’s more, with a power consumption of less than 3 W, the GECKO requires minimal electricity.

Features for the GECKO 4TX:

  • Outstanding price-performance ratio thanks to the Lite Management concept
  • SNMP and HiDiscovery/Industrial HiVision, plus a web interface, ensure fast and convenient administration
  • RSTP guarantees reliable data communication
  • Longer machine uptime due to simple installation and commissioning
  • A range of diagnostic functions ensures fast identification of errors, resulting in smooth production processes
  • Reduced operating costs due to low power consumption
  • Space-saving installation from a compact design
  • A wide range of application scenarios due to robust characteristics (i.e., resistance to shocks and vibration, operating temperature range from 0°C to +60°C and IP30 protection rating)
  • 24 V DC power supply
  • Ideally combined with Ethernet cable from Belden®
