Managed IP67/54 switches in accordance with IEEE 802.3, store-and-forward-switching, software layer 2 Professional, Ethernet (10 Mbit/s) and Fast-Ethernet (100 Mbit/s) with up to 24 Fast Ethernet ports, fiber-optic uplink ports optional and POE capabilities
Robust compact housing - Specially designed for use at the field level with automation networks, the managed switches and routers in the OCTOPUS family ensure the highest industrial protection ratings (IP67/IP65) regarding mechanical stress, humidity, dirt, dust, shock and vibrations. They are also capable of withstanding heat and cold, while fulfilling the strictest fire prevention requirements.
Extended Feature Range - The managed OCTOPUS family includes switches from 8 to 28 ports. Gigabit versions are also available that, just like the Fast Ethernet models, feature vibration-resistant M12 connectors for twisted pair cables or fiber-optic ports according to IEC 63076-3-106 v1/v4. Full-featured Industrial HiVision Management Software is available.
Configurable - Over 100 water- and dust-resistant versions offer an optimum solution and maximum flexibility for a variety of application scenarios.
Protocol Support - Models now available that support Profinet, Ethernet/IP and Modbus TCP
Power over Ethernet - Versions with PoE/PoE+ support allow these devices to be powered via a data cable, meaning no special PoE-power-supplies and no additional power cables are needed.
Supported Software - The software comes in Basic, Advanced and Professional versions and provides management, diagnostic and filtering features as well as seamless redundancy methods and security mechanisms of varying degrees.
Approved for Transportation Use - The managed OCTOPUS switches and routers meet application-specific regulations for use in railway vehicles, along railway lines, for fire protection in trains and in road vehicles.
