Industrial Ethernet Switches

Networking of automation components in a simple and effective way

Switches are the basic coupling elements in Ethernet networks. They connect the Ethernet participants together and enable communication. Unmanaged switches are the simplest active network component. They do not need to be configured and are therefore very flexible. They use the basic standard protocols like auto-negotiation, auto-crossing, and flow-control and can automatically adjust to the different transmission speeds or connector wiring.
Weidmüller’s managed switches offer extensive control mechanisms for data distribution and bandwidth management to coordinate and cope with the different requirements of communication participants in an industrial network. Configuration is web-based using a simple and intuitive user interface.
