Our Industrial Ethernet product range

Unmanaged Switches

Our unmanaged switches are configuration-free and customisable. They use basic protocols for automatic adaptation to variable transmission speeds and connector assignments. Support for twisted pair cabling (RJ45 or fibre optic in accordance with IEEE 802.3), various versions in EcoLine, BasicLine, ValueLine and Power-over-Ethernet variants reduce cabling costs.

  • Fast Ethernet and Gigabit versions available, including Power over Ethernet variants
  • Rapid fault diagnosis thanks to the clearly visible LED display
  • Wide variety of ports in terms of number and features to meet individual requirements
  • Robust housing for reliable long-term use in different environments
  • Numerous international approvals for use in many different industries

Managed Switches

Our managed switches fulfil industrial network requirements in four lines: ValueLine, AdvancedLine, PremiumLine and SubstationLine. With DIN rail and 19" rack models, various interfaces (Fast, Gigabit, up to 10 Gigabit), port options, Power-over-Ethernet variants and support for important automation protocols, they offer flexibility. International approvals make them ideal for various industries.

  • Extensive set of management features enable the set-up of various redundancy, monitoring, traffic filter and security functions
  • Huge variety of port count and media type enable a wide range of applications
  • Support of industrial protocols such as PROFINET-RT, EtherNet/IP and Modbus/TCP for optimal integration into the most common automation networks

Security routers

Our routers with integrated VPN enable secure remote access to remote networks. They offer wired and mobile connection options as well as support for the u-link Remote Access Service, which facilitates set-up without specialised IT knowledge.
