Monitor and Configure Networks Intuitively

ETHERNET is a critical piece of communication infrastructure within industrial and building automation. However, the implementation, commissioning and maintenance of ETHERNET installations is rarely handled by IT specialists. In order to ensure reliable, robust installation, high availability and high security nonetheless, WAGO now offers lean managed switches. The new switches complement WAGO’s line of network infrastructure solutions with new functions – particularly for network diagnostics.


Transmission rates up to 1000 Mbit/s

Fast Data Transmission

The switches are available with 8 or 16 copper ports capable with transmission rates up to 1000 Mbit/s. Devices with two extra SFP slots (100/1000 Mbit/s) are available as an option for connecting fiber optic cables. A Power over Ethernet version supplies connected PoE devices with 24 VDC, which is typical for control cabinets. The output power of each PoE port can be up to 30 W.

Installation, Commissioning and Diagnostics

Web-Based Management without Extensive IT Knowledge

Clear Usability

WAGO has placed a great emphasis on creating an intuitive and easy-to-use interface. Web-Based Management allows installation, commissioning and diagnostics to be performed without extensive IT knowledge. Users enter the switch’s IP address in a standard browser and then directly access the diagnostic dashboard or network view (topology map).

The diagnostic pages of the lean managed switches allow quick system troubleshooting. The individual connection status is clearly indicated by green, yellow and red traffic lights. A detailed status overview of individual connections is displayed when the mouse hovers over a connection. In a new window, the user can then see the bandwidth, the load and any transmission errors.

Click to Register

By double-clicking on the switch, you can access the diagnostic dashboard. Simple teach-in of the individual network subscribers can be performed during commissioning. As soon as a physical connection is established at a port, clicking the “Teach-in” button registers subscribers. Identification is performed via LLDP or the MAC addresses of the connected devices. If a connector on the switch is disconnected, the port is shown in red on the diagnostic dashboard.

Quickly Detect Loose Connections

Another easy-to-use function within the diagnostic dashboard is the loose connection feature. A “port link down statistics” function records all the transmission errors for each port to allow you to quickly locate and fix any loose connections resulting from defective connectors, for example.

through Power Supply Redundancy

Robust and Reliable

Both the hardware and the operating concept of the new switches readily adapt to any automation and building technology requirements. In addition to their compact, easy-to-use design, these DIN-rail mount switches also feature an extended temperature range from −40 °C to +60 °C (−40 °F to 140 °F) or −10 °C to +60 °C (14 °F to 140 °F). A redundant power supply ensures even more uptime. Each housing is equipped with a 2D barcode containing a Link to the operating manual and datasheet. This Link also provides one-click access to support services.
