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.
Web-Based Management without Extensive IT Knowledge
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).
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 easy-to-use and compact design, these DIN-rail mount switches also feature an extended temperature range from −40 °C to +60 °C. Furthermore, a redundant power supply ensures even more uptime. All housings are equipped with a 2D barcode containing a Link to an operating manual and the datasheet. This Link also provides one-click access to support services.
Network segmentation per IEEE802.1Q, authentication of network participants per IEEE802.1X, firewall functions using access-control list/service control, port security
Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) for meshed and ring networks, ETHERNET Ring Protection Switching (ERPS) for up to two rings per switch, loop detection and storm control on each port
Port mirroring, Modbus® registers, SNMP v3, SNMP trap events, alarm threshold, port statistics, backup and restore, system log, syslog server, command line interface with SSH/Telnet
