Ethernet Switches connects Ethernet devices on a network by using packet switching to receive, process and forward data to a destination device. Using a switch targets data to a specific device rather than broadcasting out of all ports. A “managed” switch allows you to configure what data gets priority on your mission-critical LAN. These switches also give you the capacity to monitor LAN traffic, build in redundancy and control who has access to make changes.
Ethernet Switches are critical in today’s world of automation technologies. They provide network systems the ability to connect and communicate to Ethernet networks. Switches range from Managed to Unmanaged, 4-Ports to 32-Ports, Panel Mount, DIN Rail Mount and Rackmount options. PLC Technologies industrial Ethernet solutions provide an abundance of product options including managed and unmanaged switches, Gigabit Ethernet switches, PoE switches, protocol switches, EN50155 and IEC61850-3-certified switches, and SFP modules with rackmount and DIN-rail mounting options.
Our switches are built for high security and durability and are suitable for use in mission-critical environments. Additionally, with multiple industrial certifications, our industrial Ethernet solutions not only provide the highest network reliability for Ethernet hubs and network switches to meet current industrial communication standards, but are also energy-efficient, durable, and robust.
PLC Technologies has over 1250 models of Managed and Unmanaged Industrial Switches with a vast array of options including 10/100/1000 Ethernet, Industrial Protocol Management support (PROFINET and Modbus TCP), PoE and fiber.
