Serial over Ethernet Industrial Switch for Harsh Environment
With IP40 Durable Aluminum housing and fanless design also provide efficient heat dissipation. The Industrial Network Switch provides a high level of immunity against electromagnetic interference and heavy electrical surges, usually found on plant floors or curb-side traffic control cabinets. It also possesses an integrated power supply source with a wide range of voltages (9 to 56V DC) for worldwide high availability applications requiring dual or backup power inputs. Indeed, The design of the switch ensures operates in Harsh Environment.
Converting Between Serial and Ethernet Connectivity
Fiberroad Serial over Ethernet Industrial Switch provides an all-in-one solution. It converts RS232/422/485 connections to Ethernet connections, allowing seamless communication between traditional serial-based devices such as PLC, meters, sensors, and barcode readers to an IP-based Ethernet device. More importantly, the industrial switch is fully compliant with Modbus/TCP and offers a convenient solution for connecting existing devices or controllers running the Modbus serial protocol(Modbus/ACSCII or Modbus/RTU) to an Ethernet network.
Build Up Secure Network with L2+ Industrial Switch
FR-7M3408S provides robust Layer 2+ Gigabit networks connectivity, including but not limited to Static route, LAN network security, ACL/QoS policy… Moreover, By configuring ITU-T G.8032 ERPS (Ethernet Ring Protection Switching) technology, Spanning Tree Protocol (802.1s MSTP), and redundant power system in industrial automation networks to enhance system reliability and uptime in harsh environments. As can be seen, the Managed Industrial Switch is easy to manage and maintain.
Manage the Industrial Network Anytime, Anywhere
Managed Industrial Ethernet Switch allows various network management methods, such as the WebGUI, CLI and NMS. The notion of easy to use, particularly with no additional hardware investment and installation. Industrial Network Switch can deploy centralised management, Layer 2 to Layer 4 QoS, Bandwidth allocation, real-time monitoring, etc.
