The FL SWITCH SFN… range of Factory Line switches with standard functions in numerous versions can be used for quick and cost-effective Ethernet network expansion to the field level. Due to their narrow housing design, the components are suitable for universal remote use in control cabinets and junction boxes. The switches have five or eight ports, up to two of which are glass fiber ports provided in SC or ST format. The switches support the auto negotiation function at the twisted pair ports and offer transmission speeds of 10/100/1000 Mbps depending on the switch version. Mixed operation for the connection of segments with different data transmission speeds is also supported. The glass fiber ports only support 100 Mbps or 1000 Mbps (Gigabit version). The RJ45 ports offer an auto crossing function, which means it is not necessary to make a distinction between 1:1 and crossover cables. The fiber optic ports can be used to extend the segment length up to 20 km. Unused RJ45 ports can be fitted with security caps to provide mechanical protection against unauthorized use.

– Increased network performance
– Switched Ethernet reduces traffic and non predictable timing
– Quality of Service: Pretagged high priority messages are forwarded before lower priority messages during periods of high network traffic loading
– Gigabit options for data intensive applications
– Gigabit switches support jumbo frames up to 9600 bytes per frame
– Easy network expansion
– No configuration of the switch
– Auto negotiation and autocross simplify cabling
– Coupling copper network segments with different bit rates with automatic detection of the data transmission speed of 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps or 1000 Mbps depending on the switch version
– Fiber optic options extend distance and electrical noise immunity
– 1- or 2-port options
– SC or ST connector options
– Multimode or singlemode option
– Low cost, low complexity security (optional)
– Connect Layer 1 security elements at the RJ45 port to restrict access or tampering
– No software setup needed.
