Industrial switches for high-availability networks

For SPS IPC Drives 2017

(PresseBox) (Stuttgart, ) Switches serve as pilots of data traffic in Ethernet networks. At SPS IPC Drives 2017 in Nuremberg, Lapp is presenting its own models for the first time under the name ETHERLINE® ACCESS. Their performance characteristics are impressive, even to demanding users in industry. Accordingly, the critical reconfiguration time needed for communication to be re-established after an interruption is only 20 milliseconds with 250 active components in the network. Besides this, the switches are fully equipped with cutting-edge diagnostic and redundancy features.

Lapp has decided to offer its own switches because only the combination of an industrial-grade switch and industrial branded cables such as the Lapp ETHERLINE® models can guarantee the very highest performance in terms of transmission quality and reliability. The customer does not need to purchase individual components from different suppliers. Instead, they can procure a complete communication solution from a single source for the highest demands in industrial applications.

Lapp supplies the switches in four variants: “managed”, i.e. with the option of configuration and five or eight RJ45 ports, designated ETHERLINE® ACCESS M05T or M08T respectively. By contrast, the ETHERLINE® ACCESS U05T and U08T switches are “unmanaged”. All four are fan- and maintenance-free and have two redundant connections to ensure a reliable power supply.

Visit Lapp at Stand 310 in Hall 2 of SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg between 28 and 30 November
