MAKE THE LOGICAL SWITCH

Control Logic has expanded its range of Hirschmann managed switches with two new additions from the Gecko range – the cost-effective and compact Gecko 8TX and Gecko 8TX/2SAFP.

The Gecko range is now available with four to eight fast ethernet ports and the option for two Gigabit SFP slots to save space and cost while increasing your bandwidth performance.

Gecko are among the smallest managed industrial ethernet switches on the market, providing reliable data communication, security, diagnostic and redundancy functions at an outstanding pace.

New features expand functionality by adding VLAN support, which was previously unavailable, as well as the MRP protocol to compliment existing RSTP support and IGMP Snooping for multicast control.
Management and monitoring of the device have also been enhanced, with the addition of an SNTP client for time synchronisation to ensure that the log files and information generated are accurate and useful.

Ethernet/IP and Profinet industrial profiles can be used to easily integrate the device into your SCADA application.

These additions make the Gecko range a fully functional light managed switch, with a low-cost entry point. Its eco-friendly power consumption makes it perfect for applications that call for a cost-effective solution that offers more than an unmanaged switch but without a lot of unnecessary features that won’t be used.
