Make the switch to Belden


Belden has extended its familiar Octopus range in the Hirschmann product series to include a new unmanaged Fast Ethernet switch.

The robust unmanaged 10-port switch supports automation protocols such as Profinet, EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP. It possesses ten twisted-pair ports (10/100 Base-TX) with vibration-proof M12 connections with D-coding.

This switch is particularly suitable for use in small-scale networks in transport, manufacturing and process automation where management functions are not required. It boasts a MTBF rating of 30 years and can be quickly and easily taken into use on the plug-and-play principle.

The switch can be mounted on the wall or on the machine itself, where its 184x189x70mm housing (wxhxd) occupies very little space.

Belden can now offer ten competitively priced Fast Ethernet ports enabling the Octopus 10TX to facilitate economical solutions, particularly in small decentralised networks with large numbers of terminals.
