Harsh-environment Ethernet switches with added ports

July 24, 2023

FL Switch 1000 family of unmanaged Ethernet switches has added gigabit, fiber-optic variants with an extended temperature range, as well as a 16-port gigabit switch and the first 24-port, fast Ethernet switch in a newly developed 65-mm housing. This new 1000 series supports Automation Protocol Prioritization (APP), which automatically sends mission-critical data packets from EtherNet/IP, Profinet and other industrial protocols over the network at a higher priority than standard traffic. Their robust design has a high immunity to surge and ESD, and the switches can operate in a wide temperature range of -40 °C to 75 °C), which makes them suitable for demanding applications.
