- The right switch for every application: Unmanaged Switches, intelligent switches, Managed Switches, and layer 3 switches
- Support for various IT standards and automation protocols such as PROFINET and EtherNet/IP™
- Gigabit switches for large networks with high data throughput
- Power over Ethernet switches for the use of cameras and other PoE end devices
Unmanaged Switches from Phoenix Contact impress with their standard functions, variable number of ports, and various designs. In addition to switches for DIN rails, we also offer switches with a 19″ design and switches for field installation (IP67). The Fast Ethernet and Gigabit switches with a high level of immunity, robust housing, and wide temperature range are entirely suitable for continuous operation in industrial applications. Special versions for Power over Ethernet make it extremely easy to install your end devices. Select the right Unmanaged Switch for your application.
Our intelligent switches combine the simplicity of an Unmanaged Switch with the intelligence of a Managed Switch. If you use the Ethernet switch in unmanaged mode, it behaves like an Unmanaged Switch. In other words, it does not use an IP address and does not need to be configured. Nonetheless, it offers additional functions for ensuring network robustness such as redundancy mechanisms and filter functions. In managed mode, the various options for quick and easy switch configuration simplify startup and offer many diagnostic functions for your network.
Phoenix Contact offers a large range of various Managed Switches. They offer optimum real-time properties, prioritization of your data traffic, various options for network diagnostics, and redundancy mechanisms. The robust DIN rail switches are tailored to special requirements in industrial environments and the automation protocols used there, such as PROFINET and EtherNet/IP™. Gigabit switches support large data volumes. They are also available as PoE switches. Choose from 5 to 24 ports, copper or FO connections (SC, ST/BFOC, SFP), and various approvals.
Layer 3 switches
Industrial layer 3 switches from Phoenix Contact enable you to easily segment your network into several subnets. Use our switches to easily integrate your machines, systems, and subnets into the higher-level network, thereby increasing your network stability and security. Thanks to switches with NAT functionality, you can also easily integrate systems with identical IP address ranges into higher-level networks.
