The Gigabit Modular Switch is a high-performance managed switch, which covers the port requirements of industrial applications in a modular and flexible way. It also supports all popular Gigabit and Fast Ethernet transmission standards, IT standard protocols, and the PROFINET and EtherNet/IP™ automation protocols.
For use in the production backbone, the FL SWITCH GHS 12G/8 is the first switch, which has integrated 12 Gigabit ports and also supports the accommodation of interface modules for up to 16 additional 100 Mbps ports. With the integrated Layer 3 license, the switch can be configured as a router. The GHS switch can provide routing in up to 28 different subnetworks. With VRRP (Virtual Redundancy Routing Protocol) it can also be operated as a redundant router.
