Maximum diagnostics in the minimum amount of space.
Industrial Ethernet Switches from Phoenix Contact can be used to connect your networks reliably and redundantly. Thanks to the wide range of connection technologies, you can perfectly integrate Lean Managed Switches into existing fiber optic infrastructures.
Make the most of the options offered by your Industrial Ethernet solution.
RSTP (Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol) is a standardized mechanism which enables the mixed operation of components from various manufacturers.
Lean Managed Switches can implement meshed networks using RSTP by dispersing them into a tree structure. You can also create simple ring structures.
Lean Managed Switches offer a high level of flexibility thanks to:
You can even link large networks reliably and still ensure fast switch-over times: Large Tree Support increases the number of switches that can be operated under the root from 7 to 28. Since both Lean and Smart Managed Switches support this extension, you can construct mixed networks with both product ranges.
Stay fast: thanks to fast ring detection (an extension of RSTP), the switch even switches over a large network within 100 - 500 ms in the event of an error.
Lean Managed Switches with Large Tree Support offer:
Minimize the data load of your network and increase the availability of your system. Using the filter and querier functions of the Lean and Smart Managed Switches, send data only to the devices that require it.
Lean Managed Switches offer optimal support for EtherNet/IP™ networks:
