Unmanaged Switches

Unmanaged Switches for DIN rails  

Phoenix Contact offers a large selection of Unmanaged Switches

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.

Intelligent switches

2000 series intelligent switches as 8-port switches and 16-port switches  

Intelligent switches are easy to use and stabilize your network

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.

Managed Switches

Two Managed Switches from Phoenix Contact  

Managed Switches with a variety of possible functions and various designs

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

The modular layer 3 switch from Phoenix Contact  

The modular layer 3 switch is ideal for integration into the higher-level company network

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.
