Managed Switches for universal automation applications

The 2000 series switches with various connection technologies are suitable for universal use  

With a large variety of versions, the Managed Switches of the 2000 series are highly versatile

Many automation networks require Ethernet Switches that have a standard scope of functions and offer maximum affordability and versatility. The Managed Switches of the 2000 series from Phoenix Contact meet precisely these requirements.

  • The versions with the designation 2000 and 2100 offer clearly arranged configuration and monitoring options where Unmanaged Switches were primarily used in the past.
  • The 2100 versions feature Gigabit on all ports.
  • Along with an extended range of functions, the 2200 versions as Fast Ethernet and the 2300 versions as Gigabit Switches also feature communication via fiberglass. With approvals for maritime applications and the process industry, they are flexible in use.
  • With the 2000F, 2400 (Fast Ethernet) and 2500 (Gigabit) versions, switches with a narrow design are also available, for example for use in narrow control cabinets.
  • Thanks to their robust housing and IP65/IP66/IP67 degree of protection, the 2600 (Fast Ethernet) and 2700 (Gigabit) versions are ideally suited for decentral field installations that are not protected in control cabinets.

Managed Switches with IT functions in industrial applications

3000 and 4000 series Industrial Switches  

The 3000 and 4000 series Managed Switches are ideal for use in infrastructure applications

For demanding applications, the Managed Switches of the 3000 and 4000 series combine comprehensive diagnostic, performance, and safety functions. They also offer redundancy switch-over times of just 15 ms and user-friendly application features. The Industrial Ethernet Switches support a range of IEEE standards, making them ideal for use in complex networks. The Managed Switches of the 3000 series offer a comprehensive portfolio with 10/100 Mbps connections. The 4000 series also features two Gigabit ports for connection to a higher-level network.

Real-time-capable Managed Switches for Time Sensitive Networking

Managed TSN Switch for time synchronization  

Managed TSN Switches for time synchronization

The FL SWITCH TSN 2300 devices are the first Managed Switches from Phoenix Contact for Time Sensitive Networking (TSN). In addition to using them in classic applications, the innovative TSN technology also allows you to realize real-time-capable Ethernet networks. The TSN mechanisms increase the performance, robustness, and availability of current networks.

Managed Switches optimized for PROFINET

2200 series and IRT Industrial Switches for PROFINET  

2200 series PROFINET switches for Class B networks and IRT switches for Class C networks

If you would like to utilize all the advantages of a PROFINET network, you need Managed Switches that are specially optimized for PROFINET.

With their integrated PROFINET devices, the 2200 through to 2700 and GHS series of PROFINET switches are ideal for use in PROFINET Class B networks. With MRP, they support a fast switch-over time that is within 200 ms. Furthermore, LLDP allows your network topology to be determined automatically.

IRT Managed Ethernet Switches provide the ideal scope of functions for PROFINET Class C networks. With the integrated ERTEC technology, they offer optimum real-time properties and support proactive network maintenance.

Managed Switches optimized for EtherNet/IP™

7000-series DIN rail switches for use in EtherNet/IP™ networks  

The EtherNet/IP™ Switches from the 7000 series support the DLR redundancy mechanism

The Managed Switches of the 7000 series are particularly suitable for use in EtherNet/IP™ networks. DIN rail switches allow a particularly high level of network availability, since they support the EtherNet/IP™-specific DLR redundancy mechanism with a switch-over time of less than 3 ms. Furthermore, network data loads are reduced thanks to the intelligent filtering of network telegrams using multicast and IGMP snooping.

Incorporate Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Switches directly into the engineering with CIP, and configure and diagnose your network directly in the control system.

Managed Power over Ethernet Switches

Managed Power over Ethernet Switches  

The Managed PoE Switches from the 4000 series reliably supply your end devices with data and power

The Power over Ethernet versions of the 4000 series Managed Switches supply your PoE-capable end devices (powered devices, PD) with data and power through a single cable. Alongside the standard functions of the 4000 series, they feature additional PoE-specific configuration options such as PoE scheduling and PoE watchdog. Thanks to the high power budget of 60 watts per port, the industrial PoE Switches are suitable for the use of PoE-operated high-power devices including PoE++ cameras.

Managed Switches for applications in the field

FL SWITCH 2608 Managed Switch for applications in the field  

Managed Switches with IP67 degree of protection for decentralized mounting

The Managed Switch versions 2600 (Fast Ethernet) and 2700 (Gigabit) are the ideal choice for applications in which the switches are to be mounted in decentralized installation on the field level where they are not protected by a control cabinet. With IP65/IP66/IP67 degrees of protection, the devices are particularly resistant to environmental influences. The innovative M12 connection technology with push-pull fast locking system also ensures that they are easy to mount while providing a high level of robustness against mechanical strain.

The variety of diagnostic, filter, and management functions already very popular in the FL SWITCH 2000 product family are also available in the IP67 devices as well as in special PROFINET versions.

Managed Switches for IEC 61850/IEEE 1613

Managed Switches in accordance with IEC 61850 for DIN rail and rack mounting  

The 3000E and 4800E Managed Switches meet the requirements of IEC 61850 and IEEE 1613

The 3000E (DIN rail switches) and the 4800E (for 19″ cabinets) Managed Switches are particularly suitable for use in energy systems, and meet the stringent requirements of standards IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613. They provide round-the-clock reliable operation under extreme environmental conditions thanks to their very high immunity to electromagnetic and electrostatic interference, extended temperature range, and extreme shock and vibration resistance.

Managed Switches with router functions

Layer 3 switch and NAT switch with router function  

Managed Switches with router function allow you to segment your network

For higher network stability and network security, it is advisable to divide the network into several subnets. The modular GHS layer 3 switches allow several subnets to be connected to the production network or the higher-level company network.

Thanks to Network Address Translation, the NAT switches allow easy connection to the higher-level network for machines or systems with the same IP address range.
