Series 7000 managed switches from Phoenix Contact


New managed switches for high availability EtherNet/IP networks

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. − Phoenix Contact now offers Series 7000 advanced managed switches. The switches support the Device Level Ring (DLR) redundancy mechanism. With recovery times of less than three milliseconds, a switch-over can be performed quickly in the event that a failure occurs. This function increases the availability of the network. Up to six non-DLR-capable devices can be integrated into the ring with the 7000 switch.

In addition, the Series 7000 switches are particularly suitable for use in EtherNet/IP networks because they support the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP). Because of this feature, the switches can be directly integrated into the EtherNet/IP control system for seamless configuration and diagnostics.
