Industrial routers and Layer 3 switches from Phoenix Contact can be used to integrate machines, production systems or entire subnetworks into the higher-level company network. The Managed Switches with a modular design from Phoenix Contact form the backbone of your automation application. The switch with NAT routing function combines the properties of a Managed Switch with those of a 1:1 NAT router – in a single DIN rail device.
Benefit from the advantages of various media – using a single device. Thanks to their modular design, Gigabit Modular Switches meet the demands of industrial applications with regard to ports.
In addition, they support numerous protocols and standards:
VRRP (Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol) is the keyword when it comes to managing multiple routers redundantly.
By inserting an SD Flash card with a Layer 3 license, you can integrate these functions into the modular Gigabit switch from Phoenix Contact.
This means that you can implement port-specific routing up to 28 times or operate multiple routers redundantly.
If identical machines are operated in parallel in a network, each machine must be configured individually. This is the only way that they can be integrated into the higher-level communication network.
Do you want to save configuration time?
With 1:1 NAT (Network Address Translation) you can operate entire production cells with the same IP address area – without having to configure the machines individually.
