Increase the realtime capability of your PROFINET applications with the corresponding Industrial Ethernet switches from Phoenix Contact. Thanks to integrated ERTEC technology, the PROFINET IRT switches offer optimum realtime properties for use in PROFINET networks.

Your advantages

  • Identification and prioritized, rapid forwarding of PROFINET data packets thanks to ERTEC technology
  • Continual quality surveillance of the interference-free and diagnosable fiber optic paths
  • Ideal for flexible use in the field thanks to its IP67 protection class and push-pull connection technology (AIDA) (FL SWITCH IRT IP TX/3POF)

Managed Switches for use in the PROFINET environment

Thanks to the integrated PROFINET IO device, PROFINET IRT switches are ideal for use in PROFINET conformance class B and C networks. The switches can be fully configured and diagnosed via STEP 7 and PC Worx.

The Media Redundancy Protocol (MRP) ensures a guaranteed switch-over time of 200 ms in the event of an error.

In addition, the Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) allows you to automatically define your network topology.

Diagnostics for fiber optic paths

Diagnostics and length measurement for fiber optic paths

With the FL SWITCH IRT, PROFINET fiber optic paths can be diagnosed and the diagnostic data made available to the controller.

You can therefore continuously monitor the quality of your fiber optic paths. For improved assessment of the fiber optic path, the IRT switches also make the distances between two devices in the PROFINET device available.

What this means for you:

  • Proactive maintenance for increased availability and less downtime
  • Improved assessment of the path quality through simultaneous length measurement
