Ethernet field switch for heavy duty applications

Ethernet field switch for heavy duty applications GarrettCom Europe has expanded its 6K series of managed Ethernet switches with the launch of the 6K8 - a compact, eight port, hardened field device. Ideally suited to harsh industrial, edge-of-network applications, the 6K8 can accommodate up to eight 10/100Mb copper and fibre ports, or four 100Mb plus a 1Gb uplink port, in a hardened metal package designed specifically for extreme temperatures and challenging environments. Developed to meet the needs of demanding industrial Ethernet applications, the 6K8 is ideal for building a switched field network infrastructure when used in applications connected to industrial nodes, PLCs, IEDs, upstream switches, or routers. It has been designed and tested for use in industrial applications and is compliant with NEBS Level 3 and ETSI, IEEE 1613, IEC61850, NEMA TS2 and TEES. The 6K8 is the newest member of the 6K range of managed industrial switches that includes 32-, 25- and 16-port configurable switches in DIN-rail and rack mount packages. The 6K8 complements the existing products by providing a field-hardened device for remote locations requiring a reduced port count.
