Ethernet Switch Five- and Eight-Port Standard Function with Narrow Housing SFNB FL SWITCH

The FL SWITCH SNFB range of Factory Line switches extend the SFN range of switches for basic, entry level applications. They are ideal for applications that requires only basic Ethernet switching functions such as small scale machines and monitoring applications. The FL SWITCH SFNB switches have 5 or 8 ports. While they provide low installed cost Ethernet connections, they are fully industrialized with rugged metal housings, a -10°C to +60°C temperature range and complete IEC 61000-4 electrical noise ratings.

The FL SWITCH SNFB Factory line switches can be used for quick and cost-effective Ethernet network expansion to the field level. Due to the narrow housing design, the switches are suitable for use in control cabinets and junction boxes. The switch supports the auto negotiation function and offers transmission speeds of 10/100 Mbps across RJ45 ports and 100 Mbps across fiber optic ports. Mixed operation for the connection of segments with different data transmission speeds is also supported.

The RJ45 ports offer an auto crossing function, which means it is not necessary to make a distinction between 1:1 and crossover cables.

Switches are available with either SC or ST multi-mode fiber optic ports. For longer distance, a single-mode fiber optic switch extends the segment to 20 km typical.

Features and Benefits

Increased network performance

  • Switched Ethernet networks reduce traffic and no predictable timing

Easy network expansion
