Belden: Full Gigabit OCTOPUS IP67 Ethernet Switches


April 27, 2021

Full Gigabit OCTOPUS IP67 Ethernet Switches

Hirschmann’s Full Gigabit OCTOPUS IP67 Ethernet switches offer a powerful, yet economical, solution for industrial engineers seeking to optimize network performance in harsh, condensed operating spaces.

The unique L-shaped housing takes up less space for cabling both onboard and along rail system tracks and the PoE port options save costs by eliminating the need for separate cabling to power end devices, such as IP cameras. The compact design and cabinet-less mounting make installation and maintenance simple and cost-effective.

Highly configurable, the Full Gigabit OCTOPUS switches are available in a variety of feature sets including three housing sizes with 8, 16 or 24 ports to allow expansion tailored to meet individual network demands. Combined with advanced redundancy mechanisms and IP67 protection against water and dust, industrial engineers can now ensure high-speed connections in harsh conditions with increased reliability, no matter the industrial environment.


Built in compliance with international train standards, the Full Gigabit OCTOPUS switches from Hirschmann are ideal solutions for industrial engineers needing a high-end switch for use onboard trains and alongside tracks. The switches are also well-suited for applications requiring superior data transfer rates, such as high-definition IP cameras in production and embedded quality control, as well as situations where devices need to withstand extreme temperatures and exposure to vibration and dust.


Hirschmann’s Full Gigabit OCTOPUS switches are designed for a variety of industrial markets, including transportation settings—specifically mass transit systems, traffic control systems, rail-rolling stock and railway and train stations, as well as general manufacturing, automotive and machine building industries.
