The HARTING Technology Group has developed a new range of Ethernet switches that facilitates the use of high-performance plug & play gigabit network solutions in the smallest space for data-intensive applications.
Imaging processes for quality assurance and monitoring are becoming increasingly significant in all industrial sectors. Camera systems are offering an increasingly higher resolution while becoming smaller and smaller in size. With its unmanaged Ethernet switches eCon 2000GX-I-A, HARTING is now offering high-performance gigabit switches for the universal networking of such machine monitoring and diagnostics systems using ix Industrial. You can now make optimum use of even the smallest of installation spaces with these compact and ultra-flat devices.
The switches are classified as protection class IP30 and can be ordered in versions intended for attachment to a DIN rail or for direct wall mounting. The IEC-standardised HARTING ix Industrial Ethernet interface in the devices fully supports the aim of miniaturisation – and not just for image sensors. The interface is also extremely reliable and robust.
