For machine and automation networks
Grant is excited to carry the new 2000 series managed switches provide a two-pronged approach to the continued demand for robust, high-function, economically priced managed Ethernet switches from Phoenix Contact. The new FL SWITCH 2000 line bridges the gap between simple unmanaged switches and complex managed switches. Within the product range, the 2000 and 2100 versions provide a portfolio with an optimized range of functions for the series production of machines.
Representing the next generation of the FL SWITCH LM product range, the 2200 and 2300 versions serve applications that require a broader scope of functions, as well as industry-specific approvals. The 2200 and 2300 series managed switches provide a new product range for automation applications, thereby ensuring the continued success of the “Lean Managed Switch” concept well into the future. With these new 2000 series switches, you will choose the ideal port combination for their application from a wide range of variants.
New versions for Gigabit communication and a wider choice of fiber interfaces due to the use of SFP ports dramatically increase network flexibility and the range of possible applications, as compared to the Lean Managed Switch. In addition, ongoing technological developments have significantly improved the comparable price/performance ratio. You will find all the familiar advantages of the Lean Managed Switch in the new FL SWITCH 2200/2300. You will also be able to design, configure, and diagnose a wider range of automation networks safely and robustly in diverse industries and ambient conditions thanks to the coordinated scope of functions and comprehensive approvals.
The 2000/2100 series intelligent switches are targeted products for the series production of machines. They make a simple yet intelligent network for growing communication requirements in machines a reality. Simple unmanaged networks often no longer fulfill these requirements and are reaching their limitations. As an alternative to unmanaged switches, the cost-effective FL SWITCH 2000/2100 allows configuration and monitoring of the machine network in ways previously reserved for the more expensive managed switches.
The 2200/2300 series switches are a contemporary update of the Lean Managed Switch and are oriented toward the automation networks in a wide range of applications, including marine, process technology, infrastructure, wind energy, machine building, and systems manufacturing.
