Optimum infrastructure for complex networks
The Ethernet-based network systems are increasingly gaining significance in industrial automation. Balluff offers diverse portfolio of Ethernet-based systems and network components for machine and system design– for example, Profinet and Ethernet/IP.
To enable you to easily link all Ethernet system components, Balluff offers a complete solution.
With our unmanaged switches, 5-port and 8-port Ethernet devices can be star-connected on a component. The unmanaged switches satisfy both protection classes IP67 and IP20 and support 10 and 100 Mbit/s transfer rates. The transfer speed is set automatically via the auto negotiation function.
Through their auto-crossing function, the blocks independently detect which cable type is used. Wiring errors are thus excluded.
