Common Challenges for Ethernet Switch Deployment
For applications that require only basic monitoring and control functions, it’s not economical for engineers to choose expensive managed switches, which often support too many unneeded functions.
Engineers work with different types of control cabinets, and each one has space or installation limitations.
IT-oriented user interfaces, which are often very complicated and come with a steep learning curve for IA engineers, make it harder to update configurations and handle basic troubleshooting tasks.
industrial protocols supported; one-click setup to prep your switch for management from SCADA/HMIs.
installation options, including DIN-rail and rack-mounting to fit into any type of industrial cabinet.
page configuration dashboard makes it extremely easy to configure and deploy your switch; and it supports six different languages.
In addition, it is monitorable and is easy to maintain throughout the entire product life cycle.
The most frequently used automation protocols—including EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, and Modbus/TCP—are embedded in the SDS-3008 switch to provide enhanced operational performance and flexibility by making it controllable and visible from automation HMIs. It also supports a range of useful management functions, including IEEE 802.1Q VLAN, port mirroring, SNMP, and warning by relay.
