Networking of automation components in a simple and effective way

Switches are the basic coupling elements in Ethernet networks. They connect the Ethernet participants together and enable communication.

Unmanaged switches are the simplest active network component. They do not need to be configured and are therefore very flexible. They use the basic standard protocols like auto-negotiation, auto-crossing, and flow-control and can automatically adjust to the different transmission speeds or connector wiring.

Weidmüller's managed switches offer extensive control mechanisms for data distribution and bandwidth management to coordinate and cope with the different requirements of communication participants in an industrial network. Configuration is web-based using a simple and intuitive user interface.

Industrial Ethernet cable configurator

Industrial Ethernet cable configurator

The industrial-Ethernet cable configurator allows you to custom-create assembled copper and fibre-optic IE cables according to your requirements and specifications. The cable configurator can also automatically create technical data sheets for all of your customised cable variants.

Power over Ethernet (PoE) Switch

Reduce wiring effort and operate Ethernet devices in hard-to-reach locations—without a separate supply cable. Ideal for uninterruptible power supply.

Power over Ethernet (PoE) Switch
  • Up to 30 W with PoE+
  • Integrated DC/DC converter for supplying 48 V PoE devices over the entire input voltage range from 12 to 57 VDC
  • Intelligent power consumption detection and classification
  • Variants with copper and fibre-optic interface for multi-mode and single-mode applications
