The switches can be connected to form sub-networks, which in turn can be linked up to each other. Thanks to their fanless design, ability to withstand temperatures up to +70?C and their Fast HIPER Ring redundancy mechanism, these switches guarantee the highest degree of availability for production facilities. They also support Profinet and EtherNet/IP.
Using wire-speed technology makes for extremely fast functions, which include not only static and dynamic routing, but also multicast routing (DVMRP, IGMPv1/v2/v3, PIM-DM) and router redundancy (VRRP, OSPFv2, RIPv1/v2).
MACH1040 switches meet a wide variety of standards and have a range of approvals including IEC 61850. They offer both high vibration resistance and extensive resilience to magnetic fields and electrostatic discharges.
Two freely combinable power modules (24/48 VDC, 110/230 VAC and DC) are available to ensure redundant power supply. The 16-Gigabit Ethernet combo ports (10/100/1000 BASE-TX), which can be optionally equipped with SFP fibre optic transceivers (100/1000 BASE-FX/SX/LX/LH), allow flexible configuration of fast networks with different topologies, which can be altered or expanded at a later stage without incurring additional costs. In addition, all ports support Version 2 of the Precision Time Protocol (IEEE 1588 V2) with a precision of 30ns and, as an optional extra, Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af).
Equipped with the latest in energy-saving chip technology and able to boot up in just ten seconds, MACH1040 switches are designed to be mounted in 19-inch switch cabinets. The robust metal housing measures 448mm (w) x 44mm (h) x 310mm (d) with the Gigabit Ethernet ports located either at the front or the rear. A USB interface, via which the auto-configuration adapter ACA 21-USB can be connected, is available for storing and, if necessary, retrieving all configuration data as well as the operating system.
The status of every switch can be monitored locally using indicator contacts, while detailed information can be displayed via a standard web browser. Additional management functions available include command line interface, Management Information Base, Telnet, HTTP, TFTP and SFP Management.
