Product families

  • Unmanaged switches

    Easily and efficiently connect Ethernet devices

    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.


    • IP67 and IP20
    • Transfer rates 10 and 100 Mbit/s
    • Transfer speed automatically adjustable via Auto-Negotiation function
    • Wiring errors excluded by Auto-crossing function
