TURCK announces unmanaged Ethernet Switches
April 4, 2010 — TURCK's line of rugged, harsh duty Ethernet switches has been updated to include unmanaged models that will support either 4- or 8-pin M12 twisted pair cable, as well as 4- and 5-pin 7/8-16UN power cable. The 4-pin switch is suitable for EtherNet/IP applications with both managed and unmanaged options, while the 8-pin switch is suitable for standard Ethernet applications.

The fully encapsulated switches are capable of information transfer and real-time I/O control in harsh duty locations. The switches support 10/100 Base-T with twisted pair Ethernet cable. The unmanaged switches are available with 5 or 9 ports, while the managed switch is available with 9 ports, one of which is used as a RS-232 configuration port.

Switches are simple to set up by applying power and connecting devices to the ports. A managed switch supports IGMP, RSTP, SNMP and V-LAN and may be configured by the RS-232 serial configuration port or by an internal Web page.
