April 10, 2018 – Phoenix Contact’s FL SWITCH 2000 line is designed to bridge the gap between unmanaged switches and complex managed devices. The switches in the 2000 line feature configuration, remote monitoring, and communications options.
The 2000/2100 series gives machine builders a switch with multicast filter functions and redundancy mechanisms to reduce the data load in the network and maintain communications even in the event of a Layer 1 failure. The devices can be configured via an SD card, a Command Line Interface (CLI), or the smart mode button located on the device.
The 2200/2300 series is designed for more complex automation applications in harsh conditions, such as process, marine, infrastructure, and wind energy. The switches feature a higher-function firmware, a temperature range of -40°C to +70°C, configurable alarm contact, and redundant power inputs. The switches can be used in Ex Zone 2 according to ATEX and IECEx. They also have shipbuilding approvals DNV GL, ABS, LR, BV, and RINA.
The 2000 switches feature key functions for PROFINET and EtherNet/IP applications, and are available in Gigabit variants for applications that demand high data throughput.
