Product description

The Gigabit Modular Switch is a high-performance managed switch, which covers the port requirements of industrial applications in a modular and flexible way. It also supports all popular Gigabit and Fast Ethernet transmission standards, IT standard protocols, and the PROFINET and EtherNet/IP™ automation protocols. For use in the production backbone or automation cell, the FL SWITCH GHS 4G/12 has four integrated Gigabit ports, which can either be used via SFP modules or twisted pair connections. In addition to the four integrated 100 Mbps TX ports, up to 16 more 100 Mbps ports can be used via interface modules.

The switch can be configured as a router using the integrated Layer 3 license. The GHS switch can be routed into up to 28 different subnetworks. It can also be operated as a redundant router using VRRP (Virtual Redundancy Routing Protocol) .
