The FL SWITCH 7008-EIP is a managed Ethernet switch suitable for industrial applications with eight Fast Ethernet ports in RJ45 format. The switches communicate directly via the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) in the EtherNet/IP™ network. Via CIP, the switch can be integrated into an EtherNet/IP™ control system from where it can be configured and diagnosed. Multicast functions which are important for EtherNet/IP™, such as IGMP snooping, multicast source detection, and auto query port, are also available.
The switch can also be used universally in other automation networks. For maximum network availability, the switches support the non-proprietary Device Level Ring (DLR) redundancy protocol for EtherNet/IP™ with switch-over times <3 ms. In addition, the switch supports Rapid Spanning Tree (RSTP) with fast ring detection (FRD) extension. Thanks to the extended temperature range of -40 °C to 70 °C and the robust metal housing, it can also be used in harsh industrial environments.
