Hirschmann’s SPIDER III Premium Line switches are powerful, robust and flexible. With many advanced features, these switches can reliably transmit data across long distances, while still remaining cost-effective. They also meet many required industry-specific standards to enable their use across many industries.
The Hirschmann SPIDER III Premium Line allows you to quickly and easily configure basic switching parameters through the device’s USB interface and the Switch Programming Tool software – available for both Windows and Linux operating systems. As an unmanaged switch, the SPIDER III Premium’s plug-and-play nature makes installation easy and gets your networks up and running faster. For networks with unique needs, the switch can also be customized for any use case. Through the USB interface, you can also turn off unused ports to better secure the network and enable or disable the transmission of large data packets (jumbo frames) to increase network efficiency.
The Premium Line of SPIDER III switches meets a wide range of market-specific certifications, standards and approvals, making it ideal for use in a variety of industrial settings. Specific approvals include use in the process industry (ISA12.12.01, ATEX Class 2), transportation applications (EN 50121-4 and E1 standards for road vehicles) and marine applications (Navy GL and DNV).
SPIDER III Premium Line switches not only offer the cost benefits that come with an unmanaged switch, but they also have the flexibility and ruggedness to support any industrial environment.
With up to nine available ports, you can select the port types that meet your application needs, including Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet and fiber optic ports. The ruggedized IP40 metal enclosure also protects the switches against harsh environments.
In addition to meeting many industry standards, the switches are designed to regulate energy depending on network traffic through the Energy Efficient Ethernet standard. This low-power feature uses less energy when there is no data moving through the network, which ultimately saves you money.
The SPIDER III Premium Line is designed to offer cost-effective, unmanaged switches with a robust set of customizable features to meet individual network needs across a variety of industries. Network administrators can easily install and configure these switches without receiving any special training.
