KV Unmanaged Switches

SPIDER PoE Switches

The entry-level rail switches of the SPIDER PoE range allow both simple integration of devices such as IP phones into networks as well as flexible and efficient expansion of networks. Separate power supply units and power cables can thus be dispensed with.

  • Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) allows simple and economical network expansion
  • Easy to operate, thanks to plug-and-work, LEDs to signal the device status, and visualization using the network management software Industrial HiVision
  • Rugged design that can withstand even harsh environments

Your Benefits

With SPIDER PoE switches, you don't need to lay any power cables or purchase separate power supply units in order to expand your communication infrastructure. Hirschmann switches also give you maximum flexibility: for short distances to the end devices they can be cascaded to any depth; and if you need to cover distances up to 30 km, there are a number of versions with fiber optic ports. The SPIDER PoE switches also have a lot to offer when it comes to withstanding environmental conditions, from their high resistance to impacts, vibration and interference, to their extended operating temperature range.

Hirschmann™ Entry Level Rail-Switches SPIDER PoE

Depending on the model, SPIDER PoE unmanaged switches, which are available as powered devices (PD) or power sourcing equipment (PSE), offer between two and eight Fast Ethernet ports (10/100BASE-TX), including optional fiber-optic ports (100BASE-FX) for single and multimode fibers. Up to four PoE ports are available, each with a capacity of 15.4 W. All models fulfill the requirements for IP30 and have passive (fanless) cooling. The PSE switches are designed for an operating temperature range of -10°C to +60°C, and the PD variants for -40°C to +70°C. Thanks to their compact dimensions (35 x 154 x 121 and 25 x 100 x 70 mm respectively), either version can easily be installed in a switch cabinet. Their special approvals include E13, C-Tick Declaration and the GOST-R Certificate (PSE only).

The entry-level rail switches of the SPIDER PoE range are in their element in numerous industries, such as automated systems in factories, processing plants, traffic control and building technology, or in mechanical and plant engineering, because they comply with all the relevant industry standards. Among their other advantages, they also carry E13 approval for use in motor vehicles, where they can be used to network and power video cameras and display systems. However and wherever SPIDER PoE switches are used, they always guarantee economical solutions, thanks to their relatively low acquisition and installation costs and the fact that they require absolutely no maintenance.

Product Description

Wherever devices are to be connected to the network via unmanaged switches, the SPIDER PoE range is the ideal choice, because its various designs allow a variety of scenarios to be implemented: SPIDER PD (powered device) variants are powered via the data line for fast and cost-effective network expansion. The SPIDER II 8TX PoE is an example of power sourcing equipment (PSE), making it the range's real "power station." This switch ensures that PD variants, and other network users such as IP cameras or phones, can be operated without separate power supply units or power cables. Both of these models can be mounted on DIN rails and rapidly taken into service in line with the plug-and-work principle. LEDs on the front panel display the power supply status, network connection and data rate, and these SPIDER PoE switches can also be visualized using the Hirschmann™ network management software Industrial HiVision.
