Managed Industrial DIN Rail Fast/Gigabit Ethernet Switches – RSPE-Expandable


Thanks to a range of media modules, the managed industrial Ethernet switches in the RSPE family offer maximum flexibility, a future-proof network design and best-possible investment protection.

Standardized redundancy protocols with no data loss technology, combined with comprehensive security mechanisms, precise synchronization and optional Layer 3 software, ensure 100 percent availability for data communication and high productivity for systems and machines.

  • Future-proof design and best-possible investment protection – thanks to the maximum flexibility provided by the media modules
  • Maximum productivity for machines and systems – thanks to completely interruption-free data communication and precise time synchronization, via which applications with hard real-time requirements can be reliably networked
  • All-around protection against network attacks and operating errors - through extensive management, diagnostic and filter functions as well as numerous security mechanisms
  • Up to 28 ports, thereof 24 Fast Ethernet plus 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports for twisted pair cable and fiber optic cable (via SFP)
  • Router redundancy, static port and VLAN based routing for increased reliability and security
  • Reliable networking of applications with rigorous real-time requirements thanks to precise time synchronization in accordance with IEEE 1588 v2
  • Cost-effective powering of devices via PoE/PoE+
  • Broad immunity to electrostatic discharges plus high vibration resistance
  • Operating temperature range from -40° C to +70° C (standard model: 0°C to +60°C)
  • Compact stainless steel housing for DIN rail mounting
  • Special certifications:
    - Energy sector: IEC 61850-3, IEEE 1613
    - Hazardous areas: ISA-12.12.-01 Class 1 Div. 2 Group A, B, C, D
    - Safety applications: EN61131, EN60950, UL61010-1/-2-201
    - Marine: GL - Germanischer Lloyd Compass Safe Distance
    - Transportation: NEMA TS2, EN 50121-4

The RSPE switches are the devices of choice whenever future-proof solutions are required to deliver maximum network availability even under extreme environmental conditions. Specially certified for a range of application scenarios, the switches guarantee highly available and cost-effective applications in the energy sector – from power transmission and distribution through to power generation from renewable energy sources.

They can be used equally well in other branches of industry:

  • Transportation
  • Road and rail traffic
  • Cable cars
  • Ports
  • Airports
