Industrial Ethernet Switches
8, 9 or 10-port Fast Ethernet & Gigabit Switches
Industrial-grade Ethernet Switches are specifically designed to connect devices in network environments that are subject to -40°C to 75°C operating temperatures, vibrations, and shocks. They are built to exceed the specifications of commercial switches with industrial safety certification and approval for hazardous locations, making them ideal for use at sites with harsh environmental conditions such as:
- industrial and factory automation
- outdoor applications
- rail and intelligent transportation systems (ITSs),
- oil and gas
Perle has over 734 models of easy to configure and install DIN Rail Ethernet Switches that feature Industrial Protocol Management support, superior reliability, advanced security, and network redundancy. The IDS Switch portfolio includes support for 10/100/1000 Ethernet and fiber in unmanaged switches, managed switches, and PoE switches.
Perle IDS Managed Switches have enterprise-grade features that include PROFINET and Modbus TCP Protocol support for monitoring and device management, Ring protocol MRP IEC 62439-2 for <10ms recovery time, STP/RSTP/MSTP for network redundancy, IGMP Snooping, QoS, VLAN, TACACS+, RADIUS, IEEE 802.1X authentication, SSH, SNMPv3, HTTPS, and IEEE 1588 PTP.
Perle IDS PoE Managed Switches are classified as Layer 2 Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE), that can supply up to 100W Power over Ethernet (PoE) to standards-based 802.3af, 802.3at and 802.3bt compliant devices such as pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) security cameras with heaters, 802.11ax/ac wireless access points, alarms, traffic controllers, sensors, and tracking devices.
Perle IDS Industrial Unmanaged Switches comply with the stringent standards required for operational reliability in the harsh environments found in industrial Ethernet infrastructures.
Why Choose a Perle IDS Industrial Switch?
Perle Knows Industrial
We have been designing industrial hardware for Modbus and PROFINET to ethernet conversion for over 40 years. This expertise has been used to design the toughest Ethernet switches on the market. Perle IDS-300 and IDS-500 Switches with the PRO feature set can be managed via PLC, NMS, HMI or SCADA systems using PROFINET or Modbus TCP. In addition, MRP (IEC 62439-2) provides fast convergence in an industrial ring network topology.
Many manufacturers claim -40°C to 75°C but use commercial parts that will fail in environments with extremely high or low temperatures. Integrated PCB circuits will overheat and under-rated connectors will not allow for proper contact between the device and cables. To prevent this, every component used in Perle Industrial Temperature Switches has been designed and tested to handle operating temperatures between -40°C and 75°C.
To ensure that the system will operate with other Ethernet-enabled devices and IP applications, Perle IDS Switches use IEEE standards-based protocols. This also facilitates integration between industrial equipment and business office applications. These industry-recognized standards ensure the highest level of durability and adaptability under harsh environmental conditions.
