Today, it is nearly impossible for industries to function without good-quality network switches. Industrial fiber switches are gaining traction for the obvious advantages they offer. Versitron manufactures a range of industrial fiber switches in terms of configurations and number of ports. Our industrial switches with fiber optic technology significantly increase the traffic flow and network speed. They are designed to withstand harsh environments and a huge range of temperature variations. Our switches are resistant to vibration, electrical humming, and shock. These switches have a long lifespan with MTBF rates approaching 15 years. At Versitron, we are extremely customer-oriented and have a personalized approach to help you meet your goals.
Industrial fiber switches are the intermediate devices that enable conversion between Ethernet networking devices and fiber optic cable. These industrial network switches offer on and off control to input and output data transmission.
VERSITRON being a prominent manufacturer and supplier of fiber optic technology and related products, we offer a range of industrial fiber switches with ruggedized construction. Our industrial fiber switches are manufactured in compliance with MSA standards.
Our industrial ruggedized switches are suitable for use in environments, where they may be exposed to high temperatures, high vibration, and tactical operating environments. These hardened devices can withstand an operational temperature range of -40°C to 75°C. The robust construction of these switches makes them highly immune to vibrations, shocks, and harsh environmental impact. Hardened switches are ideal for use in outdoor industrial areas, hazardous locations, and managed or unmanaged networks.
Industrial Ethernet-to-Fiber switches help in rectifying the errors and limitations of regular Ethernet network utilization. The following are the benefits offered by VERSITRON’S industrial Ethernet switches that make them worth using in the Ethernet network.
Therefore, to achieve controlled and targeted data transmission, industrial network switches must be used.
Versitron offers industrial ruggedized switches in a variety of configurations and number of ports. The ports usually range from four to ten. Here are some other features of our industrial switches:
Along with the industrial PoE switches, we offer managed and unmanaged types of industrial switches with fiber-optic network compatibility.
Both types of Ethernet switches are used in different types of industrial applications.
Ethernet switches are compatible with several types of industrial networking devices, but the devices are linked together in a certain type of networking structure. Networking structure is basically a device connection route that enables inter-communication between different networking devices. The topology being used to interconnect the networking devices signifies the networking structure of the Ethernet application. It is important to ensure the compatibility of industrial ruggedized switches with fiber optic networking devices in order to achieve seamless and error-free data transmission via the networking structure.
Therefore, industrial switch networking structures are defined based on the type of Ethernet switch and switch properties. The networking structure comprises two types of switches such as managed and unmanaged switches. Generally, managed industrial Ethernet switches can be used in redundant networks because they permit parameter configuration and also support simple network management protocols and VLAN connections. However, unmanaged industrial Ethernet switches are suitable for network structures with constant parameters and data transmission performance. Unmanaged switches identify the data transmission speed automatically, therefore are highly suitable for networking structured demanding controlled data transmission.
However, all of our managed and unmanaged Ethernet switches are compatible with certain types of network structures and topologies. Therefore, they are used in several industrial applications.
VERSITRON’S industrial switches are specifically found in the following applications:
