Phoenix Contact‘s new generation of unmanaged ethernet switches from the FL Switch 1000 series offer a narrower housing, greater port density, and best-in-class automation protocol traffic prioritisation.
The first five variants of the refreshed portfolio are exclusively copper ports, with fibre optic models soon to follow later this year.
Both gigabit and fast ethernet models will be included in the initial roll-out, enabling applications of different bandwidths in a variety of industries. With the help of a unique mounting accessory, the FL Switch 1000 series can also be mounted flat on the DIN rail, enabling use in small or flat cabinets with little space. Thanks to Energy Efficient Ethernet, these switches will also feature a reduced power consumption, which will lessen heat and the overall footprint of the device.
