Managed Industrial Ethernet Switches
Compact DIN Rail Switches
Specifically designed to connect devices in network environments that are subject to extreme operating temperatures of -40°C to 75°C, vibrations, and shocks, Perle has over 516 models of Managed Industrial Ethernet Switches. They are built to exceed the specifications of commercial switches with industrial safety certification and approval for hazardous locations, making them ideal for the harsh environments found in factory and industrial automation, marine, rail and intelligent transportation systems (ITSs), oil and gas, mining and outdoor applications.
Perle IDS Managed Switches come with Enterprise-grade features, extensive security, QoS, and network integration functionality:
- PROFINET and Modbus TCP protocols supported for monitoring and device management
- Ring Protocol MRP (IEC 62439-2) for <10ms recovery time
- STP/RSTP/MSTP for network redundancy
- TACACS+ and RADIUS authentication, authorization and accounting (AAA) security services
- SSH, SNMPv3, and HTTPS secure management sessions
- IEEE 1588 V1 and V2 PTP for microsecond accuracy
- Protection of User Access Ports through IEEE 802.1x Authentication and Port Security
- Advanced protocols to optimize the performance and intelligence of the network: IGMP Snooping, LLDP-MED, GVRP, Voice VLANs, MSTP, GMRP, and IPv6 MLD Snooping.
The quality of your Industrial Ethernet Switch will affect the uptime of your network. Perle products are cost-effective, easy to install, flexible and manufactured to the highest available quality standards.Choose an Industrial Ethernet Switch that is made with robust and reliable components.
Perle IDS Switches only use high-end components from leading western chip manufacturers to ensure product reliability.Choose an Industrial Temperature Ethernet Switch that is made with industrial Temperature Components.
Every component used in Perle Industrial Temperature Ethernet Switches have been designed and tested to handle operating temperatures between -40 and 75°C. Many Ethernet switch manufacturers claim -40 to 75°C but use commercial parts which will severely limit the reliability and lifecycle of the product. Product failures become inevitable when “commercial-grade” parts are exposed to extremely high or low temperatures. For example, integrated circuits on the PCB overheat causing premature failure of the product. Under-rated connectors do not allow for proper contact between the device and the cables. These failures eventually stop all data communications in these high and low temperature environments.Choose a manufacturer that builds Standards-Based switches.
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 conditionsPerle 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.Choose an Industrial Switch manufacturer with technical engineers you can speak to before you purchase.
