Wieland electric is expanding the range of solutions for industrial networks by a 16 port Light Managed Ethernet Switch for factory automation. wienet LMS 16 W offers a straightforward and cost-sensitive solution for centralised network management. The switch combines the advantages of completely unmanaged and complex-to-parametrize fully manageable switches.
wienet LMS 16-W features 16 Fast Ethernet ports with auto MDI/MDI-X for the connection of terminal equipment and (backbone) network. SCADA systems are addressed via Modbus TCP, SNMP is used to communicate with network management systems. Port-based QoS for deterministic data transmission allows a prioritisation of individual ports by the user. Jumbo Frame support up to 2,048 bytes ensures proper forwarding of nonstandard or oversized frames.
Thanks to the wide operating temperature range of -40 °C to 75 °C and robust metal housing with protection degree IP30 as well as excellent EMC properties, wienet LMS 16-W can be used under extreme environmental conditions. The redundant 8.4 V / 52.8 V DC power supply inputs with signalling relay increase resilience and open up a wide range of possible applications. In addition to wienet LMS 16-W, Wieland Electric now offers a compact 5-port switch and an 8-port power over Ethernet switch.
