For wired Ethernet connectivity at the edge: With Kontron‘s KSwitch family, Rutronik offers a key component to industrial communication

Ispringen, November 2021 – Specially designed for harsh industrial environments: Kontron‘s KSwitch product family represents a new generation of industrial-strength Ethernet switches (Fast, Gigabit or even future 10 G Gigabit) for wired Ethernet connectivity at the edge. Eleven different series enable a wide range of configurations for various fields of application, e. g. industrial automation, IIoT, infrastructure and communication. The modern single-chip design combines reliability and cost efficiency with a plus in performance, reduced power consumption and smaller size. The entire KSwitch product family is available at www.rutronik24.com.

The KSwitch series offer various product configurations: from rack to DIN rail mounting, with or without PoE injection, cost-effective unmanaged solutions, as well as switches to be managed via web interface.

All models can be used in industrial environments with a high temperature range. The standard RJ45 connectors and SFPs simplify the selection and use of cables and fibre optics.
