From over 100 water- and dust-resistant versions you may rapidly select the ideal OCTOPUS switch for your individual application. Irrespective of which switch you choose, you are guaranteed fail-safe data communication, due to a robust design.
The OCTOPUS family includes Ethernet switches and routers with 5 up to 28 ports. Twisted pair connections for Gigabit Ethernet are designed with "X"-coded M12, for Fast Ethernet with "D"-coded M12 and fiber optic connections with sockets according to IEC. Depending on the selected scope of services, the software offers management, diagnostic and filtering features as well as redundancy methods and security mechanisms of varying degrees. All switches are characterized by a waterproof and dust-resistant housing and an extended temperature range from -40°C to +70°C.
The OCTOPUS family can be used anywhere where reliable and efficient data transmission has to be assured at all times, even under the harshest conditions. Thanks to their robust and compact design, the switches can be mounted – without any protective housing – both on a wall or directly on a machine. Even water, dirt, dust, vibrations or excessive mechanical stress don’t affect them. In addition, OCTOPUS switches can also withstand extreme heat and cold. Apart from unmanaged devices, managed versions are also offered with different scopes of services installed. Last but not least, the OCTOPUS family also offers PoE switches, which can be used to power devices directly via a data cable.
OCTOPUS switches are ideally suited for use in trains or buses. This is precisely where robust and space-saving solutions are essential – solutions which can be used to network IP cameras, infotainment systems or wireless LAN applications for example, offering passengers greater safety and convenience. Likewise in engineering, where the most stringent demands are also placed on the stress-bearing capacity of the network devices, OCTOPUS family switches guarantee highly available and durable installations.
