Managed Ethernet switches optimised for industrial environments

04 February 2014

The new managed Ha-VIS mCon 3000 Ethernet switches from HARTING enable the construction of complex and efficient network structures, and are optimised for use in harsh industrial environments.

The high demands on reliability and safety in industrial settings mean that managed Ethernet switches need to be more efficient. The new HARTING switches address this by offering high availability, network security, monitoring capabilities and high reliability.
Integration of the PROFINET I/O device stack enables the switches to be deployed seamlessly into existing and newly planned PROFINET applications.  In addition to RSTP (Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol), the new switches also incorporate the Media Redundancy Protocol (MRP) to create redundant topologies. Reduced cycle times and faster processes necessitate the synchronisation of participants in plants. The Precision Time Protocol (PTP Version 2, IEEE 1588) provides the highest possibly accuracy, and is also supported by the new mCon 3000 switches.
