Real-time switch for Profinet

21 November 2012

The FL Switch IRT real-time switches are part of the Factory Line family from Phoenix Contact, and are designed for use in Profinet networks. Profinet applications are accommodated through the built-in Ertec technology.

Further, cut-through switching results in short latency times when forwarding data packets. The switches feature an integrated Profinet IO device which allows for full configuration and monitoring via the Profinet controller. The devices are equipped with either two or three polymer fibre ports, providing the basis for interference-free, diagnostic-capable fiber optic systems. Thanks to their compact design, the switches readily fit into flat control cabinets.
