Robust switch for use in the field

WIELAND Electric says its new IP67 Ethernet switch enables reliable operation even under the most adverse environmental conditions

Modular and flexible machine concepts are growing rapidly in importance. As this happens, more and more automation parts are being connected in a way that is not centralised. This also applies to IP switches, which are no longer only mounted in the control cabinet, but also directly onto the machine. To ensure that network components operate reliably under these conditions, the devices must meet stringent specifications as they are directly exposed to potentially harmful influences such as dust, moisture, and electromagnetic radiation. Wieland Electric offers a suitable solution to this with its new IP67 switch.

The wienet IP-SWITCH UMS 8-W-M12 is equipped with a robust metal housing and can therefore be used under the most adverse environmental conditions.
