TURCK LAUNCHES IP67 MANAGED ETHERNET SWITCH FOR DECENTRALIZED CONTROL

Device offers Gigabit and standard ports in the same device

Turck, a manufacturer of sensors, connectivity and fieldbus technology for factory, logistics and process automation, today announced it launched the TBEN-Lx-SE-M2, a rugged IP67 managed Ethernet switch.




Managed Ethernet switches help enable safer and more efficient industrial networking. IP67 switches are used directly on a machine so users can configure, manage, and monitor connected machines and devices remotely, ourside of a control cabinet. Turck now offers a more rugged version with two high-speed back-bone ports (Gbit) in addition to eight standard ports (100 Mbits).



The TBEN-Lx-SE-M2 is ideal for the most robust industrial environments such as for tool changes in machine tools, robot applications in automotive manufacturing, and for use on mobile equipment. It features IP67/IP69K ratings and a wide operating temperature range for decentralized installation outside of the control cabinet.
