Wired industrial communication

Phoenix Contact developed a complete range of flexible and scalable industrial Ethernet solutions, optimized for industrial environments and capable of meeting the most diverse application requirements; all of these solutions are grouped into the Factoryline family. This includes, for instance, a vast choice of wired solutions, available both in managed and non-managed versions. The single devices may be distinguished according to their size, number and type of connections via copper wire and/or fiber, as well as based on the data transmission speed (Fast Ethernet or Giga Ethernet). It is also possible to choose among different degrees of protection (IP20 or IP67) and, in the case of switch managed devices, among various supported redundancy protocols, type of security management and NAT routing function.Besides, in order to satisfy further technical requirements by a strong and performing network, Phoenix Contact developed a series of complementary devices, starting from Industrial Hubs and Repeaters, right up to the Industrial routers, without neglecting a complete range of converters, both of the copper fiber type and interface, from serial to Ethernet. Effective modules for Power over Ethernet, specific galvanic insulators and Ethernet extenders are also available.
