Unmanaged OCTOPUS Switches

The unmanaged switches in the OCTOPUS family can be used to set up cost-effective connections to Ethernet terminal devices even under the harshest environmental conditions. PoE versions can power terminal devices operating in even the most challenging environments directly via the Ethernet cable, doing away with the need for additional power supply units.

Unmanaged Ethernet switches accommodate the need for easy-to-implement solutions in small industrial network applications.
