Lite Managed Industrial Ethernet Switch - GECKO

With a combination of managed and unmanaged switches, GECKO switches are ideally suited for use in smaller networks or on the edge of larger installations. With the proper level of management functionality included, you can configure and monitor the switches without needing any special IT know-how.

 GECKO 8TX and 8TX/2SFP

Powering your industrial network can be just as complex as it is costly. That’s why Hirschmann’s GECKO Lite Managed switch provides a cost-effective solution to integrators seeking to employ managed switches for security, diagnostic and redundancy functions. Backed by various industrial protocols, the compact switch offers more port options and bandwidth capabilities.

  • Consolidate infrastructure and lower lifecycle costs through its space-saving design and environmentally friendly power consumption.
  • Seamlessly integrate and manage systems with simple configuration and remote monitoring capabilities
  • Optimize network performance and reliability through more port options with increased bandwidth and robust hardware
  • Up to eight Fast Ethernet ports (10/100 Mbit/s) and two Gigabit SFP (100/1000 Mbit/s) slots with inactive port disablement
  • Advanced redundancy protocols: RTSP and MRP
  • Optimal security: VLANs and MAC-based Port Security
  • Industrial protocols: PROFINET and EtherNet/IP
  • Comprehensive remote or on-site management: SNMP, HiDiscovery/Industrial HiVision
