Hirschmann OCTOPUS IP65/67 Managed Switches

IP65/IP67 waterproof and dust-tight switches from the OCTOPUS family allow fail-safe networks to be installed in a variety of application scenarios, even under the most difficult conditions.

The switches in the OCTOPUS family meet application-specific regulations, including EN 50155 for operating conditions in railway vehicles, EN 50121-4 for use along railway lines, EN 45545 for fire protection in trains, GL for ships, and e1 for use in road vehicles.

Versions with Power over Ethernet (PoE) support allow these devices to be powered via a data cable, meaning no special PoE power supplies and no additional power cables are needed.

Introducing Full Gigabit Managed OCTOPUS IP67 Ethernet Switches  

Industrial engineers must ensure their networks keep up with rapidly expanding data demands and operate in harsh conditions, without jeopardizing performance. To meet these heightened bandwidth expectations, engineers must respond with a powerful, adaptable solution for their network. The Full Gigabit managed OCTOPUS PoE switches come equipped with full Gigabit Ethernet capability on all ports to deliver on this market need and optimize network performance in harsh, condensed operating settings. In addition, these configurable devices are also equipped with internally generated Power over Ethernet (PoE) voltage to supply connected devices without requiring cabling.

  • Robust Compact Housing: The OCTOPUS family ensures the highest industrial protection ratings (IP67/IP65) regarding mechanical stress, humidity, dirt, dust, shock and vibrations. Capable of withstanding heat, cold and adheres to the strictest fire prevention requirements.
  • Extended Feature Range: Managed OCTOPUS switches range from 8 to 28 ports. Gigabit versions are also available that feature vibration-resistant M12 connectors for twisted pair cables or fiber-optic ports according to IEC 63076-3-106 v1/v4.
  • Configurable: The online configurator offers rapid selection of the switch that works best for your application.
  • Protocol Support: Models now available that support Profinet, EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP
  • Power over Ethernet: Versions with PoE/PoE+ support allow these devices to be powered via a data cable.
  • Supported Software: Basic, Advanced and Professional software versions which provide management, diagnostic and filtering features as well as seamless redundancy methods and security mechanisms of varying degrees.
  • Approved for Transportation Use: The managed OCTOPUS family meets application-specific regulations for use in railway vehicles, along railway lines, for fire protection in trains and in road vehicles.
